If you’re looking for a new 67-plate car, you’re spoiled for choice with all the new models released recently. We’ve rounded up some of the latest offerings to help you decide on your next set of wheels — whether you’re looking for a compact runaround or a luxury SUV, there’s something for everyone.

And no matter what your upfront budget, don’t forget to compare insurance quotes and consider each car’s insurance group as this can significantly affect the cost of cover over the years.

Each car is assigned an insurance group from 1-50 — the lower the group number, the less it typically costs to insure (dependent on other factors such as your driving history). For more information on insurance groups and a list of some of the cheapest cars to insure, read our guide here. And if you’re looking for cars that are cheap to run, check out our list of fuel-efficient cars.

Price: From £27,500

The all-new Koleos is a complete upgrade from the first-generation model, which was introduced in 2007. Another 5-seater SUV, it’s likely to compete with the new Stelvio from Alfa Romeo.

The new Koleos is available to order now, but insurance groups are yet to be announced. As a large SUV, it’s likely to be towards the top end of the insurance group scale.

Mini Countryman
Mini-Countryman

Price: From £22,465

Mini’s largest model yet, the Countryman, is available to order now. Stretching the ‘Mini’ moniker to its limit, the new Countryman is actually an SUV set to compete with the likes of the Nissan Qashqai.

The new Mini Countryman has models in insurance groups 17-25, depending on engine size and trim level.

 

Renault Zoe
Renault Zoe

Price: From £18,995

The new all-electric version of Renault’s popular Zoe is currently available in showrooms. The new version has an impressive 250-mile range on a single charge, with new colours and trims available.

The new Suzuki Ignis, marketed as a compact 4×4, is one of the more affordable choices you can make if you’re looking for a brand-new 67-plate car, with a starting price less than £10,000.

Nissan Micra
All-New Nissan Micra

Price: From £11,995

A firm favourite since its first generation was released back in the 80s, a new Nissan Micra was released on 1 March.

Kia’s updated Rio is now available, at the same starting price as the Nissan Micra. The new Rio is a supermini in the same class as Volkswagen’s Polo and the ever-popular Ford Fiesta.

Price: From £16,995

The Hyundai i30 is an updated family hatchback and went on sale from 1 March. It’s available with a range of engine sizes, from a 1.0-litre petrol to a 1.6-litre diesel option.
