The Sub-100g/km Club

Annual vehicle tax can be a significant part of a car’s running costs. The rate of road tax or, to give it its official name, Vehicle Excise Duty, is determined by a car’s CO2 emissions. The lower the CO2 emissions the less you have to pay.

Some cars offer the first year free, but incur a charge thereafter. But others, if the CO2 is low enough, allow owners to renew the VED free of charge year after year. The current threshold for that is 100g/km and a surprisingly high number of cars now qualify.

CO2 emissions from 84g/km

If you want to get an i20 with emissions of below 100g/km then you'll need a diesel - specifically a 1.1-litre CRDi. But the rest of the engine range, while not quite making it below 100g/km, is still very impressive.
