While insurance companies determine rates based on a number of factors, a car’s make and model is one of the most critical. If you're considering buying an Acura or you already own one and are looking to switch carriers, you might be curious about the average cost of car insurance for an Acura. Bankrate's insurance editorial team analyzed average rates for the Acura RDX to give you an idea of what you might pay to insure this model and others from this brand.
How much does it cost to insure an Acura?
Our editorial team used the Acura RDX to analyze rates for this make. The average annual premium for a full coverage policy for the RDX is $1,772 per year, according to premium data from Quadrant Information Services. Of course, premiums vary based on the specific model and by insurer. This average is about $20 less per month compared to the national average cost of full coverage at $2,014 per year. Some of the key factors that may contribute to the Acura's lower-than-average premiums include:
- Crash rate statistics: The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) included three Acura models, including the RDX, in its 2023 Top Safety Picks. All three models earned Top Safety Pick+ distinctions. Better demonstrated crash outcomes may yield lower insurance premiums as the risk to passengers in the event of an accident is lower.
- Safety features: The IIHS rates the 2023 Acura RDX as "good" in all crashworthiness and crash avoidance categories. The 2023 model features AcuraWatch, crash-prevention technology that includes pedestrian detection, lane assist and traffic sign detection.
- Price of parts: Acura is actually owned by Honda, and most models are made in the U.S., Mexico and Canada. This may make parts more readily available, lowering the average cost of insurance.
