Mazda RX-8 insurance groups and cost by driver’s age

When it comes to car insurance, all vehicles are given an insurance group number that ranges from 1 (cheapest) to 50 (most expensive) that helps determine the cost of your premium. Mazda RX-8 models range from insurance groups 27 to 34, so you can generally expect the cost of your insurance to be somewhere in the middle.

It’s important to note that 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 £894 for cover on a Mazda RX-8 (192ps) 4d (insurance group 27) or around £902 for a Mazda RX-8 PZ 4d, which falls in insurance group 34. In this example, the cost of car insurance for the Mazda RX-8 PZ 4d is an extra £8 due to its higher insurance group.

Which factors affect my insurance costs?

Along with the insurance group, there are other key factors that impact your insurance premium costs:

  • Engine type and capacity. The size and power of your engine plays a big role in determining the cost of your car insurance. In general, the bigger the engine, the higher the cost of your premium. An average 30-year-old may pay £894 for the Mazda RX-8 Nemesis 4d, but could pay around £903 for the Mazda RX-8 R3 (231ps) 4d.
  • 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 £1,046 for insurance for a Mazda RX-8 Kuro 4d, while the same 30-year-old in Newcastle may only pay £906.
  • Driver age. Younger drivers are statistically more likely to be involved in car accidents and, as a result, pose a greater risk to insurance providers. The average 20-year-old driver in London may pay £1,819 for the Mazda RX-8 Evolve 4d, while the average 40-year-old Londoner will only pay £953. In this example, due to the increased risk involved for the younger driver, their premium is an extra £866 per year.

The following are other factors that can influence the cost of your insurance:

  • Your marital status
  • Your credit rating
  • Your job title
  • 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 claims discount
