Hyundai is a known brand and car entity that is both reliable and safe for consumers who shell out the money to purchase one. Consumer’s Report says that Hyundai's vehicles are good all-around performers, with simple controls, impressive fit and finish, and helpful features.
In terms of safety features, Hyundai offers a range of advanced technologies across its vehicle lineup. These may include advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) such as forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, and rearview cameras. These features aim to enhance driver and passenger safety by mitigating the risk of accidents and minimizing the severity of potential collisions.
Insurance companies will consider all of these factors when determining rates. They will look at the so-called “moral risk,” or risk that an individual brings, and the “physical risk,” which is based on the degree of damage sustained by a car and its repair costs.
The Canadian Loss Experience Automobile Ratings (CLEAR) system is a way to evaluate how likely certain cars will be involved in a claim and the associated costs with it.
CLEAR is based on historical insurance claims data. It assigns a score on how much claims usually cost based on make and model and how likely a car will be the subject of a claim.
A particular Hyundai may cost more but could have a lower CLEAR rating, which might translate into a lower rate.
Under the CLEAR system, the benchmark score is 100. Therefore, a score of 122 is 22% above average, and 87 is 13% below the average. Lower scores generally translate into lower auto insurance premiums.
Since there are fewer accident claims than ones for car damage, according to the Insurance Bureau of Canada, scores for accident benefits claims are represented by colour only. The chart below outlines the grading system for accident benefits claims.
