Insure.com, an insurance resource site, recently published a list of the least expensive cars to insure among the nation's 20 best-selling vehicles. Topping the list was the 2009 Honda Odyssey, which holds an average annual premium of $1,216, followed the 2009 Honda CR-V and Ford Escape. Surprisingly, popular compact cars like the 2009 Ford Focus and Toyota Corolla found their places more towards the bottom of the list, while the 2009 Dodge Ram came in dead last, touting an average premium of $1,553. Insure.com obtained quotes from six different insurance companies in seven different ZIP codes for each of the cars in order to calculate an average annual premium for each. The generic policy holder they used was a 40-year-old single male, who owns his own home and car, is a college graduate and has a clean driving record. The policy limits were set at $100,000 per person and $300,000 per accident for bodily injury and $50,000 for property damage. To see the complete list, check out insure.com.
