Knowledge is power and finding cheap cars to insure is a skill that can be learned. One of the major things that affects your car insurance premium is the car you are insuring. All cars are made different and all have their own things that can make car insurance cost more or less. There are also other factors that go into that and you can read about that on out car insurance information page which will give you a nice summary about car insurance.

Safety rating is one of the things the car insurance companies look at. Some cars are safer than others, some are larger and heavier than other as well which makes them create more damage when they are involved in an accident. More powerful cars and most imported cars are also more expensive to insure because powerful cars like to go fast and create more crashes, most european cars parts are more expensive than domestic so that is another one to check for. This is why you want to make sure you know what to look for when buying a new car. It’s not all about the look, horses and comfort level, insurance costs area a big one to consider. So with that let’s take a look at the top 10 cars that made it on the cheapest insurance list. Most of this information is coming from the testing that Insure.com did with over 900 cars.

I am still amazed at how this Jeep is cheaper to insure than something like a Honda Civic or a Ford Fiesta. This is a nice looking jeep, a little weak being a 4-cylinder but you know what that tells the insurance agent, it says “I’m a careful driver and am not in a great hurry to get anywhere really”, and that’s what gets you the nice low insurance cost.
