That's what i thought... I have just typed a registration to two different corsa c sxi 1.2's into the DVLA's website and its saying the following...

Vehicle Excise Duty rate for vehicle
6 Months Rate 90.75
12 Months Rate 165.00

WTF?

Can anyone confirm this?

To make it even stranger, my Corsa B 1.4 16V is the following...

Vehicle Excise Duty rate for vehicle
6 Months Rate 71.50
12 Months Rate 130.00

Am i missing something here? How does that make sense?

Seems that 90.75 is right

It's a Corsa C SXI 1.2 16V 2002...

Looking at the parkers website it seems if the registration date is between 1 Mar 2001 - 9 Jun 2003 it is actually 90.75...

9 Jun 2003 - 1 Aug 2004 its 73...

That's bullshit

The B is pre-2001 which is when they changed it all. Before 2001 the only tax bands where 1.5 and under or 1.6 and over. After 2001 it works off emissions

Facelift Corsa C's with the Twinport engine has cheaper tax due to lower emissions.

I just paid 90 for 6 months on the Fiesta. 12 months was 165. Never known a difference of 15 between 2 x 6 months and 12 months. Didn't it used to be 5 or something?

I wouldn't say it was that much of a rip-off, my 2005 1.4 is the same price tax as my old 1999 1.2 because of it, it's just the pre-2003 Corsa Cs that are expensive

It is a rip off to say your road tax dosent specifically goto the roads. Your local council are in charge of road repairs out of their budget. Think government just do the big stuff like motorways.
