Top 50: Cars in tax band B
Even if you can’t manage to be completely road-tax free, step up into VED Band B – for cars emitting 101-110 g/km of CO2 - and you’ll still only pay £20 per year.
That sounds pretty good to us, and even better news is the terrific choice of cars in that band, from the practical to the premium. Here’s our pick of the most interesting.
Practical and stylish, this addition to the 2 Series range brings with it a number of BMW firsts, including front-wheel drive and turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engines. But it’s the 218d diesel model that interests us here, with low CO2 emissions and 68.9mpg economy, and it’s no slouch either, ticking off the 0-62mph sprint in a sprightly 8.9 seconds.
Passengers benefit from a comfortable and luxurious cabin with ample room for five, and luggage capacity is impressive too, with an electric tailgate as standard. It’s good to drive too, with slick controls and composed handling, but be wary of getting busy with the options list as it will soon get pricey.
