Fun fact

The name ‘Yaris’ comes from the Greek ‘Charis’ which is the singular form of ‘Charites’ – the Goddesses of charm and beauty.

Tax bands and insurance groups for Toyota Yaris models

There’s plenty that goes into a car insurance quote. Providers weigh up various factors when selecting a price that’s right, and one of these could be the insurance group of the car you drive. These are bandings running from 1-50, that indicate the costs and risks associated with that model to insurers.

Another banding system to keep on your radar is the one used for Vehicle Excise Duty. This is a tax charged annually in accordance with your vehicle’s CO2 emissions, where the most polluting cars have to pay more.

Tax bands and insurance groups for some editions of the Toyota Yaris include:

Model Insurance Group Tax Band
Toyota Yaris Active 1.0 VVT-i 5d 2 E
Toyota Yaris 1.0 VVT-i Edition 3d 3 C
Toyota Yaris 1.0 VVT-i TR Nav 5d 4 C

We love to provide comprehensive cover for as many drivers as possible here at Ageas. But we can’t guarantee we have a policy for every single marque, model, and variant of vehicle, and this could include some editions of the Toyota Yaris.

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.
