Honda CR-V insurance group and cost
Compare car insurance costs for your Honda CR-V based on your age and location.
The Honda CR-V is a large SUV produced by the Japanese manufacturer since 1995. It’s not as powerful or popular as other Honda SUVs, although one advantage is that it is relatively affordable to insure. In this guide, you’ll discover the key facts about insuring a Honda CR-V.
Honda CR-V insurance groups and cost by driver’s age
When it comes to calculating car insurance, all vehicles are given a specific insurance group that ranges from 1 (cheapest) to 50 (most expensive) which helps work out the cost of your premium. Honda CR-V models range from insurance group 22 to insurance group 25, so you can expect the price of your insurance to be mid-range.
However, the the cost of insurance can vary between insurance groups based on a number of different factors including your car’s performance, safety features and cost of repair. For example, a 30-year-old driver in an average postcode could pay around £830 for cover on a Honda CR-V SE i-MMD Hybrid AWD eCVT auto 5d, or around £868 for a Honda CR-V EX 1.5 VTEC Turbo AWD 5d which falls in insurance group 25.
You can find the insurance group and likely premium cost of your Honda CR-V model in the table below.

Which factors affect my Honda CR-V insurance rate?
Along with the insurance group, there are other key factors that impact your insurance premium costs:
- Engine type and capacity. In general, the bigger the engine, the higher the cost of your insurance. An average 30-year-old may pay £841 for the Honda CR-V SE i-MMD Hybrid 2WD eCVT auto 5d, but could pay around £868 for the Honda CR-V EX 1.5 VTEC Turbo AWD 5d.
- 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 £986 for insurance for a Honda CR-V S 1.5 VTEC Turbo 2WD 5d, while the same 30-year-old in Newcastle may only pay £854.
- Driver age. The younger you are, the more risk you represent to insurers, and the more you’re likely to pay for insurance. The average 20-year-old driver in London may pay £1,716 for the Honda CR-V Evolve 4d, while the average 40-year-old Londoner will only pay £899.
Other factors that influence the cost of your insurance include:
- Your marital status
- Your credit history and job
- Your car’s safety rating score
- The model of your car
- The age of your car
- Your car’s security and any extra anti-theft precautions
- Annual miles driven
- Your driving history and activity
- No claim discount
How can I save on my Honda CR-V car insurance?
Car insurance can be expensive, but it doesn’t always have to be. When searching for car insurance, you’ll want to find a good level of cover at an affordable price. There are a few tricks you can try in order to save on your car insurance premiums, and we’ve listed them below.
- Cut down your mileage and change your class of use. Occasionally deciding to walk or get public transport, rather than using your car, helps to save on your premiums. You could also change your class of use to remove “commuting” from the policy which will give you less exposure to rush hour traffic, and therefore be seen as less risk to an insurer.
- Pay annually always. Whilst it might be a lot of money to part with in a lump sum, by paying annually you won’t incur interest on any monthly instalments.
- Install extra safety precautions. The safer your car is, the less of a risk it will be for companies to insure. By adding extra safety measures, you’re quite likely to lower your premium.
- Don’t just accept your renewal quote. Although it can be time consuming, when it’s time for renewal make sure you shop around and don’t just settle for the renewal price given to you – there may be cheaper options out there!
