Fact: The Honda Civic has been the best-selling car in Canada for 19 consecutive years, with more than 800,000 models being sold nationwide since 2004. But according to recent sales data, the Hyundai Elantra seems to be picking up speed as it is the only vehicle listed in the top 10 whose sales grew year-over-year, while all of the others shrank.

So sure, these cars may be rising in popularity. Chances are, nowadays, if you’re not driving a Civic, you saw tens or hundreds of them on your way to work this morning. But how do these best-selling cars rank in the cost for auto insurance?

Would saving a couple hundred dollars a year in car insurance premiums help you decide on which new car to buy? Between the Volkswagen Jetta and the Ford Fusion, the difference in the average quoted premium was around $185. However, at the end of the day, car insurance rates are determined by a number of different factors.
How are auto insurance rates determined?
Whether your car is on the best-selling list or not, it’s more than just the car you drive. There are many factors to considered when calculating your rate. For example, where you live, where you drive, as well as any tickets or accidents on your record.
So before you go ahead and buy a new ride, it’s important to compare car insurance quotes first. Every person is different, so even if your neighbor drives the same vehicle as you, you may end up with a significantly different rate.
Go to RateSupermarket.ca to compare car insurance quotes and see which car will save you the most before you make your final purchase decision.
Are the car insurance rates on Kanetix.ca accurate?
Yes! The auto insurance quotes you get at Kanetix.ca come straight from the insurance companies and are the same rates you would get if you called them directly; there is no better price to be had. But remember, the rates are only as accurate as the details you provide, so if any information changes once you’re chatting with the insurance company, your rate may change too.
For example, if there’s a ticket you forgot to include, or you decide to go with a different deductible, then your auto insurance rate will likely change. The same is true too, if you choose not to bundle your home insurance but originally indicated it was something you’d consider doing. If you don’t end up getting home insurance with the company you buy your auto insurance from, then you’ll lose the multi-line discount that was originally applied to your auto insurance quote.
