How much does an Audi cost to insure?

When it comes to getting car insurance for your Audi, the cost can vary depending on the model and specification of your car, as well as some of your personal details such as no-claims bonus, your age and driving history. This is similar to getting a BMW car insurance quote, as they're both considered to be more luxurious cars to own, and can be more expensive to insure.

Here are some of the average prices to insure some of the most popular Audi models:

Model Average price1
Audi A1 Sport TFSI (125)
£839
Audi A3 Sport TDI (150)
£939
Audi A4 S Line TDI
£1,066
Audi Q7 S Line Quattro TDI (272) 
£1,391
Audi A1 Sport TDI (116)
£908

What affects the price of car insurance?

There are a number of factors that can affect the price that you pay for your car insurance, these include:

  • Your driving history
  • How old you are
  • The type of car you drive
  • Where you live
  • Your annual mileage

Your driving history includes things like accidents, claims or convictions and they all contribute to how much you pay for your insurance. If you've recently had an accident and made a claim, it's likely to affect how much you pay for your policy.

How old you are can also impact the cost of your policy. Older drivers are often seen as more experienced and less likely to have an accident, compared to young drivers who are seen as less experienced and more likely to be involved in an accident.

The type of car you drive will also impact your insurance cost. In this case, Audis are in insurance groups 13-50 which covers a big range. The larger and more expensive your car is, the higher the insurance is likely to be. This is because spare parts and repairs are more expensive.

Where you live also has an affect on your insurance price. If you live somewhere quiet in the countryside, your insurance is likely to be cheaper than someone who lives in a city where crime and theft is higher.

Your annual mileage will also tell your insurer how much time you spend on the road. According to a lot of insurance providers, if you're doing more miles, you're more likely to be involved in an accident. Our data shows that the average annual mileage for customers is 6,5002.

How can I save on Audi car insurance?

How much you pay for car insurance for your Audi depends on a lot of factors mentioned above, but there are things you can do to help bring down the cost of your policy:

  • Pay annually for your policy
  • Increasing your voluntary excess
  • Build your no-claims bonus (NCB)
  • Adding a named driver
  • Consider your level of cover
  • Compare quotes and buy early

If you pay annually for your policy, you'll end up paying less for your insurance. If you decide to pay monthly for your insurance, you could end up paying up to 20% more2. This is usually down to the interest that insurers charge.

Increasing your voluntary excess means you're willing to pay more towards any claims you make, which in turn should make your premium cheaper.

Build your no-claims bonus (NCB). Each year that passes without you making a claim helps improve your no-claims bonus. This in turn means that your insurer will offer discounts for each year of no-claims that you have. Don't forget you can protect your NCB on your policy as well, so if you need to claim, it won't affect your NCB

Adding a named driver to your policy with a good NCB and no convictions can help reduce the cost of your policy.

Consider your level of cover. People often think that comprehensive insurance is going to be the most expensive, so they decide to go for third-party only to try and save money. This isn't the case, with comprehensive policies often coming in cheaper than third party policies.

Compare quotes and buy early to give yourself the best chance of saving money on your car insurance. The best time to buy your car insurance is 25 days2 before your renewal date.

What insurance can I get for my Audi?

When you buy car insurance, you can choose from 3 levels of cover which include:

  • Third-party only
  • Third-party fire and theft
  • Comprehensive
  • Third-party only is the minimum legal requirement if you want to drive on the roads in the UK.
  • Third-party, fire and theft is the same as third party only, but it'll also cover you for repair costs if your car is stolen.
  • Comprehensive car insurance is the top level of protection when it comes to car insurance. Not only does it cover you and your car, it'll also cover other people and their property for any damage caused.

What optional extras can I get with my Audi car insurance?

All car insurance policies come with a selection of optional extras for you to choose from. Here are some of the most popular choices:

Windscreen cover will help replace the windscreen on your car, as well as repair any cracks or chips. Some policies will charge an excess for this, so be sure to check with your insurer.

Breakdown cover will give you assistance at the roadside if your car breaks down. You can often get different levels of cover through providers, so it's just a case of picking the one that's right for you.

Motor legal protection will cover you against the costs of things such as solicitor fees, travel costs and treatment you need after an accident that wasn't your fault. It's also often referred to as legal expenses cover.

Courtesy car cover will provide you with a car while repairs are taking place to your vehicle.

Personal accident cover protects you or your family financially if you're involved in an accident.

History of Audi

August Horch, one of Germany's pioneering personalities automobile engineers, was the founder of Audi.

In 1899 he started his own business A. Horch & Cie. in Cologne before moving to Zwickau. Following disagreement with the board, Horch left in 1909 and immediately established a second car company in Zwickau.

However, because his surname Horch was already in use by his former company and protected by trademark, he chose its Latin translation for the new company. So ‘horch’ – or ‘hark’ – became ‘audi’ .

Admittedly a bit of a mouthful, Audi Automobilwerke GmbH, Zwickau began trading in April 1910.

The first-generation Audi 80 (B1 series) was launched in 1972. By the time production of this generation ceased, more than a million cars had been built.

The 1970s was a defining period for Audi. 1974 saw the appointment of Ferdinand Piëch as Head of Technical Development. During the ‘Piëch era’ Audi became synonymous with innovative car manufacture. The five-cylinder engine (1976), turbocharging (1979) and quattro four-wheel drive (1980) stand as testimony to this innovative spirit.

The Audi Quattro made its debut in March 1980 at the Geneva Motor Show. The expression ‘Vorsprung durch Technik’ which means ‘progress through technology' was the phrase used in every Audi TV advert at this time. It certainly applied to the Audi Quattro, with a permanent four-wheel drive that made it ideal for driving on different types of road surfaces in both winter and summer.

Over 10 million cars with the Quattro drive have been produced since then. Audi has always offered the Quattro drive in different versions, customised for each model.

Audi is also making significant progress with electric car production, with what they call electromobility. They now have the e-tron GT quattro, the RS e-tron GT, the Q4 e-tron and Q4 Sportback e-tron available as part of their range of electric cars.

 

Throughout their history, Audi have often been grouped together with the likes of Mercedes-Benz and BMW in terms of the quality of cars that they produce, and this is still the case today.
