Top 20 Cheapest Cars to Insure for 2011

January 20, 2011

car insuranceThe price of your new car is only one factor when it comes to the overall cost.

Many people forget about costs such as insurance, fuel, depreciation, and repairs.

Over the life of your vehicle, these costs usually end up being more than what you originally paid for the car - so it pays to do some research before you buy.

Insure.com has just released their list of the cheapest cars to insure for 2011.

Minivans, compact crossovers, and SUVs top the list for the cheapest cars to insure while sports cars and luxury cars are the most expensive.

The main factors that affect the cost of insurance include the cost of repair, the typical driving behavior of owners for that particular car, and overall safety.

It's not surprising that minivans such as the Chrysler Town & Country made it to the top of the list.

Here are the top 20 cheapest cars to insure for 2011:

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
