Skoda car insurance

Skoda, which had previously been known as a manufacturer of cheap and cheerful family cars, have undergone a significant change in recent years to transform their brand image.

Models like the Octavia, Fabia and Superb – stylish, reliable and competitively priced cars - have changed public opinion of the brand, and brought them previously unseen success.

  • From the compact Fabia to the larger Superb, the Skoda brand has competitors in several car markets
  • Most cars in the range have a selection of engine options from 1.0 to 2.0 litres, meaning they can fall into a wide range of insurance groups and tax bands

Skoda Fabia

The Skoda Fabia is very diverse. With a range of models to choose from, it really does seem to have something for everyone, from small economic hatchbacks to larger estates. It also has a broad range of engine options, all of which means it can fall into a wide range of insurance groups.

Insurance companies calculate premiums based on a huge range of factors with car and engine size being large contributors. A good way to gauge potential insurance costs is to use a car's recommended ABI group. In the table below, we’ve collected this information across cars in the Fabia range.

Skoda Fabia Engine Size Typical Insurance Group* Tax Band
Estate (01-07) 1.2 - 2.0 2 - 16 C - J
Estate (08 on) 1.2 - 1.9 4 - 16 A - I
Hatchback (00-07)
1.2 - 2.0 2 - 13 C - J
Hatchback (07 on) 1.2 - 2.9 3 - 16 A - I
Saloon (01-05) 1.4 - 1.9 5 - 10 E - I
vRS (03-07) 1.9 18 E - F
vRS (10 on) 1.4 27 F

Skoda Octavia

The Octavia is one of Skoda’s best-selling small family cars, and is at the forefront of the brand's re-design and new image. It has been created to embody a quality driving experience at an affordable price, and these ideas are reflected in its key characteristics.

In the table below, we've collected some of the key characteristics of the Skoda Octavia that can impact your yearly insurance and running costs, including ABI insurance groupings and tax bands. You can use this information to gauge potential costs across the Skoda Octavia range.

vRS (13 on)  2.0 26 - 29  C - F

Skoda Roomster

Praised for its spacious interior and practicality, the bulk of poor feedback for the Skoda Roomster has been for its appearance, which isn’t to everyone’s taste. To make up for it, the Roomster has a lot to offer in terms of yearly running costs.

The Roomster can make for a very large, cheap to run family car, though insurers will still use many details about you, your driving habits and history when calculating premiums. You can use the table below to gauge potential running costs across the Roomster range.

 SE 1.2 - 1.9  6 - 14 D - I
 Green line 1.2 9 B
SE plus 1.2 - 1.6 6 - 14 D - F

Skoda Superb

As the stylish and elegant poster-car of the brand, the Skoda Superb sets the standards for other models in the range to follow. As a large, powerful car, with an engine range that goes up to 3.6 litres, finding competitive insurance quotes for the Superb may be difficult.

In the table below, we've collected the typical insurance groups and tax bands for models in the current Superb range. You can use this information to gauge how potential insurance and running costs may vary between models.

Standard trim 1.8 - 2.8 18 - 33 G - L
Estate 1.4 - 3.6 13 - 35 C - L
Hatchback 1.4 - 3.6 13 - 35 B - L

Skoda Yeti

The Skoda Yeti has enjoyed some of the greatest success in Skoda’s history. Since its launch in 2009, it has picked up numerous prestigious awards, as well as surviving some rigorous, if unorthodox Top Gear testing.

In the table below, you’ll find a breakdown of some of the models in the Yeti range, along with their typical insurance groups and tax bands. You can use this information to gauge potential running and insurance costs across the range.
