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|
