Who are Vauxhall?
Founded back in 1857, Vauxhall is a proud British brand, though its parent company is now Opel — a German car firm. That’s why the Vauxhalls you see on UK roads are known as Opels across Europe.
Whether Vauxhall or Opel, the Vectra is one of the most popular cars the brand has ever made — manufactured for two decades between 1988 and 2008. You might also recognise its previous incarnation, the Vauxhall Cavalier.
While you can’t pick up a new model these days, there’s still a strong market for used Vauxhall Vectras. How much you pay for one depends on the car’s age, condition and mileage, but prices on Auto Trader suggest a starting figure of around £700 in February 2019.
Frequently asked questions
How much does a Vauxhall Vectra cost to insure?
The quote you’ll receive to insure your Vauxhall Vectra will depend on many factors. Our data indicates that Vauxhall Vectra owners were quoted, on average, £662.88** a year to insure their vehicles.
Factors that can influence how much you’ll pay for your insurance might include where you live, how old you are, and even where you park overnight. Insurance providers will gather these details, and others, before issuing you with a quote.
Your car’s insurance group is another factor which affects the cost of cover. Groups are numbered 1–50 and, as a general rule, the lower the group number, the lower your premium will be.
