Insurify posts a top 10 list of cars with the most speeding tickets in the US every year
Three Subaru models are on the list, more than any other brand
The WRX and WRX STI have been number one for the last three years
Insurify, a company that offers a comparison service between competing insurance providers publishes a top 10 of the vehicles that receive the most speeding tickets in the United States every year.
Surprisingly, the brand with the highest number of speed related infractions is not a brand known for its performance cars, like BMW or even Dodge, and it isn’t one of the best-selling brands, like Toyota or Honda, it is actually Subaru.
Now, Subaru does sell a few performance-oriented cars, and those are the ones that cause the most speeding violations in its lineup.
Indeed, the WRX and WRX STI take the first place as their drivers receive 49% more speeding tickets than the average American driver, meaning 18.80% of WRX and WRX STI drivers have at least one offence.
This is the third consecutive year in which these vehicles have been number one in this list.
Subaru isn’t done, with the BRZ taking fifth place and surprisingly, the Impreza taking ninth place for the second time.
In second position is the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, with 17,72% of driver having a speeding ticket. This can be explained by the fact that older Genesis Coupes are coming down in price, which means younger and more speed inclined drivers can afford them.
Number three is the Kia Stinger, with 16.58% of ticketed owners, its high performance is probably what attracts people with a heavy foot.
Number four is the Mazda 3 (16.36%), a car that is popular with enthusiasts due to its acclaimed driving dynamics.
Seventh place is occupied by the GMC Sierra 1500, 15.31% of its owners having received a speeding ticket
The Volkswagen GTI is eight (14.95%), not surprising considering the car’s reputation for affordable performance and its popularity on the tuning scene.
Much more surprising however is the ninth place achieved by the Subaru Impreza (14.81%), a regular compact sedan or hatchback that isn’t really focused on performance and driving excitement.
Finally, the last place of this list is taken by the Hyundai Veloster (14.65%), a small, sporty hatchback that is popular with younger drivers.
