Honda Insurance

Honda is Japan’s second-largest automobile manufacturer and interestingly it doesn’t just manufacture vehicles. It’s also the world’s largest manufacturer of internal combustion engines, producing over 14 million per year. The company also owns a luxury vehicle brand, and has entered into the aerospace industry through its venture GE Honda Aero Engines. Honda invests roughly 5% of its revenues into research and development.

The history of Honda

Honda’s story began in 1949, when founder Soichir Honda started a research institute in Hamamatsu, Japan. There he produced motorcycle engines, and later incorporated Honda Motor Co. Ltd. The company opened a storefront location in Los Angeles in 1959, and by 1962 had begun selling imported trucks and cars.

Honda today

Honda continued expanding its range towards the end of the 20th century, introducing innovations like the Honda NSX, which was the first all-aluminium monocoque vehicle. In 1995 Honda started a new company, the Honda Aircraft Company, which released the brand’s first jet aircraft in 2015. Today, it has production plants all over the world.

Honda Car Insurance Groups

We insure plenty of Honda models, so have pulled together a list of the insurance groups popular Hondas fall into. Of course, we can’t mention every Honda we insure so if your car isn’t on the list, it doesn’t mean to say we won’t insure it. Get a quote today to find out how much you could save.


Honda Civic Insurance Groups

The Civic is a range of vehicles that incorporates saloons, hatchbacks, coupés and more. The first Civic was launched in 1972 and was a subcompact car. Since then, the range has evolved in terms of the car sizes available and has been sold all round the globe.

The star of the range is arguably the Type-R. The engine size, combined with optional features like the premium sound system and tailgate detailing, put the Type-R in medium-high insurance groups. However, some of the simpler or less-powerful Civics are in lower insurance groups, meaning their owners will pay less for Honda car insurance.


Please be aware this is a guide only, insurers may group these cars differently.

Model Engine Size Insurance Group
Civic Hatchback (00–05) 1.4-2.0 9-23
Civic Type–R (01–05) 2.0 34
Civic IMA Saloon (03–05) 1.3 16-17
Civic Coupé (01–03) 1.7 22
Civic Type-R (07–10) 2.0 34
Civic Hatchback (06–11) 1.4-2.2 11-24
Civic Hybrid Saloon (06–10) 1.4 16
Civic Type–R (15–17) 2.0 33-34
Civic Tourer (14 onwards) 1.6-1.8 13-17
Civic Hatchback (12–17) 1.4-2.2 8-20


Honda Jazz Insurance Groups

The Honda Jazz is a range of smart yet compact city cars. It was launched in 2002, and Honda has since released two new generations of the car.

The most recent version of the Jazz has a large boot and rear seats that fold up in a variety of ways, making enough space to fit in even an adult mountain bike. Current Jazz cars in production have a 1.3-litre engine, with manual or automatic transmission available. The Jazz is in the low-middle end of insurance groups as a result, but it’s also available with optional features like mud guards and alloy wheels. If you choose one of the trim packs that include these features, remember that it might move you into a higher insurance group.


Please be aware this is a guide only, insurers may group these cars differently.

Model Engine Size Insurance Group
Jazz (02–08) 1.2-1.4 12-15
Jazz (08–15) 1.2-1.4 13-19
Jazz (15 onwards) 1.3 13


Honda CR-V Insurance Groups

The CR-V is a range of compact crossover SUVs that was originally launched in 1995. It’s a reliable, practical family car, and its abbreviated name stands for Comfortable Runabout Vehicle (although Honda also refers to it as the Compact Recreational Vehicle). These five-door cars seat five people and feature handy folding seats.

The CR-V has gone through several design changes throughout the years, and the most recent versions have a lot of optional add-ons. Two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive versions are available, and there is a choice of manual or automatic gearboxes. In terms of engines, current models have 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre versions to choose from, diesel or petrol options are available. The size of the car along with its engine size and available add-ons puts it into the medium insurance groups. It’s worth keeping this in mind, as it could affect your Honda car insurance costs.


Please be aware this is a guide only, insurers may group these cars differently.

Model Engine Size Insurance Group
CR-V (97–01) 2.0 19-21
CR-V (01–06) 2.0-2.2 25-30
CR-V (07–12) 2.0-2.2 27-29
CR-V (12–17) 1.6-2.2 22-28


Honda Accord Insurance Groups

The Honda Accord is a range of vehicles that was first launched over 40 years ago in 1976. The range has since evolved greatly, encompassing saloons, hatchbacks, sedans and coupés.

The newest Accords have only been produced as estates and saloons, with no hatchback available. Nevertheless, they are associated with high-quality build and excellent reliability. This is in part due to Honda’s popular 2.4-litre engine, although 2.0-litre and 2.2-litre petrol versions are available. This engine size, combined with the larger size of some Accords, puts them in to the mid-level insurance groups. As always, the insurance group your car is in will affect the cost of your Honda car insurance.


Please be aware this is a guide only, insurers may group these cars differently.

Model Engine Size Insurance Group
Accord Saloon (98–03) 1.8-2.3 17-34
Accord Hatchback (99–03) 1.8-2.3 17-25
Accord Coupé (98–01) 2.0-3.0 26-33
Accord Tourer (03–08) 2.0-2.4 23-30
Accord Saloon (03–08) 2.0-2.4 23-30
Accord Tourer (08–15) 2.0-2.4 23-29
Accord Saloon (08–15) 2.0-2.4 23-29


Honda S2000 Insurance Groups

The S2000 is a sports car/roadster range that was originally launched to celebrate Honda’s 50th birthday. Throughout the different generations of the range, the S2000 has always featured a convertible roof above its two seats.

Honda’s S2000 was so named because of its engine displacement of 2000cc, and the series has always maintained a 2.0-litre engine. Its sporty trim and premium features put it in the higher insurance groups, and this will affect your Honda car insurance quote.


Please be aware this is a guide only, insurers may group these cars differently.

Model Engine Size Insurance Group
S2000 (99–09) 2.0 40-44
