The Honda Tarneo has claimed the top spot of car thefts in NZ according to AA Insurance, saying that although the probability of the Honda Torneos being stolen is far higher than any other car there are no more of them on the road than any other vehicle.
The top 10 list is based on AA insurance's data:
The data reveals 92% of theft claims for models in the top 10 list were for cars manufactured more than 10 years ago, with the average value of a stolen vehicle claim from the top 10 list is $5120.
"Thieves will always go for the easiest, fastest option," says the AA. Despite vehicle theft remaining a concern, the figures have been relatively consistent over the past three years.
