With four decades of heritage to point to, the Volkswagen Polo is a frequent sight on UK roads.

Now into its sixth generation, the Polo’s versatile range of body types, powertrains, and optional features make it an excellent choice for all kinds of drivers.

Tax bands and insurance groups for Volkswagen Polo models

There’s a lot that goes into a car insurance quote. Providers look at different types of information before settling on a fair price, and one such factor could be the insurance group of the vehicle you want covered. These groups are numbered 1-50 and indicate how expensive parts and repairs are on any given model, so they may help insurers to figure out the costs and risks involved. 

You’ll also want to familiarise yourself with the banding system that’s used to calculate your Vehicle Excise Duty. This is a tax owed annually on all cars being used on UK roads, and how much you pay depends on how much CO2 your vehicle emits. 

Insurance groups and tax bands for popular Volkswagen Polo editions include: 

Model Insurance Group Tax Band
Volkswagen Polo S 1.0 65PS 5d 1 F
Volkswagen Polo Beats 1.0 75PS 5d 2 F
Volkswagen Polo SE 1.6 TDI 80PS 5d 6 E
Volkswagen Polo R-Line 1.0 TSI 95PS 5d 8 F
Volkswagen Polo SEL 1.6 TDI 95PS 5d 9 E
Volkswagen Polo SEL 1.0 TSI 115PS 5d 10 E
Volkswagen Polo R-Line 1.0 TSI 115PS 5d 12 F
Volkswagen Polo GTI+ 2.0 TSI 200PS DSG 5d 28 H


At Ageas, we’d like to offer our comprehensive cover to as many UK drivers as possible. But we can’t promise we can arrange a policy for every single customer and car, and that could include some editions of the Volkswagen Polo.
 

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.
