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

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.
