Why are cars in group 34 more expensive?

Cars in insurance group 34 usually cost more to insure for the following reasons.

  • Expensive to source parts and make repairs
  • Market value is on the higher side
  • Larger engine size
  • Longer repair times

In some cases, they may be found to be lacking when it comes to safety and security features.

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 bigger your engine, the more you’re likely to pay for insurance. This is because larger engines cost more to replace or repair. On top of that, cars with more powerful engines may be seen as more likely to get involved in accidents.
  • Driver location. Your location is considered when insurers calculate your likelihood of making a claim. If you live in an area where a lot of claims are made, your premium will rise. As an example, a 30-year-old in central London will pay £1,074 for insurance for a BMW 4 Series 428i Modern 5d, while the same 30-year-old in Newcastle may only pay £902.
  • Driver age. Your age plays a huge role in determining the cost of your insurance premium. Insurers will factor in the likelihood of someone your age making a claim, based on previous claims data. This is why younger drivers tend to face high premiums. The average 20-year-old driver in London could pay £1,867 for the Ford Edge Vignale 2.0 TDCi 210PS AWD PowerShift auto 5d, while the average 40-year-old Londoner will only pay £978.

Here are some more factors that can also impact the price of your premiums.

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

How can I save on my car insurance premiums?

Choosing a car in a lower insurance group is an intelligent way to reduce the price of your premium, but that’s not always a practical solution.

Thankfully, there are more things you can do to lower the cost of your car insurance:

  • Drive safely. It may sound obvious but having convictions on your record will make your premium more expensive.
  • Use telematics. A telematics box will track your driving activity and give the insurer proof that you are a safe driver.
  • Use your car less. Your premium could drop if your annual mileage drops. That’s because those who use their car less are seen as less of a risk of getting into an accident.
  • Pay annually. When you pay annually, you won’t have to pay interest on monthly instalments.
  • Install extra safety precautions. The safer you make your car, the cheaper your premium will be.
  • Shop around. Don’t blindly accept your insurer’s renewal quote. Instead, use price comparison websites to search for the cheapest deal. You’ll be surprised at how much you could save by switching insurers each year.
