The 2021 average annual cost of car insurance in the U.S. is $1,674 for full coverage. Based on Bankrate’s research, Cadillac insurance may be more expensive than the average, partly because they may be considered luxury vehicles with high retail prices and costly parts. Your own Cadillac auto insurance rates will likely differ from the average due to your individual insurance rating factors. Doing some research and comparing quotes from multiple providers may help you find a policy that fits within your budget.

How much does it cost to insure a Cadillac?
As a luxury vehicle, costs for maintenance and auto insurance for Cadillac cars are typically more expensive than those of economy cars. After analyzing data from Quadrant Information Services, Bankrate has found that average full coverage car insurance for some popular Cadillac models is higher than the national average. The following factors may impact how much you pay for insurance for your Cadillac vehicle.
- Crashworthiness ratings per make/model: According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), both the 2022 Cadillac XT5 and 2019 Cadillac CTS scored fairly well in most crashworthiness categories. However, both models fell short when it came to headlight quality, with crash avoidance ratings of “moderate” for the XT5 and “poor” for the CTS.
- Price of parts: As a luxury vehicle, parts for Cadillac repairs may be more expensive than those for economy vehicles. However, Cadillacs are primarily manufactured in the U.S., which may improve part pricing and availability.
- Safety features: Common safety features in newer Cadillac models include forward collision alert, rear parking assist and automatic emergency braking. More safety features may help lower the possibility of accidents, so insurance companies may reduce rates accordingly.

What features impact my Cadillac insurance costs?
Cadillac recently announced an enhanced line of safety features for all its new vehicles, starting with 2021 models. These features and technological advancements may increase each car’s safety rating and could reduce average Cadillac insurance premiums. These features include:
- Forward collision alert: This warning system alerts drivers of a potential front-end collision if their Cadillac detects objects in front of them. It may also warn drivers if they are tailgating the car in front of them too closely.
- Automatic emergency braking: Newer Cadillacs also use forward collision alert to brake automatically under specific circumstances to help avoid or reduce the impact of a front-end collision.
- Teen driver system: Parents with young drivers may be interested in this feature, which allows you to set speed warnings and limits, as well as a volume limit to minimize distractions while your child is driving.
- Front and rear parking sensors: These sensors warn if you’re getting too close to another car or object.
- Rearview camera: Whenever you put the car in reverse, an image of what’s behind you will appear on your dashboard touchscreen for improved awareness of your surroundings.
Other car insurance coverage for a Cadillac
Although most states have minimum requirements for auto insurance, most insurance professionals recommend purchasing higher limits if you can afford to do so. This could include choosing higher liability limits for bodily injury and property damage to better protect your finances.
If you lease your vehicle, your lender will likely require you to carry collision and comprehensive insurance, which may help you pay for damages to your own car in the event of an accident. Some other common endorsements include gap insurance, roadside assistance and rideshare coverage.
