Least Expensive Cars to Insure
April 4, 2019When 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.
Insure.com recently released their list of the most and least expensive vehicles to insure in 2019 based on the average auto insurance rates for 2019 models from six large insurance carriers. The Honda Odyssey LX was once again named the least expensive vehicle to insure, followed by the Jeep Wrangler Sport and Subaru Outback 2.5i. And on the most expensive list, the Nissan GT-R, Mercedes Maybach S650, and Porsche Panamera made up the top three.
If you're considering any of these vehicles, I recommend using TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to see the lowest prices being offered in your area.
