Mazda insurance groups

Typically, when it comes to insurance groups, the lower the number, the cheaper your premiums.

Check out our tables of various Mazda models below to get an idea of which insurance group you might be in, but remember, things like your driving history, address and age are also factors when calculating a quote.

Take a look at our guide on how car insurance is calculated, if you'd like more information.

Mazda 2

The Mazda 2 is safe, lightweight, has good engine performance and lower CO2 emissions. The tax and insurance for these cars are at the lower end.

However, if you have an accident, the parts that may be needed to fix a Mazda will usually have to be imported which could be more expensive.

Mazda 3

The Mazda 3 has distinctive looks and a stylish interior design. The Mazda 3 has no small diesel engine choice so it could lack a certain 'oomph'.

Mazda 323

The Mazda 323 is spacious and practical. It serves well as a family car and ranks high on the scale of safety and reliability.

Its practicality is probably one of its strongest points. There is also great visibility when driving behind the wheel of a Mazda 323 with a lack of blind spots.

Mazda 5

The Mazda 5 is ideal as a family car because it has a practical amount of space and comes fitted with unique sliding rear doors which make it very accessible in tight parking spaces. Their lightweight design enables the doors to be opened and closed with ease and the second row seats slide forward with minimal effort making it very practical for third row passengers.

Mazda 6

The Mazda 6 has a reputation for being ideal for family and business, mostly because it blends safety and efficiency with raw performance. Among other 'family car' awards, the Mazda 6 also gained the Auto Express 'family car' award in 2013 for its sheer good looks and low emissions.

It also has less weight which helps to improve the efficiency and total performance.

Mazda CX-7

The Mazda CX-7 combines strong performance with good quality interior which can make it fun and stylish to drive. The CX-7 has been criticised for having no automatic gearbox, along with limited engine sizes to choose from. For this reason it didn't earn the popularity it could have.

The car can be expensive to buy new, as the price ranges from £24,000 to £27,000 (Feb 2014 prices). This could be a good reason to consider a fully comprehensive policy.

Mazda MX-5

The Mazda MX-5 has a very positive score on the Reliability Index. The index takes into account the cost of fixing and the frequency of failures.

In the case of an accident the parts needed to fix an MX-5 could be quite commonplace. However, as the MX-5 is manufactured in Japan, the car parts may be subject to import, therefore, repair costs for imported models could impact on the model's insurance premium.

Mazda RX-8

The RX-8 is good looking and stylish. It's a coupé with four doors along with reasonable sized boot space. However it has a reputation of being problematic, 'thirsty' and delicate.This results in higher running and maintenance cost, it's also recognised for its high Co2 emissions which pushes up the tax band.

Mazda cars: did you know?

  • Established - 1920
  • Founder - Jujiro Matsuda
  • Headquarters - Fuchu, Japan

Mazda’s big push towards popularity began with their use of the Wankel rotary engine in their early RX models, culminating in the immensely popular RX-7.

Producing similar power to V6 and V8 engines but at a fraction of the weight, Mazda rotary engines have now been reintroduced into the RX-8, their latest sports car offering. The RX-8 has been hailed for its bold styling, another Mazda hallmark, and includes the use of reverse-opening doors.

The Cosmo was the first rotary-engine car.
