The other makes and models of motors that were found to have high incidences of being caught speeding, besides the second highest Range Rover Sport’s 20 per cent, included the Ford S-Max Titanium TDCI and BMW 320 DM Sport with identical figures.

The remainder of the list as compiled by the insurance comparison site all had identical rates of 19 per cent.  The list of vehicles ranged across many different types, from cars such as the Mini Cooper TD and Vauxhall Insignia SRI CDTI to the Ford Mondeo Titanium X TDCI and the Mercedes-Benz E320 Avant Garde.
