Insurance groups and tax bands for Renault models
When insurers are deciding on a premium, they look at lots of information, such as your age and where you live. In some cases, that might also include your car’s insurance group, which is a banding system from 1-50 that reflects the costs and risks associated with a particular model of vehicle.
Another thing that hinges on the model of car you drive is your Vehicle Excise Duty. Also known as road tax, this needs to be paid annually, and is calculated using a banding system that reflects your car’s CO2 emissions.
Insurance groups and tax bands for the leading Renault models are:
|Model||Insurance Group||Tax Band|
|Renault Clio||3 - 16||E - G|
|Renault Grand Scenic||11 - 21||A - H|
|Renault Kadjar||14 - 24||A - H|
|Renault Koleos||18 - 23||G - I|
|Renault Megane Hatchback||14 - 37||A - K|
|Renault Scenic||10 - 21||A - H|
