Car theft Ontario

When you’re on the look out for cheap car insurance, there are so many things that factor in to the rates that you end up paying (we’ve covered four of the most common here).

Did you know that the car that you drive plays a role?

Insurers consider vehicles based on the likelihood that they will be involved in a car insurance claim.

And one common clause for making a claim is having your car stolen.

So in this post let’s look at the vehicle theft rates in our province and which specific cars topped the list as the most stolen in Ontario in 2020.

So what are the takeaways that IBC has gleaned from this list? For one, we can see that electronic theft is on the rise as all the vehicles are newer. Thieves have figured out keyless entry, using wireless transmitter devices to unlock cars. We can also see that high-end vehicles figure prominently, indicating that the market for overseas export is strong as is the lucrative business of stripping cars for parts.  And a trend that has emerged during COVID is street racing and drifting, requiring small, fast vehicles, often stolen.
