These cars are tops with drivers in Nova Scotia, but which cost less (or more) to insure?

Have you ever gone up to the wrong car in a parking lot thinking it's yours, and in your search find four others that look just like yours? If so, chances are that you drive one of Canada's top selling cars. Their affordability, reliability, and sometimes high resale value all add to their popularity. Whether your car is on the top 10 list or not, the car you drive has an important impact on the insurance rate you end up paying. This is one reason why you should know how various cars compare when it comes time to buy that new vehicle.

So what are the top-selling cars in Canada?

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

  1. Ford F-150

  3. Honda Civic
  4. Dodge Caravan
  5. Dodge Ram
  6. Mazda's Mazda3
  7. Ford Escape
  8. Toyota Corolla

The Nova Scotia auto insurance difference

Nova Scotia auto insurance companies rate cars based on the claim history of that vehicle. They look at things like accident frequency, repair costs, theft, vandalism and safety ratings for each make and model. The less money insurance companies have to pay in claims for a particular car, the less expensive that car is likely to insure.

Whether you drive a top ten car or not, every car has its own history -- insurance history that is. This is just one of the reasons why it is so important to compare car insurance quotes before you purchase your next car -- and every year at renewal time. Car insurance rates are constantly changing. Your current insurer may not offer you the best rate consecutively. While there is a large amount of wide ranging premiums available out there for almost the same coverage, the only way to know whether you are paying more for your coverage with one company rather than another is by comparing insurance quotes. Are you getting the best possible price?
