Get Suzuki car insurance online

Best known for their motorbikes and racing success, Suzuki’s car division has been a major name in worldwide markets since the 1960’s, and their compact family cars are a popular sight on UK roads.

When it comes to insurance companies and premiums, each model will be treated differently, so the price you pay will depend heavily on the particular Suzuki you own.

  • Insurers calculate premiums based on a huge range of factors about you, your driving history and your car
  • Engine size, power, value and typical repair costs are just some of the factors that may impact your premium
  • Most cars are allocated a recommended insurance group by the ABI (Association of British Insurers), which can give you an idea of the potential insurance costs

Higher insurance groups or tax bands generally mean higher costs. You can use this information to gauge potential insurance and running costs across the range, or look at individual Suzuki cars in more detail using the tables below.

Suzuki Alto

If cutting costs and emissions are priorities, you can’t go far wrong with the Suzuki alto. With its great looks, small and economic engines and smooth handling, it’s tough to pick holes in this compact all-rounder.

Engines in the Alto range start at 1.0 litre and go up to 1.1, meaning that although there is not a lot of choice, there is consistency. The Alto is designed to be cheap to buy, to run and to insure, so a huge range of engines is not practical or necessary.

Suzuki Alto  Engine range  Typical insurance group*  Tax bracket 
Alto (97-01) 1.0 7 E - H
Alto (03-05) 1.1 9 C - G
Alto (09 on) 1.0 4 A - C

Suzuki Grand Vitara

Suzuki have been a presence on UK roads since the late 70’s, and are well known as a maker of stylish town cars which, although small, boast surprisingly spacious interiors and a high level of quality.

The Grand Vitara may vary a little from its siblings in its large size, but shares in their good reputation. Modern versions of the Vitara still get strong reviews for their style and off-road ability, despite being what most would consider a ‘soft’-roader.

Suzuki Grand Vitara  Engine range  Typical insurance group*  Tax bracket 
Grand Vitara (98-05) 1.6 - 2.7 17 - 27 J - K
Soft top (99-03) 1.6 - 2.0 19 - 23 J - K
Grand Vitara (05 on) 1.6 - 2.4 17 - 24 H - L

Suzuki Jimny

The Suzuki Jimny is a small 4x4, or mini SUV, which has been in production for almost 50 years. It is a stylish and recognisable car that is still a common sight on UK roads, and is still considered among the top affordable, mini SUV’s in its class.

Finding competitive insurance quotes for your Jimny, whatever its age, will depend a lot on the model you own.

Life 1.8 17 J
Special 1.3 13 I
JLX 1.3 13 H - J
SZ3 1.3 13 G
JLX+ 1.3 14 H - I
JLX Mode 1.3 14 I
SZ4 1.3 15 G - H
Soft top 1.3 13 H - J

Suzuki Kizashi

Suzuki's Kizashi is a relatively young model in the Suzuki range, which has only been in production since 2009. It may come with a good collection of features as standard, but has seen low UK sales numbers, likely due to the lack of engine and trim options.

2.4 Sport CVT 2.4 26 J

Suzuki Splash

The Suzuki Splash has been on the market for a little over 5 years, but already has a strong presence on UK roads and is a true competitor in its field.

As a small city car, the Splash range sticks to fairly low powered petrol engines to keep insurance and fuel costs low. This not only helps your fuel get you further when driving in the city, but can also help reduce your yearly insurance premium.

Suzuki Splash  Engine range  Typical insurance group*  Tax bracket 
SZ2 1.0 7 B
SZ3 1.0 - 1.2 7 - 11 B - C
GLS 1.0 - 1.2 7 - 11 C - D
SZ4 1.2 11 C - E
GLS+ 1.2 11 D - F
DDi S 1.3 11 C

Suzuki Swift

As a Supermini, the Suzuki Swift finds itself competing with the likes of the VW Polo and Ford KA, in a rich and competitive UK market. Small, affordable city cars like these are some of the most popular on British roads, and competition is fierce for a share of the market.

Newer models of the Swift tend to focus on a balance between style, economy and practicality. You’ll find engine options ranging from 1.2 to 1.6 litres, which help keep both running and insurance costs low.

Suzuki Swift  Engine range  Typical insurance group*  Tax bracket 
SZ2 1.2 - 1.3 11 - 16 C - E
GL 1.3 16 E
GL Attitude 1.3 16 F
DDi S 1.3 14 C
GLX 1.3 - 1.5 16 - 20 E - F
SZ3 1.2 - 1.3 9 - 16 B - E
SZ-L 1.2 - 1.3 11 - 16 C - E
Attitude 1.2 - 1.3 9 - 16 C - E
SZ4 1.2 - 1.5 11 - 18 B - G
Sport 1.6 19 - 23 F - H
Sport SZ-R 1.6 19 F - H

Suzuki SX4

Suzuki's SX4 has been called a fusion of the SUV, 4x4 and supermini. It has models to fit each of these classifications, making it appealing to a range of potential markets, and practical to a range of buyers.

The problem with such a varied range is that insurance companies may treat each model differently, offering different premiums depending on which model you own. Car insurance companies use a range of information to calculate insurance premiums, from your personal details and driving history to the specifications of your car.

Suzuki SX4  Engine range  Typical insurance group*  Tax bracket 
SX4 Hatchback (06 on) 1.5 - 2.0 11 - 20 D - H
SX4 Saloon (09 - 11) 1.6 17 - 18 F - G
SX4 S-Cross (13 on) 1.6 13 - 20 B - E

Suzuki: did you know?

  • Founded - 1909 as Suzuki Loom Works
  • Headquarters - Hamamatsu, Japan
  • Products - Cars, motorbikes, engines, outboard motors, ATV’s
  • Owner - Volkswagen group (19.9%)

The multinational Japanese corporation Suzuki was the world’s tenth biggest car maker by production in 2011, and Japan’s second largest manufacturer of small cars and trucks.

The company was founded in 1909, and spent its first 30 years manufacturing weaving machines (with great success). It was 1937 before the company diversified and started its combustion engine project.

It was not until the collapse of the cotton market in 1951 that Suzuki refocused their efforts on transportation, particularly on motorbikes and engines to be attached to bicycles. 

In 1953, they scored the first of their many racing victories when the small 60cc “Diamond Free” won its class in the Mount Fuji Hill Climb.

The company did not produce its first car until 1955, and had no car division until 1961. Today, Suzuki are best known for their Hayabusa and GSX-R motorbikes, which have dominated race tracks around the world.
