Suzuki Ignis insurance group and cost
Compare car insurance costs for your Suzuki Ignis based on your age and location.
The Suzuki Ignis is a small city car produced by the Japanese manufacturer between 2000 and 2008. In this guide, you’ll find out how much it could cost to insure based on the specific model version and factors related to the driver.
Why choose a Suzuki Ignis?
This is a tiny car, but its looks channel an SUV. There aren’t many affordable, economical vehicles that look like this, so if that’s what you’re after, the Ignis could be for you.
What insurance group does a Suzuki Ignis fall under?
When it comes to car insurance, all vehicles are assigned a specific insurance group based on how expensive they should be to insure. These groups range from 1 (cheapest to insure) to 50 (most expensive). Insurers use these groups to determine a suitable premium for you. Suzuki Ignis models range from insurance groups 8 to 21, meaning the insurance will be on the cheaper side.
However, the costs will vary depending on the model of Suzuki Ignis you choose and what insurance group it falls in. As an example, a 30-year-old driver in an average postcode could pay around £700 for cover on a Suzuki Ignis 1.3 GA 3d, or around £822 for a Suzuki Ignis 1.5 Sport 3d.
You can find the insurance group, and likely cost, of your Suzuki Ignis model in the table below.

Which factors affect my Suzuki Ignis 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, cars with bigger engines will cost more to insure. An average 30-year-old may pay £816 for the 1.2-litre Suzuki Ignis 1.2 Dualjet SZ3 5d, but could pay around £822 for the 1.5-litre Suzuki Ignis 1.5 Sport 3d.
- Driver location. Insurers will use previous claims data to measure the likelihood of a motorist in your area making a claim on their car insurance. If you live in an area where motorists are more likely to make a claim, insurers will raise your premium to compensate for this added risk. For example, a 30-year-old in central London may pay £972 for insurance for a Suzuki Ignis 1.2 Dualjet, while the same 30-year-old in Newcastle may only pay £816. That’s a £156 difference between two motorists from two different cities driving the same car.
- Driver age. Statistically, the youngest drivers are most likely to claim on their car insurance. That’s why they are charged so much more to cover a Suzuki Ignis, or any vehicle! As an exmaple, the average 20-year-old driver in London may pay £1,691 for the Suzuki Ignis 1.2 Dualjet SZ3 5d, while the average 40-year-old Londoner will only pay £886. As you can see, in this example, the 20-year-old would have to pay almost double to insure a Suzuki Ignis for one year.
Other factors that influence the cost of your insurance include:
- 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
- Your marital status
- Your credit history and job
- Your no-claim discount
How can I save on my Suzuki Ignis premium?
When searching for insurance, you’ll want to find the best deal for a price that’s within your budget. With that in mind, here are some tricks you can try to lower the cost of your premium.
- Limit your car usage (where possible). Occasionally deciding to walk or get public transport, rather than using your car, can help to save on your premium.
- Pay annually rather than monthly. If you pay annually for car insurance, you eliminate the possibility of being charged interest on monthly payments.
- Install extra safety precautions. The safer you can make your car, the less of a risk it will be for companies to insure. That’s why many companies will happily reduce your premium when you install extra safety measures.
- Don’t blindly accept your renewal quote. When it’s time for renewal, make sure to shop around for the best deal using price comparison websites. Don’t blindly settle for the renewal price given to you. There may be cheaper options out there!
