Find out more about Vauxhall car insurance

Vauxhall's wide range of cars offers something for everyone, from small city cars like the Corsa to popular hatchbacks like the Astra and the much larger compact MPVs like the Zafira.

Vauxhall's range of cars fall into a variety of categories, so it can be quite difficult to predict potential insurance costs without taking a closer look at different factors.

  • The Association of British Insurers allocate car insurance groups for most vehicles, which are usually used to calculate premiums.
  • Generally speaking, the higher the insurance group, the higher the premium.
  • There are several factors that could determine how much your premium could be, such as the age, value, engine size, the cost of repairs and security features.

Vauxhall takes pride in its reliability and quality to the point where they offer a lifetime warranty cover on some of its new models. This could cover the costs of replacement parts of the first registered keeper for up to 100,000 miles if anything goes wrong with the new Vauxhall.

Not only is the Agila Vauxhall's cheapest model (with prices starting from £8,695 - correct at time of writing, May 2014), but it also falls under a low insurance group (between 4 and 12) and sits among the lower tax bands, making it a good run around for city driving.

Although it came close to matching class-leading rivals like the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf with its quality and style, Astra's popularity also made it our fourth most quoted for car in 2012 and it came fifth in the top 10 popular used cars in 2013.

From the 1.3l Hatchback to the 2.0l GTC Coupé, Astra’s latest models are well built with a range of efficient petrol and diesel engine options, all of which could impact the insurance premium you can expect to pay.

Vauxhall Insignia

Vauxhall's current Insignia range has options to suit the economically-minded, like the 1.4l Exclusiv, or the 2.0l VXR for those who are seeking a powerful, high-performance driving experience. The engine size, value of the car and its high spec are just a few reasons why the Insignia could fall under the high insurance group range.
