A typical Mazda policy includes a number of perks such as 90-day EU cover, windscreen cover and a free courtesy car. Its also offers a multi-car discount if you insure more than one vehicle, and will even pay your previous insurer's cancellation fee if you switch.

What insurance group is a Mazda RX-8? 

The RX8 is a stylish sports car that first appeared on the market in 2002. 

After a decade of production, the popular four-door was discontinued in 2012, but it's still a favourite of British Mazda drivers. 

Despite its popularity, the RX-8 does have a reputation for having a thirsty engine with high emissions. It's also notorious for issues such as fuel leakage and suspension problems - particularly in earlier models. 

Most RX-8s have a 1.3-litre engine. However, the rotary engine allows it to generate 231 bhp. This, coupled with the aforementioned issues, sees this the Mazda RX-8 insurance group shoot up into the 27 to 31 range. 

The PZ model is even higher again in category 34, despite having improved handling and better control than previous versions. 

Bear in mind that groups can change. But you can use our car insurance group checker to be sure. 

How do I get cover for the MX-5? 

Voted What Car's Best Convertible in the 2018 Car of the Year Awards, the MX-5 is a lightweight, two-seater roadster. 

The nimble ride has earned its position as the best-selling two-seater sports car in history, with over 900,000 units sold as of 2018 - a Guinness World Record!

Can I get quotes for the Mazda 3? 

Mazda's stylish contribution to the family car market, the Mazda 3 is the successor of the 323. 

Introduced in 2003, it brought an end to the 40-year run of the 323, and became Mazda's fastest-selling car when it reached the milestone of four million units in 2014. 

Most models sit between insurance groups 16 and 18, with the 1.5-litre engines at the low end, and the 2.0 on the high end.

The 1.5 SE clocks in at 13, while the 2009 to 2013 versions of the 1.6 can also be as low as 13. However, the 2004 to 2008 models can be found as low as category 9. 

On the other end of the scale, the Mazda 3 Sport insurance group is considerably higher. 

In fact, the 2.2d Sport, 2.2d SE-L and 2.2d SE Nav versions are all rated in category 24, while the older 2.3T MPS model is way up in category 34 – the same group as the Alfa Romeo Spider. 

Policies for the Mazda 5 

Featuring sliding rear doors, the Mazda 5 is considered a compact multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) with varying capacity to seat as many as seven passengers. 

A Mazda staple for almost 20 years, the spacious people carrier was produced from 1999 to 2018, and is available in both petrol and diesel. 

For most of the 2.0-litre versions, the Mazda 5 insurance group is typically between 14 and 18. However, older Sport editions are understandably higher, breaking into 20 to 21 territory. 

Later versions include additional safety features – such as electronic stability control and traction control - which lowers the standard 1.8 TS model from 14 down to a category 12.
