Which cars are in car insurance group 11?

Insurance group numbers run from 1 to 50, with 1 generally being the cheapest to insure. Cars in group 11 are towards the cheaper end of the scale, but remember the overall cost of your insurance premium is also decided by your age, where you live, your driving history and even your job title.

Even though group 11 is towards the cheaper end of the range, it doesn’t mean that there aren’t well-known and well-loved makes and models – including the Volkswagen Golf, the BMW series 2 and the Nissan Qashqai – as well as more obvious models like the Ford Fiesta. There’s also a mix of body types, not just small hatchbacks.

Popular makes of cars in group 11 include:

Make Model
BMW 2 Series 216d Sport 114bhp, 5dr, diesel
Ford Fiesta Hatchback 1.0 EcoBoost 125 Zetec Edition Auto 123bhp, 5dr, petrol
Hyundai i30 Hatchback SE Nav 1.6 CRDi 110PS 108bhp, 5dr, diesel
Kia Sportage 1.6 GDi 1 130bhp, 5dr, petrol
Mini Hatchback 1.5 One D (Tech Pack) 93bhp, 5dr, diesel
Nissan Qashqai 1.3 DiG-T MH Visia 138bhp, 5dr, petrol
Peugeot Traveller MPV Active Compact 1.6 auto (8 seats) 93bhp, 5dr, diesel
Renault Captur Play dCi 95 93bhp, 5dr, diesel
Toyota Yaris Cross SUV 1.5 Hybrid Icon CVT 114bhp, 5dr, hybrid
Volkswagen Golf Hatchback 1.2 TSI Bluemotion Tech S 103bhp, 3dr, petrol

Who are group 11 cars most suitable for? 

It doesn’t matter if you prefer a hatchback, MPV or SUV, you can find a group 11 vehicle style to suit you. Group 11 is good for people who aren’t looking to set any new lap records and want fuel economy, as they don’t usually have the most powerful engine sizes. But there are many great practical run-arounds and family cars. Group 11 might also indicate that it could be at the cheaper end when it comes to parts and repairs too – but obviously that will depend on what’s needed.
