Analysts from AlfaStrakhovanie, having studied the statistics of their clients’ hull insurance claims, reported that Korean Hyundai Santa Fe crossovers and Hyundai Sonata sedans were in the greatest demand among Moscow car thieves in the first half of 2022.
Also, Hyundai Creta, Hyundai Palisade, Hyundai Solaris and Hyundai Tucson were among the leaders in thefts in Moscow. These models accounted for approximately 7% of registered thefts in the first half of the year. The BMW X7, Kia Sportage and Kia Sorento, Land Rover and Lexus LX were hijacked with approximately the same frequency, and the Japanese business sedan Toyota Camry closes the rating.
Korean cars of the middle price segment are gaining popularity among Russian car owners, and with it, among car thieves, especially when it comes to SUVs. Most of the top stolen cars are the widely used makes and models that you see on the road every day.
