As you can see from the table above, Audi have a large range of vehicles, so it can be quite difficult to predict potential insurance costs without taking a deeper look into the variables. Insurers will rate on a number of characteristics of the vehicle (as well as many based on you), including engine size, replacement parts cost, number of seats and value – these are known as rating factors.

To help you understand where your Audi lies in comparison to others in the range, in the tables below we’ve put together some information on Audi’s current range of vehicles, and some of their various specifications.

  • The Association of British insurers allocate vehicles insurance groups based on the above factors, and many more - you can find more information on group allocation here
  • The groups are numbered 1-50, with the lower numbers generally being cheaper to insure, and the higher, generally more expensive
  • Insurers will generally charge higher premiums for cars with larger, more powerful engines or higher values, because of the greater risk they pose to the insurer

Using the information below you can get a snapshot of some of the main factors of each vehicle in Audi’s range, that will contribute to insurance cost, as well as their tax bracket range. For more information, you might want to look at our collection of guides and articles, including how premiums are calculated;

If you want to find out more about potential running and premium costs for your car, we have dozens of useful guides and articles available below, including information on comparing policies.

Audi A1

The A1 fills the role of supermini and more, seeming to have something for everyone, with an engine range that goes from the modest 1.2 SE, right up to the 2.0 S Line.

If economy is paramount to you, the hatchback SE 1.2 or 1.6 models could be perfect with low group ratings and tax bands of A – C.

Audi A3

With A3’s to suit so many tastes that it’s difficult to restrict them to a single category – you can get the economical 1.2 hatchback (cheap to insure and tax), or the muscular RS3 Sportback, which is neither (but is a hot hatch with 340bhp!).

Audi A4

The current A4 range has options to suit the economy-minded, such as the 1.8 Saloon, as well as those seeking a particularly powerful and top end driving experience, such as the RS4 Avant.

With such a variety in the A4 range, it's no surprise that costs can vary dramatically depending on the model you opt for.

Audi A5

The A5 is also available with a wide range of engine options, ranging from the 1.8 Sportback to the 4.2 litre RS5, which when combined with the multitude of safety features available, means the A5 can fall into a broad range of groups.

Audi A6

The A6 is an executive car that has been on our roads since 1995, and is currently in its fourth generation.

Looking at the different generations of A6 is a great way to see how Audi’s styling has evolved with the times whilst their penchant for quality engineering has remained.

Audi A7

The A7 has far fewer options in terms of styles and engines than other lines, making its potential range of insurance groups smaller.

You should note that any additional extras and non-standard items you purchase may not be included in this rating and should be declared to your insurer to ensure they are properly covered.

Audi A8

With engine options from 2.8 to 6.3 litres, the A8 is at the top end of the range, which as you'd expect, can mean higher running and insurance costs.

Tax bands and group ratings for the A8 are typically higher than other vehicles in the range, which means that comparing policies, protection and prices is important in ensuring you have all the cover you need at the right price, and that’s where Confused.com can help.

Audi Q3

The Q3 is a small crossover SUV in the same mould as the Nissan Qashqai or the Range Rover Evoque – ideal for people that require the practicality of an off-road car, but don’t really need to go off-road.

This means that whilst it has the look of a sporty 4x4, Audi have reined in the engine power and focused more on comfort and style, producing a large, practical car that isn’t too thirsty on fuel. This makes crossovers typically cheaper to insure and run than normal 4x4s.

Audi Q5

With a choice of three petrol and two diesel engines, there isn’t the same range that you’d find with many of the vehicles in Audi’s range, though there is enough scope for most to find the right package.

Mid-range group ratings and tax bands make this a large, tech-loaded, high-end SUV, without costing a fortune to keep on the road.

Audi Q7

If you’ve splashed out on a luxury SUV like the Q7, you’ll want to make sure you have the right cover in place protecting it. With engine options ranging from 3.0 to 6.0 litres, the premium and cover you get is going to depend a lot on the specific Q7 model you own.

Audi R8

Being a supercar, with engine options starting at 4.2 litres, the R8 doesn’t fall into a particularly broad range of insurance groups or tax bands.

A high value and powerful engine have led insurers to consider it a hefty risk and as such, all models across the R8 range fall into groups rated 48 to 50 only.

Audi TT

As you'd expect from a top-of-the-range sports car, saving money on insurance was not a priority during design. While the TT does fall into a wide range of insurance groups and tax brackets, they tend to be toward the more expensive end of the scale.
