Car Insurance Groups

Discover the impact of car insurance groups on premiums

By Peter Carr on Wednesday 22 November 2017

If you’re looking to save money on your premium, an understanding of car insurance groups and how they affect the price of your policy can be useful.

In this Article

Every car belongs to a car insurance group, which effectively bands cars from the cheapest to most expensive to insure. Insurers will use the Group Rating System, or their own groupings, in their calculation of premiums.

Buying cars that belong to a low insurance group is one way you can drive down the cost of your premium. Another way to reduce premiums is to compare cheap car insurance quotes and find the most appropriate cover for the best price.

What is the Group Rating system?

Insurance grouping is decided by the Group Rating Panel (members of the Association of British Insurers and the Lloyds Market Association), which is supported by Thatcham Research.

This panel decides which insurance group new car models fall into – group one being the cheapest, and group 50 the most expensive to insure.

MoneySuperMarket data, taken between June and December 2016, shows that some of the cheapest cars to insure fall into groups one to three, including the Fiat Panda, Fiat 500 and the Ford Ka.

Low insurance car groups

Normally, the cheapest cars to insure are the same vehicles that are relatively inexpensive to purchase – low-specification models with smaller engines. Therefore you can expect to find cars such as the Citroen C1, Vauxhall Corsa and Volkswagen Up! In the lower groups and among the cheapest to insure.

We’ve analysed the data and below is a breakdown of some of the cheapest car groups to insure, depending on which age group you fall in to.

How are car insurance groups decided?

Cars are assigned to their insurance group based on a number of factors. These include:

New car values: The new car price and specifications provide a guide to replacement and repair costs.

Damage and parts costs: The likely extent of damage to each model and the price of the parts involved also indicate repair costs, and lower costs usually mean a lower group rating.

Parts prices: A list of 23 common parts is used to compare one manufacturers’ parts costs to another.

Repair times: Long repair times mean higher costs and a higher group rating. According to Thatcham Research, over half of all money paid out in motor insurance claims goes on repairing cars – so the cost of spare parts and repair times are major factors in pricing motor insurance.

Performance: High performance cars are at higher risk of frequent insurance claims, so the acceleration and top speed of vehicles are taken into account.

Safety: Vehicles fitted with AEB (Autonomous Emergency Braking) systems are more likely to avoid ‘low speed front to rear’ accidents and so could benefit from a lower insurance group rating.

Bumper compatibility: The alignment and structure of bumpers can help a car to receive a lower insurance rating.

Car security: Cars with security features, such as alarm or immobilisation systems and high security door locks, could see a lower insurance group. But be aware, if you lose a key or fob it will be more expensive to replace.

Using this MoneySuperMarket tool, you can find out how the leading car insurance providers approach the subject.

Find out which insurance group your car is in

Every car in the UK is allocated an insurance group to help insurers work out the cost of cover, running from 1 (cheapest premiums) to 50 (highest).

Save money on your car insurance

Car insurance is a hefty expense, but there’s a good chance you can save money by shopping around rather than staying with the same firm at renewal. Loyalty doesn’t pay!

Cutting the cost of car insurance

Buying a vehicle in one of the lower insurance groups is one of the best ways to cut the cost of your policy.

However, if you already have a car not among the lower groups and want to reduce the price of your policy, there are still a number ways to get a cheaper insurance quote.

  • Add some security-enhancing systems, such as recognised and approved immobilisers and alarms. These devices make your car more secure and therefore reduce the chances of you claiming due to theft.
  • If you choose to pay a higher voluntary excess – the amount you contribute in the event of a claim – then you may get a lower premium quoted.
  • Perhaps pay the annual policy upfront in one lump sum. This will typically work out cheaper than monthly direct debits as insurers often charge interest on monthly payments.
  • Choosing to include just the essentials and not adding optional extras – such as having the use of a courtesy car if yours is unavailable – will also keep costs down.
  • All of the above will help, but one of the best ways to find the best value insurance policy for you is to shop around.

Or try telematics

  • New and young drivers might consider a telematics insurance policy. This uses a satellite tracker to monitor how well the car is being driven. By measuring speed, acceleration and braking, this technology gives insurers a detailed picture of the risks drivers pose.
  • In short, safer and considerate drivers can be rewarded with lower insurance premiums – MoneySuperMarket data suggests that young drivers could save up to £200 a year on their premium if they have a telematics policy.

