Which cars are in car insurance group 5?

Car insurance group numbers run from 1 to 50, with 50 being the most expensive, so cars in group 5 tend to be cheaper to insure. That’s because they typically have a relatively small engine size and they’re on the cheaper side to buy. Cars in group 5 tend to be safe, with good security features so they’re less of a risk to insure, and when they do need repairs, parts are usually easy to come by and relatively inexpensive.

Who are group 5 cars most suitable for?

A group 5 car could be a good fit for you if you’re more concerned about cost than the power or performance of your car’s engine. That’s because they’re on the lower end of the market to buy and insure.  

Group 5 cars could be a good fit for younger drivers who are already facing higher premiums and want to make savings where they can.  

But remember, the car you drive is only one factor affecting the cost of your car insurance. Other details will be taken into account too, including your age, where you live and your job.
