Is this tax right for a 2016 Ford Kuga?

Hi there.

I have a 162 Ford Kuga and my tax per year is €710. This seems very high for a 2016 car. Am I missing something?

HI Niall,

Yeah, that sounds wrong to us. The highest emissions figure we can find for a 2016 Kuga is 140g/km, which would result in tax of €280, and that would be for the range-topping 180hp version with four-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox. However, €710 is EXACTLY the motor tax you’d pay on a 2.0-litre engine if the car was previously registered as a commercial vehicle and then taxed as a private car. Maybe check and see if that’s the case?
