Table data represents married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Texas minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include claim-free, multi-vehicle, multi-policy, safe-driver, and homeowner. Premium costs do not factor in San Antonio location which can lower or raise rates substantially.

Based on the data above, we can derive that using a $250 deductible will cost you approximately $28 more each month or $336 a year averaged for all SX4 models than requesting the higher $1,000 deductible. Because you would be required to pay $750 more out-of-pocket with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you tend to go at a minimum 27 months between claims, you would probably save some money if you decide on a higher deductible. Here is a better example of how this decision is made.

Average monthly premium for $250 deductibles: $113
Average monthly premium for $1,000 deductibles (subtract): - $85
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $28
Difference between deductibles ($1,000 - $250): $750
Divide difference by monthly savings: $750 / $28
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 27 months

Full coverage rates vs. liability-only

The chart below illustrates the comparison of Suzuki SX4 annual premium costs when comparing full coverage to liability only. The prices are based on no claims or driving violations, $100 deductibles, drivers are single, and no other discounts are factored in.

When to drop comprehensive and collision coverage

There is no exact formula to delete physical damage coverage on your policy, but there is a broad guideline. If the yearly cost for physical damage coverage is more than around 10% of the replacement cost of your vehicle minus the policy deductible, then you may need to consider dropping full coverage.

For example, let's assume your Suzuki SX4 settlement value is $8,000 and you have $1,000 policy deductibles. If your vehicle is damaged in an accident, the most you would receive is $7,000 after paying your policy deductible. If it's costing in excess of $700 annually for full coverage, then it's probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.

There are some situations where dropping physical damage coverage is not a good plan. If you haven't paid off your loan, you have to maintain full coverage to satisfy the loan requirements. Also, if your savings is not enough to buy a different vehicle if your current one is in an accident, you should not eliminate full coverage.

Informed Drivers Can Lower Insurance Rates

Many different elements are used when pricing auto insurance. Some are obvious such as your driving record, although some other factors are less apparent like where you live or your vehicle rating.

  • Does insurance coverage cost less for females? - Statistics have proven that men are more aggressive behind the wheel. However, this does not mean females are better drivers. Males and females tend to get into accidents in similar numbers, but the males cause more damage. Not only that, but men also get ticketed for serious violations such as driving while intoxicated (DWI) or driving recklessly.

    The diagram below visualizes the comparison of Suzuki SX4 insurance rates for male and female drivers. The data assumes no driving violations, no at-fault accidents, full coverage, $100 deductibles, drivers are not married, and no discounts are applied to the premium.

  • Safer the car lower the rate - Vehicles that have high safety ratings can get you lower premiums. Vehicles built for safety protect occupants better and lower injury rates means your insurance company pays less and thus lower rates. If your Suzuki SX4 has ratings of a minimum an "acceptable" rating on the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety website or four stars on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website you may qualify for a discount.
  • Policy add-ons may be wasting money - There are quite a few extra bells and whistles that you can buy if you aren't careful. Insurance for things like roadside assistance, better glass coverage, and additional equipment coverage are examples of these. They may seem good when deciding what coverages you need, but your money might be better spent on other coverage so eliminate them to save money.
  • Your occupation and auto insurance rates - Occupations like military personnel, executives, and miners generally pay higher premiums than the average policyholder attributed to intense work situations and extremely grueling work hours. Conversely, occupations like actors, students and performers generally pay rates lower than average.
  • Credit rating impacts premium prices - An insured's credit rating is a large factor in calculating your premium rate. Therefore, if your credit score can use some improvement, you could save money insuring your Suzuki SX4 if you clean up your credit. Insureds that have high credit ratings tend to be better drivers and file fewer claims than drivers who have lower credit ratings.
  • Reserve claims for larger damages - If you tend to file frequent claims, you can expect higher rates. Companies in Texas give better rates to drivers who do not rely on their insurance for small claims. Your insurance policy is intended to be relied upon for major claims that would cause financial hardship.
