Audi A3 insurance groups and tax bands

When deciding on a price that’s right, insurers take your personal circumstances into account. That will include information about yourself and the car you drive, and one factor some providers may consider is your vehicle’s insurance group. Insurance groups are bands numbered 1-50 that reflect the costs and risks associated with each model of car, with cars in lower groups potentially paying a lower premium.

Please read our guide to car insurance groups in the UK for more details.

You’ll also need to pay annual road tax on any car you insure. This is also calculated using a banding system whereby the amount owed depends on your vehicle’s CO2 emissions.

Tax bands and insurance groups for some popular variants of the Audi A3 include:
