THERE'S STILL TIME TO BEAT THE VED INCREASE IN APRIL. WE HAVE SELECTED MODELS IN STOCK AVAILABLE FOR IMMEDIATE DELIVERY AND MARCH REGISTRATION
In 2015 the Government announced that the way in which they charge Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) – also known as Road Tax, Car Tax, Road Fund License (RFL), the Tax Disc, Car duty – would change from 1st April 2017. This is known as ‘VED Reform’ and the DVLA will implement the change for all new car registrations from 1st April 2017.

What about cars that are already registered?
If you buy your car before 1 April 2017, you won't be affected by these changes, because they only apply to cars registered on or after that date. Your tax will continue to be calculated using the old system of CO2 emissions, meaning that in the vast majority of cases you'll be better off.
So, how much worse off will you be if you buy a car under the new tax system? What Car? has worked out the costs over three years for some of the UK's most popular models, as well as for some of our What Car? Award winners from 2016. Click through to the next page to view the results.
