As we are only a few weeks into the new year (2011), consumers are already in full swing of the car buying season and in keeping with the buying a new or used car theme, today I wanted to address the insurance part of buying a new car.
Now I have to say that while the most expensive cars do appear on this list, keep in mind that the least expensive cars also appear as well and if you use this information for your next car buying experience, you should have a general idea of how much flexibility there could be in your new car insurance bill for that next major purchase.
The list also allows us car enthusiasts to dream about buying that amazing dream machine and of course get slapped down a little on the insurance price.
The most expensive 2011 vehicles to insure have to start with a Mercedes SL65 AMG roadster that could come in at an annual cost of $3,544 for a clean driver. However as a car guy who does like to think about owning a dream machine, I particularly love #8, the Porsche 911 Carrera S. I always seem to love Porsche’s, but I’m surprised not to see a Ferrari or Lambo on this list.
1. Mercedes SL65 AMG for $3,544
2. BMW 750i for $3,281
3. BMW 750Li for $3,281
4. Mercedes SLSL63 AMG for $3,263
5. Mercedes S65 AMG for $3,221
6. Aston Martin DB9 for $3,120
7. Mercedes CL600 for $3,114
8. Porsche 911 Carrera S for $3,092
9. Aston Martin DB9 Volante for $3,089
10. Mercedes G55 AMG for $3,086
After the shock wears off from the list above, for many of today’s consumers looking to buy a new car, the list below especially for those families looking for a Minivan to drive around in, you will find this list to be more on the realistically side of life.
The least expensive 2011 vehicles to insure have to start with a Chrysler Town & Country LX that could come in an annual cost of $1,092 for a clean driver. Personally for me though, I was surprised to see the 6th car to appear on this list, a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport that comes in at a reasonable annual cost of $1,131 considering it’s a four door popular Wrangler with 4x4 and they do go off-road.
1. Chrysler Town & Country LX for $1,092
2. Toyota Sienna 4 Cylinder for $1,101
3. Toyota Sienna LE for $1,108
4. Honda Odyssey LX for $1,115
5. Nissan Murano SL for $1,128
6. Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport for $1,131
7. Honda Odyssey EX for $1,138
8. Toyota Sienna 6 Cylinder for $1,143
9. Ford Escape XLS for $1,150
10. Toyota Highlander for $1,154
What a list on either side of the fence, but one this is for sure, whether you’re looking to buy a dream machine or an everyday driver on a budget, this list should give you a general concept of just what you might be paying for your next new car purchase.
