How much does it cost to insure an Infiniti?
The average driver pays $1,771 per year for full coverage insurance and $545 per year for minimum coverage insurance, according to premium data from Quadrant Information Services. However, the cost of car insurance for Infinitis depends on a variety of factors, including the model of your vehicle. Additionally, different insurance companies charge different rates for the same Infiniti models. Here are some of the biggest factors that contribute to the cost of Infiniti insurance:
- Crash rate stats per make/model: Third-party ratings indicate that some Infinitis are safer than others. There were no 2022 Infiniti models that were named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). In general, safer cars have lower insurance premiums.
- Price of parts: Infinitis can be expensive to maintain and repair. It is possible that some parts will need to be shipped from overseas or specially ordered. Typically, cars that are pricier to fix have higher insurance premiums because they require bigger claim payouts.
- Safety features: Many 2022 Infiniti models are equipped with advanced safety features, like predictive forward collision warnings, lane departure warnings and adaptive steering. Because of that, having a car with these safety features may help lower the cost of insurance.

- Air bags: All Infinitis are equipped with air bags to protect the driver and passengers, regardless of where they are sitting in the car.
- Panoramic awareness: With Infiniti’s panoramic awareness technology, drivers get a 360-degree view of their vehicle while parking and alerts when moving objects are detected in front of, behind or next to the car.
- Automatic collision notifications: Some newer Infiniti models come with an automatic collision notification system, which allows the driver to contact a live response specialist 24/7, hands-free, in the event of an accident. The response specialist can dispatch emergency crews to the scene if necessary.
Other car insurance coverage for an Infiniti
Almost every driver is required to carry at least a minimum amount of car insurance that protects their financial liabilities in the event of an at-fault accident. However, there are a variety of other insurance coverage types that Infiniti owners might consider.
Upgrading to a full coverage policy will give you collision and comprehensive insurance to offer financial protection for your vehicle and help pay for covered damages. Accident forgiveness can keep your rate from increasing after your first accident. Drivers might also consider gap insurance if they lease or finance their new Infiniti, which is a type of insurance that can help repay the loan balance if your car gets totaled.
