Renault car insurance

Compare car insurance quotes for your Renault

How much does a Renault cost to insure?

Renault car insurance costs will vary, depending on the age, value and engine power of the model you choose.

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

So, the Renault Clio will typically be in a lower insurance group than the Renault Captur. This is because it's a slightly bigger car. In turn, the Captur will be in a lower insurance group than the speedy Renault Megane RS.

As an example, the Renault Clio Play is in insurance Group 3 and has an average cost of £625*. The Renault Megane Sport Cup (250) Coupe, which is in a much higher insurance group (35-37), comes in at an average of £1,937*.

Essentially, if you want a car that's capable of driving at higher speeds, you can expect higher insurance costs.

As well as various design specs and engine power, your Renault car insurance costs will also depend on other factors that are specific to you. This includes where you live, your driving history and how old you are.

Renault Zoé

The Zoé is a compact supermini and 100% electric.

The Renault Zoé is a great car for regular city driving. It's also a good alternative to petrol equivalents like the Renault Clio (see below) or a VW Polo.

The starting price for a Zoé E-Tech Electric is £30,495. You can expect to pay £487* a year in insurance (based on a Zoé EV 1 GT Line R135).

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 in 1991.

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 £18,795 or £21,395 for a hybrid version.

Insurance costs on a Renault Clio will vary according to the exact model you drive. As an example, the Clio Play has an average premium of £625*.

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 will now be electric. At the time of writing, interested drivers were being invited to join a priority list.

There are several different versions of the Megane. Your car insurance price will change depending on the engine and extras added to a particular model.

As an example, the average premium on the Megane Dynamique TomTom DCI (110) is £880*.

Renault Captur

A 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 £22,195.

The insurance premium you will pay for a Renault Captur will 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 £372*.

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.

The starting price for a Renault Kadjar is £26,295.

The amount you could expect to pay to insure your Kadjar will depend on the model you choose. For example, the average premium for the Renault Kadjar Dynamique NAV DCI 110 is £502*.

History and facts about Renault

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