What insurance group does the Citroen Xsara 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. Citroen Xsara models can be found in insurance groups ranging from 11 to 27, 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 £731 for cover on a Citroen Xsara 1.4i L 5d that is in insurance group 11 or around £894 for a Citroen Xsara 2.0i 16V SX 5d Auto that is in insurance group 27. This shows the impact on premium pricing that occurs when one car is in a much higher insurance group.

    • The model and age of your car

    How can I save on my Xsara car insurance?

    Whilst car insurance is a must, it shouldn’t leave you with a hole in your pocket, so we’ve put together a list of tips for you to try that may help you to lower your premiums. Our advice:

    • Pay annually rather than monthly. By paying annually, you could save an average of £65.72 a year.
    • Make yourself a secure investment. The more you appeal to your provider, the more likely it is that you will be rewarded with lower premiums. By keeping a clean history of no claims and a good credit rating, you may find yourself saving some money!
    • Be economical about your car usage. Limiting your car usage will help to keep mileage, and thus your premiums, low.
    • Don’t just accept your renewal quote. Renewal quotes aren’t always the best offers out there, so make sure you shop around to find the price that’s right for you.
    • Install extra safety precautions. Providers don’t like to insure risks, so by investing in some extra safety measures, you may save money on your premiums.
    • Avoid driving convictions. Convictions of any kind will increase your premiums, so do your best to avoid any.

    Facts about the Citroën Xsara

    • Despite being discontinued in Europe in 2004, the Xsara continues to be offered in China.
