Large insurance companies analyze a huge amount of customers’ personal data, such as social media posts, credit scores, and even your web shopping habits. Then, they churn the data through a proprietary algorithm that estimates how likely you are to shop around or just renew your existing policy each year. By doing so, they can increase your premium just enough to raise their profit margins without attracting your attention and prompting you to shop for a new policy.

NerdWallet averaged rates for 40-year-old men and women for 20 ZIP codes in each state and Washington, D.C., from the largest insurers, up to 12 in each state. “Good drivers” had no moving violations on record and credit in the “good” tier as reported to each insurer.

"State Farm's usage-based insurance program uses information from your smartphone or your vehicle's OnStar communication service to calculate your discount," explained Vicki Harper, State Farm's public affairs specialist focusing on auto safety.

Insurance groups are designated for vehicles in the UK. The groups are determined by the Group Rating Panel, which is made up of representatives of the insurance industry and meets every month to determine car insurance groups. The cost of insuring your car will be determined by which insurance group your vehicle falls into, ranging from Group 1 all the way up to Group 50. The ratings take into consideration a variety of factors, including safety, performance, size and weight, security, and probably most important, the cost of repairs.
Type of car: If you have an expensive or powerful car then you are seen as a higher risk for a number of reasons. If it’s expensive, it has a higher risk of being stolen. If it’s powerful, it’s deemed more at risk of getting into an accident driving at speed. If you want to see how your car impacts your insurance, you can check which insurance group it’s in for an indication.  
The best car insurance companies have a few things in common: They have straightforward shopping experiences, take good care of policyholders after a crash and treat their customers with respect and courtesy. That means only insurers with high customer satisfaction scores and relatively few complaints to insurance commissioners make it to the top of our list of the best auto insurance companies.
