Why are cars in group 35 more expensive?

Cars in insurance group 35 are usually more expensive to insure for the following reasons.

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

In some cases, the safety features and security features may be lacking on cars in higher insurance groups too.

What other factors affect your car insurance premium?

These three factors will also have a huge impact on the cost of your insurance:

  • Engine type and capacity. The bigger your engine, the more it will cost to repair or replace. This is why more powerful cars cost more to insure. It could also be that these cars are more likely to get into accidents.
  • Driver location. Insurers consider your location when calculating the likelihood of your car being stolen or damaged. If you live in an area where a lot of car insurance claims are made, you’ll be charged a higher premium. As an example, a 30-year-old in central London will pay £1,091 for insurance for a BMW Z4 18i sDrive M Sport (Nav) 2d, while the same 30-year-old in Newcastle may only pay £910.
  • Driver age. Insurers will use previous claims data to calculate the odds of someone your age making a claim and adjust your premium accordingly. The average 20-year-old driver in London could pay £1,898 for the Jaguar E Pace 3d, while the average 40-year-old Londoner will only pay £994.

However, there are a lot of other factors that can also impact the price of your premiums. These include the following:

  • Your marital status
  • Your credit history
  • Your car’s safety rating
  • Your car’s security and anti-theft precautions
  • Where you park your car (street vs driveway or garage)
  • The model and age of your car
  • Your driving history
  • Your no-claims discount

How can I save on my car insurance premiums?

Choosing a car in a lower insurance group is a good way to reduce the price of your premium.

Below, we’ve listed some more ways to lower the cost of your car insurance:

  • Drive safely. If you have to make a claim, your insurer will raise your premium. Having driving convictions on your record will make your premium more expensive too.
  • Don’t use your car all of the time. Motorists with a lower annual mileage tend to be offered lower car insurance premiums because they are perceived as being less of a risk of making a claim.
  • Pay annually. When you pay annually, you often end up with a much cheaper deal as 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. As such, many safety features end up paying for themselves.
  • Shop around. When it’s time for renewal, use price comparison websites to find the best deal. Don’t just blindly accept your current insurer’s renewal quote.
