Ford Fiesta car insurance groups and tax bands

When deciding on a premium for your Ford Fiesta insurance, insurers will look at lots of information about yourself and the car you drive, so they can determine your level of risk. This allows the provider to estimate your likelihood of making a claim, and what the scale of those claims might be.

You may know that factors like your age and where you live are often looked at, while the insurer will also want to know about the car you drive. As part of this, they may look at the vehicle’s ‘insurance group’. Insurance groups are bandings running from 1-50 that reflect the costs and risks associated with that particular model, whereby cars that are cheaper to repair and have better safety records fall into the lowest groups.

Learn more about how car insurance groups work.

Another banding system to be aware of is the one used for vehicle tax. Formally known as Vehicle Excise Duty, this tax is charged annually, and how much you’ll need to pay in the first year the car is registered depends on its CO2 emissions. It’s charged at a flat rate for each year thereafter.

Tax bands and insurance groups for some Ford Fiesta models include:

Model Insurance Group Tax Band
Ford Fiesta Active 1 EcoBoost 1.0l Manual 123bhp 12 G
Ford Fiesta Active Edition EcoBoost 1.0l Manual 94bhp 10 H
Ford Fiesta ST-Line X EcoBoost 1.0l Manual 138bhp 15 G
Ford Fiesta Titanium EcoBoost 1.0l DCT 94bhp 10 G
Ford Fiesta Trend Ti-VCT 1.1l Manual 74bhp 4 G
Ford Fiesta ST-Line Edition EcoBoost Hybrid 1.0l Manual 153bhp 17 G
Ford Fiesta Active X TDCi 1.5l Manual 118bhp 14 G
Ford Fiesta ST 1 EcoBoost 1.5l Manual 197bhp 28 H


At Ageas, we do our best to find a policy for as many drivers as possible. But we cannot promise we can offer cover for everyone and every car, and you may find that some editions of the Ford Fiesta are excluded.

We will determine if we can provide you with a quote based on several factors that include your car and your personal circumstances.
