Volkswagen Insurance

Volkswagen are one of the most successful international car brands to date– they have a rich history of designing iconic cars that are synonymous with the era they were built. When you think of the 70s, the Volkswagen Campervan springs to mind. But what about the 60s? The Volkswagen Beetle of course! It’s not just the cars that are cleverly designed, Volkswagen has won numerous accolades for its innovative advertising and marketing over the years, which has helped establish it as a global super brand of car manufacturing. 

How much would I be expecting to pay for a Volkswagen car insurance quote?

We insure a wide range of Volkswagen models, from the smaller Fox to the Golf Alltrack. Naturally quotes vary due to the value and power of the car, among other factors such as where you park at night. To find out how much you could save on your Volkswagen insurance get a quote with esure today.

Would esure insure my Volkswagen if I were to take it to Europe?

We do offer European car insurance if you wanted to take your Volkswagen to Europe. If you just use your certificate of insurance as proof you’ll be covered at most to a third party only level.  But for a small fee you can match your protection to what you have in the UK. To find the full list of European countries we cover, please visit out European car cover page.

Volkswagen Car Insurance Groups

We insure plenty of Volkswagen models, so have pulled together a list of the insurance groups popular Volkswagens fall into. Of course we can’t mention every Volkswagen 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.

Volkswagen polo insurance groups

Polos come in all shapes and sizes–some have more techy features, and bigger engines, while others are smaller, and designed to weave through narrow roads. You can find Polos in low to mid-range insurance groups.
 
If you plan on doing long distance driving you might want to consider opting for a model with a bigger engine to give you that bit more oomph. These days the newer Polos come with a range of features such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Emergency City Breaking. It’s worth keeping in mind that opting for a larger engine and more techy features could affect the insurance group your car falls into.

Volkswagen UP! Insurance groups

The Up! is the ultimate city run around, and falls into low range insurance groups, due to its small engine size. The boot is surprisingly large for a car of this size, so you have the benefits of a bigger car, without the potentially hefty insurance price tag.

Due to the small engine, it drives economically so you won’t have to break the bank when it comes to refuelling for frequent shorter journeys or longer drives. Coupled with the fact that it falls into a low range of insurance groups it could be cheaper to run than other Volkswagen models.

Volkswagen Golf Insurance Groups

The Volkswagen Golf models are incredibly varied, and overlap into many insurance groups.

Engine sizes of this particular model are mixed and the insurance groups it’s found in range from 6 all the way up to 32–sportier models, for example the Golf GTI, fall into the higher insurance groups, due to having more power.

Other models include the spacious Golf Estate, the off-road Golf Alltrack, and the smooth Golf Cabriolet. Engine sizes of these cars do differ, as well as technical specifications–such as park assist and cruise control, which explains the wide-ranging insurance groups these Volkswagen models appear in.

Volkswagen Sirocco Insurance groups

The Sirocco is a dynamic and exciting Volkswagen sporty coupé. The powerful Sirocco R falls into mid to high-end insurance groups, due to its turbo charged engine and power. 

Newer models boast a Composition Media System, which has a DAB radio, and Android phone connectivity. It’s worth keeping in mind that although high-end technical specs can give your car the edge, these gadgets do cost more to repair if you’re involved in an accident–and as a result your car could be placed into a higher insurance bracket.

Volkswagen Fox Insurance groups

The Volkswagen Fox is a nifty hatchback, ideal for city dwellers who need to get in and out of traffic, and park in tight spaces. The maximum engine size for the Fox is a modest 1.4, so it falls into the smallest insurance groups. The Fox doesn’t come with many trims and there aren’t too many engine sizes to choose from–which makes it easier to work out what insurance group your Fox could fall into.
