So which is cheaper to insure, or are they about the same, or is the Evo higher? Ive been reading that as far as the Evo goes it is being insured a basically the regular Lancer, is this true :confused:

The Evo should be more expensive since its not your average sedan its a Turbo and AWD and not to mention its a Rally car!!! What can make RSX-S expensive is its Acura (luxury) 2 door sprorts car and its a Type S with 200hp. The word "Turbo" is very hot for insurers (sp).

The EVO is listed as a performance sedan.

I wanna trade my Type S in for an EVO too, but my Insurance will go up a little and so will my car payments so some more saving is in order.

Its true! The RSX is very expensive to insure.

A guy posted here who traded in his C5 Vette for a RSXS because he moved to colder climate...and he was blown away that the type S was more expensive to insure than his C5.

i considered the EVO trade in (before I saw how ugly the inside is) and my insurance would have been $34.50 a month more vs. the Type-S.

I also read in your sig this:
--yeah yeah i know the rsx is nicer...but i sacrificed that for speed

I couldn't believe when I read your post that it was that much cheaper to insure and I'm just curious as to what is nicer about the RSX then WRX. I'm more curious about the interior, shifter and stuff like that. Since I know what it can do performace wise. I wanted an EVO but I don't know if I can afford one and the mod it like I want to. Is the interior equal to the EVOs minus the Recaros. I just really want AWD.

I was pretty pissed to hear that my new to me 2002 RSX-S is going to cost $300 more per year to insure than my 2002 Honda S2000.
As much as you would like to think its based on vehicle performance or cost or how many doors... its based on estimated repair costs. You guys keep wrecking the RSX and the insurance companies have to get that money from somewhere. MY POCKET!
The average age and driving ability of the RSX is a lot younger(worse) than the average S2000 and possibly Evo owner and therefore the insurance is higher.
Thankfully I will be 30 soon and that is a big cut in rates.

from teh guys on here that have traded their rsx in for an evo, it seems most actually went down in insurance. and i think they do count it as a regular lancer. i know they do thta for the wrx, count as a regular impreza. or at least State Farm does this.
