Why do cars in group 26 cost more to insure?

Cars in insurance group 26 cost slightly above average because they rank as slightly above average for the following features:

  • Security features
  • Cost of parts
  • Cost of repairs
  • Repair time
  • Market value
  • Engine size

What other factors affect your car insurance premium?

Along with your car’s insurance group, these three factors have the biggest impact on the cost of your insurance:

  • Engine type and capacity. The larger your engine, the more you’re likely to pay for insurance. With a smaller engine, you’re likely to be seen as less risk to an insurer and this is usually reflected with a lower premium.
  • Driver location. Insurers factor in the likelihood that your car will be stolen or involved in an accident based on your location and will adjust your premium accordingly. As an example, a 30-year-old in central London will pay £1,010 for insurance for a Abarth 500 1.4 16V T-Jet (09) 3d, while the same 30-year-old in Newcastle may only pay £882.
  • Driver age. Like location, the age of the driver plays a huge role in determining the cost of your insurance premium. The average 20-year-old driver in London could pay £1,757 for the DS 3 1.6 THP DStyle 3d, while the average 40-year-old Londoner will only pay £920.

There are a handful of other factors that can also impact the price of your premiums.

These include the following:

  • Your marital status
  • Your credit history and job
  • Your car’s safety rating, security and anti-theft precautions
  • The model and age of your car
  • Your driving activity
  • Your driving history
  • Your no-claims discount

How can I save on my car insurance premiums?

As well as choosing a car in a lower insurance group, there are a few other things you can do to lower the cost of your car insurance.

We’ve listed them below:

  • Drive safely. Having convictions on your record will make your premium more expensive.
  • Don’t use your car all of the time. A lower annual mileage can convince insurers to lower your premium.
  • Pay annually. When you pay annually, you won’t be charged interest on your monthly instalments.
  • Install extra safety precautions. The safer you make your car, the less of a risk you are to insure, the lower your premium will be.
  • Shop around. Your renewal offer is rarely the best deal you can snap up. You’ll be surprised at how much you could save by shopping around and assessing your options.
