Insurance groups and tax bands for Citroen C3 models

Your car insurance quote will depend on a few things. Every insurer will have their own criteria, with factors like your age and occupation often being considered. Something that insurance providers may look into is the insurance group of the car you drive. These are bandings running from 1-50 that reflect the costs and risks associated with every model, therefore helping insurers estimate the scale of any potential claims. Please read our guide to car insurance groups in the UK for more details.

Another banding system to look out for is the one used for Vehicle Excise Duty, also known as car tax. This is a tax owed annually, and the amount charged depends on your car’s CO2 emissions.

Insurance groups and tax bands for versions of the Citroen C3 include:
