Car thefts have dropped an average 13 percent each year since 2006 according to the latest data from the government safety regulators.

With that in mind, this is the list of the 10 car least likely to disappear from the driveway while you’re busy playing Rip Van Winkle.

Kicking off the list is the Lexus CT, an entry-level hybrid that began sales in the U.S. in March 2011. The CT 200h is powered by a 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine with 98 hp and 105 lb-ft of torque paired with an electric motor for a combined system output of 134 hp and 153 lb-ft of torque. NHTSA reports 0.2 thefts in 2011 per 1,000 vehicles produced.

    Fascinating. Another reason to get a Miata!

    In Europe, X5 is on the top list of the stolen cars :p

    Not sure what they use as the criteria here, maybe total number of cars sold matters, but…The “least stolen” should be one of the electric cars with the lowest range. Perhaps thieves have even more of the “range anxiety” than you regular Joe, wouldn’t you think?

  • Raj R

    now you know we have a whole generation gap between us and you.

  • Me

    you mean that there is a reason to want a Miata ?

  • Dbuchter

    Why??

  • MistyGreen

    Yes, there are plenty, in case you’ve missed out on the past 25 years of automotive history.

    I didn’t you could give an X5 away horrible design poor poor use of space rear sseats an after thought. To say nothing about lousy fuel economy and atrocious build quality buy BMW STANDARDS
    Never stood a chance against European designs

    Keep in mind some are only into riding in a car, not actually driving it, even if they are behind the wheel. ;)

    Jaguar has produced an inferior product for, the joke was have 2. One to drive and one to have at the dealership getting repaired. Their looks far exceeded their reliability. Maybe this will be different, the lady’s always like them. Their dealer network is horrible both with price and availability. I am ordering a 2014 CORVETTE convertible, I just have to wait a year. My 2011 is flawless and the Z51 obtion does 0 to 60 in 3.8 without spinning a tire with the AUTOMATIC [try selling a manual] no one want to shift gears in a luxury sports car!

    Miata,,,,, The dumbing down of America continues.

    it’s based on “how many per thousand” so it’s a percentage of total vehicles…. and I think this is just from the US.

    Looks like thieves have good taste after all!
