Report From IIHS Details Insurance Claims by Vehicle Type

September 20, 2012

ARLINGTON, VA – The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) released a new report from the Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI) reveals insurance claim data by vehicle type.

A couple of findings include that luxury vehicles and high-end sports cars have the most expensive claims for damage, and “minicars” and cars with powerful engines have the most frequent insurance claims for injuries to occupants. These results, and those shown below, apply to model-years 2009 - 2011.

The chart below shows the vehicles with the lowest and highest overall losses. A score of 100 represents the average for all vehicles under a given coverage type.
