Volvo car insurance

Volvo is Sweden’s most famous car manufacturer, and is known for making some of the safest cars on the road.

Established in 1927 by Assar Gabrielsson and Gustav Larson, their goal was to produce a car able to stand up to the rigours of Sweden’s rough roads and cold temperatures.

Now a long way removed from their old boxy designs, Volvos are at the forefront of bold new styling, cutting-edge technology and safety features.

Below we’ve pulled together information on past and present Volvo 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.

Volvo C30

The Volvo C30 is a sporty-looking hatchback coupe, manufactured between 2006 and 2013. Volvo may have developed the C30 in order to help remove its image as a car for more mature drivers and target a younger audience.

The Volvo C30 could cost you around £790* to insure yearly if you’re aged 26 - 30. But if you’re aged 56-60, your yearly premium could be close to £414*.
