Buying cheaper coverage for a Honda CR-V is pretty easy to do, but it depends on a complex formula that considers things such as miles driven annually, whether or not you have prior claims, and any driving offenses on your record. Drivers in Ohio pay around $490 annually for CR-V insurance, but that figure is an estimation using a 40-year-old married male driver with both comprehensive and collision coverage and $500 deductibles.
It's more than likely you're not a 40-year-old male, maybe you are single instead of married, and you don't want the same coverages and limits as the example. Having even a minor difference in policy rating criteria or coverages can result in a massive change in the cost of insurance.
Auto insurance is not the same for everyone, so the way we recommend to find cheap insurance prices for your Honda is to compare rates from as many companies as possible. Quotes only take a couple of minutes and you will be able to see rates from the best auto insurance companies that sell coverage in Ohio.
The trim level of your Honda will likely have an effect on the coverage cost, so the price you pay to insure a CR-V LX 2WD trim level will be $16 less than the price to insure the higher-end CR-V EX-L 4WD trim level, as shown below.
|Model||Comp||Collision||Liability||Medical||UM/UIM||Annual Premium||Monthly Premium|
|CR-V LX 2WD||$114||$180||$198||$12||$60||$564||$47|
|CR-V EX 2WD||$114||$180||$198||$12||$60||$564||$47|
|CR-V LX 4WD||$114||$180||$198||$12||$60||$564||$47|
|CR-V EX 4WD||$130||$180||$198||$12||$60||$580||$48|
|CR-V EX-L 2WD||$130||$180||$198||$12||$60||$580||$48|
|CR-V EX-L 4WD||$130||$180||$198||$12||$60||$580||$48|

Impact of careless driving on Columbus auto insurance rates
The easiest method to get low auto insurance rates in Ohio for a CR-V is to be a cautious driver and not get tickets or have accidents. The illustration below demonstrates how traffic citations and at-fault accidents drive up auto insurance costs for different categories of driver ages. The premium estimates are based on a married female driver, full physical damage coverage, $100 deductibles, and no discounts are factored in.
In the example above, the average cost of car insurance per year with a clean driving record and no accidents is $1,041. Get written up for two speeding tickets and the average cost surges to $1,477, an increase of $437 each year. Next add one accident along with the two speeding tickets and the yearly cost of auto insurance for a Honda CR-V increases to an average of $1,905. That's an increase of $865, or $72 per month, just for not being more responsible behind the wheel!

Columbus auto insurance rates are calculated based on many things that will increase or decrease the policy price. Getting older, buying a home instead of renting, or getting a few speeding tickets can trigger price changes that can cause some rates to be cheaper than competitors. In addition to those changes, car insurance companies change the rates they charge in Ohio as needed in order to maintain liquidity for claims. Heavier than normal losses may cause price increases, while better underwriting can cause lower-cost CR-V insurance rates.
As an example, the chart below shows which company has the cheapest car insurance in Columbus, OH for a 45-year-old female driver with a clean driving record, no accidents, and great credit. When quoting prices based on her personal risk profile, Utica National offers the cheapest car insurance rates in Columbus at $796 a year. This is $244 less than the average premium paid by Ohio drivers of $1,040. Erie, Frankenmuth, Allied, and Travelers are the remainder of the most affordable Columbus, OH auto insurance companies.
