Car insurance groups explained
There are 50 car insurance groups and the higher the group, the higher your car insurance premium is likely to be. This tends to be because they're top of the range models, those that would be expensive to replace or repair, or are targeted by thieves.
So, generally speaking, if your vehicle’s in one of the lower groups for cars you’ll pay a lower premium. This is something to bear in mind when you’re in the market for a new car and looking to save pennies.
But how many of us actually know what car insurance group our car is in? And if you’re looking for a new car, wouldn’t it be great to find out the group before you bought it?
This is where our car insurance group checker comes in. Using data from Thatcham, the motor insurers’ automotive research centre, our tool can show you what group the majority of cars on the road are in. If the car you’re looking for doesn’t show up, it’s best to do a quote to get a good idea of what your premium could be.
Just input your car’s details, or one you’re looking to buy, and you can find out its group.
