Compare Mitsubishi insurance with

Japan’s 6th biggest car manufacturer has a strong following in the UK, thanks in large part to the success of its Evo rally cars in the early 2000s. 

Mitsubishi's popularity has been further bolstered by its reputation for reasonably priced, well-built vehicles that contain plenty of kit.

Mitsubishi insurance groups

To help you understand how your quote is calculated, we've split Mitsubishis by model and listed their likely insurance group.

Generally, the lower the number, the cheaper the quote, but other factors are taken into consideration, like your address, driving history and age.

Mitsubishi ASX

The ASX is part of Mitsubishi’s plan to reposition itself as a manufacturer of smaller, more efficient cars in contrast to its history of producing successful large SUVs such as the Mitsubishi Outlander.

This model is available in either 2 or 4-wheel-drive and comes with a choice of three engine sizes – 1.6l, 1.8l and 2.2l.

Generally speaking, the smaller the engine, the lower insurers tend to place it in terms of insurance grouping. The size of the engine can also have an impact on the car’s CO2 emissions, so the large 2.2l ASX models are in the higher tax bracket, G.

Specification Engine Capacity Insurance Group* Tax Bracket Range
Attivo 1.6 13 E
Black 1.6 - 1.8 14 - 20 E - F
 1.6  13 E
3  1.6 - 2.2  13 - 20 E - G
4  1.6 - 2.2  14 - 20 E - G

Mitsubishi Colt

The most recent car to be fitted with the Mitsubishi Colt badge was a supermini car produced between 2002 and 2012. Mitsubishi replaced the Colt in 2012 with their new generation of compact cars using the Mirage name. However the Colt badge has been used on a variety of different cars since the early-sixties.

Generally speaking, the smaller the Colt's engine, the lower the insurance group it gets placed in. So if you're looking for cheaper premiums, you may want to consider one of the many 1.1 litre Colt models for its lower grouping and relatively low tax bracket.

The highest grouping of the Colts featured in this table is the Ralliart edition. When you take a look at the Ralliart’s extra features, which include variable valve timing and a turbocharger for extra power, this is to be expected.

Mitsubishi Lancer

Since its introduction in 1973, over six million Lancers have been sold worldwide. Although it was initially intended for release to Japanese markets only, import demand led to the Evolution series being sold in Europe from 1998 onwards.

When it comes to insurance, it’s important to differentiate the standard Mitsubishi Lancers from their racier, evolution counterparts. Insurance companies tend to allocate vehicles a group between 1 and 50, and you can see from the table below that while Evolution models reach the forties, a Lancer saloon’s grouping could be as low as thirteen.

To put this into context, some Porsche Boxster variants are grouped in the forties, while group 13 includes the likes of the Ford Fiesta and Citreon Saxo. Generally, the higher the group any vehicle is given, the more costly it could be to insure.

Read our review Mitsubishi Outlander

The third and current generation of the Outlander went on sale in Europe in 2012. Its spacious design (591 litres with the rear seats folded) and optional 7 seats make it a viable option for large families.

Its four wheel drive system also makes it great for those looking to get off the beaten track. This current Outlander comes with a 2.2 litre turbo diesel engine and offers greatly improved fuel efficiency compared to previous models. The 2013 Outlander now offers best in class fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions.

This could not only reduce the day-to-day running costs of the car, it will also mean a reduced tax bill. In fact, all of the Outlander models that fall into tax band E are the latest, third generation.

Read our review Mitsubishi Shogun

While many modern SUVs, such as the Mitsubishi Outlander, have tended to cater towards city life, the Shogun remains Mitsubishi’s vehicle of choice for those looking to go off-road. To date, the Shogun is the most successful vehicle in the Dakar rally for its class. Off-road pedigree doesn’t come much better than that!

When it comes to insurance, the Shogun suffers from the same factors as most SUVs: it is large, powerful and likely to be used for more than trips to the shops. Its typical insurance groups reflect this. Furthermore, its 3.2 litre engine has high CO2 emissions. This means some Mitsubishi Shoguns are allocated to tax grouping M – the most expensive there is.
