What is the Volkswagen Golf?

The VW Golf is an iconic car. And in its 40-year lifespan it’s become well-known for its reliable engineering and high-quality production. This has made it a safe bet as a solid all-rounder for drivers of all ages.

How much does a VW Golf cost to insure?

According to our data, the average cost of insurance for a VW Golf is £875.81*. However, the amount you’ll pay will depend on the model that you drive and the insurance group it fits into, among other things. 

The VW Golf insurance group ranges from 4 to 18, covering a number of different models such as the Cabriolet, Estate, GTI, Hatchback and R Cabriolet. Insurance providers often take these specifications into consideration, as well as the driver’s age, where they live and their history on the road.  

Typically, the Estate and the Hatchback VW Golfs are cheaper to insure, while the R Cabriolet and the GTi cost most since they offer the most power and speed.

If you like the fast and the furious variety, then at the other end of the scale are the VW Golfs with more horsepower. The Volkswagen Golf insurance group 18 features the much nippier GTis and the R-types.
