As an affordable and reliable supermini, the SEAT Ibiza has been a hit with British drivers since it launched its UK launch back in 1985.

The latest iteration of the Ibiza boasts sporty styling and a surprising amount of room on the inside.

SEAT Ibiza insurance groups and tax bands

When working out a fair price for your premium, insurance providers will consider both your personal circumstances and the car you’d like covered. When looking at your vehicle, some insurers may consider your car’s insurance group, which is sorted based on a banding system ranging from 1-50, which reflects the costs and risks associated with a given model of vehicle.

Another banding system to look out for as a driver relates to Vehicle Excise Duty. This is a tax that needs to be paid annually, and is charged in accordance with your car’s CO2 emissions, whereby the highest-emitting vehicles are charged more.

Insurance groups and tax bands for leading editions of the SEAT Ibiza are:

Model Insurance Group Tax Band
SEAT Ibiza SE Technology 1.0 MPI 75PS 5d 2 G
SEAT Ibiza FR 1.0 MPI 80PS 5d 5 F
SEAT Ibiza Xcellence 1.0 TSI 95PS 5d 8 F
SEAT Ibiza SE Technology 1.6 TDI 80PS 5d 9 E
SEAT Ibiza FR 1.0 TSI 115PS DSG auto 5d 12 G
SEAT Ibiza FR Sport 1.6 TDI 95PS 5d 13 F

At Ageas, we strive to bring our comprehensive car cover to as many customers as we can. However, we cannot promise a policy for every customer and every type of car, and this could include some variations of the SEAT Ibiza.

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.
