Mitsubishi ASX insurance group
Compare car insurance costs for your Mitsubishi ASX based on your age and location.
The Mitsubishi ASX is a crossover that has been available since 2010. Although Mitsubishi is known as a specialist in crossover vehicles, the ASX doesn’t have the best range of engines, and there are more exciting vehicles out there. With that said, it provides a decent enough drive when you consider the cost. 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 Mitsubishi ASX fall under?
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. Mitsubishi ASX models range from insurance group 13 to insurance group 25, meaning you’ll typically pay less to insure this vehicle compared to other vehicles. As an example, a 30-year-old driver in an average postcode could pay around £756 for cover on a Mitsubishi ASX 1.6 2 ClearTec 5d that is in insurance group 13 or around £868 for a Mitsubishi ASX Exceed 2WD 5d that is in insurance group 25. This shows the impact on premium pricing when one car is in a much higher insurance group.

Which factors affect my Mitsubishi ASX insurance rate?
Along with insurance group, there are a number of key factors that have the biggest 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 £895 for insurance for a Mitsubishi ASX 1.6 2 ClearTec 5d, while you may pay £972 for a Mitsubishi ASX 2.2 3 4WD 5d Auto. That’s an extra £77 per year to insure this vehicle for an engine that’s 0.6 of a litre bigger.
- 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 £972 for insurance for a Mitsubishi ASX 5 1.6 DI-D 4WD 5d, while the same 30-year-old in Newcastle may only pay £816. That’s an extra £156 per year to pay to insure this vehicle if you move from Newcastle to London.
- 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 £1,691 for the Mitsubishi ASX 2.2 4 4WD 5d Auto, while the average 40-year-old Londoner will only pay £886. So, in this example, the younger driver would pay almost double to insure this vehicle.
Other factors that influence the cost of your insurance include:
- Your driving history and activity, including no-claim discount
- The model of your car
- The age of your car
- Your car’s safety rating score
- Your car’s security features
- Your car’s extra anti-theft precautions
- Your car usage
- Your credit history and job
- Your marital status
How can I save on my Mitsubishi ASX premium?
You’ll save a lot of money by finding the best car insurance deal for a price that’s within your budget. Here are some ideas to lower the cost of your premium.
- Limit your annual mileage (where possible). By declaring a lower annual mileage, you’ll usually be offered a lower premium. So, consider whether you can occasionally walk or get public transport, rather than using your car.
- Pay annually rather than monthly. When you pay annually, you eliminate the possibility of being charged interest on monthly repayments.
- Install extra safety precautions. If you add anything that makes your car safer, insurers will usually be happy to lower your premium.
- Shop around for the best deal. Don’t settle for the renewal price offered by your existing provider. There will almost always be cheaper options available from competitors.
