10. 2009 Ford Fusion: $2,890

Insurance isn’t kind to teenage drivers. Rates are usually double the price of experienced drivers. Luckily CarInsure.com has provided a list of the top 10 best vehicles to insure for teenagers. 

The rates are calculated based on a Washington family: a married couple driving a 2011 Honda Accord and a 2009 Chevrolet Traverse, with a clean driving record and good credit. Their teenage driver is a 16-year-old male, also with a clean driving record. This list covers a five-year insurance impact. The vehicles on this list are from 2008, or 2009.

Tenth on the list is the 2009 Ford Fusion, equipped with ESC. This car gains its price thanks to a perfect NHTSA front impact score and the highest score possible for frontal-offset and side impact tests from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The key to this model though is the optional electronic stability control.

    Notice that they ALL have four doors. if you buy the same Civic, ACCord, etc, in a 2-door coupe, the insurance will likely double! Insurance Co’s like to call them “sports cars”!

    Is the Fusion really number 10 or should the 5-year cost actually be $2,980?

  • Turd Fergeson

    I don’t know why anyone would want just 2 doors anyway, so double-win!  Affordable 2-door coupes are tacky. It serves them right for masquerading about as sports cars.

    Having just looked at Honda Civics, Accords and the CRV (all used), the CRV was the cheapest to insure, followed by the Accord and then the Civic.  We called our agent at the dealership to see which would be cheapest, bout a $900 difference from CRV to Civic.

    Useless article is useless. Your average teenager wouldn’t come close to being able to afford these cars, and the ones that can are the spoiled brats with parents that are loaded, and those types of people won’t give two shits about insurance costs.
