The Volkswagen Golf is one of the most popular car models of all time, celebrated for its durable build and for the extensive range of engines and body types on offer. 

Having been available in hatchback, estate, convertible, cabriolet and saloon variants throughout its history, there’s a Volkswagen Golf out there for every kind of driver.

Tax and insurance groups for your Volkswagen Golf

Insurers look at lots of information before figuring out a fair price for your cover. This will often include things like your age and occupation, while some providers may want to factor in the insurance group of the car you drive. These are bandings from1-50 that indicate the costs and risks associated with each model of car, with higher-numbered cars being more expensive to repair – and potentially insure. 

Another banding system to bear in mind is that used to calculate Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) of a car. This is a tax paid annually on any car registered on UK roads, and is charged according to the vehicle’s CO2 emissions. 

Tax bands and insurance groups for some Volkswagen Golf variants are: 

Model Insurance Group Tax Band
Volkswagen Golf 1.2 TSI Bluemotion Tech S 3d 7 G
Volkswagen Golf 1.6 TDI S 5d 10 A
Volkswagen Golf 1.4 TSI Bluemotion Tech S 3d 14 D
Volkswagen Golf R-Line 1.5 TSI Evo 5d 16 G
Volkswagen Golf Match 2.0 TDI 150PS 5d 18 G
Volkswagen Golf 2.0 TDI R-Line Edition 3d 20 C
Volkswagen Golf GTI 2.0 TSI BMT 230PS 32 H
Volkswagen Golf R 2.0 TSI BMT 310PS 4Motion 39 J

At Ageas, we provide car insurance cover for as many cars and drivers as we can. But we can’t guarantee we’ll have a policy that works for every customer and car, and that could include some versions of the Volkswagen Golf.
