Vauxhall Vectra car insurance

Discontinued in 2008, the Vauxhall Vectra is still a popular choice for the second-hand market; so popular that it made our top 20 most quoted car list in 2012*. Available in hatchback, saloon and estate versions, it was Vauxhall's large family car and a popular choice for businesses as a fleet vehicle.

You can find the Vectra in a wide range of different ABI insurance groups; it could be classed from as low as 15 for some of its models and as high as 36 for their VXR range. Generally speaking, the higher the insurance group, the higher the premium, but other factors such as engine size, security features and power will contribute towards the premium.

The table below shows some of Vectra's models, their engine size, as well as the typical insurance group range and tax band. These could give you a better understanding of how much your premium could be.
