A new study finds the Ford Edge has the lowest insurance costs of any 2013 model.

Sure, you just got a great deal on that new car, but it may not seem like nearly the bargain when you go to line up insurance.

The cost of insurance a 2013 model can vary widely, from as little as $1,128 to $3,357 a year, according to a new study – and that’s assuming you’ve got a good driving record and live in a place where insurance companies don’t sock you with added costs due to high local loss rates.

It may have a quarter as many seats, but the Audi R8 Spyder will cost three times more than a Toyota Sienna minivan to insure.

If you’re worried about the cost of insuring your next car consider this simple mantra: “boring is better.”

Or so finds a new survey of automotive insurance, which finds that sports and luxury cars are the most expensive products to insure, while minivans – the Toyota Sienna people-mover, in particular – are among the most affordable.

“Minivans have always had a strong showing in our ‘least expensive’ rankings,” said Amy Danise, editorial director of “They regularly prove to be safe, economical vehicles.”

The Sienna, for example, costs an average $1,111 to insure, according to the site’s annual survey, or less than a third what it would cost to cover the2-seat, 197 mph Audi R8 Spyder Quattro Convertible, at $3,384.  Audi, in fact, has the dubious distinction of having two of the ten most expensive cars to insure, BMW also has 2, while Porsche and Mercedes-Benz each have three.
