Information about indicative premium ranges and comparisons

When we display the indicative Comprehensive premium range for a car make and model, or offer a comparison of how a model’s annual premium compares to Youi premiums for all models for that car brand, we adopt some important guidelines:

  • The information displayed is based on Youi internal data for Comprehensive policies sold for the make and model between 30 Nov 2022 and 31 May 2023.
  • To improve how useful our data is, we only calculate our average comparisons on models where Youi data is available on at least 10 sold Comprehensive policies for that model.
  • As you would expect, we get some higher or lower premiums based on different risk ratings, so the indicative range does not represent all Youi customers. 80% of applicable Comprehensive car premiums purchased by our customers fell within or below the indicative premium range shown.
  • Premiums and offers to insure are subject to rating & underwriting, and your own individual circumstances.

Interesting facts about Kia

Kia has a global partnership with The Ocean Cleanup

The Ocean Cleanup supplies usable collected plastic to Kia to be recycled, while Kia supplies electric vehicles to the organisation’s headquarters.1

Kia is phasing out the use of leather in its vehicles

Future Kia cars will be able to ‘read’ human emotions

In collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Kia has developed a new technology called Real-time Emotion Adaptive Driving (R.E.A.D.) which can personalise and optimise the cabin space of a car based on the occupant’s emotional state. This interactive cabin space uses AI-based bio-recognition technology to enable communication between drivers and vehicles, for a more joyful mobility experience.3
