Compare car insurance quotes for your Renault

How much does a Renault cost to insure?

From the all-electric Zoe to the family friendly Captur, whichever Renault you drive you can find the right insurance for you with Confused.com.

Renault car insurance costs vary depending on several factors including:

  • How old the car is
  • How valuable it is
  • Its engine power
  • The specific trim you choose

This is because insurers rank vehicles into groups depending on their cost and performance. Faster cars with more powerful engines sit in a higher insurance group than cars with smaller engines.

For example, the Renault Clio Play is in insurance groups 3-12 and has an average cost of £484*. The Renault Megane Sport Cup (250) Coupe, which is in a much higher insurance group (34-40), comes in at an average of £822*.

Your Renault car insurance costs also depend on factors that are specific to you. This includes:

  • Where you live
  • Your driving history
  • Your age and occupation
  • Whether you plan on using the car for work or personal use

Renault Zoé

The Renault Zoe is an all-electric compact supermini that won several awards from Parkers, AutoExpress and WhatCar? in 2021.

Being 100% electric, the Zoe is a great car for regular city driving. But it does boast an electric range of 239 miles, so it can go the distance if you're looking to go on a road trip. It's also a good alternative to petrol equivalents like the Renault Clio or a VW Polo.

You can expect to pay £394* a year in insurance (based on a ZOE i GT Line Rapid Charge R135 ). The starting price for a Zoe E-Tech Electric is £29,995.

Renault Clio

The Renault Clio was launched in 1990 and this versatile small car didn’t take long to make its mark. It earned the European Car of the Year Award the year after its launch. The Clio’s appeal was that it was designed to be compact but spacious at the same time.

The second-generation Clio arrived in 1998, with more up-to-date safety technology built in. Renault continued to build on a winning formula. In 2005, the third-generation Clio arrived with a longer shape and more cabin space. It's also now available as a hybrid.

The starting price for a Renault Clio is £18,895 or £21,695 for the Clio E-Tech hybrid.

Insurance costs on a Renault Clio vary according to the exact model you drive. As an example, the Clio Play has an average premium of £484*. The hybrid versions of this model are likely to be more expensive to insure due to needing specialist parts. Whereas the regular Clio's insurance group ranges from 3-16, the E-Tech hybrid starts at insurance group 12.

Renault Megane

The successor to the Renault 19, the Megane was launched in 1995. This small family car rivals the Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra. It went into its fourth generation in 2016. In 2020, Renault added a plug-in hybrid version of the Megane.

But all new Renault Meganes are now 100% electric, boasting up to 280 miles on a single charge. Renault also claims you can regain up to 186 miles within 30 minutes of charging.

There are several different versions of the Megane for you to choose from. Your car insurance price is likely to change depending on the engine and extras added to a particular model. You can buy the all-electric Megane from £35,995.

For example, the average insurance cost on the Megane Dynamique TomTom DCI (110) is £534*.

Renault Captur

A relatively-newer Renault model, the Captur was designed as a sub-compact crossover SUV. It made its debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

The Captur was named ‘Best Small SUV of the Year 2021’ by Auto Express, praising its space and flexibility.

Other awards for the Captur include AutoTrader's ‘Best Car for City Drivers 2021’ and CarBuyer's ‘Best Small Family Car 2021’.

Today prices for a Renault Captur start at £22,295. You can also buy a hybrid version - the Captur E-Tech - from £25,195.

The insurance costs you can expect to pay for a Renault Captur depend on the model you choose to buy. As an example, the Captur Signature X NAV Energy TCE S/S 90 has an average premium of £306*.

Renault Kadjar

The Renault Kadjar is the big brother to Renault’s successful supermini-based Captur model. Positioned between the Captur and the bigger Renault Koleos, the Kadjar was unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, with sales starting in Europe later that year.

Renault discontinued the Kadjar in 2022, so you're only able to buy one second-hand. You should be able to pick one up for around £10,000.

Kadjar models sit in insurance groups 14-22, so your insurance costs could vary depending on the specific trim you go for. For example, the average price for the Renault Kadjar Dynamique NAV DCI 110 is £406*.

History and facts about Renault

Still proudly bearing the name of its founders, Renault dates back to 1898 when brothers Louis, Marcel, and Fernand Renault established the company in France.

The initial driving force was Louis Renault, a young mechanics enthusiast, who decided to build his own car – the Renault ‘voiturette’ Type A.

On Christmas Eve 1898, he drove it up the Rue Lepic in Montmartre, the steepest road in Paris. The short but steep journey was a success – orders for the car soon followed and the brand was born.

Renault continued to develop ideas and grow its business but the major shift in the 1940s was when the company was nationalized after World War II, following the death of Louis Renault. The company only returned to private ownership in the 1990s.

In 2006, Fernando Alonso won the World Championship title for the second consecutive year at the wheel of a Renault. And in 2005 and 2006, the Renault F1 Team won the Manufacturers' World Championship title.

In 2012 the company launched the Renault Zoe, which become the best-selling electric vehicle in Europe in 2017. In addition, Renault introduced the EZ GO concept car, an autonomous car designed for shared urban mobility.

In late 2022, Renault announced that it would create a brand-new EV-centric manufacturer called Ampere. The company hopes to produce 1 million EV cars for Renault by 2031.
