With nearly five decades of heritage to point to, it’s no wonder that the Honda Civic ticks so many boxes in the compact car segment.

Today’s Civic is a sporty and technologically advanced small car that’s popular among many British drivers.

Insurance groups and tax bands for Honda Civic models

How much you’re likely to be charged for your Honda car insurance depends on several factors. One thing providers may take into account is the insurance group of the vehicle you drive, as this may help determine the scale of your potential claims. This system reflects the costs and risks associated with each model of car, whereby the costliest cars are placed in the highest groups (from 1-50).

Please read our guide to car insurance groups in the UK for more details. 

Another banding system you’ll encounter as a driver is the one used to determine how much Vehicle Excise Duty you owe. This is paid annually on all cars driven or parked on UK roads, and how much you’ll be charged depends on how much CO2 your car emits. 

Car tax bands and insurance groups for popular editions of the Honda Civic include:

Model Insurance Group Tax Band
Honda Civic 1.0 VTEC Turbo S 5d 15 F
Honda Civic SE 120PS i-DTEC 5d 15 D

We aim to offer cover to as many drivers as we can, but Ageas can’t promise to have a policy for every make, model and variant of car, and this could include some versions of the Honda Civic.

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