In the battle between Holden versus Ford, Holden comes out on top – at least for many Budget Direct car insurance customers.

The low cost insurance provider has released a list of the Top 5 vehicle models it insured over the past 12 months. Holden Commodore headed the list in number one position in all states covered by Budget Direct, while rival Ford Falcon was second in Victoria, Queensland, ACT, South Australia and Western Australia, pipped by Toyota Corolla in New South Wales and Toyota Hilux in Tasmania.

The Budget Direct Top 5 list provides a snapshot of what we’re insuring , says Kimberley Moody, Communications Manager, Budget Direct. 

“It appears Holden rules the roads for many Budget Direct customers,” says Ms Moody.  “These aren’t just new cars; they are vehicles of all ages so it will be very interesting to see how the list changes over the coming years and whether Holden Commodore can maintain its pole position.”
