Number 4: Scion FR-S
The Scion FR-S is now the Toyota 86 but the data from the IIHS study still included the car and because the car is the exact same, the insurance rates likely will be too. The little sports coupe is might be one of the most affordable cars of its kind to buy, but insuring it will sure be costly. This car’s high insurance prices landed it in the number four spot on this list.
The current Toyota 86, which used to be the Scion FR-S has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that manages to push out 200 or 205 hp, depending on how you get your car. The rear-wheel-drive sports car isn’t wildly powerful but it’s designed for sports car lovers.
Again, this car isn’t really that expensive, but its intended use is what must worry insurance companies. They guys writing up the insurance policies know that this car isn’t going to just be zipping to and from the grocery store.
