The A1 is a small family car produced by Audi since 2010. Few other superminis can compete with the A1 on style, handling and general oomph; but is it ahead of the competition on insurance costs?

Audi A1 insurance groups

Vehicles in the UK are categorised into insurance groups, ranging from group 1 (the cheapest) to group 50 (the most expensive), which partly determine the cost of your premium.

Audi A1 models range from insurance groups 9 to 38, so the cost of insurance can vary significantly depending on which model you have.

For example, a 30-year-old driver in an average postcode could pay:

  • around £711 for cover on a Audi A1 1.2 TFSI SE 5d
  • or around £868 for a Audi A1 S Line Nav 1.4 TFSI 150PS S Tronic auto 5d

However, the insurance group isn’t the only factor determining the cost of your car insurance. One of the most important other factors is how old you are. The younger you are, the more risk you represent to insurers, and the more you’re likely to pay for insurance. The average 20-year-old driver in London may pay £1,694 for the Audi A1 2.0 TDI Contrast Edition Plus 5d, while the average 40-year-old Londoner will only pay £887.

That’s why, in the table below, we show you the insurance group for each Audi A1 model and also the likely cost at a few different ages.

Audi A1 insurance cost by location

The table above shows the average cost of Audi A1 insurance based on insurance groups and driver age. However, there are a number of other factors that affect the cost of your car insurance premiums, and one of the biggest is where you are in the UK. Where you live helps determine the level of risk that your car may be stolen or that you’ll be involved in an accident, and this affects the cost of insurance.

To show the power of the postcode, here are some average quotes for a 30-year-old living in three different locations. The quotes are for an Audi A1 1.4 TFSI Sport 5d.

  • Cheap: £568 (Galashiels TD1)

What other factors affect my Audi A1 insurance rate?

We’ve covered insurance groups, age and location. Here are some of the other factors that affect your insurance premium costs:

Is the Audi A1 an expensive choice?

Danny Butler

Finder insurance expert Danny Butler answers

In the United Kingdom, the price of a new Audi A1 starts from £16,870: well under the average price for a new car, although the more expensive models can go for almost twice that.

And it’s not just the upfront price of the car that can vary depending on the model you choose. Running and insuring any A1 will generally cost more than another supermini would set you back, and the model and capacity of your vehicle, and therefore the insurance group it falls into, will affect your insurance premiums. An average 30-year-old may pay £800 for the 1.0-litre Audi A1 TFSI SE 5d, but could pay around £830 for the 2.0-litre Audi A1 TDI Black Edition 5d.

The good news is that the Audi A1 range is generally fairly fuel efficient, with low CO2 emissions. Models that use more fuel will cost more to run, and potentially more to tax: the UK standard car tax rate is £150 per year, but you might pay more or less depending on your car’s emissions.

How can I save on my Audi A1 premiums?

When searching for insurance, you’ll want to find the best deal for a price that’s within your budget. We’ve uncovered some tricks you can try to lower the cost of your premium, and we’ve listed them below.

  • Limit your car usage (where possible). Occasionally deciding to walk or get public transport, rather than using your car, can help to save on your premiums.
  • Pay annually rather than monthly. Whilst it might be scary to part with a large sum of money in one go, if you’re able to pay annually you can save an average of £59.52 a year.
  • Install extra safety precautions. The safer your car is, the less of a risk it will be for companies to insure. By adding extra safety measures, you’re quite likely to lower your premium.
  • Don’t just accept your renewal quote. When it’s time for renewal, it’s worth investing a couple of hours to shop around: there may be cheaper options out there.

Bottom line

There’s no getting around it: an Audi A1 is going to cost you more to buy, run and insure than many other cars of a similar size and spec. If that’s the range you have your heart set on, be sure to compare car insurance (and car finance, if applicable) before you buy, so you don’t pay any more than you have to.
