Top 25: Cars in tax band C
Saving money on road tax doesn’t have to be the preserve of economy-focused small cars. Start looking at cars that fall within Band C for VED – where you’ll pay just £30 per year – and there’s a whole host of interesting and entertaining models to choose from.
And that’s what makes band C cars particularly interesting, because this is the level at which the balance begins to shift slightly from the worthy to the more sparkling, with more petrol-engined cars and names like BMW, Audi, Alfa Romeo and Mercedes-Benz in greater numbers.

BMW’s foray into the world of front-wheel drive manages to be both stylish and practical in equal measure. One-touch folding rear seats and an electric tailgate ensure its user friendly, there’s 1510 litres of maximum space available, and the rear seats slide by 150mm for added versatility. It’s also nice to drive and the cabin is comfortable, spacious, and boasts impressive solidity and material quality.
Slotting into band C is the petrol-powered 218i that gets BMW’s refined and frugal 1.5-litre three-cylinder engine, and it’s a mighty impressive unit. Smooth, punchy, and characterful it makes a very strong case for sticking with the green pump at the forecourt.
