Hyundai have been at the forefront of the South Korean motor industry for more than half a century. 

With models like the sporty and city-ready i10 and the big and bold Tucson, in Hyundai’s range can suit every kind of driver. It’s no surprise that the Hyundai badge is an increasingly common sight on British roads.

Insurance groups and tax bands for Hyundai models

When putting your quote together, insurers look at lots of information about yourself and your vehicle. 

One thing that some insurers may factor in is your car’s insurance group. These are bandings from 1-50, with lower groups corresponding to models with less powerful engines and lower repair costs, which might receive lower premiums as a result. 

Any car driven on UK roads will need to have tax paid annually, too. Known as Vehicle Excise Duty (VED), this is charged according to a banding system, based upon that model’s CO2 emissions. 

Insurance groups and tax bands for some Hyundai models include:

Model Insurance Group Tax Band
Hyundai i10 1 - 7 A - H
Hyundai i20 Hatchback 4 - 12 A - H
Hyundai i20 Active 9 B - G 
Hyundai i30 Hatchback 8 - 28 A - J
Hyundai i40 Tourer 12 - 20 C - I
Hyundai Ioniq 10 - 12 A - D
Hyundai Santa Fe 18 - 31 G - J
Hyundai Tucson 12 - 25 C - J
