The Mazda RX-8 is a very popular sports car equipped with a long list of safety features. Mazda vehicles have a long proven safety record and viewed as very reliable cars by car insurance companies. The Mazda RX-8 comes in 3 models including the Sport, Grand Touring and R3 model with a base price just under $27,000.

Mazda RX-8 Car Insurance Rates

Car insurance rates for the Mazda RX 8 will depend on your profile and the car insurance company but for most drivers average annual car insurance premiums will run between $1,100 to $1,500.

What car insurance discounts are available?

Many car insurance discounts are available based on factors outside of the car insured (such as the good driver and multi-policy discounts) however the Mazda RX-8 certainly brings many safety features to the table allowing owners to benefit from vehicle safety insurance discounts. Some of the standard/optional safety features available on the Mazda RX-8 include:

  • Airbags
  • Active Safety Constraints
  • Reinforced Body Structure
  • Antilock Brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution
  • Dynamic Stability Control
  • Traction Control System

Although not all features are standard even the Base Model Mazda RX-8 still provides many vehicle safety features car insurance companies provide discounts for.

The Mazda RX-8 is also a very unique car in the fact that it is a rotary engine vehicle (like the extremely popular RX-7) however the RX-8 has seen a lackluster following at best. According to SportsCarMonitor.com Mazda barely moved 500 units in the first half of 2010 and will terminate sales in the USA after the 2010 model.

Good new is that car insurance rates for older vehicles are always much cheaper than new ones so if you need auto insurance for a RX-8 and can only buy previously owned models you will benefit from cheaper car insurance rates on a used car.
