Insurance groups and tax bands for Peugeot 208 models

When providing you with a quote for your car insurance cover, providers look at lots of information about yourself and the car you drive before settling on a price. You’ll probably know that factors like your age and where you live are taken into account, but car insurance groups may also be considered by some insurers. These are bandings running from 1-50, whereby cars in the highest groups are more expensive to repair, so they may receive pricier quotes.

Bands are also used to determine how much Vehicle Excise Duty you’ll owe on your car in its first taxable year. This is done in accordance with the model’s CO2 emissions, with the most polluting vehicles being charged more.

Insurance groups and tax bands for some versions of the Peugeot 208 are:

Model Insurance Group Tax Band
Peugeot 208 Active PureTech S/S 1.2 Manual 74bhp 12 G
Peugeot 208 Active PureTech S/S 1.2l Automatic 101bhp 19 H

We aim to provide comprehensive car insurance policies to as many drivers as we can here at Ageas. But we can’t guarantee we can offer a policy to any driver and every car, and that could include some editions of the Peugeot 208.

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.
