The type and model of the car can determine the insurance cost of insuring a car. In reading this, I was thinking that the Chinese car is likey what we all should be considering — light weight and energy efficient. I see this in my neighborhood too— I live near public housing that has parking lots and you will see some EXPENSIVE cars in the lots.
The totally redesigned 2016 Chevrolet Spark in some ways attempts to out-Versa the Versa, albeit in a smaller hatchback package. In our example, Honda cars generally have higher residuals (future resale values) than Fords, which makes Honda the cheapest to lease, even if the cars are the same price. The 2016 Chevrolet Sonic is an interesting alternative to the Spark for Bowtie-fans who need more interior room.
If you go looking for the $12,780 2014 Nissan Versa sedan that went on sale Tuesday as America’s lowest-price new car, good luck. The Yaris makes do with a 1.5-liter, 106-horsepower four-cylinder engine, and a five-speed manual is also along for the ride in L edition of the car. The Z was one of the first popular Japanese sports cars in America, offering performance, comfort, style, and reliability. Any of the cars on this list would not keep their occupants safe in the event of a severe head on crash with a larger vehicle.

Perhaps overshadowed by its luxury sedan brother, the Genesis Coupe is a surprisingly fun and capable sports car in its own right. We decided to use our data to understand which cars break down the most and have the highest maintenance costs. Though redesigned for this year, the 2016 smart fortwo is still somewhat of a polarizing car. While luxury cars call for the most expensive maintenance, many budget vehicles rank relatively high. Scion and Lexus, the second and third most inexpensive brands, are both made by Toyota. With a starting price of under $20,000, the Prius is one of the most affordable hybrid cars to get into.
Though the 2016 Kia Soul edges over our desired $15,000 price point, it may still be worth the splurge.

Standard equipment for the vehicle includes fog lamps, keyless entry, a security alarm, front SRS airbags, power features, 13-inch alloy wheels, ABS, EBD and fabric covered seats. Hence, better and optimized safety standards makes the car insurance inexpensive.