Correcting an Audi no-go problem

April 10, 2012 | by Information provided by Identifix Inc.

Owners of Audi models (1020 A4, 2008-2010 A5/S5, 2008-2010 A6, 2008-2010 A8 and 2010 Q5) may complain about intermittent no-drive when selecting driving mode D or R. The vehicle can be driven only in 3rd gear (limp home mode).

The following DTC(s) may be stored:

P0730 (transmission monitoring incorrect gear ratio)

P2700 (clutch A implausible)

P2701 (clutch B implausible)

P2702 (clutch C implausible)

P2703 (clutch D implausible)

In rare circumstances, if the vehicle was in motion and the ATF strainer becomes loose, the transmission may go into limp mode and can only be driven in 3rd gear. In cold conditions, the gearbox shifts with a delay. In hot conditions, suction noises may be heard.

Because of a design change, the ATF strainer can come loose from the guide of the ATF pump intake duct. As a result, air can be drawn in. Air causes the oil to foam, which prevents the clutches from closing completely.

1. Check the gearbox control unit for DTCs and create a diagnosis protocol.

– If there are no faults stored but the concern can be duplicated, proceed to Step 2.

– If one or more of the DTCs are stored, proceed to Step 3.

2. Check the ATF fluid level per ELSA instructions.

– If the fluid level seems to high and foamy due to air mixed with the ATF, proceed to Step 3.

– If the fluid is at the correct level and the fluid is not foamy, open a TACS contact and call the Audi Technical Assistance Center.

3. Drain the ATF into a clean container and remove the ATF pan.

4. If the filter was found in the bottom of the pan, proceed to Step 6.

5. If the filter is still seated in the valve body, try to remove it with light force.

– When removed, if the filter seal remained behind in the valve body or is not fully installed on the neck of the filter, proceed to Step 6.

– If the seal is fully installed on the filter as shown in Figure 1, open a TACS contact and call the Audi Technical Assistance Center.

Figure 1. This shows a correctly installed filter seal.

6. Obtain a new ATF filter. Check whether the new filter is the improved version with the numbers 22222 and 33333 printed on the top of the filter (Figure 2). If numbers are not printed on the filter, do not install it. Return the part and obtain another filter.

Figure 2. The replacement filter should display two rows of numbers as shown.

7. Replace the ATF filter according to the repair manual. Make sure that the magnets in the oil sump are not stuck on the underside (metal side) of the loose ATF filter and are not removed with the old strainer. The magnets must be reinstalled in the pan to protect the transmission from metallic particle abrasion.

8. If there are complaints of gear shift quality after replacing the ATF filter, clear the adaptations in the test plan and then perform the GFF or Guided Functions Adaptations Drive.

Car insurance groups

Use our interactive tool to find out your vehicle’s insurance group

  • The Association of British Insurers (ABI) can determine a car’s insurance group
  • Ratings are based on the risk of the vehicle and affect the cost of insuring it
  • Check a car’s insurance group rating using the form below

Check your car insurance group

Key points

  • The Group Rating Panel puts vehicles in groups between one (lowest) and 50 (highest) every month after assessing data gathered from Thatcham
  • Not all insurers use this rating, but they will use something similar when they assess a vehicle
  • The lower the insurance group, the lower your premium is likely to be, but.
  • . your vehicle is only one factor when it comes to calculating insurance prices – there are many other factors in play that may prove more significant

What is an insurance group?

The Group Rating Panel is made up of representatives of the insurance industry and meets every month to determine car insurance groups.

It assigns a group number between one and 50 to every model of vehicle. A group one vehicle would be in the lowest insurance group, group 50 the highest.

The main factor used by the panel to determine groupings is research conducted by the Motor Insurance Repair Research Centre (Thatcham).

Cars with low insurance groups

If you’re shopping around for a new car, knowing its insurance group and how much it’ll cost to insure, may help to sway your decision. Use the calculator above to find the insurance group of a specific car you’ve got your eye on, or use the table below for an overview of the group.

Damage and parts costs

If it doesn’t cost the earth to repair your car, and the parts are ten a penny, you’ll find that your car insurance group is nice and low too.

Repair times

If it’ll take days and weeks to repair your car, that’s a larger number of mechanic hours on the clock – you may find the insurance group is higher than a car that’s in and out of the garage in 15 minutes flat.

This may be the case if you’ve got an imported car or classic car, because chances are the parts are rarer, need to be shipped in, and may take specialist know-how and time to fit.

