Car insurance offers financial cover for you if your car gets stolen, vandalised or is involved in a road accident, and also applies to the other people and vehicles involved if an accident is your fault.

What are car insurance groups for?

Insurance companies calculate your monthly premium based on a number of factors, including your age, previous claim history, the value of the vehicle, your occupation, how many miles you drive and where you park it at night.

If you’re in the market for a car, one other factor to consider is its insurance group rating, as this can make a big difference when it comes to your premiums.

How many cur insurance groups are there?

Prior to 2010, insurance groups ranged between 1-20, with the lowest being the cheapest to repair and insure. These were ditched and replaced with a wider 1-50 rating system to represent a more accurate reflection of the increased range of cars available on the market.

What can affect a car's insurance group rating?

If you pick a car with a smaller engine size in the range, this will command a lower insurance group rating than one with a larger, more powerful one. This is because higher-performance cars are deemed to be at higher risk of an accident. Vehicles with added safety and security equipment can lower the insurance group, while limited-run cars with hard-to-source parts and potentially longer repair times can raise the insurance group.
