This vehicle falls within car insurance groups 10-37, so you can expect to pay below average to insure this vehicle compared to others on the road.

DS 3 insurance cost by location

Your location is another powerful factor when it comes to determing the cost of insuring your vehicle. To show the power of the postcode, here are some average quotes for a 30-year-old living in three UK locations. The quotes are for a DS 3 1.2 PureTech Chic 3d.

  • Expensive: £968 (London SE1)
  • Average: £807 (Newcastle NE1)
  • Cheap: £597 (Galashiels TD1)

Which factors affect my DS 3 insurance rate?

Here are some more examples of key factors that have the biggest impact on your insurance premium costs:

  • Engine type and capacity. As a general rule of thumb, your car insurance will increase if your vehicle has a large and powerful engine. The DS 3’s engines range from 1.0-litres up to 1.6-litres, so the premium can change. For example, you would pay around £865 for insurance on a DS 3 1.2 PureTech DStyle 3d, while you could pay up to £978 for a DS 3 1.6 BlueHDi Prestige 3d. In this specific example, the DS 3 1.6 DDiS SZ-T 5d that is 0.6 litres bigger in engine size, costs an extra £113 in premium.
  • Driver location. Where you live helps determine the level of risk that your car may be stolen or you’ll be involved in an accident, and this affects the cost of insurance. For example, a 30-year-old in central London may pay £972 for insurance for a DS 3 1.2 PureTech Prestige 3d EAT6, while the same 30-year-old in Newcastle may only pay £816. That’s a £139 difference based just on where you live.
  • Driver age. The youngest drivers are likely to pay a lot more for insurance, because they are statistically a lot more likely to make a claim. As an example, the average 20-year-old driver in London may pay £1,984 for the DS 3 1.6 THP 210bhp Performance BRM Chrono 3d, while the average 40-year-old Londoner will only pay £1,039. That’s almost double what a 20-year-old driver would have to pay compared to a 40-year-old and this tends to be the case regardless of what car they are driving.

Other factors that influence the cost of your insurance include:

  • Your marital status;
  • Your car’s safety rating score and security features;
  • The model and age of your car;
  • Your annual miles driven;
  • Your driving history and activity, including your no-claims discount;
  • Your credit history and job.

How can I save on my DS 3 premiums?

Whilst car insurance is a necessary legal requirement, you don’t want it clearing out your bank account. Here are some ideas to help you lower the cost of your premium, and we’ve listed them below.

  • Limit your car usage (where possible). By occasionally deciding to walk or take public transport, rather than using your car, you help to save on your premiums.
  • Pay annually, rather than monthly. Whilst it might be scary to part with a large sum of money in one go, by paying annually you won’t be subject to interest on monthly payments.
  • Install extra safety precautions. The more safety features added, the safer your car is deemed to be, and the less you’ll have to pay to insure it.
  • Shop around for the best deal. When it’s time to renew your deal, shop around and find the cheapest deal. In most cases, you’ll find a better deal by switching insurance companies.
