When it comes to picking a car, safety is usually pretty high up on the list of requirements for consumers. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the following 11 new car models made it to the top of the list in their respective categories (based on the 2008 vehicle make):

 Category  Model
Large Cars
 Acura RL
 Midsize cars  Acura TL, TSX

The type of car you drive is one of the many factors that impact your insurance rate and, in general, safer models can be less costly to insure. But a better way to reduce your insurance costs, regardless of your car’s safety profile, is to shop around. So always make sure to check out rates from competing insurers to make sure you are not overpaying.
