Sahuarita, Arizona USA 2019 Crosstrek Limited
Safety features are a double-edged sword. Although they prevent accidents they also make what accidents do happen a lot more expensive to repair. My guess is that the Impreza, in general, has higher insurance rates than the Crosstrek.Well we got my sister a 21 Premium Crosstrek, She traded in her 19 Impreza and is thrilled. I'll just say we got a good deal. But more importantly, because now she has Eyesight and the other safety features her Base Impreza didn't, her insurance has gone down $400 a year. I found the same happened for me when I bought my '17 Crosstrek. I remember posting about it at the time.
Case in point. When I was shopping for a 2018 Forester, Eyesight was an option on the Limited. I was curious how much money Eyesight might save me insurance-wise so I called my insurance company (USAA) with the VIN's of two identically equipped Limited's except one had the Eyesight option. The insurance premium for the Eyesight equipped Limited was actually $16 more which I attributed to the Eyesight vehicle costing more.
