These are the most hijacked cars in SA

South African Police Service (SAPS) recently released a list highlighting the most frequently hijacked vehicles in South Africa. Crime data from mid-August revealed a 13.2% increase in carjacking from April 2021 to 30 June 2021, comparable to the same period during 2019.

The lockdown in 2020 resulted in lower-than-normal criminal activity, so when we compare this year’s activity to last year’s activity, there’s a massive 92.2% increase.


Specific vehicles at high risk of theft

Security company Fidelity ADT says that incidents involving remote-jamming devices have become an everyday occurrence in South Africa and that residents need to be especially mindful of ensuring their vehicles are locked before leaving them unattended. 

Car jamming occurs when a criminal uses signal-blocking technology to prevent a vehicle from locking properly.

Protect yourself financially with comprehensive insurance

Being hijacked could result in physical and emotional trauma. Even having your car stolen could result in emotional stress. The experience affects your emotions and thoughts and shatters basic assumptions of safety, predictability and controllability. It’s important to seek out professional help after incidents that may cause emotional stress.

Having adequate car insurance could help you avoid the administrative and financial stress involved in carjacking and car theft. Comprehensive Car Insurance covers you from hijacking, theft, natural disasters and fire. It is usually the most expensive car insurance option, as it covers all bases and protects the beneficiary against all unforeseen events.
