How much does it cost to insure an Audi?

The model and age of your Audi will influence what you pay for car insurance. Because Audis are luxury vehicles with high manufacturer-suggested retail prices (MSRPs), they typically are expensive to insure. Additionally, Audis are German cars, so they may require specialty repairs following covered damage, further driving up the cost of coverage. On the other hand, many newer Audis have advanced safety features that may help minimize crashes and theft, which could improve your rate.

The average cost of car insurance in the U.S. is $2,314 per year for full coverage and $644 per year for minimum coverage. To analyze average Audi rates, Bankrate's insurance editorial team looked at average rates for the Audi Q5. The average cost of coverage for this model is $2,507 per year for full coverage and $602 per year for minimum coverage. Some of the key factors that influence Audi rates include:

  • Price of parts: Audi is a foreign-made luxury brand, and as such, its parts are likely to be more expensive than mid-range cars. Foreign parts may also be more difficult to source. These factors may contribute to the Audi's high average cost of full coverage insurance.
  • Safety features: The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) chose five Audi models for its “Top Safety Pick” awards in 2024. Safety features like front crash protection, blind spot detection and lane departure prevention are standard features in most newer Audi models. These safety features could help lessen the risk of accidents, which may lower the cost of your insurance.

Your personal rating factors will also play a role in your cost of car insurance. Car insurance companies use rating factors like your ZIP code, annual mileage and driving history to determine how risky you are to insure. In most states, carriers can also consider your age, gender and credit history.

Cheapest car insurance companies for an Audi

Other car insurance coverage for Audis

Full coverage car insurance typically includes comprehensive and collision coverage. However, you may want to add endorsements to your policy for more robust coverage. Endorsements will raise your cost of coverage but also provide more financial protection for your vehicle. Add-on options will vary by carrier, but some common options include:

  • Gap insurance: Including gap insurance (guaranteed asset protection coverage) on your audi insurance policy may help pay for the difference between the cash value of your car and what you owe on a loan if it is totaled or stolen. Without this coverage, your insurance payout may be less than the amount you owe.
  • Rental car reimbursement: If you are in an accident that requires repairs to your vehicle, this coverage provides reimbursement for you to rent a car while your own is in the shop. Although there may be limits to this coverage, it should cover at least some of the cost of your rental car, minimizing your out-of-pocket expenses.
  • Uninsured and underinsured motorist: In some but not all states, this coverage is mandatory. It can help pay for damage if you are in an accident with one of the roughly 14 percent of motorists who drive illegally without insurance, or who do not have enough insurance to cover damage. This coverage may also come into play if you are the victim of a hit-and-run accident.

If you aren't sure what coverage types you want for your Audi, working with a licensed insurance agent may be beneficial.

Methodology

Bankrate utilizes Quadrant Information Services to analyze April 2024 rates for all ZIP codes and carriers in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. Rates are weighted based on the population density in each geographic region. Quoted rates are based on a single, 40-year-old male and female driver with a clean driving record, good credit and the following full coverage limits:

  • $100,000 bodily injury liability per person
  • $300,000 bodily injury liability per accident
  • $50,000 property damage liability per accident
  • $100,000 uninsured motorist bodily injury per person
  • $300,000 uninsured motorist bodily injury per accident
  • $500 collision deductible
  • $500 comprehensive deductible

To determine minimum coverage limits, Bankrate used minimum coverage that meets each state’s requirements. Our base profile drivers own a 2021 Toyota Camry, commute five days a week and drive 12,000 miles annually. 

These are sample rates and should only be used for comparative purposes. 

Model: To determine cost by vehicle type, we evaluated our base profile with the following vehicles applied: Audi Q5 and Toyota Camry (base).
