According to the insurers (resource “Alstromeria”), the probability of car theft depends on several factors:
• Presence alarm, anti-theft system;
• The popularity of machines and the need for its spare parts;
• The age of the vehicle;
• A system for a steering wheel lock.
This confirms the TOP 10 brands of stolen cars:
10. Land Rover.
The most stolen cars usually are those models which are easily lost in the traffic. That is why the ranking of stolen cars you will not find a Maserati, Lamborghini, and other manufacturers of luxury cars. Besides, they sold much less and too small to be ranked.
Also not to mention that the advanced age of the car does not always reduce the probability of theft. According to statistics, stolen vehicles, models produced in the ‘ 90s, or early 2000s, enjoyed considerable popularity, due to the high needs in detail.
