Tax bands and insurance groups for the Renault Mégane

When settling on a fair price for your car cover, insurance providers consider a variety of information about you and the car you drive. One factor that they may choose to consider is the insurance group of your car. This is a banding system that runs from 1-50, reflecting the costs and risks associated with each model of vehicle, which are then sorted into lower or higher groupings accordingly.

You’ll also want to be aware of the banding system used to calculate your first years’ road tax, also known as Vehicle Excise Duty. This is charged according to the observed CO2 emissions of your car’s model, with the most polluting vehicles being charged higher fees.

Tax bandings and insurance groups for some favourite Renault Mégane models include:
