Car Insurance Groups are designed to help insurance companies from assessing the cost risk involved in insuring you on a particular car. When you look up the insurance group for cars you will be able to understand the true cost that a vehicle might demand over it's lifetime. For example, should you buy a car in a low insurance group (i.e. car insurance group 1 - 4) you can be fairly confident that the parts and labour involed in fixing these vehicles are cheaper than a car in say car insurance group 18 - 20.

There are 20 car insurance groups in total. Group 1 contains the cheapest cars to insure because the insurer percieves this car to have less likelyhood of being involved in an accident, or being cheaper to fix. Group 20 is the highest car insurance group because car insurers percieve this to be the most expensive to fix or the most likely to be involved in an accident.
