How a vehicle from Mitsubishi affects insurance costs
Insurance companies determine the insurance cost for a car based on safety ratings, theft rates, replacement costs and overall damage susceptibility.
Mitsubishis do well in safety tests, which helps to lower the cost of insuring one. They are also relatively affordable cars, which means replacing or repairing them isn’t too expensive — another factor working in your favour.
