When you’re shopping for a new car, there are so many things to consider. Does it fit your lifestyle? Which options do you need vs. the options you want? And of course, does it work with your budget? Part of that budget decision might also include the cost to insure it.

Determining which car brands are cheaper to insure comes down to a number of factors, including:

  • How safe is it?
  • How easy is it to steal?
  • How much will it cost to repair?

Using these criteria as a guide, our Sonnet actuarial experts have put together their list of the top 10 cheapest cars to insure in Canada*.
