As my twelve year old gets closer to driving age, I’m beginning to think about the future. In four short years, he will be wanting to get behind the wheel of a car and we’ll be looking for a deal on car insurance. The problem is that young male drivers are known for driving fast and having accidents. So, their insurance premiums are going to be expensive. However, I learned today that the premium doesn’t have to be outrageous—especially if you choose the right car. According to 4AutoInsuranceQuote.org, the Volvo XC90 is the least expensive vehicle to insure in the United States.
You are always hearing about how safe Volvos are, and they definitely live up to the hype. The Insurance Institute For Highway Safety (IIHS) gave this SUV perfect marks in all categories of testing. This isn’t uncommon for many cars but the XC90 has received perfect ratings dating all the way back to 2003.
When considering a car for a new driver, you might first consider something small and economical. That would make sense if your only concern is saving money at the gas pump. That cute little convertible might be easy on gas, but what if your monthly insurance premiums are as much as the monthly car payment? Yikes! Another thing to consider is the safety of the occupants. When you are trapped between two semis on the highway, which would you rather be driving, an SUV or a sub-compact?
Driving a Volvo XC90 is a win-win situation not only because it saves you money; it could also save your life!
