Which factors affect my Audi RS3 insurance rate?
Along with insurance group, here are some of the other key factors that impact your insurance premium costs:
- Engine type and capacity. In general, the bigger the engine, the higher the cost of your insurance. However, as all Audi RS3 models come with a 2.5-litre engine, this won’t be a factor to compare with this vehicle.
- Driver location. Insurers use your home address to determine the level of risk that your car may be stolen or you’ll be involved in an accident. If you live in an area where motorists are historically more likely to make a claim, this will increase the cost of insurance. For example, a 30-year-old in central London may pay £1,216 for insurance for a Audi RS3 2.5 TFSI RS 3 Quattro 5d S Tronic, while the same 30-year-old in Newcastle may only pay £1,018.
- Driver age. The youngest drivers are the most likely to claim on their car insurance. For this reason, they have to pay significantly more to cover themselves. As an example, the average 20-year-old driver in London may pay £2,115 for the Audi RS3 2.5 TFSI RS 3 Quattro Nav 5d S Tronic, while the average 40-year-old Londoner will only pay £1,108. In this example, the 20-year-old would have to pay almost double to insure an Audi RS3.
Other factors that influence the cost of your insurance include:
- Your annual mileage
- Your marital status
- Your car’s safety rating score
- The model of your car
- The age of your car
- Your car’s security features
- Your car’s anti-theft precautions
- Your driving history and activity
- No claims discount
- Your occupation
- Your credit history

- 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.
