Citroen C1, through to the sporty C4 Aircross and the boxy Berlingo, which can offer up to eight seats.

3 things to know about Citroen

  • Founded in 1919, Citroen went on to produce the world’s first mass-produced front-wheel drive car in 1934, known as the Traction Avant*.
  • The manufacturer kept up their pioneering spirit from there, releasing the very first models to include self-levelling suspension, disc brakes and swiveling headlights^.
  • Citroen’s GS, CX and XM models have all been crowned European Car of the Year**.

Citroen car insurance groups and tax bands

When working out a fair price for your car insurance, providers will consider lots of information about yourself and the car you’d like covered. They do this to evaluate your level of risk, whereby drivers who are considered the lowest risk will often pay the lowest premiums.

Factors often looked at include your age and where you live, while some insurers may consider the insurance group of the car you drive. Insurance groups are bandings that run from 1 to 50, reflecting the costs and risks associated with that particular model of car, with the lower numbers tending to have safer records and being cheaper to repair.

Another banding system used in the world of motoring is applied to your Vehicle Excise Duty, or 'road tax'. While most vehicles are now charged at a flat annual rate, what you’ll need to pay in the first year that a new car is registered depends on its CO2 emissions, and which band these fall under.

Insurance groups and tax bands for leading Citroen models include:

Model Insurance Group Tax Band
Citroen C1 Feel VTi 1.0l Manual 68bhp 6 F
Citroen C3 Flair Plus PureTech S/S 1.2l Manual 82bhp 8 H
Citroen Berlingo Feel XL PureTech S/S 1.2l Manual 109bhp 10 I
Citroen C1 Flair Edition PureTech 1.2l Manual 80bhp 12 E
