The Kia Sportage is a small SUV produced by the South Korean manufacturer Kia since 1993. Considering the style of the vehicle, it’s relatively cheap to run and insure. In this guide, you’ll learn the key facts about insuring a Kia Sportage.

What insurance group does the Kia Sportage fall under?

All vehicles are assigned a specific insurance group that ranges from 1 (cheapest) to 50 (most expensive), which helps to determine the cost of your premium. Kia Sportage models can be found in insurance groups ranging from 2 to 10, meaning costs will typically be a cheap price for car insurance. As an example, a 30-year-old driver in an average postcode could pay around £553 for cover on a Kia Sportage 2 1.4 CRDi 76bhp ISG 5d that is in insurance group 2 or around £640 for a Kia Sportage GT-Line S 1.0 T-GDi 118bhp ISG 5d that is in insurance group 10. This shows the impact on premium pricing that occurs when one car is in a much higher insurance group.

    Which factors affect my Kia Sportage insurance rate?

    There are a number of factors that are likely to influence the price of your insurance premiums. We have listed them below for you:

    • Your age, marital status, job and where you live
    • The model and age of your car
    • Your car’s safety rating, security and any anti-theft precautions
    • Annual mileage
    • Your driving history and activity
    • The size of your car’s engine
    • No claims discount

    How can I save on my Kia Sportage premiums?

    When it comes to insurance and saving money, every little helps. To keep your premiums at a price that’s affordable for you, there are several tricks that you can try that might just save you some money. We have listed the advice below:

    • Pay annually rather than monthly. It may seem daunting to part with a large sum of money in one go, but by doing so, you’ll actually be saving money. By paying annually, rather than monthly, you could save an average of £118.87 a year.
    • Make yourself a secure investment. By keeping a good credit rating and a clean history of no claims, you will appeal more to insurance companies as a secure investment, and they may reward you with lower premiums.
    • Be economical about your car usage. Simple lifestyle choices such as walking to the shops or getting public transport to work can help to lower your premiums.
    • Don’t just accept your renewal quote. Renewal quotes aren’t always that best price out there, and so when it’s time for renewal, make sure you shop around before you commit.
    • Install extra safety precautions. Companies don’t like insuring risks, and so the safer your car is, the more it will appeal to them as a wise investment. By adding extra safety measures, you may just see your premium drop.
    • Avoid driving convictions. This one may seem like an obvious one, but it is important nonetheless. A driving conviction, or any conviction for that matter, is likely to hike up your premium, so should be avoided.
