Insurance groups range from to 50, with low-performance vehicles sitting towards the bottom end of the range and loftier performance ones soaring towards 50. Skoda, Nissan, Fiat, Volkswagen, Chevrolet and Ford have all manufactured handy little run-arounds that keep your insurance premiums and other running costs low but let you still get around and do what you need to. 

Why buy a group 1 insurance car and what should you look for? 

It’s not just about the price of the insurance. Often, the road tax on Group 1 insurance cars is low, if they have a first-registration date between 1 March 2001 and 31 March 2017, and the fuel economy is good 
What do insurance companies look at when categorising a vehicle into an insurance groupPerformance is a biggieThey’ll consider the likelihood of a crash in the vehicle, so the more powerful your vehicle, the higher it will climb up the insurance groupsThey’ll also look as aspects such as safety, security, vehicle price, the cost of parts and how long it takes to repair any damage to the vehicle.
