Because car insurance is a requirement and none of us can drive without it, we need to know what cars are going to help us by offering an ease of coverage. It’s never been a secret that as the horsepower and performance of a vehicle increases so does the car insurance rate making it very expensive to drive a high powered performance car such as many sports cars. Some cars are a lot easier to cover than others and the most affordable vehicles to insure offer plenty of excellent safety features and a mild mannered demeanor on the road.
In order to make this a fair comparison the rates from several carriers were taken into account to create an average for a forty year old man with the same coverage across the board. With this information taken into account, here are the ten cheapest vehicles to insure for 2015.
