The following are some of the key factors in setting your insurance premium:
- The type of vehicle you drive
- Your driving and insurance history
- Where you live and the length of your commute
- Any other drivers on your policy
- Discounts you may qualify for
As most people may know, the type of vehicle you drive plays a huge role in the price you pay for car insurance. Vehicles that are more expensive to repair or have statistically high theft rates will most likely cost more to insure.
This is why Windsor drivers should consider the price of insurance, or at least take a look at Insurance Bureau of Canada’s annual list of the most stolen cars in Canada, before committing to a new vehicle.
Fortunately, the vehicles that Windsor drivers reportedly drive the most (based on quotes completed on Kanetix.ca over the last year), didn’t make the last list. In fact, the Ram pickup truck – a Windsor favourite – was recently voted Best Pickup Truck according to the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada Best New Vehicles list. It was also the second most-sold pickup truck in 2017 in Canada.
Here are the 10 most driven cars in the Windsor area:
- Honda Civic
- Ford Focus
- Dodge Grand Caravan
- Dodge Ram
- Chevrolet Cruze
- Ford Escape
- Toyota Corolla
- Ford Fusion
- Dodge Journey
- Hyundai Elantra

How to lower your car insurance rate if you’re in Windsor
There are some things you can do to save on your car insurance, but not all factors are within your control. In Ontario, auto insurance rates are regulated by the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO), which processes all rate change requests from insurers. FSCO announces any rate changes quarterly, and from time-to-time, rates do go up. Insurers request rate increases sometimes because they’ve received a number of expensive claims that need to be paid out. And while you personally can’t do anything about rate changes approved by FSCO, Windsor drivers should counteract by shopping around when rates go up in Ontario. Car insurance shouldn’t be one of those things you look at once when you first buy your vehicle, but instead requires an annual shop-around to ensure you’re always getting the best deal. To keep up with the ongoing rate changes, make sure you compare quotes from the over 50 insurance providers at Kanetix.ca every time rates change, or at minimum, when you’re getting ready to renew your policy.
Here are some other ways to ensure you’re getting the cheapest rate for your Windsor car insurance:
- Ask about discounts. The most common insurance discounts are multi-vehicle discounts, multi-line (or bundle) discounts, and winter tire discounts. But there are many other discounts, such as good student discounts, low mileage discounts, and retiree discounts that you could qualify for too. Talk to your insurance company about the discounts offered in Windsor to lower your rate.
- Regularly review your policy to see if there are any coverages you may no longer need. For example, if you drive an older vehicle, you may decide that you no longer need collision or comprehensive coverages.
- You may also want to make changes to your deductible, depending on your circumstances. If you’re sure that you’re in the position to cover the costs of a potential claim, raising your deductible can actually save you a lot of money since it takes some of the financial responsibility off of your insurer.
