How much does a Vauxhall cost to insure?
Vauxhall insurance premiums will vary depending on the specific model of Vauxhall car you choose to buy. Insurers rank vehicles into groups depending on their cost and performance. As you would expect, a low-powered Vauxhall Corsa will be in a different insurance group from the more high-powered Vauxhall SE 1.5 Turbo D.
In fact, the Corsa 1.2 Design is in insurance Group 3, while the turbo charged SE sits in insurance group 20.
The reason for this is that the small engine Corsa does not have the capability to be driven at high speeds, so it is in a lower group.
The higher the group a car is in, the more you can expect to pay for insurance. The general rule of thumb is that the bigger and more powerful your car engine is, the steeper your car insurance premiums will be.
To give you an idea of how this works out when it comes to pricing, the VXR8 GTS has an average premium of £4,657*. Given it has a 6.2-litre, V8 engine driving the rear wheels and with nearly 600bhp behind it, the high premium comes as little surprise.
In contrast, the fuel-efficient but far less speedy Vauxhall Agila SE could be insured for around £461*.
Vauxhall offers a huge range of cars, including small models like the Corsa, compact family cars like the Astra, larger saloons like the Insignia and SUVs in the shape of the Crossland and Grandland. Insurance quotes will differ relating to which car you plump for.
As well as different design specs and engine power, your car insurance premium will also depend on other factors specific to you. For instance, where you live, your driving history and how old you are can all affect what you pay.
