What is a Vauxhall Agila?
The Vauxhall Agila shares DNA with the Suzuki Wagon R and Suzuki Splash, and fills a similar sweet spot within the city car niche. A compact but practical scaled-down SUV that’s equally at home on urban streets and motorways.
Launched in the late 1990s, the Agila has gone from strength to strength, holding its own in a changing market. Sitting somewhere between a supermini and a mini MPV, its small hatchback format and roomy interior have made it a hit with a wide range of customers. It’s equally capable as a small family car, urban runabout or handy second car.
The Agila racked up over 2 decades on the UK market before gracefully handing its crown over to the Vauxhall Viva in 2015. That means nowadays, you can pick up an Agila at a very good price, on the second-hand market.

You may find a cheaper or more expensive quote based on your circumstances.
Can I cut the cost of my Vauxhall Agila insurance?
The number one way to keep your insurance premiums low is to build up your no-claims bonus. You receive a no-claims bonus (also called a no-claims discount or NCD) each year you’re insured and don’t make a claim, so it indicates to providers that you’re a low risk.
If you don’t yet have a no-claims bonus, you could opt for a telematics policy, and be rewarded for good driving!
