Which cars are in insurance group 18?

Car insurance  groups range between 1 and 50. As a rule, the higher the number, the more you’ll have to pay for your insurance as cars in higher groups are more powerful and expensive than those in lower groups. However, what you pay for your insurance will also depend on other factors including your age, your driving history and where you live

Cars in insurance group 18 are leaning towards the more expensive, more powerful end of the market. But the good news is that, if you have a clean driving record and a few years’ experience under your belt, you should be able to find reasonably priced insurance for cars from brands like Alfa Romeo, Jeep and Mercedes-Benz.

Popular cars in group 18 include:

Make Model
Alfa Romeo MiTo Lusso MultiAir 1.4, 135 bhp, 3 dr hatchback

Who are group 18 cars most suitable for?
