Will Downsizing My Car Help Save Money On My California Auto Insurance?

Will Downsizing My Car Help Save Money On My California Auto Insurance?


There are a number of benefits to downsizing your car in 2012.  Although you may not get the same amount of trunk space, leg room or head-room, there are many benefits to owning a smaller vehicle in today’s economy.

The size of your car matter’s when it comes to your California auto insurance annual premium.  California insurance companies usually have lower premiums for vehicles that have smaller engines and less expensive add-on’s at the time of purchase.

For starters, your monthly fuel cost will decrease. Think about it…an SUV costs $80.00+ to fill up the entire tank, while an economy class car costs around $45.00 per tank and had better fuel efficiency. There is also a great difference in the money you will spend on a smaller car with a smaller engine.  Annual vehicle registration fee can decrease depending on government regulations and yearly law changes.

A smaller, less expensive car can save you hundreds on that hard-to-pay bill called California vehicle registration! Registration is also lower for “green” vehicles like hybrid or electric cars that are on the market today. People who do downsize cars save, on average, around $600 a year on fuel, vehicle registration and insurance.
