If you're looking to buy a new car, one of the things you should do is check out how much your insurance will change based on the new make and model you choose. While there are many factors that influence the price you'll pay for insurance, the vehicle you drive is an important one. Pick a sports car like the Corvette, which ranks number 5 most expensive to insure, and you'll pay much more than if you had chosen to drive a Kia Sedona, which is the cheapest car to insure.

The list of the most expensive cars to insure and the cheapest cars to insure in 2010 comes from InsWeb, which compared insurance rate requests from customers for over 400 models from January to September of this year. These quotes, and rankings, take into account the quotes for customers of various ages and from different areas of the United States.
