Models included in this review

The Chevy Camaro is considered a sports car, which, depending on the driver, could increase the cost of the car insurance. There is both a coupe and a convertible option, which could each change the premium.

How much does it cost to insure a Chevy Camaro?

For perspective, the average cost of insurance in the U.S. is $1,674 per year for a full coverage policy. When it comes to premiums, multiple factors impact the amount you pay, including the make and model of the vehicle. The crash rate statistics, price of parts and safety features are a few examples of how the make and model could have a strong influence on the price:

  • Crash rate statistics: 2020 crash data from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) shows the Chevy Camaro earns several “good” ratings — the highest grade available. The roof strength rating is noted as average, while the latch system earns a marginal evaluation. Crash data could impact how much a carrier charges, making it helpful that the Chevrolet Camaro earns good remarks overall.
  • Price of parts: The Chevy Camaro is built in the U.S., which means many parts do not rely on importation. This may also have an impact on the cost of insurance, since replacement parts can be more expensive if they are imported.
  • Safety features: The Chevy Camaro includes numerous standard safety features, including an airbag system and a teen driver profile to limit certain features for younger drivers. Many of these standard features could possibly mean additional discounts on premiums.

Car insurance for a Chevy: by model

Although rates are based on specific personal factors, it may be helpful to review average insurance rates for the Chevy Camaro for both minimum and full coverage options.

Chevy features that impact insurance costs

Because multiple standard and optional features are available, how much you pay for auto insurance for Chevy Camaro coupes or convertibles could vary based on:

  • Air bags: Enhanced safety equipment, such as air bags, may be one way to earn additional discounts on insurance premiums. Air bags are standard with the Chevrolet Camaro, with the system including both frontal and side impact and head-curtain air bags.
  • Blind zone alerts: The blind spot warning system and lane change alerts are also standard with the Chevy Camaro. These make a warning sound, immediately alerting you to another object or vehicle located within the blind spot.
  • Daytime running lamps: This standard feature is sometimes considered an enhanced safety add-on with carriers and may result in additional savings.

Other car insurance coverage for a Chevy Camaro

When selecting car insurance for a Chevy Camaro, there are a variety of options beyond minimum coverage. Some options add convenience if you find yourself without your vehicle, but others may cover significant medical expenses and lost income if you are involved in an accident.

  • Comprehensive coverage: This coverage provides payment towards repair or replacement if your vehicle is damaged from something other than a collision. For example, if the vehicle was damaged by theft, vandalism, weather-related events or hit by an animal.
  • Collision coverage: Collision coverage pays toward repairs or replaces a vehicle if it is damaged due to an at-fault accident. It could either pay for the needed repairs or pay the book value if the damage is enough for a total loss.
  • Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage: Depending on the state you live in, uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage (UM/UIM) may either be optional or mandated. This coverage could pay if your Chevrolet Camaro is involved in a hit-and-run accident or involved in an accident with someone who does not carry any insurance or enough coverage.
  • Personal injury protection (PIP): Like UM/UIM coverage, PIP is mandated in some states and optional in others. This coverage pays for medical expenses, lost wages and funeral expenses related to an accident regardless of fault. This coverage applies to both you and your passengers.
  • Roadside assistance: This extra coverage provides assistance if you find your vehicle inoperable due to issues like lack of fuel, a dead battery or flat tire. It’s possible roadside assistance is included in the purchase of a new vehicle, but if not, consider adding this for emergency situations.
  • Gap insurance: If your vehicle is totaled as a result of an accident and the payout is less than the amount you still owe on the loan, then this coverage pays the difference. Most lenders require this coverage if you finance a vehicle.
