How much does car insurance for a Nissan cost?

Your Nissan's car insurance cost will depend on factors like the model you have, how you plan to use your Nissan, your location, your driving record, your age, and more. As one of the cheapest cars on the market in 2023 (according to U.S. News and World Report), the Nissan Versa may be fairly affordable to insure, especially considering its safety features — cars with better safety ratings may be in fewer accidents and qualify for more insurance discounts.

But there are plenty of other car insurance rate factors besides a car's cost and features. Get a car insurance quote today for an estimate that factors in your unique details.

Pro tip:

Your car's characteristics can have a different effect on your rate based on the coverages you have. For example, the value of your car may affect your rate more if you carry comprehensive and collision coverages, since those cover damages to your vehicle.
