Is it cheaper to insure an older Subaru WRX?

The price of insuring a WRX doesn't change much over time. In fact, a full-coverage policy for a 2022 WRX is 5% less expensive than insurance for a 2018 model.

The most expensive WRX model year to insure is the 2021 edition, which costs an average of $3,052 per year to insure.

If you're looking to reduce the rate you pay on your WRX, one method is to increase your deductible for comprehensive and collision coverages, because a higher deductible will result in the insurance company paying you less money if you have an accident.

You could also consider removing comprehensive and collision from your policy altogether, as these coverages become less important as your car depreciates in value.
