Land Rover Discovery insurance groups and tax bands

Insurers consider lots of factors when deciding what’s fair to charge you for your cover. This will often include things such as your age your occupation and where you park your car overnight, but could also include the insurance group of your vehicle. This is a banding system running 1-50, whereby the cars in the lowest bands are cheaper to repair and involve less risk to insurers. 

Another banding system you’ll need to know about is the one used to calculate your road tax. Also known as Vehicle Excise Duty, this is owed annually for all cars used on UK roads, and how much you need to pay depends on the CO2 emissions of your car. 

Insurance groups and tax bands for popular variants of the Land Rover Discovery include:

Land Rover Discovery S 2.0 Si4 300hp 4WD 5d 35 K
