    In the region of £1500-2000 as that is a large engine size for a first time driver
    Though as you are 23 you may get it for nearer 1000

    Why don't you put info into a comparison site and see what comes up?

    It would probably be about 1500-2000 for your first year and then it would go down

    This thread should be in Cars and Motoring - tagging AngryJellyfish to get it moved.

    No one can tell you how much your insurance will cost. Get a quote to find out.

    See the sticky at the top of Cars and Motoring for tips on lowering your premiums.

    Why are you going for 2.0L for your first car? I really don't understand why people do this. As stated above, as you're older it *may* make a difference. But to my knowledge, age will only make insurance cheaper for you once you hit 25. It seems to be the magical age where you're deemed as mature and responsible. You should check the compare websites to see prices but it will likely be somewhere between £1100-£1800 for the year.
