Clio Mk2 1.6 16v Tax difference


I've just brought a 2nd hand clio mk2 1.6 16v Dynamique + (2001 Y reg) which is listed on parkers as being tax band G 165g/km however on the DVLA the when putting in the reg for a vehicle enquiry, the tax is listed as band H 170g/km, which is the same as the pre 2001 RSI models.

the above results in me paying 180 instead of 155..

can anyone help answer why this is?

Do the 2001 51's have a different engine to the 2001 Y's? the engines look the same in pictures ive seen (ps same shape clio)...

Hi Simon and welcome.

It may be due to some optional extras (wider wheels & tyres, air-con, etc) which can all increase emissions.

But I'd raise it with the DVLA, as they must have somebasis behind their reasoning.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
