Buying the cheapest insurance for a Toyota Highlander depends on a lot of things such as whether you use your Highlander for business use, the likelihood of vehicle theft, and your policy deductibles. Drivers pay around $1,198 a year for Highlander insurance, but that is calculated based on a 30-year-old single male driver with both comprehensive and collision coverage and $500 deductibles.
The issue that arises when projecting rates is that it’s very likely that you are not 30 years old and maybe not even male, you might be married instead of single, or maybe you live in a different area as the quoted rates. Even a slight difference in the factors used in pricing a policy could end up with a large change in policy price.
Car insurance coverage is unique to each driver, so this is why the only real way to find the cheapest rates for your Toyota is to compare as many rates as you can.
Your Toyota’s trim level can impact the insurance rate, so the price you will pay to insure a Highlander 2WD model will be $194 less than the insurance cost for the fancier Highlander Hybrid Limited 4WD version, as demonstrated by the prices below.

Does it make sense to buy full coverage?
Finding the cheapest insurance should be important to most people, and one of the best ways to reduce the cost of insurance for a Toyota Highlander is to not buy full coverage. The example below illustrates the difference between premium costs with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying liability only. The rates are based on no tickets, no at-fault accidents, $500 deductibles, single status, and no discounts are applied to the premium.
Averaged for all age groups, physical damage coverage on your policy costs an additional $1,837 per year more than insuring for liability only. That proposes the question when is the right time to remove full coverage. There isn’t a steadfast formula of when to drop comp and collision coverage, but there is a broad guideline. If the yearly cost of comp and collision coverage is more than around 10% of any settlement you would receive from your insurance company, then you might want to think about dropping full coverage.
For example, let’s assume your vehicle’s replacement cost is $9,500 and you have $1,000 deductibles. If your vehicle is damaged in an accident, the most your company would pay you is $8,500 after you pay the deductible. If it’s costing in excess of $850 a year for full coverage, then it might be time to consider dropping full coverage.
There are a few situations where dropping physical damage coverage is not recommended. If you still owe a portion of the original loan, you must maintain physical damage coverage as part of the loan conditions. Also, if you can’t afford to buy a different vehicle in the event your current vehicle is totaled, you should not opt for liability only.
