Why are cars in group 36 more expensive to insure?

Cars in insurance group 36 are usually:

  • Expensive to buy
  • Expensive to repair, with long repair times
  • Powered by large engines

In some cases, they may also be lacking when it comes to safety features, although this is less likely with more expensive models.

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 it will cost to replace or repair. That’s one reason why more powerful cars cost more to insure.
  • Driver location. If a lot of car insurance claims are made in your home town, insurers will raise your premium to compensate for that extra risk. A 30-year-old in central London will pay £1,114 for insurance for a BMW 1 Series M135i (Nav) 5d, while the same 30-year-old in Newcastle may only pay £924.
  • Driver age. The youngest drivers are likely to pay more, because they are statistically most likely to make a claim. However, your premium will drop as you get older, especially if you begin to build a lengthy no-claim bonus. The average 20-year-old driver in London could pay £1,938 for the Ford Focus ST 2.0T ST-3 Estate 5d, while the average 40-year-old Londoner will only pay £1,015.

However, there are a lot of other factors that can also impact the price of your premium. 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 history

How can I save on my car insurance premium?

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

Below are some more ideas for reducing the cost of your car insurance.

  • Drive safely. Making a claim or having driving convictions on your record will make your premium more expensive.
  • Don’t use your car all of the time. If you reduce your annual mileage, you can often reduce your premium.
  • Pay annually. By paying annually, you’ll avoid paying interest on monthly instalments.
  • Install extra safety precautions. The safer you make your car, the cheaper your premium will be.
  • Shop around. When it’s time for renewal, make sure you compare your options. Often, you’ll find a better deal from a competitor, as opposed to accepting your renewal quote.
