    How a vehicle from Nissan affects insurance costs

    Insurance companies look at several car-related factors when determining the cost of insurance, including the car’s safety ratings, its likelihood of being stolen, replacement costs and overall damage susceptibility.

    The good safety ratings of Nissans make them affordable to insure. However, some models are a target with criminals, which can push up the cost of car insurance.

    Other factors that affect the cost of insurance include the model, annual mileage and trim package. Personal factors like your driving history and age are also likely be taken into consideration.

    Are there any standout models?

    The Nissan GT-R NISMO is Nissan’s premium sports car. Features include the NISMO-tuned 600-hp, 3.8-litre, high-capacity twin-turbocharged V6 engine; an aerodynamic body design with carbon-fibre front and rear fascias, side sills and rear spoiler; and an all-wheel-drive drivetrain.

    Prices start from around £150,000.

    Pros and cons of insuring a Nissan


    • Great safety ratings
    • Affordable
    • Not expensive to repair or replace partly due to a Nissan manufacturing plant operating in the UK


    • Some models are targeted by thieves

    Nissan car facts

    • Nissan sells cars along a spectrum of price points. You’ll find budget models like the Nissan Micra, the Leaf, an electric car, as well as high-priced options like the Nissan GT-R ‘Z’.
    • The Nissan Leaf, Navara and the Qashqai have been targeted with car thieves, in part, because of their keyless entry systems.
    • Nissans typically score good safety ratings across the board from the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP), getting the maximum 5-star rating for different models, including the Nissan Leaf, Pulsar, Qashqai and Juke. This helps to lower insurance costs.
    • Nissan’s spacious seven-seater X-Trail was the world’s fourth most popular car sold in 2017. More than 390,000 vehicles have been sold worldwide.
    • You may want more than just third party cover for your Nissan, especially if it’s more more at risk with criminals. Expanding your protection to third party fire and theft or comprehensive cover might be a better fit for your needs.

    What is NissanConnect?

    Nissan’s infotainment system, NissanConnect, brings together navigation, security and connectivity. Control your Nissan by voice or touch. Start your car with a command to an Alexa-enabled device, or unlock your doors from your smartphone.

    Once inside your Nissan, you can stream music and get navigation assistance from your vehicle’s display screen. Or send a hands-free text by voice command.

    New Nissan models all feature a two-year free subscription of the NissanConnect Services. You can then decide whether to extend your subscription or not after that period.

    Bottom line

    You’re likely to find affordable car insurance for your Nissan, barring any personal hiccups like a poor driving record. But be sure to shop around to find the best car insurance for you.
