Vauxhall Car Insurance

Vauxhall is one of Britain’s most celebrated car manufacturers. Its story began back in 1857, when Scottish Engineer Alex Wilson formed a company in Vauxhall, London that manufactured pumps and marine engines. It was originally called Alex Wilson and Company, but changed its name to Vauxhall for the launch of its first motorcar in 1903. Vauxhall’s next major model, the C10, was launched in 1910 and was acknowledged as Britain’s first sports car. The company continued releasing new vehicles in subsequent years, and in 1925 General Motors bought it for $2.5 million. Vauxhall focused primarily on luxury cars, but during WWII it manufactured three models of Churchill tank to support the war effort.

After WWII, Vauxhall changed its focus away from luxury cars, becoming a mass-market brand for everyday people. It released a number of models designed for families, such as the Victor, which became Britain’s most exported car. Vauxhall’s landmark small family car, the Astra, has been used by British police since 2007 and has ranked among the world’s 30 most popular cars. Other popular models like the Corsa, Nova and Insignia have helped Vauxhall remain as Britain’s second-largest selling manufacturer for two decades.

Vauxhall’s iconic logo is a griffin, which was derived from the coat of arms of Fulk le Breant, a mercenary Anglo-Norman soldier. Fulk built a house in London called Fulk’s hall, which become known in time as Vauxhall. Wanting to show ties to the local area, Alex Wilson’s company adopted the emblem and has featured it on Vauxhall cars ever since.

Vauxhall Car Insurance Groups

We insure plenty of Vauxhall models, so have pulled together a list of the insurance groups popular Vauxhalls fall into. Of course we can’t mention every Vauxhall we insure so if your car isn’t on the list, it doesn’t mean to say we won’t insure it. Get a quote today to find out how much you could save.


Vauxhall Corsa Insurance Groups

The Vauxhall Corsa is a compact car that is suited for city life. It’s available in three-door or five-door versions, so can be a good option if you have children that you need to get in and out of the car. The newer models come with lots of optional features, like alloy wheels and digital radio. It’s worth noting some optional features–although as tempting as they are, could push your car into a higher insurance group.

While the Corsa is generally designed as an urban car, the range includes models with more powerful engines. These models may be suitable for you if you plan to travel on the motorway frequently. However, it’s worth noting that engine size may affect the cost of your Vauxhall car insurance quote.


Please be aware this is a guide only, insurers may group these cars differently.

Model Engine Size Insurance Group
Corsa Hatchback (93 – 00) 1.0 – 1.7 5 – 21
Corsa Hatchback (00 – 04) 1.0 – 1.8 3 – 19
Corsa Hatchback (03 – 06) 1.0 – 1.8 2 – 19
Corsa VXR (07 – 14) 1.6 30 – 34
Corsa Hatchback (06 – 14) 1.0 – 1.7 1 – 26


Vauxhall Astra Insurance Groups

The Vauxhall Astra is the big brother of the Corsa–a slightly larger hatchback that’s still compact and suited to city life. Newer ranges include five-door and estate car versions, along with options for diesel and petrol engines.

You can also choose between automatic and manual gear changing, although automatic gearboxes are only available in the more powerful versions. But bear in mind that engine size will affect the cost of insurance for Vauxhalls.


Please be aware this is a guide only, insurers may group these cars differently.

Model Engine Size Insurance Group
Astra Estate (98 – 04) 1.4 – 2.2 9 – 27
Astra Hatchback (98 – 05) 1.4 – 2.2 9 – 31
Astra Saloon (98 – 04) 1.6 – 2.0 9 – 17
Astra Coupé (00–04) 1.8 – 2.2 17 – 33
Astra Convertible (01 – 05) 1.6 – 2.0 17 – 33
Astra TwinTop (06 – 10) 1.6 – 2.0 11 – 32
Astra VXR (05 – 10) 2.0 34
Astra Estate (04 – 10) 1.3 – 2.0 9 – 32
Astra Sport Hatch (05 – 10) 1.4 – 2.0 10 – 34
Astra Hatchback (04 – 10) 1.3 – 2.0 7 – 32
Astra VXR (12 – 15) 2.0 35
Astra Sports Tourer (10 – 15) 1.3 – 2.0 9 – 21
Astra GTC Coupé (11 onwards) 1.4 – 2.0 13 - 35
Astra Hatchback (09 – 15) 1.3 - 2.0 7 - 26


Vauxhall Zafira Insurance Groups

The Vauxhall Zafira is an entry-level people carrier that’s practical and fuel-efficient. It’s well designed for urban parking, with light steering and a front camera on the newer models. It’s worth mentioning features like these could put your car in a lower insurance group, as you’re less likely to scrape or bump it while parking.

Being a people carrier, the Zafira range has more powerful engine types than other Vauxhalls. The range includes diesel and petrol versions, and an automatic gearbox is available if you choose the 2.0-litre diesel or the turbocharged 1.4-litre petrol version. Consider the engine type carefully, as more powerful engines may affect your Vauxhall insurance costs.


Please be aware this is a guide only, insurers may group these cars differently.

Model Engine Size Insurance Group
Zafira (99 – 05) 1.6 – 2.2 11 – 28
Zafira VXR (05 – 10) 2.0 30
Zafira (05 – 14) 1.6 – 2.2 10 - 23


Vauxhall Adam Insurance Groups

The Vauxhall Adam is a premium three-door city car that comes with a lot of opportunities for customisation, including electric roofing and smartphone docking. That said the more features you go for could result in higher repair bills, and of course bump up the insurance group your car would fall into.

Drivers who want more acceleration may be particular interested in the Adam Rocks, which has a powerful 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine. However, it’s worth keeping in mind that customisation options and engine size will affect your Vauxhall car insurance quote.


Please be aware this is a guide only, insurers may group these cars differently.

Model Engine Size Insurance Group
Adam Rocks (14 onwards) 1.0 – 1.4 2 – 15
Adam (12 onwards) 1.0 – 1.4 2 – 15


Vauxhall Insignia Insurance Groups

The Insignia is Vauxhall’s fleet car, and is available as an estate car or a five-door hatchback. Noticeably larger than some of Vauxhall’s other models, the Insignia is probably better suited to people who want a car with a bit more power. The Insignia has a range of optional features available, including a sunroof and cruise control. Of course, depending on your budget for car insurance you might want to choose a trim that comes with the standard amount of features–any extras could put your car into a higher insurance group and cost you more to insure.

There are four engine options in the Insignia range, including diesel and petrol variations. As with other models in Vauxhall’s range, the engine power and customisation options are likely to affect your Vauxhall insurance cost.


Please be aware this is a guide only, insurers may group these cars differently.

Model Engine Size Insurance Group
Insignia Saloon (09 – 14) 1.4 – 2.0 16 – 26
Insignia VXR (09 – 17) 2.8 36 – 38
Insignia Sports Tourer (09 – 17) 1.4 – 2.8 15 – 38
Vauxhall Insignia Hatchback (09 – 17) 1.4 - 2.8 14 - 38
Insignia Country Tourer (13 – 15) 2.0 20 - 22
