Buying the cheapest car insurance for a Nissan Sentra is pretty simple for most people to do, but it is dependent upon a lot of things such as your marital status, your profession, and physical damage deductibles. Drivers in Florida will pay around $1,174 a year for Sentra insurance, but that figure is using a 40-year-old single female driver with both comprehensive and collision coverage and $1,000 deductibles.
When estimating a car insurance rate like we just did, the issue is that you may not be 40 years old (or even female), possibly married instead of single, and maybe your Sentra is older and does not require full coverage. Just a minor difference in rating criteria or coverage limits could end up in a significant change in how much insurance for a Nissan Sentra costs.
Auto insurance is unique to each driver, so the only way to find cheap insurance rates for your Nissan is to just compare rates yourself. Price quotes are quick and you will get price quotes from the best auto insurance companies in Florida.
Vehicle trim level tends to impact the yearly cost, so the rate you will pay to insure a Sentra 2 model will be $164 less than the price to insure the higher-end Sentra SE-R SPEC V model, as shown in the chart below.
|Model||Comp||Collision||Liability||Medical||UM/UIM||Annual Premium||Monthly Premium|

Violations and accidents raise rates
A great way to score the cheapest car insurance prices in Florida for a Sentra is to be a good driver and avoid getting tickets or having accidents. The example below shows how violations and at-fault claims can impact car insurance rates for different age groups of insureds. The rates are based on a single female driver, comprehensive and collision coverage, $100 deductibles, and no discounts are applied.
In the prior example, the average cost of an auto insurance policy in Florida per year with no accidents or violations is $2,826. Get one speeding ticket and the average cost swells to $3,202, an increase of $376 each year. Next add one accident along with the one speeding ticket and the yearly cost of car insurance for a Nissan Sentra goes up to an average of $4,299. That’s an increase of $1,473, or $123 per month, just for not driving responsibly!
