Ford Puma insurance group
Compare car insurance costs for your Ford Puma based on your age and location.
The Ford Puma is a new crossover, released in 2019. It’s a smaller crossover, based on the popular Ford Fiesta and it performs just as well. You can expect impressive acceleration, fuel economy and plenty of space for passengers and luggage, compared to its nearest rivals. In this guide, you’ll find out how much it costs to insure based on the age and location of the driver.
What insurance group does the Ford Puma 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. Ford Puma models can be found in insurance groups ranging from 19 to 27, meaning costs will typically be just below or just above the average price for car insurance. As an example, a 30-year-old driver in an average postcode could pay around £812 for cover on a Ford Puma Active 1.4i 16V 3d that is in insurance group 19 or around £894 for a Ford Puma 1.7 Millenium 3d 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.

Which factors affect my Ford Puma insurance rate?
Along with insurance group, here are some key factors that have a huge impact on your insurance premium costs:
- Engine type and capacity. In general, the larger the engine, the more you’ll pay for your car insurance. For example, it may cost £971 for insurance for a Ford Puma 1.4i 16V 3d, while you may pay £1,022 for a Ford Puma 1.7 Millenium 3d. In this case, that’s a £51 difference per year based solely on engine size.
- Driver location. Insurers use your home address to determine the level of risk that your car may be stolen or involved in an accident, and this affects the cost of insurance. For example, a 30-year-old in central London may pay £997 for insurance for a Ford Puma 1.7i 16V Thunder 3d, while the same 30-year-old in Newcastle may only pay £868. So, in this scenario, the Londoner will pay £129 more per year to insure this vehicle.
- Driver age. The youngest drivers will pay the most for car insurance because they are the most likely to make a claim. As an example, the average 20-year-old driver in London may pay £1,778 for the Ford Puma 1.7 Black 3d, while the average 40-year-old Londoner will only pay £932. So, in this case, the younger driver will pay almost double to insure this vehicle.
Other factors that influence the cost of your insurance include:
- Your marital status
- Your credit history
- Your job title
- Your vehicle’s anti-theft precautions
- Your annual mileage
- Your driving history and activity, including no-claim discount
- The model and age of your car
- Your car’s safety rating and security features
How can I save on my Ford Puma premium?
Car insurance can be costly, but there’s no need to let it break the bank. It can take some time to find the best deal for a price within your budget. Here are some ideas to lower the cost of your premium.
- Limit your annual mileage (where possible). Occasionally walking or taking public transport, rather than using your car, can cut your annual mileage and help you to save on your premium.
- Pay annually rather than monthly. You may pay interest on monthly payments. By paying annually, you eliminate the possibility of being charged interest.
- Install extra safety precautions. By adding extra safety measures, your car becomes less of a risk to insure, and that’s why many insurers are happy to cut your premium when you do so.
- Shop around for the best deal each year. Don’t just settle for the renewal price offered to you. There will usually be better deals on offer from a competitor, so shop around using price comparison websites.
