With a history spanning almost 40 years, the Vauxhall Corsa remains as popular as ever among UK drivers.

Though it’s seen plenty of changes in that time, its compact dimensions and affordable price tag has kept it near the top of annual sales listings* for more than a decade.

Introducing the Vauxhall Corsa

  • The original model arrived on UK shores in 1983, a year later than in continental Europe. It initially took the name ‘Nova’, as it was considered that Corsa sounded too much like ‘coarser’, which could carry negative connotations.
  • As of 2019, there have been six generations of the Vauxhall Corsa, the latest being known as the ‘Corsa F’.
  • The latest generation is the first to feature an all-electric edition, while a much more efficient line up of petrol and diesel engine options have been introduced.

Insurance groups and tax bands for Vauxhall Corsa models

Insurers look at lots of information when calculating a fair price for your cover. This often includes factors like your age and where you live, and some providers may also consider the ‘insurance group’ of the vehicle you’d like insured. These are bandings from 1-50 that reflect the costs and risks associated with each model of car, with those in higher groups sometimes facing larger premiums.

Another cost to consider is your road tax. This also uses a banding system, under which models that emit more CO2 are charged more annually.

Insurance groups and tax bands for some leading editions of the Vauxhall Corsa are:

Model Insurance Group Tax Band
Vauxhall Corsa Hatchback 1.2 Life 3d 2 D
Vauxhall Corsa Hatchback Active 1.2 Sting 5d 2 D
Vauxhall Corsa Hatchback 1.4 Life 5d 6 D
