Last week we counted down the top five most expensive cars to insure, but insuring your ride doesn’t have to break the bank. In the interest of fairness, here are the top five least expensive cars to insure. Combine these practical rides with Kenneth Bieber’s New York car insurance and getting on the road will be a breeze!
1. Ford Edge SE: According to Insure.com, the most affordable car to insure in 2012 is the Ford Edge SE, a workhorse of an SUV that combines space and efficiency with, apparently, affordable insurance premiums at $1,128 a year.
2. Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo: The Grand Cherokee has been a staple of the Jeep line since its debut in 1992, and when it only costs an average of $1,148 a year to insure, you can see why it has remained so popular.
3. Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium: Laugh if you must, but Subaru owners know their cars are dependable as they are silly looking. No surprise, then, the Outback only costs $1,150 a year to insure.
4. Kia Sportage: This compact crossover SUV has been around since 1993, an efficient, practical and not unattractive option for families or anyone else who could use the space but wants to avoid going full gas-guzzler. Plus, you can cover it for about $1,157 annually.
5. Jeep Patriot Sport: It’s probably the least-expensive SUV in America, so it’s no surprise it doesn’t cost much to insure. You can cover this car for $1,160 a year.
