Which cars are in car insurance group 6?

Insurance group numbers run from 1 to 50, with 1 generally the cheapest to insure. Car insurance groups are based on factors such as how safe a car is, how much it’s worth, the size of the engine, and how much it will cost to repair.

Cars in group 6 are typically at the cheaper end of car insurance, although premiums are calculated by looking at a whole range of different factors, including your age, where you live, your claims history, and what you do for a living.

As well as being generally cheaper to insure, you’ll find models of some of the most popular car makes in group 6, including firm favourites like the Renault Clio and the Vauxhall Corsa.

Who are group 6 cars most suitable for? 

Cars in group 6 tend to have good security and safety features and they’re on the lower end of the scale pricewise, so they’re a good choice for drivers looking to keep their insurance costs down. Group 6 cars could be a good option for young drivers facing eye-watering premiums, or drivers with a bumpy claims history looking to make savings where they can. 

Drivers looking for a higher performance from their car may want to look at cars in a higher insurance group.
