What SUVs Cost The Most To Insure?

Posted on July 15, 2009

Insure.com researches insurance rates for common chauffeured and luxury SUVs as well as economical compacts and family vehicles.

Results from research by Insure.com reveal the most and least expensive SUVs and minivans to insure. 

Insure.com calculated average car insurance premiums for almost 300 vehicles, including SUVs and minivans, for model year 2009. 

Topping the "most expensive to insure" list for SUVs is the Mercedes-Benz G-Class. With a retail price tag around $100,000, the G-Class is equipped with a standard V8, 382-horsepower engine and a 7-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. Its national average annual premium is $2,088. Compare that to the lowest-premium SUV, the Hyundai Santa Fe, at $832, and you can see how your car choice can deliver a surprising insurance bill.

Low insurance rates reflect fewer and less-expensive insurance claims from drivers of the vehicles. 

"If you're looking to get the lowest car insurance price possible, these rankings can point you in the direction of vehicles that can help you get there," said Amy Danise, editor of Insure.com. "Shopping around is the No. 1 easiest way to lower your rate. Other big factors include maintaining a good driving history and credit record."
