Why drive a Vauxhall Corsa?

The Vauxhall Corsa is a long-time rival to the Ford Fiesta as one of Britain’s most popular and best-selling hatchbacks. It comes from a longstanding British manufacturer, with Vauxhall a fully owned subsidiary of German automaker Opel.

It also offers one of the best engines in its class – from 1.2l to 1.5l – and you can choose between petrol, diesel and pure-electric power.

How much does it cost to insure a Vauxhall Corsa?

Vauxhall Corsas can be among the cheapest cars to insure, but it will depend on which insurance group your specific model falls into. For example, if you own the 1.2 Life edition then it’s part of the lowest cost insurance groups, but if you have a GSi 1.4i Turbo the cost of cover rises significantly.

The groups are based on a range of factors such as the car’s performance and safety, but they aren’t the only influence on insurance premiums. Your own driving habits and history, where you live and even your job can play a role.

What affects the cost of my Vauxhall Corsa insurance?

As well as the insurance group of the vehicle, your provider will also consider:

  • Your age

    Insurers view younger drivers as being more likely to cause road accidents, so premiums tend to be higher

  • Your location

    Living in an area that suffers from higher rates of car theft or vandalism is likely to increase your premiums

  • Your driving and claims history

    Having previous insurance claims or driving convictions tells insurers you’re more likely to make one in the future - so your premiums go up

  • Your mileage

    Simply, the further you travel the more likely you are to have an accident. This is how insurers see it, and so price premiums accordingly

  • Storage and safety

    Where you leave your car also affects insurance costs - by parking your vehicle in a private garage or driveway, you could earn lower premiums

Who drives a Vauxhall Corsa?

The Vauxall Corsa is predominantly favoured by youngsters with almost two-thirds of its drivers being aged under 30. In terms of ownership by region, while the more densely populated London and the North West are the two biggest locations, West Midlands (13%) and Yorkshire and the Humber (11%) are not far behind2.

Average car insurance premiums by age and policy type

What cover do I need for my Vauxhall Corsa?

Vauxhall Corsa drivers can choose from three different types of car insurance policy:

  • Fully comprehensive

    Fully comprehensive insurance covers both you and the third party if you’re involved in an accident. It’s typically the most complete protection you can get, as well as the cheapest 

    £827 on average2

  • Third-party, fire and theft

    Third-party, fire and theft offers cover for damage done to a third-party, their vehicle or their property, but also adds cover for your own car if it's stolen or damaged by fire

    £1,124 on average2

  • Third-party only

    Third-party insurance is the minimum legal requirement to drive  in the UK. In the event of an incident that’s your fault, your insurance will cover damage to the other party, but not to your own car

    £1,637 on average2

How to cut the cost of Vauxhall Corsa car insurance

There are several ways you might be able to cut the cost of your car insurance:

  • 1

    Try telematics

    Young drivers could benefit from having a telematics device (or black box) installed in their car to track their driving habits. As the insurer learns they are sensible, the premiums can reduce

  • 2

    Build a no-claims bonus

    In some cases – particularly if the damage is quite minor – it may be better to pay for the repairs yourself. This will protect your no-claims bonus which could add up to a sizeable discount if you build it up over the years

  • 3

    Avoid features you don’t need

    Car insurance providers sometimes offer extras when you buy a policy. Consider whether you really need them, and if you decide you do, see if they are cheaper being bought separately first

  • 4

    Add an experienced driver

    Adding a more experienced driver to your insurance policy can also cut premiums for younger motorists as insurers are reassured the driving responsibility is shared
