So you’ve finally bought the vehicle of your dreams, a Nissan 370Z. To protect your investment and your wallet, you should insure your purchase as soon as possible. The 370Z insurance costs vary depending on your provider, your age, and other factors.
How Much Is Car Insurance for a 370Z?
According to The Zebra, it costs, on average, $187 a month to insure a Nissan 370Z. That’s $58 more a month than insurance costs for the average vehicle. However, the 370Z isn’t the average vehicle. It’s a high-performance sports car, which insurance companies consider a greater risk to provide coverage for, as The Zebra notes.
What Type of Insurance Coverage Do You Need for a 370Z?
Trusted Choice recommends that you purchase the following types of coverage for your 370Z:
- Bodily Injury Liability: Depending on where you live, state law requires you to buy a minimum type of bodily injury liability coverage. This type of coverage pays for medical costs incurred by the other driver if you’re at fault for an accident.
- Property Damage Liability: This is another type of coverage mandated by most states. Property damage liability pays for the other driver’s automotive repairs if you’re responsible for an accident. It can also cover damage to objects like fences and light posts.
- Medical Payments/Personal Injury Protection (PIP): In some states, PIP is optional. This type of coverage pays for medical care for you and your passengers, no matter who is at fault in an accident.
- Uninsured Motorist Coverage: Even in states that mandate minimum liability coverage, some drivers take a risk and operate their vehicles without insurance. Uninsured motorist coverage protects you if you’re in an accident and the other driver is at fault but doesn’t have insurance.
- Collision Coverage: While no state mandates that you carry collision coverage, your lending or leasing company might require you to add it to your insurance policy. Collision coverage pays for repairs to your 370Z if you’re in an accident with another vehicle.
- Comprehensive Coverage: This is another type of coverage required by lending companies but not by state law. If your 370Z is damaged due to theft, vandalism, or a natural disaster, comprehensive coverage will pay for any necessary repairs.
- Glass Coverage: If you add glass coverage to your policy, you won’t have to pay out of pocket for windshield damage.
- Gap Insurance: If you’re still making payments on your 370Z or leasing it, you might already have gap coverage. This type of insurance helps drivers pay off their vehicle if an accident results in a total loss.
Factors That Affect 370Z Insurance Costs
Depending on your personal profile, you could end up paying more or less than the average cost of insurance for your 370Z. One factor that has a significant impact on insurance rates is a driver’s age. If you’re a teen driver, you can expect to pay more for insurance because you have less driving experience.
