Insure.com Names Low Cost Car Insurance Award Winners

May 27, 2010

Insure.com named two domestic and two foreign vehicles to top its list of the least expensive 2010 vehicles to insure. Insure.com honored the vehicles selected from among four categories - cars, SUVs, vans and trucks - with its Low Cost Car Insurance Award.

The top vehicles in each segment were:

• Cars: Dodge Caliber 4-door hatchback

• SUVs: Mazda Tribute i 2WD 4-door Utility

• Vans: Honda Odyssey LX 5-door 2WD

• Trucks: GMC Canyon WT 2WD 2-door 2.9L

The annual awards honor vehicles that are the cheapest to insure, based on a survey of average car insurance rates for more than 2,400 vehicles for the 2010 model year.

To arrive at the average premiums, Insure.com commissioned a study from Quadrant Information Services that calculated the average annual premiums for a male driver using car insurance rates from six large insurers in 10 ZIP codes per state.

Averages are based on a single 40-year-old male driver who commutes 12 miles to work, with policy limits of 100/300/50 ($100,000 for injury liability for one person, $300,000 for all injuries and $50,000 for property damage in an accident) and a $500 deductible on collision and comprehensive coverage. He has a clean driving record and good credit. The policy includes uninsured motorist coverage. Average annual rates are for comparative purposes; consumer's actual rate will depend on his or her personal factors.
