Cars in insurance group 2 are often the cheapest to insure. With group 2 being one of the lowest insurance groups, the cars that fit into this category usually score well in factors used to determine the group ratings such as having good car safety features, being inexpensive to repair and possessing less powerful engines.

Car insurance groups explained

When it comes to insurance, all vehicles are assigned an insurance group from 1 (cheapest) to 50 (most expensive), and this helps determine the cost of your premiums. The group a particular car model fits into is usually determined by its performance, safety and security features and its value.

There are also a number of different factors that insurers take into account such as your age, driving history and location, so it’s always important to compare policies and providers to look through your options.

Why are cars in group 2 some of the cheapest to insure?

Cars in insurance group 2 are usually the cheapest cars to insure, because they score well in a number of factors that determine which group the car will fall into. These factors include:

  • Good security and safety features
  • Inexpensive to source parts and make repairs
  • Low market value
  • Smaller engine size
  • Low repair times
  • Easy to source parts for replacement

Which 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. 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 when calculating your insurance, and your location has a big impact on this. As an example, a 30-year-old in central London will pay £678 for insurance for a Volkswagen Up 1.0 Up White 3d, while the same 30-year-old in Newcastle may only pay £582.
  • 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 £1,178 for the Toyota Yaris Icon Tech 1.0 VVT-i (05/18-) 5d, while the average 40-year-old Londoner will only pay £617.

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

  • 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 insurance group 2 is a good way to keep the cost of your car insurance down. Thankfully, there are a few other things you can do to reduce your car insurance premium, and we’ve listed them below:

  • Avoid any driving convictions. It may sound obvious, but having convictions on your record will make your premium more expensive.
  • Be economical about your car usage. You could save money on your insurance by being more sparing with your car usage. Opting for public transport or walking when you can will help keep your mileage, and premium, lower.
  • Pay annually rather than monthly. By paying annually, you often end up with a much cheaper deal as you won’t have interest to pay on your monthly instalments.
  • Install extra safety precautions. The safer you make your car, the better your premium will be. By investing in extra safety features, your vehicle will be more secure and less of a risk to insure.
  • Don’t just accept your renewal quote. When it’s time for renewal, make sure you compare your options – you’ll be surprised at how much you could save by assessing your options.