The value of your car as new informs the insurance group because it reveals how much it would really cost to repair or replace.

Availability of body shells

The panel takes into consideration the cost to replace the basic skeletal frame of the car too, aside from the value of the spare parts.

Again, if the frame is affordable and widely available it may reduce the insurance group.

Performance

If you want cheaper car insurance, the odds will be in your favour if you don’t buy a high performance car that accelerates to top speeds in the blink of an eye.

Finally, to find a car with a low insurance group, look at its security features, namely its locks, alarms, and immobilisers.

Not all car insurance companies choose to use the groups set by the panel, with some opting to set their own groupings instead.

But rating factors will be similar and if you use the tool above to find your car’s insurance group you’ll get an idea of where your vehicle stands in the table.

In our quotes process you can then quickly and easily compare multiple insurance brands to find the right policy at the right price.

Whichever set of insurance groups an insurer uses, you’ll typically find that cars in lower groups attract a cheaper premium.

Cars in higher insurance groups attract a higher premium, often because they’re high-performance models or prestige cars that have expensive repair or replacement costs.

Bear in mind that making any non-factory-standard modification to your vehicle is likely to override the standard group rating in the eyes of an insurer and there’s a good chance that this will make the car more expensive to cover.

It’s not all about the insurance group.

Remember that, whatever rating your vehicle has, there may be more significant factors affecting the price of your insurance, such as the profile of the driver and where he or she lives.

As just one example of things to consider, a poor security rating for your vehicle may be somewhat countered in the eyes of certain insurers if you take measures to improve the security of your vehicle yourself.

09L gearboxThe 09L gearbox . Compared to the previous 5-speed automatic gearbox, the 09L gearbox has the following advantages and. replaces the previous 5-speed automatic gearboxes improvements:01V and 01L up to an engine torque of 450 Nm.Fundamentally, it differs from the 09E gearbox in that – Six gear ratio stepsthe latter has a lower torque capacity and uses lighterduty components. – Wider overall ratio spread (ratio range)The positioning of the front axle drive (differential)behind the torque converter was adopted from the – Higher torque capacityprevious models. – Weight reduction by approx. 14 kg (compared to 01V gearbox) – Increased efficiency – Improved shift quality – Higher shifting speeds – Improved DSP (Dynamic Shift Program)Electro-hydraulic control Overrun downshifts can be shortened by approx. 50 % through the active application of intermediate throttle,To increase shift speed, particularly when shifting in turn leading to a noticeable gain in agility.down, the gearshift sequence was enhanced and other This modification markedly improves the spontaneity offunctions were developed in combination with the downshifts even under slight throttle.engine management system.Multiple downshifts are grouped together, contributingto a marked gain in spontaneity. As a result of thismodification, the next gearshift is prepared electricallyand hydraulically while the first downshift is still inprogress, so that it can subsequently be made withoutany delay. Reference With model year ´06 and later, specific adap- tion values of the 6-speed automatic gear- boxes 09E and 09L can be read and deleted using the diagnostic tester. These functions were available for the 0AT, 0B6 and 0BQ gear- boxes since launch. For more information, see page 54 ff. With the launch of the Audi A6 Avant (model year ´05), the gearbox was integrated in the immo- biliser for the first time. For more information, see page 52 ff.10

Gear ratio Comparison of the 09L and 01V gearbox ratiosThe ratio spread was increased by 22 % over the 01V gear- 09L 01Vbox. Gear ratioThis has largely been used to implement a smaller start- Gear ratio 3.665ing ratio for enhanced starting dynamics. 1.999 1st gear 4.171 1.407The higher ratio spread means, firstly, that more wheel 1.000torque is available for vehicle acceleration in the low 2nd gear 2.340 0.742gears and, secondly, that the vehicle can be run at lowerengine speeds during motorway driving, which in turn 3rd gear 1.521 4.096means less noise and better fuel economy. 4.94 4th gear 1.143The basic gear ratio configuration for maximum speedis determined by the axle ratio, and is different for 5th gear 0.867diesel engines and petrol engines.In the case of diesel engines, top speed is achieved in 6th gear 0.6916th gear.In the case of petrol engines, top speed is achieved in Reverse (R)gear 3.4035th gear.Depending on engine power, maximum speed is Ratio spread 6.04achieved in 5th or 6th gear. 325_050 11
