How much is car insurance in Arizona?

The average cost of car insurance in Arizona is $2,557 per year for full coverage and $770 per year for minimum coverage. Arizona drivers pay more than the national average cost of car insurance for full coverage, which is $2,311 per year. The cost of minimum coverage insurance in Arizona is also more expensive than the national average of $640 per year. Arizona’s average car insurance rates are in between the average rates in neighboring states of California and Utah. California’s average full coverage rates are higher at $2,667 per year for full coverage and lower for minimum coverage at $651 per year. On the other hand, Utah’s average rates are lower than Arizona's, at $2,078 per year for full coverage and $787 per year for minimum coverage.

Location is a major factor impacting state rates, as each state, and even each city within the state could have a different crime rate, cost of living, average repair costs, and more. For instance, California's average rates could be higher than Arizona's due to a higher population density, leading to a higher prevalence of car accidents. Utah could be cheaper for the same reason — a lower population density, leading to a reduced risk of car accidents. Additionally, Los Angeles is the second-largest city in the country, which may skew California’s average rates as a whole.

Methodology

Bankrate utilizes Quadrant Information Services to analyze June 2024 rates for all ZIP codes and carriers in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. Rates are weighted based on the population density in each geographic region. Quoted rates are based on a single, 40-year-old male and female driver with a clean driving record, good credit and the following full coverage limits:

  • $100,000 bodily injury liability per person
  • $300,000 bodily injury liability per accident
  • $50,000 property damage liability per accident
  • $100,000 uninsured motorist bodily injury per person
  • $300,000 uninsured motorist bodily injury per accident
  • $500 collision deductible
  • $500 comprehensive deductible

To determine minimum coverage limits, Bankrate used minimum coverage that meets each state’s requirements. Our base profile drivers own a 2022 Toyota Camry, commute five days a week and drive 12,000 miles annually.

These are sample rates and should only be used for comparative purposes.
