Official Department for Transport data has this month revealed which cars are awarded a pass certificate most often.
The Honda Jazz tops the table of cars most likely to pass with a 96.32 per cent pass rate, followed by Porsche 911 at 95.93 per cent and Toyota iQ at 94.49 per cent.
The Mazda MX-5 and Porsche Boxster also make the top five.
Least likely to pass is the Vauxhall Combo van with a pass rate of 74.15 per cent, followed by the Renault Mégane at 77.47 per cent – making it the only car to feature in the bottom five.
The data covers MOT pass rates in 2017 and was analysed by pay-per-mile insurance company, By Miles.
Researchers excluded models if fewer than 3,000 examples were submitted for testing and only cars and vans between three and five years old were included.
