Over 20% Of Subaru WRX Owners Have Been Ticketed For Speeding

Most drivers admit to speeding, so it comes as little surprise a lot of people have tickets on their driving record.

Insurify used this information to compile a list of the vehicles with the most speeding tickets. While the study looked at over 1.6 million applications for car insurance, it found most speeders didn’t own high-performance cars. Instead, many of the models were fairly mainstream.

Without further ado, let’s jump into the numbers. Coming in first was the Subaru WRX as 20.12% of owners had at least one speeding ticket on their record. That’s nearly twice the average of 11.28%.

The second car was also sporty, but not quite a powerhouse as it’s the old Scion FR-S. 19.09% of owners have at least one speeding ticket on their record.

Continuing down the list is the Volkswagen Golf GTI. Nearly 17% of owners have been ticketed for speeding in the mild hatch which slots between the standard model and the high-performance Golf R.

Fourth place goes to a largely forgotten model, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe. While it’s been out of production for a couple of years now, 15.75% of owners have a history of speeding.

2017 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited Sahara

As we reach the halfway point, things start to take a turn as the fifth place vehicle was the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Known more for off-roading than speeding, 15.35% of owners have been ticketed in the past.

The sixth place spot also went to an unlikely suspect as the dubious honor went to the Ram 2500. It was the only pickup to crack the top ten as 15.32% owners have been caught going above and beyond – the speed limit.

Continuing the FCA streak is the Dodge Dart. While it had a relatively short life, it appears to be popular with speeders as 14.86% owners have a violation on their record.

The only luxury vehicle on the list was the old Infiniti G37. It came in 8th as 14.72% of owners have a speeding ticket.

While the WRX came in first, the closely related Subaru Impreza was a bit further behind in 9th place. 14.66% of owners have a speeding ticket on their record, nearly a quarter less than the WRX.

Rounding out the top ten is the Hyundai Veloster. It was slightly behind the Impreza as 14.48% of owners have a need for speed.

    Odd, no Corvettes or Mustangs???

    • Dude

      Mostly owned by old people

      • ChicagoBlah

        well you do see a lot of teens and college kids in older model Mustangs, Corvette’s definitely not, you have to be at least 50 to drive a vette. It’s defined by pop culture as the midlife crisis car.

    • Bo Hanan

      You have to get to the street without crashing to even make the study. LOL.

  • Dude

    I just bought a GTI and I’m definitely going to get some tickets

  • Bo Hanan

    is this news?

  • no25

    ALL douche bag cars. No surprise here.

  • dumblikeyou2

    Like people, certain car models are picked on just because of their appearance alone. Funny though, I’ve alway said for a long time that I rarely see a WRX or STi going very fast or having any fun. Those owners seem to baby their cars.

    PS: the Infiniti G37 has become a total pimp-ghetto car.

    • ChicagoBlah

      In Colorado all I see are people driving like Fast & Furious in their WRX’s, usually with horrible sounding exhausts. This, the genesis, FRS and the g37 are all popular with college age kids.

      The g37 definitely takes the cake in db territory though.

  • Alduin

    Insurance rates are also high because sone kids buy them with their parents money and crash them.

  • Wandering_Spirit

    It’s not surprising. I’d get tickets too with that thing. They are actually driveable in a spirited way, as it should be. Sometimes, it’s worth a ticket.
