With over a century of history, Alfa Romeo knows a thing or two about crafting quality vehicles. Heavily involved in motor racing since its launch, sporty design is ingrained in the make’s DNA.
Today, Alfa Romeo offers a limited but no less impressive lineup of luxury vehicles, including the stylish Giulietta and Stelvio.
3 facts about Alfa Romeo

Alfa Romeo insurance groups and tax bands
To determine a fair price for your premium, insurers weigh up a lot of information both about you and about the car you’d like covered. That may include the model’s insurance group, based on a banding system that runs from 1-50. Cars in the highest-numbered groups tend to cost more to repair and come with greater risks.
There’s also a banding system used to calculate your road tax. Also known as Vehicle Excise Duty (VED), this tax is owed annually and charged according to your car’s CO2 emissions.
Tax bands and insurance groups for some Alfa Romeo models are:
|Model||Insurance Group||Tax Band|
|Alfa Romeo 147||24 - 33||G - K|
|Alfa Romeo 159||18 - 33||E - M|
|Alfa Romeo Brera||24 - 37||F - M|
|Alfa Romeo Giulia||22 - 49||B - K|
|Alfa Romeo Giulietta||15 - 33||A - I|
|Alfa Romeo Mito||8 - 28||A - G|
