How much is the difference in price for an insurance group 6 and group 11 vehicle?

How much is the difference in price for an insurance group 6 and group 11 vehicle? The cars I'm looking at are the 2015 Citroen C1 1.2 PureTech Flair and the Vauxhall Corsa 2015 1.4 ecoFLEX Sting?

It's hard to say, as the NCAP ratings also come into it. The difference on the vehicle you have quoted will come down to cost to repair after an accident and likelyhood of being involved in an accident. It shows the opaqueness of insurance underwriting because the Corsa has more power, a larger engine, both are NCAP 4 - but because the Corsa is a lower insurance group, I would expect both cars to be very similar in quotes to be obtained. The price difference in a group 6 to 11 is negligible. It is all the other factors added to the car grouping that affects the premium on the grouping.

Cheap to run with zero tax on all models. Improved interior quality and refinement over previous C1. Available with retractable fabric roof. Decent at motorway speeds.
Much improved over previous Corsa. Better quality interior with a more upmarket feel. Impressive for around town.
