Citroën Car Insurance groups

We insure plenty of Citroën models, so we’ve pulled together a list of the insurance groups popular Citroëns fall into. Of course we can’t mention every Citroën we insure, because this page would be a mile long! So even if your car isn’t on the list, we probably still insure it. Just get in touch and we’ll give you a quote for your specific model.

Citroën C1 Insurance Groups

Do you have a Citroën C1? The C1 was introduced in 2005 and is popular in the UK thanks to its fuel-efficient performance. Available with three or five doors, it can seat four people comfortably. Newer versions of the C1 come with features like power steering, heated seats and reversing camera. They also have a smartphone-friendly infotainment system with a video player as standard.

Older versions of the C1 are available with petrol and diesel engines, while the new C1 models only come with 1.0-litre or 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engines. If you don’t already have a C1, you might want to choose your engine carefully – it will affect your Citroën car insurance quote and the price you pay. The good news is that the C1’s balance of safety features and comfort features, combined with its smaller engine size, generally keeps it in the lower insurance groups.


Please be aware this is a guide only, insurers may group these cars differently.

Model Engine Size Insurance Group
C1 (05–14) 1.0–1.4 1–7
C1 (14 Onwards) 1.0–1.2 7–13


Citroën C3 Insurance Groups

The Citroën C3 – an entry-level family car that’s known for being compact and affordable to run. It was first introduced in 2002, and is a five-door supermini with decent interior space. The newest models offer improved safety with LED daytime-running lights and superior comfort with refined interiors and a state-of-the-art infotainment system. There are a number of add-ons available including metallic plates and a sat-nav system. Remember, these could push you into higher insurance groups.

If you don’t already have this car, there's a range of engine sizes available, from 1.1-litre to 1.6-litre, and you can have your choice of petrol or diesel. The bigger the engine size, the higher up the insurance groups you go.


Please be aware this is a guide only, insurers may group these cars differently.

Model Engine Size Insurance Group
C3 (02–10) 1.1–1.6 3–14
C3 (10–16) 1.0–1.6 5–21


Citroën C2 Insurance Groups

The C2 is Citroën’s successor to its previously popular Saxo model. A youth-oriented vehicle with a somewhat sporty feel, the C2 was released in the UK in September 2003.

If you don’t yet have one of these, we can tell you that the C2 models offer a range of engine sizes. The original models start at 1.1-litre and scale up to a maximum of 1.4-litre and both petrol and diesel engines are available. The range extended to a 1.6-litre engine with the C2 VTS. As the C2 make offers quite a number of different options for engine size, trim levels and add-ons, it spans a range of insurance groups. It's a good idea to get a quote from us to help you figure why C2 might work best for you.

Model Engine Size Insurance Group
C2 GT (03–04) 1.6 13

Citroën DS3 Insurance Groups

Say hello to the Citroën DS3, a compact car available as a three-door hatchback, or a two-door ‘Cabrio’ convertible. Citroën also released a faster model called the DS3 Racing in 2011, which had different features including enhanced breaks, steering, exhaust, suspension and more. These features are more expensive to repair, so the DS3 can sometimes be found in the middle-level insurance groups.

If you have something in the DSC model, with modern safety extras, like parking sensors and a reversing camera these options can significantly lower your insurance costs. Engines come in both petrol and diesel. The biggest engine of the range is 1.6-litre, but they go down to 1.2-litre, which will be in a lower insurance group.


Please be aware this is a guide only, insurers may group these cars differently.

Model Engine Size Insurance Group
DS3 Cabrio (13–15) 1.2–1.6 12–36
DS3 (10–15) 1.2–1.6 9–27
DS3 Racing (11–11) 1.6 32


Citroën C4 Insurance Groups

Do you need insurance for a Citroën C4? The C4 was released by Citroën as a successor to a previous model, the Xsara. It’s got lots of new technologies, such as a ‘lane departure warning system’, directional headlights, fixed steering wheel hub and more in the car. The C4 range has a three-door Coupé model, along with a five-door hatchback. A second generation of C4s was launched in 2010, but you can still find older models on the used market.

The Citroën C4 comes with either manual and automatic transmission, and diesel and petrol engines ranging from 1.4-litre to 2.0-litre. The C4’s larger engines and optional comfort add-ons can push it into mid-level insurance groups.

About Citroën

Early Beginnings

Citroën literally broke the mould of car manufacturing in France. Founded by French industrialist, André-Gustave Citroën in 1918, it was the first in Europe to adopt the mass production techniques of the United States' Henry Ford. Within a year of starting, the company was rolling out 100 cars per day. These cars were ready to drive straight out of the factory gates, which was unique at the time. And he was able to get them to market efficiently, through an innovative national dealership network. Ground-breaking innovation and marketing became the hallmark of Citroën. Citroën famously used the Eiffel Tower to advertise from 1925 to 1935, and is the only brand to have ever done so. It pioneered new automobile technologies, such as hydropneumatic self-levelling suspension systems, modern disc brakes and swivelling headlights. In 1969 it introduced The DS21, which was the first French car to feature electronic fuel injection. Two years later, it won the Car of the Year award with the Citroën GS – impressive stuff!

Present Day

Citroën went from strength to strength throughout the 20th century. Models like the Traction Avant continued to pioneer influential mass production techniques such as front-wheel drive and four-wheel independent suspension – both still in use today. Other models took the market by storm, like the sporty Visa GT and the Charleston 2CV, which was the best-selling 2CV of the 80s. Ahead of its time, Citroën began producing electric cars in the 90s, starting with the prototype Citela model. And it's still at the forefront of the electric car revolution. In 2012 it released the Citroën C-12, the first electric car to complete a round-the-world tour.

Now partly owned by the Dongfeng Motor Corporation, Citroën maintains an excellent reputation for innovative, reliable cars, both through its racing and mass-market automobiles. And it continues to stand out on the world stage of car manufacturing. It’s the only car manufacturer to have won three different official championships from the International Automobile Federation. In addition, it has won the European Car of the Year award three times, along with numerous international accolades for its commercial cars.
