FOSTER CITY, California — The 2013 Ford Edge SE is the least expensive car to insure, according to a new study by Insure.com.
"In a remarkable upset this year, minivans are no longer the go-to vehicles for the best car insurance rates," the study said. "In the past, minivans have dominated our annual rankings of the 'least expensive vehicles to insure,' but in the 2013 model year, crossovers and SUVs have taken control of the top 20, including models from Ford, Jeep, Kia and Hyundai."
A single 40-year-old male with a clean driving record would pay an annual insurance premium of $1,128 to drive an Edge. Not far behind are the 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo at $1,148 and 2013 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium at $1,150.
The Kia Sportage, Jeep Patriot Sport, Chevrolet Express 500, Subaru Outback 3.6R, Hyundai Tucson GLS, Ford Explorer and Hyundai Tucson GL round out the top 10 cheapest insurance list.
The insurance for the Mercedes-Benz CL600 is nearly triple the cost of the Edge, coming in at $3,357. The CL65 AMG, S65 AMG, CL63 AMG, S600, SL63 AMG, S63 AMG and the Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S, at $2,925, round out the top 10 spots.
The Ford Edge SE list dethrones the minivan, which previously dominated the "least expensive to insure" ranking, making way for family favorite SUVs and crossovers.
