There are many costs to consider when you’re shopping for a new car, and insurance is one that can be pretty significant, depending on your circumstances. While it’s impossible to say how much a particular car will cost to insure for a specific person, we can at least tell you which ones cost the least to insure in the first place. All sorts of things affect how much you’ll have to pay, including your age, your gender, where you live, and your previous driving and insurance records. However, at least knowing which models are the most inexpensive to insure from the start could save you wasting time looking in the wrong place from the get-go.
It’s fairly obvious that certain types of vehicle will be cheaper to insure than others, which is why nine out of the ten models on this list compiled by Insure.com website are SUVs and minivans that are largely aimed at the family-buyer.

Honda Odyssey LX
The 2016 Honda Odyssey LX has the least-expensive insurance cost of any vehicle in the U.S. this year with Insure.com saying it has an average annual premium of $1,113. The Odyssey is pretty stylish for a minivan and it isn’t exactly lacking in power either thanks to its 3.5-liter V-6 engine that produces 248 horsepower and 250 lb.-ft. of torque.

Honda CR-V LX
The fact the CR-V LX has an average insurance premium of $1,170 is just one of many admirable qualities that should encourage you to take a serious look at this Honda. The CR-V has been the biggest-selling SUV in America for many years now, and it’s not difficult to understand why.

Dodge Grand Caravan
The first non-Honda on the list is the Dodge Grand Caravan, coming in at number 3 with an average annual insurance premium of $1,174. The Grand caravan represents outstanding value for money in the minivan segment, although its crash-test results are not quite up to the levels of some of its rivals.
[nextpage title=”Jeep Patriot” ]
The Jeep Patriot is a cost-conscious option for those that want something that’s pretty cool, cheap to insure, and isn’t a minivan. The Patriot has an average annual insurance premium of $1,180 and sits in the middle ground of the SUV market between the Honda CR-V and the likes of the Kia Soul and Nissan Juke.

Jeep Wrangler Sport
With one of the most iconic shapes of any vehicle in the world, the Jeep Wrangler in its Sport trim level is also encouragingly inexpensive to insure. Insure.com quotes the average annual premium for this legendary SUV as currently being just $1 more than the Patriot at £1,181.
[nextpage title=”Jeep Compass” ]
If you’re a fan of the brand but you don’t fancy the Patriot or the Wrangler, another Jeep makes it onto the list at number 6 in the form of the Compass Sport. Its 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine produces a lively 158 horsepower and it has styling reminiscent of a baby Grand Cherokee, although its average insurance premium will be considerably less at just $1,190.
[nextpage title=”Ford Escape S” ]
Ford Escape S
Like most compact crossover SUVs, the Ford Escape is really more of a tall wagon than a true SUV. However, there’s little to complain about with this excellent Ford, least of all its average annual premium of $1,194.

Buick Encore Sport Tour
The Buick Encore almost had the small crossover segment to its self when it was launched in 2013 as one of the first of its kind. The market quickly caught-on and now it faces tough competition from the likes of the Trax, Renegade, 500X, and HR-V. However, it beats those rivals with an average insurance premium of $1,200.
[nextpage title=”Jeep Cherokee Sport” ]
Jeep Cherokee Sport
That’s right, another Jeep on the list making the U.S. brand the dominant force for cheap insurance in 2016 with 40 percent of the top-ten list from Insure.com. The Cherokee Sport falls nicely between being city-friendly crossover and a proper off-roader, and has a very acceptable annual insurance premium of $1,203.
[nextpage title=”Nissan Frontier S King Cab” ]
Nissan Frontier S King Cab
If you’re in the market for a pickup, the Nissan Frontier S King Cab combines the practicality and flexibility of a midsize pickup with great value for money and low insurance costs. It’s been around for a while now, but its average premium of just $1,204 could help you get past its slightly ageing looks.
