Insuring Ford's rally-winning family car

  • Boasting a wealth in variety, available Focus models range from the 1.0 litre EcoBoost up to the sportier 2.5 litre ST models, so premiums can vary drastically depending on the model you own.
  • This variety can make insurance costs a little difficult to discern, so to help you out we've collected some of the key data for the Ford Focus range which insurers would use to calculate premiums, including engine size and insurance allocation
  • You can use this information to gauge where your Ford Focus may sit in comparison to others in terms of insurance premium.

Generally, cars with higher insurance groups, larger/more powerful engines, or lower safety ratings will receive higher insurance premiums. If you're looking to keep costs down then generally the lower a car's insurance group is, the better that model will suit your needs. However, the best way to get an accurate idea of Ford Focus insurance costs is to run a quote - in minutes we'll compare dozens of providers and return accurate prices to you.

If you're looking for power, the Focus RS or ST might be just what you've been looking for. Do bear in mind however that this additional power is likely to result in higher insurance premiums. If you're looking for a Ford Focus that is cheaper to get on the road, the standard one litre Focus hatchback could fit the bill. It is typically grouped well by insurers when compared to other Focus' and its smaller engine will also help when it comes to buying your road tax.

Research carried out by Confused.com back in 2011 showed that the Ford Focus was, on average, the third most expensive car to insure for drivers aged between 17 and 20. So this might not be the best car for you if you're on a tight budget. Additionally, Honestjohn.co.uk reported in April 2013 that the Ford Focus is the sixth most stolen car in the U.K. This information will not have escaped the notice of insurers and is likely to be reflected by the prices offered to Focus owners. However, this could be offset by other factors such as keeping your car in a secure, safe location and making sure it is fitted with modern anti-theft devices.
