Which cars are the most stolen in the U.S.? And are these cars more expensive to insure?
I'm in the market for a new car and I want to buy one that's cheaper to insure. Are commonly stolen cars more expensive to insure?
“The most stolen vehicles in the U.S. are primarily sedans, but it depends on your location and which makes and models are favored by car thieves in the area.
Generally across the USA these include:
- Honda Accord
- Honda Civic
- Ford F-Series Full-Size Pickup
- Chevrolet Full-Size Pickup
- Toyota Camry
- Dodge Ram Full-Size Pickup
- Toyota Corolla
- Nissan Altima
- Dodge Caravan
- Chevrolet Impala
Cars that are commonly targeted by thieves are more expensive to insure, and your rates will reflect this if you drive one of these vehicles.
These are great cars, though, and despite the effect of theft on insurance rates, they are still cheap cars to insure. There are many factors that go into calculating rates. Cars with high safety ratings, which many of the cars listed above have, will carry lower insurance rates because of they’re increased safety.
