Car insurance groups for BMW

BMW have an unsurpassed reputation for quality and innovation and are now perhaps the most well known luxury car brand worldwide.

As you might expect, BMW cars are not the cheapest to insure with the UK insurance group of 3-series BMW 318 starting at Group 21, rising to Group 33/34 for BMW 330i. The most powerful BMWs like BMW M3 and BMW M5 approach the UKs highest insurance group (at Group 43 45) making them amongst the most expensive cars to insure. The BMW 6-Series convertibles (645i and 650i) at Insurance Group 49/50 are similarly costly to insure.

BMW are well known for their sports cars including M-series saloons and coupes including the sought-after BMW Z4 and its predecessor the BMW Z3. Unfortunately, luxury comes at a price with insurance groups for a 2002 BMW Z3 Roadster 1.8 starting at Group 29, rising to Group 46 for the new BMW Z4 M Coupe. Popular BMW diesel cars in the UK based on their lower CO2 emissions include the 3-series BMW 320d, 325d and 330d, as well as the 5-Series BMW 525d and 530d.

Insurance categories for these cars are shown in the table below. Insurance bands are given alongside specifications for each model and derivative. BMW insurance ratings were correct at the time of publication, but may change as new models are introduced.
