Insurance for These Luxury Cars

In total, there are 50 car insurance groups. The cars are divided by their categories, e.g.: hatchback, sedan, SUV, sports cars, etc.

If a car’s group number is higher, its insurance would also be great. So, the sports cars fall under the top group category.

How the Make and Model of a Car Affect Its Insurance

In total Porsche has ten various car models that fall under group 50 whereas Mercedes has a total of 22 models. Multiple versions of a particular model fall under the same group.

The insurance groups also consider the cost of the car; its repair cost, its spare parts price, etc. before calculating the premium. Some insurance companies also take care of the fact that if your vehicle has the required security features then only they will complete the process of insurance. So, make sure that your grand car has the core set of safety features.

What Should One Keep in Mind Before Getting That Expensive Car Insured

1. Make sure that your insurance plan covers the coverage under all the circumstances

2. Get quotes from different insurance companies and then choose the best insurance plan

3. Since you would be opting insurance for a lost car, make sure that you go for money back plan as that will be much secure
