Consistently ranked as one of Europe’s most popular models since its 1990 launch, the Renault Clio is loved by drivers for its city-ready dimensions and efficient running costs. 

With a fifth generation arriving in 2019, the model now boasts a sportiest exterior yet, along with lots of innovative features to take advantage of.

Insurance groups and tax bands for Renault Clio models

How much you’ll pay for your car insurance cover will depend on several factors. Insurers consider various things when calculating your premium and one of these might be the insurance group of the vehicle you drive. These groups are numbered 1-50 and reflect the costs of parts and repairs on your particular model of car, with vehicles in the higher-numbered groups tending to be more expensive to insure. 

Another banding system is used to figure out how much Vehicle Excise Duty you owe. This is a tax charged annually, and how much you’ll pay depends on the CO2 emissions of the model of your car. 

Tax bands and Renault insurance groups for common editions of the Renault Clio include:
