A Case Study: One Driver, Six Ontario Cities And Car and Driver’s 10Best Cars

How do the best cars rank when it comes to auto insurance? InsuranceHotline set out to find out what a typical driver might find when comparing auto insurance quotes for the cars selected. We compared quotes in six Ontario cities—Ajax, Cambridge, London, Ottawa, Peterborough, and Toronto, and ranked them based on which ones look to cost less to insure than the rest:

  1. Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
  2. Volkswagen Golf
  3. Porsche Boxster
  4. Tesla Model S*
  5. Mazda 6
  6. Honda Accord
  7. Mazda 3
  8. Volkswagen GTI
  9. Cadillac CTS
  10. Ford Mustang GT
  11. BMW M235i
  12. Porsche Cayman

Bet you wouldn’t have thought that a Corvette would come out on top, but it did for our fictional 40-year-old driver with a clean driving and insurance history. It just goes to show, why comparing quotes before you buy is so important.

From the number one position to the 12th, the difference in quoted premiums is about $408. Could saving a few hundred dollars influence which new car you buy?

Find Out Which Car Offers You The Lowest Car Insurance Rate

Every person is different, so the car that costs you the least to insure may not actually be the car that costs your neighbour the least to insure. The reason is because there’s a lot that goes into determining your car insurance rate. Factors like where you live, your driving and insurance history, your driving record and the car you drive all matter, so if you’re in the market to buy one of Car and Driver’s 10Best cars, compare car insurance quotes first. It takes only a few minutes, and could save you hundreds of dollars.
