The small and surprisingly fuel-efficient Honda Civic debuted in 1972, when gas prices were at an all-time high and Americans needed a break at the pump. Now, over 50 years later, the Civic, CR-V, Accord and Odyssey are still some of the most popular and affordable cars on the road. The national average cost of car insurance is $2,014 annually for full coverage and $622 for minimum coverage—however, you may pay more or less for your Honda car insurance depending on several factors. Bankrate's insurance editorial team analyzed data from Quadrant Information Services and created this tip guide that may help you save money on your Honda car insurance.

Cheapest car insurance companies for Hondas

Hondas can cost slightly below average for car insurance, but rates vary between models and drivers. Since Honda manufactures several models and parts in the U.S., parts and labor costs are relatively inexpensive. Cheaper parts and labor directly impact the cost of certain insurance coverage types, like collision insurance. However, popularity can cause a new set of problems. For example, the Honda Civic consistently ranks as one of the most stolen cars across the nation, which in turn, can increase the price of comprehensive insurance in some areas.

To help you find the best car insurance for your Honda, Bankrate’s team analyzed rates across the most prominent insurers to find the cheapest car insurance carriers. Using additional factors such as customer satisfaction and financial strength, we compiled the best car insurance companies for each Honda model on our list.

Honda features that impact insurance costs

Compared to other vehicle types, Hondas may have unique features that impact insurance costs. Although newer Hondas may have more technology features, these same features could make your vehicle safer on the road and seem to still cost less than other vehicle make and models. The following features could improve your insurance rates:

  • Anti-lock brakes & brake assist: These braking safety features are designed to prevent a serious accident due to over-correction of braking or not braking in time. If your Honda has these braking features, your insurance company may determine you are less likely to get into an accident.
  • Lane departure warning: This safety feature is designed to alert drivers they have drifted outside their lane. Sideswiping another vehicle is a common cause for motor vehicle accidents so your insurance company may see this feature as something that could prevent a claim payout in the future.
  • Side air bags: Car insurance companies are not only looking for features that could prevent accidents altogether but also features that could reduce injuries if an accident did occur. Side air bags help protect passengers in your vehicle, especially during a side impact crash, and may be a common feature in the larger Hondas with plenty of passenger seating.

Other car insurance coverage for Honda

Though it can be tempting to get the cheapest coverage available to satisfy the state, it is important to get the best coverage for you, even if it is not the cheapest price. With higher liability limits, you are protecting your finances with more robust coverage if you cause an accident resulting in injuries to others or property damage.

You never know what can happen the next time you drive down the road, so it could pay to be smart about your coverage choices. With only liability limits mandated in many states, most other coverage types are considered optional. If you finance or lease your new Honda, the lender may have its own requirements you must meet. You may want to consider these optional, but important, coverage types for your Honda car insurance:

  • Comprehensive coverage: This coverage protects against weather damage, if you hit an animal, broken glass, including windows, theft of the vehicle and vandalism. To avoid self-insuring these types of events, having comprehensive coverage can be well worthwhile.
  • Collision coverage: Usually bought with comprehensive coverage, collision coverage is what pays when there is damage to your car from an accident, regardless of fault. If you happen to total your Honda, the collision coverage should pay the book value, minus your deductible.
  • Gap insurance: It’s no secret that a car’s value goes down as soon as you drive it off the lot. With gap insurance, if your new Honda is totaled in a covered accident and it’s not worth as much as you owe, this coverage would pay your lender to fill the gap so you don’t have to pay out of pocket.
