Do you feel that the Audi Q5 just isn’t exciting enough for you? Have you been looking for something a little sportier, and more streamlined? If so, the Audi SQ5 is the car for you. Audi’s sports variant of the traditional Q5 was released on the roads in September 2012, and it’s been a popular sell ever since.

In Audi’s own words, the SQ5 is the company’s traditional SUV model, but ‘turned up to eleven’. Read on to see how this model can be insured, and how you can save!

Audi SQ5 insurance groups and cost by driver’s age

When it comes to car insurance, all vehicles are given a specific insurance group that ranges from group 1 (cheapest) to group 50 (most expensive) which helps determine the cost of your premium. Audi SQ5 models range from insurance groups 41 to 44, so the cost of insurance can vary significantly. As an example, a 30-year-old driver in an average postcode could pay around £1,041 for cover on a Audi SQ5 SQ5 3.0 TDi Quattro 5d Tip Auto, or around £1,096 for a Audi SQ5 SQ5 Plus Quattro 5d Tip Auto.

Which factors affect my Audi SQ5 insurance rate?

Along with insurance group, there are a number of key factors that have the biggest impact on your insurance premium costs:

  • Engine type and capacity. In general, the bigger the engine, the higher the cost of your insurance. An average 30-year-old may pay £1,041 for the Audi SQ5 SQ5 3.0 TDi Quattro 5d Tip Auto, but could pay around £1,096 for the 2.0-litre Audi SQ5 SQ5 Plus Quattro 5d Tip Auto.
  • Driver location. Where you live helps determine the level of risk that your car may be stolen or you’ll be involved in an accident, and this affects the cost of insurance. For example, a 30-year-old in central London may pay £1,258 for insurance for a Audi SQ5 SQ5 Plus Quattro 5d Tip Auto, while the same 30-year-old in Newcastle may only pay £1,096.
  • Driver age. 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 £2,143 for the Audi SQ5 SQ5 3.0 TDi Quattro 5d Tip Auto, while the average 40-year-old Londoner will only pay £1,122.

How can I save on my Audi SQ5 premiums?

Whilst car insurance is a necessary legal requirement, you don’t want it leaving you with an empty bank account. When searching for insurance, you’ll want to find the best deal for a price that’s within your budget. There are some tricks you can try in order 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, by paying 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. Although it might be time consuming, when it’s time for renewal make sure you shop around and don’t just settle for the renewal price given to you – there may be cheaper options out there!
