Factors in Mustang GT Insurance Cost
Your cost for a Mustang GT auto insurance policy will vary based on a range of factors, including the vehicle trim and year, the desired coverage, your age, your geographic location, your driving history, and your history of insurance coverage.
Cover.com reports that Mustang insurance usually costs more than other vehicles’ coverage because these sports cars have more expensive parts. If you get in an accident, your Mustang will cost more to repair than a less expensive vehicle. Repair costs increase even more if you have high-tech options such as dynamic brake support, forward collision warning, and lane departure warning.
Mustangs that have larger engines with higher horsepower cost more to insure. Some models top 400 horses, which increases your risk of being involved in a high-speed accident in your sports car. Providers balance the higher risk with a higher insurance cost.
The high rate of theft for sports cars such as Mustangs influences their insurance premiums. While Cover.com notes that the Mustang is the second-most-stolen sports car, it’s easier to recover than higher-end models that end up getting sold in other countries.
Safety ratings also affect insurance costs. The Ford Mustang consistently receives five-star overall crash test ratings from the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration, which helps keep its premiums affordable. The 2020 Ford Mustang has safety equipment that includes airbags, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, lane departure warning, traction control, daytime running lights, electronic stability control, braking assistance, and lane keeping assistance.
Maintaining a good driving record can keep the cost of insuring your Mustang affordable. Expert Insurance Reviews reports that your annual coverage premium could increase by more than 200 percent after just one traffic ticket.
Ask about discounts when you get quotes for Mustang GT insurance. For example, you could qualify for savings for maintaining a good driving record or enrolling in more than one insurance policy with the same company.
Consumer Insurance Reports says you can save up to 25 percent by bundling your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance with your auto coverage or by adding another driver to your policy. You can also save 15 percent or more from many companies if you are a current member of the military or a veteran. Safe driving discounts max out at 30 percent at many insurance companies.
You can save up to $400 on insurance for your Mustang GT by shopping around for policies with different companies. Experts recommend checking for a more affordable insurance option by getting new quotes about once a year.
