Jeep Renegade insurance group
Compare car insurance costs for a Jeep Renegade based on the specific model version, the driver's age and their location.
There are plenty of hardcore Jeep fans in the UK. The Renegade allows them to enjoy this brand without paying through the nose to own one of the larger models. This guide will teach you everything you need to know about insuring a Jeep Renegade.
What insurance group does the Jeep Renegade fall under?
When it comes to car insurance, all vehicles are given a specific insurance group that ranges from 1 (cheapest) to 50 (most expensive), which helps determine the cost of your premium. You’ll find Jeep Renegade models in insurance groups ranging from 8 to 25, meaning it will cost less than the average car to insure.
The cost will vary depending on your choice of Jeep Renegade. As an example, a 30-year-old driver in an average postcode could pay around £700 for cover on a Jeep Renegade 1.6 E-torQ Sport 5d that is in insurance group 8 or around £830 for a Jeep Renegade 1.3 Turbo 4xe PHEV 190 Limited Auto 5d that is in insurance group 22. This is a clear example of how vehicles in higher insurance groups will cost more to insure.
You can find the insurance group, and likely premium cost, of your Jeep renegade model in the table below.

Which factors affect my Jeep renegade insurance rate?
Along with insurance group, there are other key factors that have the biggest impact on your insurance premium costs. Here are some important factors to be aware of.
- Engine type and capacity. Jeeps with larger engines will typically cost more to insure. For example, it may cost £711 to insure a Jeep Renegade Sport 1.0 120hp 4×2 5d, while insurance on the bigger engined Jeep Renegade 1.3 Turbo 4xe PHEV 190 Limited Auto 5d may cost £830.
- Driver location. Insurers will calculate the likelihood of your car being stolen or involved in an accident based on data from your location, and this affects the cost of insurance. For example, a 30-year-old in central London may pay £974 for insurance for a Jeep Renegade 1.3 Turbo 4xe PHEV 190 Limited Auto 5d, while the same 30-year-old in Newcastle may only pay £830. That’s a £144 difference between Newcastle and London, because motorists in the capital are more likely to make a claim.
- Driver age. The youngest motorists are the most likely to make a claim and are therefore more likely to pay for insurance. Here’s an example. The average 20-year-old driver in London may pay £1,487 for the Jeep Renegade 1.4 Multiair Longitude 5d, while the average 40-year-old Londoner will only pay £779. As you can see, you can expect a significant discount on your car insurance when you get older.
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 features
- Your car’s anti-theft precautions
- Your annual mileage
- Your car usage
- Your no-claim discount
How can I save on my Jeep Renegade premium?
Car insurance is a necessary legal requirement, but it doesn’t have to clear your bank account. When searching for insurance, it’s important to find the best deal for a price that’s within your budget. There are some tricks you can try to lower the cost of your premium, and we’ve listed them below.
- Limit your car usage (where possible). If you’re able to walk or get public transport instead of driving occasionally, it can help to save on your premium.
- Pay annually rather than monthly. It might be difficult to part with a large sum of money in one go. However, by paying annually you will not have to pay interest on your monthly instalments.
- Install extra safety precautions. The safer your car is, the less of a risk it will be for insurers. By adding extra safety measures, you’re therefore likely to lower your premium.
- Don’t just accept your renewal quote. Although it might be time consuming, it’s worth the money to shop around for the best deal every year. There are likely to be cheaper options than your insurer’s renewal quote.
