When it comes to auto insurance, speed costs.
The most expensive 2015 vehicle to insure in the U.S. is Nissan Motor Co.’s 600-horsepower, $150,000 GT-R Nismo, at an average of $3,574 a year, Insure.com said Tuesday. The 621-horsepower Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG convertible and the 645-horsepower Dodge SRT Viper held the next two spots.
The rankings are based on national averages for 1,522 models for a 40-year-old man with a clean driving record and good credit. Prices were from six large insurers: Allstate, Farmers, Geico, Nationwide, Progressive and State Farm.
The lowest-cost vehicle is Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV’s four-wheel-drive Jeep Wrangler Sport at $1,134. Another Jeep model, the two-wheel-drive Patriot Sport, was second least expensive, followed by Honda Motor Co.’s four-wheel-drive CR-V LX sport utility vehicle.
