Finding the best cheap insurance for a Subaru Outback relies on lots of different factors such as age of the driver, the likelihood of vehicle theft, and your driving record. Drivers in Colorado pay around $731 each year for Outback insurance, but that cost is an approximation calculated using a 50-year-old married male driver with full comprehensive and collision coverage and $1,000 deductibles.
When making auto insurance estimates, the issue arises that you're not a 50-year-old male, single instead of married, or maybe you prefer liability limits higher than required by Colorado state law. Even a minor difference in the factors used in pricing a policy can result in a big discrepancy in rates.

Bear in mind that those prices are averaged across all drivers and vehicles in Colorado and do not take into consideration an exact zip code location for a Subaru Outback. So the insurer that is most affordable for your situation may not even be in the top 21 companies shown above. That helps illustrate why you need to quote rates from many companies using your own specific driver and vehicle information.
Cost of full coverage
Saving money when shopping for car insurance should be important to most people, and one of the best ways to reduce the cost of insurance for a Subaru Outback is to not buy full coverage. The example below shows the difference between insurance prices with liability coverage only compared to full coverage. The rate quotes are based on no accidents or driving violations, $500 deductibles, drivers are single, and no discounts are applied to the premium.
If we average all the age groups together, full coverage on your policy costs an additional $1,995 per year over and above liability only. At some point, almost every driver questions if buying full coverage is a waste of money. There is no set rule to stop buying comp and collision coverage, but there is a general guideline. If the annual cost of your full coverage insurance is more than 10% of the replacement cost of your vehicle minus the policy deductible, then you might consider buying liability only.
For example, let's assume your vehicle's book value is $7,500 and you have $1,000 physical damage deductibles. If your vehicle is severely damaged, the most your company will settle for is $6,500 after the deductible is paid. If premium cost is more than $650 a year to have full coverage, then it's probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.
The illustration below highlights how deductible selection can increase or decrease insurance costs when trying to find cheap insurance for a Subaru Outback. The data assumes a married male driver, full physical damage coverage, and no discounts are applied to the premium.
In the chart above, a 30-year-old driver could pocket $336 a year by switching the physical damage coverage from a $100 deductible up to a $500 deductible, or save $510 by selecting a $1,000 deductible. Even younger insureds, like the 20-year-old example, could drop their prices up to $1,006 every year just by choosing higher deductibles when buying full coverage.
If you do raise deductibles, it is important to have plenty of savings on hand to enable you to pay the extra out-of-pocket expense. That is the one drawback of using higher deductibles.
Car insurance rates are higher with tickets and accidents
The common sense way to find the cheapest car insurance rates for an Outback is to drive carefully and avoid traffic citations and accidents. The example below demonstrates how traffic citations and accident claims increase insurance costs for different insured age categories. The rates are based on a single male driver, comprehensive and collision coverage, $1,000 deductibles, and no discounts are applied to the premium.
In the previous chart, the average cost of a car insurance policy per year with no violations or accidents is $1,676. Factor in one speeding ticket and the average cost swells to $1,891, an increase of $216 each year. Now include one accident along with the one speeding ticket and the 12-month cost of car insurance for a Subaru Outback jumps again to an average of $2,475. That's an increase of $799, or $67 per month, just for not driving safely!
