How much does a Citroën cost to insure?

The cost to insure your Citroën depends on several factors just like with any vehicle:

Your age and experience: If you’re a young or inexperienced driver you might pay more for insurance, as you could be deemed a greater risk than seasoned motorists.

Your personal circumstances: Where you live, where you park your car, whether you use it for social or business and your annual mileage are among the factors considered by insurers.

Your car: The make, model and age of your car all affect what you might pay for cover. Whether the car’s been modified is also taken into account. This is because vehicles with such enhancements as chrome wheels, non-standard paintwork, tinted windows and engine upgrades tend to cost more to insure.

A hike in insurance costs for cars with modifications happens because they’ll either leave your car more prone to theft or make it more powerful to drive. These factors could increase the chance and cost of a claim.

It would be helpful to at least have some idea about how much it’ll cost to get car insurance for your Citroën. We’re able to help.

Citroën history and facts

Citroën was founded in 1919 by Andre Citroen, a French industrialist who made his name and fortune building military equipment in the First World War.

Over the course of the next century, Citroën has carved a niche in the French psyche, becoming as much a cultural champion as l’escargot and champagne.

Food and drink aside, the company was an early innovator in the motor trade. In 1954, Citroën designer Paul Magès came up with the first hydropneumatic suspension system.

The design was so impressive other manufacturers, including Rolls-Royce, Peugeot and Mercedes-Benz took out licences on it.

Innovations continued to flow out of the French manufacturer. In 1955, Citroën introduced the DS model, which was the first mass-produced car with modern brake discs. Just over a decade later, the firm introduced the first swivelling headlights, which provided greater vision on winding roads.

Despite these successes, Citroën made a number of dubious decisions in the 1960s, including buying lorry manufacturer Berliet in 1965, and Maserati 3 years later.

As the 1970s came along, Citroën, which had been part-owned by Fiat, was in decline. It pulled out of the US market due to regulatory conflicts.

But the ebb and flow of business saw the firm’s prospects rise again. In 2021 it announced it was upping production at its Thiruvallur factory in Tamil Nadu, India.

Citroën is very much the ‘every person’ car. Its range of automatic and manual transmission vehicles comprises the following types:

  • City cars
  • Electric and Hybrids
  • Family cars
  • Hatchbacks
  • Seven-seaters
  • SUVs

The car maker has models to suit all wallets. From a 3-door used 2014 - 2022 C1, priced anywhere between £2,585 - £12,990 , to the E-SpaceTourer Electric, which retails from £47,495.

The future of Citroën electric cars

The company has acknowledged the growing pressure on the motor trade to adapt to greener output. Its new C4 and Ë-C4 are a case in point. The range is 100% electric and costs from £21,950.

The C4 range isn’t the only one to have gone green. Among others is a fully-electric version of the SpaceTourer. The Ë-SpaceTourer has a benchmark range of up to 143 miles under Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure conditions.

The 6 to 8-seater people carrier can be up to 80% charged within 30 minutes at a 100kw rapid charging station.
