Volvo Car Insurance

Volvo is a Swedish manufacturer of luxury cars. They started off in 1927 in Sweden and were owned by Ford Motor Company until 2010 when they were taken over by the Chinese carmaker Geely. Volvo stands out in the United States with its top-notch reliability, well-recognizable boxy car designs and industry-leading safety. If you are looking to buy a new Volvo car and are worried about the total cost of ownership – insurance costs in particular – then this article is for you.

In spite of being considered luxury cars, Volvos comes with relatively moderate insurance price tags. Automobile Magazine has built a list of the cheapest 10 Volvos to insure, and the first eight cost less than $1,500 per yer. The top one on the list, the 2013 Volvo S60, comes with an average yearly premium of only $1,295, which is only $60 more expensive than the bottom car on theForbes Top 16 cheapest cars to insure in 2013

The 2013 Volvo S60 is the third iteration of a model with which the Swedish manufacturer has tried to shift away from the premium market. This doesn’t mean in any way that the quality of parts and materials or the craftsmanship had anything to suffer – it’s just a car that no longer tries to compete against models in the same segment created by Audi, BMW or Mercedes-Benz. Even though it’s considered to be a sporting sedan, it doesn’t come anywhere close to the precision offered by Audi A4 or the BMW 3 Series. The S60 is just Volvo’s attempt to reaffirm its unique brand identity, and they did one great job.
