How much is car insurance for a Ford Fusion Hybrid?

NADA reports an average monthly auto insurance cost of about $106 for the 2012 Fusion Hybrid for drivers with over six years of driving experience. That adds up to $1,272 per year and $6,360 over five years.

If you have only three to six years of driving experience, though, you’ll pay about $200 per month, and your rates will climb to over $300 per month if you have less than three years’ experience.

The Nissan Altima Hybrid also costs about $106 per month to insure, according to the NADA, but the average driver pays just $92 per month to protect the Honda Civic Hybrid.

Chevrolet Volt auto insurance typically costs around $114 a month, and car insurance for the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid costs about $132 monthly for most drivers.

To insure a Toyota Prius or a Camry Hybrid, you should expect to pay about $133 monthly. Though these differences in monthly rates may seem small, consider that you’d save nearly $850 over five years if you paid $92 per month instead of $106.

In the fourth and fifth years, you’ll pay about $712 each for Ford Fusion Hybrid repairs, for a 5-year total of about $1,800.

Except for the Altima and Civic hybrids, which cost about $1,500 each to repair for five years, the anticipated 5-year repair costs for most combinations are under $1,000.

The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid features a more extended basic warranty than the Fusion Hybrid, at five years or 60,000 miles, and its powertrain is covered for ten years or 100,000 miles.

However, it does not feature a separate warranty specifically for hybrid parts like the Fusion Hybrid does.

2012 Fusion Hybrid Options Packages

The Fusion Hybrid’s optional “Moon and Tune” package includes a moonroof and an upgraded Sony audio system.

In order to get this package, though, you must also add on the “Driver’s Vision” package, which incorporates a rearview camera and rain-sensing wipers. Together, these packages cost an additional $1,745.

For $4,095 over the base price, you can add on all of the features included in these two packages, plus a navigation system and heated, leather front seats.

Standard features on the 2012 Fusion Hybrid include a rear parking sensor, dual-zone climate controls, power windows, and ambient lighting.

2012 Fusion Hybrid Safety

The Ford Fusion Hybrid is an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety “Top Safety Pick,” which means that it received top scores from the IIHS in crash tests.

The Fusion Hybrid incorporates standard safety features like electronic stability control and traction control, as well as more advanced features like the Ford MyKey system.

This system allows the vehicle owner to set profiles for different drivers, which restrict the vehicle’s top speed and mute the vehicle’s audio functions until all seatbelts are fastened.

Other safety features include antilock brakes, a tire pressure monitoring system, and child safety locks.
