How a vehicle from Nissan affects insurance costs

Insurance companies look at several car-related factors when determining the cost of insurance, including the car’s safety ratings, its likelihood of being stolen, and replacement costs and overall damage susceptibility.

Nissans’ good safety ratings make them affordable to insure. However, some models’ higher-than-average theft rates negatively impact the cost of car insurance.

Other factors that affect the cost of insurance include the model, mileage and trim package. Personal factors like your driving history, credit score and age also play a role.

About the Nissan brand

Based in Yokohama, Japan’s second-largest city, Nissan manufactures vehicles from budget-priced family cars to extravagant performance machines. Founded in 1933, the company distributes cars branded with Nissan, Infiniti and Datsun logos.

Nissan is the sixth-largest auto manufacturer by production, behind Ford and GM but ahead of Honda. It also distributes the world’s number-two bestselling electric car, the Leaf.

Nissan car facts

  • Nissan sells cars along a spectrum of price points. You’ll find budget models like the Versa ($11,990 MSRP), for example, as well as high-priced options like the GT-R ($109,990 MSRP).
  • The Nissan Altima is the sixth-most-stolen vehicle in the United States, according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau. The Maxima is also frequently targeted by car thieves.
  • Nissans typically score good crash ratings across the board from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). This helps to lower insurance costs. Some models score less than “Good” ratings in driver-side crash protection: For example, the Frontier gets a “Marginal” rating and the Leaf gets a “Poor” rating.

What is NissanConnect?

Bottom line

You’re likely to find affordable car insurance for your Nissan, barring any personal hiccups like a poor driving record or bad credit. But be sure to shop around to find the best car insurance for you.
