Guess which brand has the fewest accidents? Volvo.
Ram and Subaru are the brands most often involved in accidents.
So, it’s quite clear: Speeding leads to a greater chance of being involved in an at-fault accident. So far in 2022, an average of 9.25% of drivers across the U.S. have at least one at-fault accident on record. This number rises, on average, with drivers of specific brands.
Insurify has dug through its database of over 4.6 million car insurance applications and has discovered that drivers of these five auto brands are more likely to be involved in an at-fault accident than others.
Hyundai comes in at #5 with 10.30% of its drivers holding an at-fault accident on record. The now-defunct Genesis Coupe is the worst offender with 13.89% of its owners with a blemished record.
Mazda comes in #4 with an average of 10.41%. CX-3 drivers are the most likely to have an at-fault accident on record.
In the #3 spot is Volkswagen at 10.46%. The compact Jetta sedan is the most responsible model for raising the German automaker’s position.
Unsurprisingly, Subaru is in the #2 position with an average of 10.75%. The WRX often makes the lists of most ticketed cars in North America and therefore, it’s no small wonder that it is the least behave Subie on the road.
And in the #1 spot, we have Ram. Its 10.82% average is due in larger part to Ram 3500 HD truck drivers. On average, 14.14% of them have an at-fault accident on record.
Insurify’s study is interesting and worth a read.
