It's no accident that the best-selling cars in Canada for 2016 are also inexpensive to insure. This may very well be one of the many qualities that has made them so popular. After all, everyone likes to save money when it comes to car insurance.
The top four best-selling cars for 2016, according to GoodCarBadCar.net, also appear on another list. These vehicles all rank among the top 10 "Least Expensive Top-Selling Cars to Insure" featured on InsuranceHotline.com.
Best-Selling Cars that are Inexpensive to Insure
Of course, the best-selling vehicle in Canada for 2016 was once again the Ford F-150 pickup truck. But when it comes to cars, these options proved to be the most popular among buyers.
And not only are they cheaper to insure, but each of them can be purchased new for less than $30,000. If you want to save even more money, recent models of these cars can be purchased as certified pre-owned vehicles.
1) The Honda Civic
There are several reasons why the Honda Civic ranks number one with Canadian drivers. For a compact car, it's pretty roomy and offers a large amount of cargo space. The 2017 Civic is also equipped with a cabin that features high-quality materials often found in pricier vehicles. And with "excellent" CEPA-estimated fuel economy and safety ratings, it's almost hard to believe that the Civic is fun to drive too. With its crisp handling and smooth ride, the Civic may be practical, but it's hardly boring.
2) The Hyundai Elantra
The Elantra has been redesigned for 2017. Everything that drivers have loved about the Elantra is still there. But this compact car now comes with more user-friendly tech features and available advanced safety technology. The 2017 Elantra still offers a lot of room for its class, as well as comfortable seats and "good" CEPA-estimated fuel economy. All of this added to Hyundai's 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty equals a very good value.
3) The Toyota Corolla
Toyota sells over a million Corollas worldwide every year, and it's easy to see why. This compact car's predicted reliability rating is almost off the charts. It also comes standard with more advanced safety features than any other vehicle in its class. In addition, you can expect the Corolla to deliver comfy seating and "good" CEPA-estimated fuel economy. Similar vehicles may be more fun to drive, but the Corolla rules when it comes to being a sensible choice for everyday driving.
4) The Chevrolet Cruze
If you're looking for the perfect commuter car, the 2017 Cruze may offer everything on your list. It comes standard with one of the best infotainment systems on the market. So you should be well-entertained even if you have to spend more time than you'd like to on the 401. Also, like the other compact cars on this list, the Cruze is surprisingly roomy. You can pack everything you'll need for your day in its large trunk and enjoy a smooth ride all the way to wherever you're going.
Just remember that even though these vehicles are, on average, cheaper than most to insure, rates can vary widely. Make sure to check with your provider in order to get an exact estimate of how much your policy will cost.
