Cars most likely to be involved in accidents

Sports car

Data from Insurify shows which models have the most accident-prone drivers behind the wheel. It also shows the proportion of the drivers of said vehicles with an at-fault accident on record in the past seven years, based on Insurify’s analysis of over 4 million car insurance applications. For reference, the national average is 10.78%, and each of these vehicles’ drivers represent a statistically significant increase over that.

Now, it would be easy to infer that these cars are dangerous, but such is not necessarily the case. Remember, drivers cause accidents, not cars. These just happen to be the cars that accident-prone drivers drive. You’ll notice that many are mainstream, affordable cars, often with decent crash ratings.

Also keep in mind that vehicle accidents are up since the beginning of the pandemic, so no matter what you drive, please drive safely.

This affordable, electrified vehicle platform sneaks into this list with 14.45% of drivers with a recent at-fault accident on record.

9. Lexus CT

Another hybrid, this Prius-powered Lexus beats the national average at 14.57%.
