What would the difference in insurance rates be between a Toyota Corolla and a Ford Focus?

"I'm 16 and an honor student. I'm going to be getting a new car. Would a Toyota Corolla or a Ford Focus be cheaper to insure?"

“The cost of car insurance depends on a variety of factors. While types of vehicles can impact rates, there are other factors that also influence rates. Since you are a young driver, your insurance is going to be significantly higher regardless of what vehicle you choose.
The best thing to do is look at insurance rates with a few different carriers. You’ll want to look at prices for each vehicle, including the coverages you need.
You’ll also want to see which carriers offer discounts for students. Since you are an honor student, many carriers offer discounts for good students. This can help offset the increased rate due to your age.
The easiest way to search for cheap rates is to request car insurance quotes online and see what your options are.”
