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.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, 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.
