What Kinds of Insurance Do You Need for Your Subaru Impreza?

Bodily Injury Liability

If you cause an accident, you are legally responsible for the costs of any injuries sustained by other people involved in the incident. With bodily injury liability, your insurance pays for those costs up to the limits of the policy. In many areas of the country, there are laws about how much bodily injury liability coverage you have to carry. 

Property Damage Liability

If you cause damage to someone else's property, including their vehicle or building, your property damage liability coverage handles those costs, up to your policy's limits. Your agent can help you choose policy limits that meet your state's guidelines to help balance cost and coverage. 

Medical Payments/Personal Injury Protection

Depending on where you live, you'll choose between a medical payments policy and a personal injury protection policy. These insurance options provide coverage for costs associated with recovering from injuries from an accident. Personal injury protection also provides coverage for lost wages for you and your passengers if accident-related injuries make working impossible. 

Uninsured Motorist Coverage

While it would be nice if every driver had adequate auto insurance coverage, many choose to drive without legally required insurance. If you are in an accident with someone who doesn't have enough insurance, you could be left with a pile of bills. Uninsured and underinsured motorist insurance handles medical payments for you and your passengers as well as damage to your property for covered accidents.

Optional Coverage:


If you have collision coverage and you hit an object or are in an accident with another vehicle, your insurance company will pay to fix or repair your Impreza. You'll pay the deductible, and the insurance company will pay the rest of the bill, up to the vehicle's value. It may not be worth the extra money to have collision coverage on an older vehicle. Your agent can help you understand the pros and cons. 


If you hit an animal, your Impreza is vandalized, or a falling object like a tree branch hits your parked car, comprehensive coverage kicks in. You'll have to pay the deductible, of course. 

Glass Coverage

If you don't want to have to pay for glass coverage, like a broken windshield, out of pocket, consider a zero-deductible glass coverage plan. Your agent can help you figure out whether it's worth it to raise your auto insurance premium by a few dollars each month to get this protection. 

Gap Insurance

If you have a loan or lease on your Impreza and you are in an accident, you may owe more than your vehicle is worth. After an accident, your insurance company can declare your car a total loss and choose to pay you its fair market value. If that amount doesn't pay off your loan or lease, you'll have to pay the difference. Gap coverage covers the difference between your car's value and the total amount due. You may be offered this coverage at the dealership, but if you opted out, talk with your agent about whether it's a good idea to add it to your auto insurance policy. 

What Affects the Cost of Insurance for Your Subaru Impreza?

Annual Mileage: If you typically drive more than 10,000 to 15,000 miles per year, you may pay a slightly higher auto insurance premium. Spending extra time on the road increases your statistical likelihood of being in an accident. 

Your Driving Record: Drivers with moving violations or at-fault accidents on their record also pay more for car insurance. If you have a clean record, you could save as much as 40% on your auto insurance premiums. 

The Value of Your Vehicle: High-value vehicles cost more to repair, so driving a practical vehicle also saves you money on auto insurance.
