According to a survey from Insurify, there are more at-fault crashes involving Subaru Crosstreks than any other vehicle on the road. The auto insurance comparison site examined 1.6 million insurance quotes in its database and came up with a list of nine other vehicles that are the most accident-prone. Residents of Texas should be aware that in order for these quotes to be considered, they had to reveal the car’s make and model and whether the vehicle was in a prior accident.
The finding that the Subaru Crosstrek was No. 1 on the list may seem odd when considering how the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety awarded the 2019 Crosstrek with the highest marks in terms of crash avoidance and crashworthiness. Despite the disproportionate number of crashes, for which there seems to be no explanation, most of the accidents do not cause the occupants in the Crosstrek to sustain serious injuries.
After the Crosstrek, which was affected by 25.81% of accidents, came the Honda HR-V. Insurify reports that accidents impacted 25.7% of all Honda HR-Vs. Accidents have impacted 13.64% of the 10 listed vehicles overall.
Ranked next in ascending order were the Subaru WRX, Hyundai Elantra GT and Infiniti Q50. The WRX is pulled over more than any other vehicle for speeding offenses. The list concludes with the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, Acura ILX, Mazda3, Chevrolet Trax and Lexus CT.
When a motor vehicle accident involves a newer car model, its driver may not have all the expenses covered by the insurance companies. As long as he or she is less than 51% at fault, there is the possibility of filing a third-party insurance claim and recovering damages, which can cover the cost of a new vehicle, medical expenses, lost wages and more. However, it may be wise to see a lawyer before moving forward because there is bound to be opposition to the claim.
