So what makes a vehicles more or less expensive to insure?

“There are a variety of factors, but the most important are the value of the vehicle and the vehicle model’s loss history,” InsWeb said in a statement. “A vehicle’s value directly impacts what an insurance company will need to pay out in the event of a total loss. It’s therefore not surprising that the majority of the vehicles on the most-expensive-to-insure list cost at least $40,000.”
