New Brunswick drivers love these cars, but which cost less (or more) to insure?

Ever try finding your car in a parking lot, and find four of the same model before you found your own? If you answered yes, you could very well be driving one of Canada's top-selling cars. Due to their affordability, reliability, and perhaps high resale value--these cars are quite popular across Canada. But did you know that the car you drive directly affects the rate you pay for your insurance? This is why you should be aware of how they compare when it comes to car insurance.

Some reports have Canada's 2010's top-selling vehicles as the:

  1. Ford F-150
  2. GM Silverado/Sierra
  3. Honda Civic
  4. Dodge Caravan
  5. Dodge Ram
  6. Mazda's Mazda3
  7. Ford Escape
  8. Toyota Corolla
  9. Hyundai Elantra
  10. Hyundai Sante Fe
Chances are you either drive one of these cars already, know someone that does, or at the very least recognize every model. So how do they do with respect to car insurance rates?
