How a Volvo 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 Volvo’s great safety ratings help to bring down the cost of insuring one. But you can expect to pay more if you own one of the higher-end Volvos.
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.
With Volvo’s impeccable record of safety, insurance companies love insuring the manufacturer’s vehicles. You’ll probably have little trouble finding an insurance policy.
