Audi car insurance groups and tax bands

When calculating your Audi car insurance quote, insurers will weigh up information about yourself and the car you’d like covered, in order to determine your level of risk. This helps them to estimate the likelihood and scale of any claims you might make in the future.

This includes factors like your age and occupation and one thing the insurer may also consider is the insurance group of the car you drive. Insurance groups are bandings running from 1-50 that reflect the costs and risks associated with each model, with cars in the lowest groups shown to be more affordable and having a safer record on the roads.

Another banding system to be aware of in the world of motoring is that used for vehicle tax. This is charged annually, and how much you’ll need to pay in the first year the car is registered depends on its CO2 emissions.

Insurance groups for some Audi models include:

Model Insurance Group Tax Band
Audi A1 Sportback SE 25 TFSI 1.0l Automatic 94bhp 16 F
Audi A3 Saloon S Line 35 TDI 2.0l Automatic 148bhp 26 G
Audi A4 Avant Technik 30 TDI 2.0l DSG 134bhp 23 H
Audi A5 Cabriolet S Line 40 TFSI 2.0l DSG 187bhp 40 I
Audi Q3 SUV Sport 35 TFSI 1.498l Manual 148bhp 24 I
Audi Q7 SUV Sport Quattro 55 TFSI MHEV 3.0l 335bhp 44 L

At Ageas, we aim to offer our car insurance to as many drivers as possible, but we can’t guarantee a policy for every driver and every car, and this could mean some editions of Audi cars are excluded.
