Least Expensive Cars to Insure

June 22, 2017

When selecting a vehicle, there are so many things to consider -- price, fuel economy, safety ratings, how the vehicle handles. Because of all that goes into making a decision, sometimes it's easy to forget about other aspects of car ownership, such as needing to have your car insured. Some cars can be way more costly than their competition. recently released their list of the most and least expensive vehicles to insure in 2017 based on the average auto insurance rates for 2017 models from six large insurance carriers. The Honda Odyssey LX was once again named the least expensive vehicle to insure, followed by the Jeep Renegade Sport and Jeep Wrangler Black Bear. And on the most expensive list, the Mercedes AMG GT, Dodge GT Viper, Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG made up the top three.

If you're considering any of these vehicles, I recommend using TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to see the lowest prices being offered in your area.
