Which cars are in car insurance group 13?

Cars in insurance group 13 are on the lower end of the Thatcham’s range of 50 car insurance groups, so they’re normally good value. They tend to have good security and safety features, average performance and relatively low repair costs, so they’re seen as less of a risk by insurance providers.

But, of course, there are plenty of other factors that come into play when it comes to pricing up car insurance premiums, such as a driver’s age, claims history, address and occupation. Even modifications and variations in factory specs can have an impact on price, so it’s good to know where your car sits in the pecking order before you begin looking for insurance, or before you buy a new vehicle.

Popular cars in group 13 include:

Who are group 13 cars most suitable for?

A group 13 car could be a good choice for you if you’re looking for a good middle-ground between cheaper car insurance and performance. Group 13 cars tend to have an average engine size but they’re on the lower end of the scale pricewise.

There are some great options for family cars in group 13, including the Skoda Scala and the Ford Focus. Group 13 cars could also be a reasonably good option for younger drivers facing high premiums, though they could potentially save more by opting for a car in a lower insurance group.
