Cheapest cars to insure: Peugeot Bipper Tepee

Here’s an interesting option for motorists wanting to minimise their insurance costs.

Here’s an interesting option for motorists wanting to minimise their insurance costs. The Bipper Tepee is the quaintly titled creation that came about when Peugeot stuffed some seats into the back of its Bipper light van. The commercial vehicle origins will deter some but the tough interior, impressive space and 1.3 HDi diesel engine make it a desirable rarity within the confines of insurance group 2.

The Peugeot Bipper Tepee is the same car as the Citroen Nemo Multispace and Fiat Qubo. It's based on a van and is the smallest of Peugeot's Tepee family of MPVs, which includes the Partner and Expert. The boxy design provides lots of space, and there's sliding doors, too.

There's just one diesel engine, which thanks to the standard-fit stop-start system is capable of returning 65.5mpg and emitting 119g/km of CO2. It has a 0-62mph time of 16.8 seconds and a top speed of 99mph. A five-speed manual gearbox is fitted as standard, but a five-speed automatic is available for a premium of around £800. 

The Bipper Tepee has a 356-litre boot, which increases to 737 litres with the rear seats down. The seats split, fold and tumble. They can also be removed completely, although this isn't the easiest of tasks as the seats are heavy. The sliding doors make accessing the rear seats easy, even in tight parking spaces.
