Top 10 Most Expensive Hatchbacks and Wagons To Insure for 2009


The hatchback/wagon segment is home to some great automotive bargains, and the value that this category offers is a big draw for many shoppers. However, it's important to remember that insurance costs can vary quite significantly throughout the segment; if you're purchasing a hatchback or wagon with value in mind, you'll want to avoid those choices with the steepest insurance premiums.

Listed below are the 10 hatchbacks and wagons that are most expensive to insure. Some are no-brainers — it's obvious that a Mercedes or a BMW would be burdened with stiff insurance premiums. But others, like the budget-priced Scion tC, come as somewhat of a surprise.

Our rankings were determined using five-year projections of the Edmunds.com True Cost to OwnSM (TCO) pricing system. Only one appearance per model was allowed. Rankings reflect that of the trim level with the steepest projected insurance expense.
