Volvo XC60 insurance group
Find out which insurance group the Volvo XC60 falls under and the average cost of insurance.
The Volvo XC60 is a compact luxury crossover SUV. The Swedish manufacturer has put in a lot of effort to make this vehicle one of the premium options in this class. In this guide, you’ll learn everything you need to know about insuring a Volvo XC60.
Why choose a Volvo XC60?
The Volvo XC60 is incredibly customisable. It’s available with your choice of three powertrains, seven trims and eight engine sizes, so there’s something for everyone.
The newest edition of the vehicle includes several safety features, including automated emergency braking and lane-keeping assist, as standard.
What insurance group does the Volvo XC60 fall under?
Volvo XC60 car models fall within car insurance groups 31-44, so the cost of your premium will fall somewhere on the expensive side in comparison to other makes and models.
As you can expect, the costs will vary slightly between different Volvo XC60 insurance groups. For example, a 30-year-old driver in an average postcode could pay around £903 for cover on a Volvo XC60 Momentum Pro D4 AWD 5d (insurance group 31), or around £1,062 for a Volvo XC60 Inscription Pro T8 Twin Engine AWD auto 5d that is in insurance group 42. From this comparison, we can see the impact on premium pricing when one car is in a much higher insurance group.

Which factors affect my Volvo XC60 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. The larger the engine, the higher the cost of your insurance. For example, it may cost £1,054 for insurance for a Volvo XC60 Inscription Pro D4 AWD 5d, while the bigger engined Volvo XC60 Polestar Engineered T8 Twin Engine AWD auto 5d may cost £1,258 to insure. So, you can expect to pay up to £200 more for a larger engine on this vehicle.
- 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 £1,050 for insurance for a Volvo XC60 Momentum Pro D4 AWD auto 5d, while the same 30-year-old in Newcastle may only pay £903. As you can see, motorists who live in a large city with a high crime rate can expect to pay significantly more.
- 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 £2,032 for the Volvo XC60 Inscription Pro T5 AWD auto 5d, while the average 40-year-old Londoner will only pay £1,064. It’s relatively common for a 20-year-old driver to pay almost double compared to a 40-year-old and that is the case with the Volvo XC60.
Other factors that influence the cost of your insurance include:
- Your driving history and activity
- Your no-claim discount
- Your car’s security features
- Your car’s anti-theft precautions
- Your marital status
- Your credit history and job
- Your car’s safety rating score
- The model of your car
- The age of your car
- Annual miles driven
How can I save on my Volvo XC60 premium?
Car insurance is a necessary legal requirement, but you don’t need it to break the bank. Here are some tricks you can try to lower the cost of your premium.
- Reduce your annual mileage. With a lower annual mileage, you’ll be deemed a lower risk of making a claim and usually be afforded a lower premium.
- Pay annually. When you pay annually, you avoid having to pay interest on monthly repayments.
- Install extra safety precautions. The safer your car is, the less of a risk you’re deemed of making a claim. Again, this will help to lower your premium.
- Don’t just accept your renewal quote. Make sure you shop around and don’t just settle for the renewal price given to you. There is likely to be a cheaper option available from a competitor.
