These Are The 25 Cheapest Cars To Insure In The United States

Car insurance premiums in the U.S. have risen by 33 percent between 2010 and 2016, adding a sizable burden to car owners, especially if they’re also paying off a car loan.

Insurance premiums depend on many factors, including the driver’s age, driving record and location. Another big factor is, of course, the type of the vehicle.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety collects data on insurance claim frequency and insurance cost per vehicle. On average, insurance companies make claim payments of around $900 per vehicle, with some claiming more than double this amount.

24/7 Wall St. gathered the data of the 25 cars from 2014 to 2016 model years with the lowest annual payouts. The following are the cars included in that list, in reverse order.

        Exactly

    • Dubble Bubble

      Just for the record, the pic in #12 isn’t a convertible.

      • Honda NSX-R

        This is probably something that should be noticed when reading this list

      • Alfa Giulia QV

        I noticed that too. Why they decided to use the Grand Sport is beyond me. It’s nice, but I’m not sure about the red, white, and blue color scheme though.
