Insurance groups and tax bands for Ford models

Insurers look at lots of information when deciding what they should quote for your insurance premium. When deciding your premium, some insurers factor in insurance groups - bandings from 1-50 that take into account how much the car might cost to repair and how powerful its engine is, among other features. Read our guide explaining what car insurance groups mean.

In the UK, all cars on the road must pay tax annually. How much you’ll need to pay depends on the CO2 emissions of your car, which are categorised within a banding system.
