A liability-only auto insurance policy for a Spark in the cheaper areas of Iowa or North Carolina may cost as little as $239 a year. For the same 2022 Chevy Spark, a teen driver with a propensity for speed in the most expensive zip codes in America could total as much as $12,686 a year for full coverage.

That example illustrates how much car insurance rates can vary based on different drivers and locations. We also recommend getting a quote to ensure the most accurate rates for your situation and zip code.

Additional sample rates and possible policy discounts on Spark insurance include:

  • Policy discounts equal cheaper Spark insurance rates. Discounts may be available if the insureds are claim-free, belong to certain professional organizations, insure their home and car with the same company, are good students, are senior citizens, or many other discounts which could save the average driver as much as $226 per year.
  • Earn a discount from your employment. Some car insurance providers offer discounts for certain occupations like members of the military, emergency medical technicians, scientists, architects, police officers and law enforcement, and other occupations. Working in a qualifying occupation could potentially save between $40 and $158 on your car insurance premium, depending on your policy.
  • Clean up your credit to lower your rates. In states that authorize a driver’s credit data to be used as an auto insurance rate factor, drivers who maintain a credit score over 800 could find savings as much as $207 per year when compared to a credit score ranging from 670-739. Conversely, a weak credit rating could cost as much as $240 more per year.
  • Avoid accidents for cheaper rates. At-fault accidents raise insurance rates, to the tune of $604 per year for a 30-year-old driver and even $412 per year for a 60-year-old driver.
  • The higher deductible you choose, the lower the policy cost. Raising deductibles from $500 to $1,000 could save around $168 per year for a 40-year-old driver and $318 per year for a 20-year-old driver.
  • Choosing a low deductible may not make good financial sense. Decreasing your deductibles from $500 to $250 could cost an additional $174 per year for a 40-year-old driver and $336 per year for a 20-year-old driver.
  • Rates tend to decrease as driver age increases. The difference in 2022 Spark insurance cost between a 60-year-old driver ($1,178 per year) and a 20-year-old driver ($2,600 per year) is $1,422, or a savings of 54.7%.

Chevrolet Spark Insurance Cost by Model Year

At some point as the vehicle gets older, vehicle owners have to make the decision to delete physical damage coverage (comprehensive and collision) from a policy. As a vehicle loses value over time, the expense of maintaining comprehensive and collision coverage begins to outweigh the benefits provided by having it.

Buying a liability-only policy on an older Chevrolet Spark could possibly save around $388 a year, depending on what the comprehensive and collision deductibles were set to and the age of the driver rated on the vehicle.
