Discover the list of the 10 least stolen cars in Quebec

There's a lot of talk about car theft these days. One good way to protect yourself is to choose a model that thieves will avoid.

The vehicle reflects the lifestyle choices of consumers. For some, it's just a vehicle that gets them from point A to point B. For others, it is the embodiment of driving pleasure, or even their social status. One fact remains: certain models are very popular with consumers and… thieves.

Concretely, you can protect your car with GPS, lock the steering wheel, tag the car, and park it in lighted areas: thieves don't care, because they have more than one trick up their sleeve.

The list of least-theft vehicles published by insurance companies includes a mix of hybrids and hybrids, but the majority are sedans, which are often small cars.

Obviously, people who like big SUVs will be disappointed. I realize I'm hitting a chord, but you may want to choose a less plump model.

Especially since these vehicles offer two undeniable advantages: they are very economical to drive, and they are less susceptible to theft.

Almost never stolen

This also applies to 100% electric cars: my car costs me $7-$15 a week to cover 25,000 kilometers a year. Sure, it costs more to buy and insure an electric car (a matter of parts and labor availability), but the savings fully outweigh these disadvantages. And no, you will never run out of energy.

Take the case of Tesla cars: A report from the Highway Loss Data Institute indicates that they are 90% less likely to be stolen than thermal cars, and that when they do happen, they are almost always found. Why? Because you can track the car on your phone and deactivate it remotely.

The theft rates for BMW i3 Series, Nissan Leaf or Hyundai Ioniq are also close to zero.

Bonus argument: The sale prices of frequently stolen F150s, Grand Cherokees, Gladiators, and Highlanders are easily comparable to those of electric cars, after subsidies.

In conclusion, a vehicle is stolen every six minutes in the country, and it is hardly an electric car or model that appears in the table accompanying this article.

  • Install a tracking system (Boomerang) or a telematics system (Ajusto), preferably the one suggested by your insurance company: you will save on insurance.
  • Never leave the ignition keys in the car, even for a few minutes (yes, some still do that). Place your smart keys in a storage bag or case specially designed to prevent waves, or store them away from the front door. If possible, install security cameras that point to your parking lot. Do not leave any items in the passenger compartment.
  • If your car is stolen, call the police immediately and…your insurance company.
