Additional observations and data insights

Some other rates and scenarios are listed below that may help you avoid paying too much on auto insurance.

  • More mature drivers get better rates than young drivers. The difference in insurance rates for a 2022 Atlas between a 40-year-old driver ($1,472 per year) and a 20-year-old driver ($2,924 per year) is $1,452, or a savings of 49.7%.
  • Lower policy cost by raising deductibles. Raising deductibles from $500 to $1,000 could save around $250 per year for a 40-year-old driver and $494 per year for a 20-year-old driver.
  • Low deductibles makes insurance more expensive. Decreasing deductibles from $500 to $250 could cost an additional $264 per year for a 40-year-old driver and $522 per year for a 20-year-old driver.
  • Expect to pay a lot for high risk insurance. For a 20-year-old driver, being required to buy a high-risk insurance policy could increase the cost by $2,260 or more per year.
  • Obey driving laws to keep policy cost low. To get the cheapest VW Atlas insurance rates, it pays to avoid traffic citations. Not surprisingly, just a couple of traffic violations can raise insurance policy cost by up to $380 per year. Serious violations such as hit-and-run could raise rates by an additional $1,338 or more.
  • Get better rates due to your employment. The large majority of car insurance providers offer discounts for working in professions like engineers, members of the military, college professors, police officers and law enforcement, accountants, nurses, and other occupations. If you work in a qualifying profession, you may save between $44 and $159 on your annual car insurance cost, subject to policy limits.
