The BMW 5 series is a highly-popular award-winning luxury saloon. It’s a larger and more comfortable vehicle than the extremely popular BMW 3 Series, yet it only costs a little more. In this guide, you’ll learn everything you need to know about insuring the BMW 5 series.

What insurance group does the BMW 5 Series fall under?

All cars are assigned a specific insurance group ranging from 1 (cheapest to insure) to 50 (most expensive). These are used by insurers to help determine a suitable premium to offer motorists. BMW 5 Series models range from insurance group 30 to 46, so these vehicles will typically be more expensive than the average car to insure.

The costs will vary depending on your chosen model of BMW 5 Series vehicle and the different factors related to it. As an example, a 30-year-old driver in an average postcode could pay around £906 for cover on a BMW 5 Series 518d SE 4d that is in insurance group 30 or around £1,096 for a BMW 5 Series 550i SE 4d Step Auto that is in insurance group 44. From this comparison, we can see the impact of premium pricing when one car is in a much higher insurance group.

    BMW 5 Series insurance cost by location

    The table above shows the average cost of BMW 5 Series insurance based on insurance groups and driver age. However, there are a number of other factors that affect the cost of your car insurance premium, one of the biggest being your location.

    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 a BMW 5 Series 528i SE 4d.

    • Expensive: £1,168 (London SE1)
    • Average: £967 (Newcastle NE1)
    • Cheap: £730 (Galashiels TD1)

    Which factors affect my BMW 5 Series insurance rate?

    Along with the car’s insurance group, there are a few other factors that have a big impact on your insurance premium costs:

    • Engine type and capacity. In general, the bigger the engine, the higher the cost of your insurance. For example, it may cost £1,046 for insurance for a BMW 5 Series 518d SE 4d, while you may pay £1,168 for the bigger engined BMW 5 Series 528i SE 4d.
    • Driver location. 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. For example, a 30-year-old in central London may pay £1,114 for insurance for a BMW 5 Series 520i SE 07/13- 4d, while the same 30-year-old in Newcastle may only pay £924.
    • 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 £2,032 for the BMW 5 Series 528i SE Business Media 4d Step Auto, while the average 40-year-old Londoner will only pay £1,064.

    Other factors that influence the cost of your insurance include:

    • Your car’s safety rating and security features
    • The model and age of your car
    • Your car’s anti-theft precautions
    • Your annual mileage
    • Your driving history and activity
    • No claim discount
    • Your marital status
    • Your credit history and job

    How can I save on my BMW 5 Series premium?

    You have to buy car insurance if you want to drive your car or leave it on the road, but it doesn’t have to break the bank. Here are some tricks you can try in order to lower the cost of your premium.

    • 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 premium.
    • Pay annually rather than monthly. It’s not always possible to part with a large sum of money in one go, but paying annually can save you money because you’ll avoid paying interest on monthly payments.
    • Install extra safety precautions. The safer your car is, the less of a risk it will be for companies to insure. As such, you’re quite likely to lower your premium by adding extra safety features.
    • Don’t just accept your renewal quote. When it’s time to renew your car insurance policy, make sure you shop around and don’t just settle for the renewal price given to you.

    Bottom line

    This is a saloon that oozes class, but it’ll cost a lot of buy and you’ll pay a lot to insure it too. You’ll always pay well above the average rate this car, but the tips in this guide will help you reduce your premiums somewhat.
