When it comes to motor car history, Vauxhall is close behind Ford, having manufactured cars since 1903. Although now owned by German manufacturer Opel, many Vauxhall cars are still British made in Luton and Ellesmere Port.

It’s one of the most popular brands on British roads, with over 177,298 sold in the UK in 2018. The most popular model is the Corsa, with 52,915 being bought by British motorists in 2018.

What’s the average insurance cost for a Vauxhall?

The insurance cost for a Vauxhall varies greatly depending on the model you select and your own circumstances. For the Vauxhall Corsa, the most popular Vauxhall model on UK roads, we ran quotes using a scenario and found the average was £620.53 annually or £57.19 a month for fully comprehensive cover with no optional extras. Your actual quote will be more or less, depending on your driving record and the number of miles you drive in a year as well as other factors.

Companies that provide cover for a Vauxhall

Plenty of insurance companies will provide cover for a Vauxhall, and they’re generally affordable cars to insure. However, they are sometimes targeted by thieves, which can up the price of your premium. Other factors that affect the cost include the model, mileage and trim package.
