How a vehicle from Lexus affects insurance costs
Insurance companies look at a car’s safety ratings, its likelihood of being stolen and how costly it is to replace or repair, among other factors, when calculating the cost of your premiums.
Lexus vehicles’ excellent safety ratings and the fact that they aren’t commonly targeted by thieves help to bring down the cost of insurance compared with other luxury car marques. However, because a Lexus is considered a luxury car and has a higher price tag, your premium is likely to be higher than with a lower-priced vehicle.
