How much does a Jaguar cost to insure?
Insuring a Jaguar, especially a new or classic model, can be more expensive than a standard hatchback. But you’d be surprised how affordable annual car insurance can be.
Let's look at the E-Pace - Jaguar’s first compact SUV. It's designed to suit daily driving in the city as well as longer journeys, where comfort is very much welcomed.
When it comes to insurance, the average cost to insure the E-Pace varies because of the different trim levels and specs available. To give you an idea though, the average insurance cost for the E-Pace R-Dynamic HSE D180 AWD is £467*.
The F-Pace is the E-Pace’s big brother. There’s plenty of room for each passenger, with a warehouse of storage space to boot. This makes it a good choice if you have older children who want to spread out, or you’re driving a long way.
The popular F-Pace R-Sport 180 AWD costs around £475* a year to insure, but again the different trims and styles available can impact significantly on your insurance costs.
Not everyone wants a SUV. For some discerning drivers the point of having a Jag is to pamper yourself, and let the kids ride to school in a bus, or walk.
This brings us to the Jaguar XE, a compact executive model that followed on from the 2009 model year X-Type. As an example, the XE R-Sport 180 has an average insurance price of £594*.
Jaguar’s third category of cars is the sports models, of which the F-Type is kingpin. The average cost to insure a zippy 2-door F-Type is a tad higher than that for the more family-orientated SUV range. The typical F-Type Coupe insurance cost is £630*.
You might be wondering what the average cost of insuring a classic E-Type would be. In fact, it’s just £176* a year. Why? Well, most of the time it’ll likely be either polished within an inch of its life or under dust sheets. Other popular classic Jaguar models we compare quotes on include Jaguar Sovereign, XJ-S, XJ6, Jaguar 3.4, XJ and XJ8.

Jaguar history and facts
Jaguar was founded in 1922 as the Swallow Sidecar Company, originally manufacturing motorcycle sidecars. A decade late it screwed the first big cat emblem on the front of its first car and an icon was born. The 1935 SS Jaguar 2.5l saloon was a sleek, low-slung vehicle that captured the mood of the times.
Over the years Jaguar moved from providing cars for day-to-day driving to entering the racing world. In the 1950s it developed first the C-Type, which won Le Mans in 1951 and 1953.
The D-type with its signature tail fin was introduced in 1954, but it was probably the E-Type that put Jaguar on the map. In the 1960s everyone from Frank Sinatra to Peter Sellers had one. It smoothly manoeuvred itself into the swinging sixties, becoming as much an icon of the age as the Beatles or mini skirts.
Despite the celebrity-pull, Jaguar wobbled in the middle years of the 20th Century, as the company’s director of design Ian Callum said:
“Jaguar in the 1950s and 1960s was a really cool, modern brand. It wasn’t very consistent, and the cars didn’t bear a strong family resemblance, but the fundamental brand values – the sense of excitement, the purity – drove everything.”
Since the 1960s Jaguar has maintained a high profile, introducing new models and reaping the benefit classic models appearing in the likes of television series such as Morse. The firm shifted up a gear in the 21st Century with fresh impetus in the realm of zero-emission models and has been active the Formula-E arena.
- Before a Jaguar is painted it’s brushed with ionised emu feathers, as paint area manager Nigel Williams says: “Emu feathers can be easily charged with static electricity, which makes them great for picking up dust. We wouldn’t use them if they didn’t work so well, because – to be honest – they're very expensive.”
- Jaguar’s iconic emblem is known as The Leaper. The front-on embossed face is known as The Grinner.
In 2021, Jaguar announced that it plans to make all of its new cars fully electric by 2025. The company has also partnered with EV charging network Plugsurfing to provide customers with access to 300,000 charging points across 26 countries.
