We pulled car insurance quotes from top insurance companies to find that the average monthly cost to insure a Subaru can range from $108 to $199 — or, between $1,296 and $2,388 annually. However, your actual costs depend on your driving history, vehicle model and year, ZIP plus other factors.

How a vehicle from Subaru affects the cost of insurance
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.
A Subaru’s good safety ratings, affordable price tag and low theft rates help to lower the cost of 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 roles.

New Subarus built in 2000 or newer get free roadside assistance for up to three years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. The Subaru roadside assistance service includes:
