With its rugged looks and demanding road presence, the Kuga is among Ford’s most instantly-recognisable models.

The first iteration arrived in 2008, followed by a second in 2012. Beyond its looks, the intelligent technology and intuitive features in this SUV make it a pleasure to drive.

Ford Kuga insurance groups and tax bandings

Insurers collate lots of information when deciding on the best premium they can offer you. One factor that some insurers consider is the insurance group, which uses a banding system from 1-50 that accounts for the risk and cost associated with a given model of car. Car insurance groups are explained in more detail here.

All vehicles on UK roads will need to pay their annual VED (Vehicle Excise Duty). This is a tax which varies depending on a given car’s CO2 emissions.

Insurance groups and tax bands for popular trims of the Ford Kuga include:

Model Insurance Group Tax Band
Ford Kuga 1.5 EcoBoost (120bhp) Zetec 2WD 5d 15 I
Ford Kuga 1.5 TDCi 120PS Titanium X FWD 5d 17 I
