Most Dangerous Cars to Drive in South Africa 2022
There are various risks involved in being a motorist. The potential of accidents, petrol prices skyrocketing and general maintenance problems. Unfortunately, in South Africa, hijacking rates have increased by over 10% in recent times. It is, therefore, important that you manage your risks accordingly.
SAPS records show that carjackings increased by 13.8% between October 2021 and December 2021 alone when compared to 2020 statistics. Additionally, Business Tech states that hatchbacks are at most risk with bakkies coming in at a close second. So, we did some research, and these three cars appear on all the lists of cars most likely to be stolen in South Africa:
1. Volkswagen Polo
2. Toyota Fortuner
3. Toyota Hilux
The likeliness of being hijacked changes from province to province. Gauteng is the province in which carjackings are most prominent. With very few carjackers being caught (as reported by News 24) insurance companies are at the forefront of this risk management. Keep in mind that not all risks are the same. Driving a high-risk vehicle means that it is vital to make sure that you are with the broker that makes the most sense for you.
Comparing prices and services is the best way to make sure that you have the right fit.
