Hondas Top This New List of the Least Expensive Cars to Insure

Did you know bright red cars have higher insurance premiums than the same model in a less exciting blue or black? Trick question! That’s a myth. As lots of auto insurance companies will be quick to tell you, the color of your vehicle has absolutely no bearing on how much you’ll pay to insure it.

So how insurance companies decide how much to charge you? The basics are common knowledge — a newer, faster, or more expensive vehicle will cost more to insure than an older, less expensive one. Your driving record and claims history obviously affect the cost as well. But even taking all that into account, certain makes and models will get you a better deal on your insurance than others, because they’re recognized as being reliable, safe, and relatively easy and cheap to fix. Recently, Mercury Insurance released their top ten list of these vehicles, and it looks like good news for Honda buyers: Three out of their top four models to save money on car insurance are Hondas.
