Volkswagen Insurance

Established in 1937, Volkswagen is a brand which has become synonymous with precision engineering, high-quality-production vehicles and iconic car status – with thanks to models like the Beetle, Golf and Polo.

Volkswagen has designed two of the most iconic vehicles in history – the Beetle and Campervan. Both of these continue to enjoy strong sales today. It also produces the Golf – arguably a modern classic – which has been in production since the 1970s.

As with most manufacturers, Volkswagen has released electric versions of its vehicles – the e-UP! and the e-Golf – and boasts that its cars can travel up to 118 miles between charges. 

Below we’ve pulled together information on past and present Volkswagen models. This also includes an average car insurance price for each car across different age groups. These prices are an average based on all specifications of that model, and all our customer quotes from 1/1/17 – 30/06/17. This includes different locations, driving background and other factors. Your own quote could be cheaper or more expensive depending on your personal circumstances.

Read our review Volkswagen Beetle 1938 - present

The VW Beetle is undoubtedly one of the most iconic cars in automotive history. It's instantly recognisable, and a classic to many.

Replacement parts could be hard to come by for the older Beetle model. This could affect its car insurance group, which in turn could affect your car insurance premium.

If you’re between 26 and 35 years old, you could get insurance for £869* based on previous quotes.

Read our review Volkswagen Golf 1974 - present

With an array of body types available, it’s no wonder that the Golf is so versatile. The Golf Hatchback is a great small family car. Spacious yet compact, it comes with a choice of three or five doors.

The Golf GTI is an iconic hot hatch and is famous for its long history of good performance. It can reach 0-62mph in 6.5 seconds. 

With many more types available, there really is something for everyone in the Golf range.

The average insurance price for the Golf is around £885* if you’re 31 - 45 years old.

Volkswagen Jetta 1979 - present

The Jetta was originally conceived as a Golf with a boot, changing it from a hatchback to saloon. The first Jetta rolled off the production line in 1979. Over the years it's had a few different names, like the Bora, also the Fox and the Atlantic.

Drivers aged between 31 and 45 could get insurance for around £811*, based on previous quotes.

Read our review Volkswagen Passat 1973 - present

Now in its eighth generation, the Passat has secured its place in the high-end family car market. And it’s giving the likes of the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class a serious run for their money.

The Passat mainly comes in diesel form; however, there’s an option for a petrol-hybrid version of the car.  

If you’re between 51 and 60, you could be looking at insurance premiums of £676*. However, younger drivers won’t have such a good price, with insurance being on average £1455* for 21 – 30 year olds.

Read our review Volkswagen Polo 1975 - present

The Polo has grown up, and the sixth-generation is putting more pressure on rivals such as the Ford Fiesta and Vauxhall Corsa. There’s now a splash of colour in the interior of the car, perhaps trying the appeal to a younger audience.  

There’s a huge range of models and engines, meaning the insurance group will vary for each model.

Previous quotes have shown that if you’re aged 26 – 30, you could get insurance for around £979*.

Specification (09 - 17) Engine Size Typical Insurance Group** Tax Band**
Standard Trim 1.2 9 A
S 1.0 - 2.0 3 - 7 B - F

Volkswagen Scirocco 1974 - 1992; 2008 - present

Older models of the Scirocco have become something of a cult car, with owners’ clubs spreading the breadth of the UK. Some models could now even be considered a classic car due to their age. 

Whether you have one of the original models or a newer one from the current range, you'll need a car insurance policy to be able to drive your Scirocco on UK roads.

On average, 31-35 year olds could get insurance for £727*.

Volkswagen Sharan 1995 - present

The Sharan has been in production for close to 20 years now. It shares its platform with the SEAT Alhambra, and so far has gone through 3 facelifts.

The Sharan is a moderately sized car in terms of engine size and has a low to mid-range car insurance group. With a lot of insurance companies, it's typical that the higher the group, the higher the insurance premium.

Drivers aged between 51 and 55 could get insurance for around £751*.

Read our review Volkswagen Tiguan 2007 - present

The new Tiguan offers more space, efficiency and class than the older version. Its competitors are no longer the same as the Nissan Qashqai – it’s going for a more premium market, putting itself against the likes of the BMW X1. 

With an engine range from 1.4-litre petrol to a 2-litre twin-turbo diesel, you can get some power from this car. The standard trim only comes with front wheel-drive – you’ll have to splash a bit of extra cash if you want four-wheel drive. 

Based on previous quotes, insurance could be quite cheap: on average 31 – 55 year olds have got premiums for around £559*.

Read our review Volkswagen Touareg 2002 - present

Starting at just over £43k new, this isn't a cheap car. However, its main competitors are the Porsche Cayenne and the Audi Q7 – which are significantly more expensive – making this car the more affordable of the three.

That's where the affordability ends though. With a sizeable engine, insurance groups at the top of the spectrum, and each model sitting in the highest five tax bands, this isn't likely to be a cheap car to insure.

The insurance on this car certainly won’t be cheap if you’re a young driver, with the average price for 21 – 30 year olds being £1,515*.

Read our review Volkswagen Touran 2003 - present

The Touran has been in production for 10 years, and is the smaller sibling to the Sharan. Insurance-wise, the Touran isn't likely to be too costly. The insurance groups are fairly low, and the engine size doesn't go higher than a 2.0l.

The average price for insurance for the Touran is around £793* if you’re aged between 31 and 45. 

Specification (15 onwards) Engine Size Typical Insurance Group** Tax Band**

Read our review Volkswagen Up 2011 - present

The Volkswagen up! is an ideal first car for a new driver. It's small, has a low car insurance group, and having a car with a smaller engine could help to keep prices down.

There’s also the option of an all-electric version – cleverly called the e-up! – which has the same acceleration as the more basic models of the up!

Young drivers between 17 and 30 could get insurance for the up! for around £852*.

Move Up 1.0 1 - 3 A - F
