Buying cheaper insurance for a Ford Fusion in Arizona depends on a complex formula that considers things such as how safe your vehicle is, your credit score, and if you have tickets or violations. Drivers in Arizona pay on average $774 annually to insure their Fusion, but that is a valuation based on a 30-year-old married female driver with full physical damage coverage and $1,000 deductibles.
There is a good probability you aren't exactly 30 years old or even a female, single instead of married, and maybe your Fusion is older and does not require full coverage. Insurance is an individual thing, so the best way to find the cheapest insurance price for your Ford is to put in the effort to do a thorough rate comparison.
The trim level of your Ford will be a contributing factor to the yearly cost, so the rate you pay to insure a Fusion S 4-Dr Sedan trim level will be $122 cheaper than the insurance cost for the more well-appointed Fusion Sport AWD 4-Dr Sedan trim level, as shown in the prices below.
|Model||Comp||Collision||Liability||Medical||UM/UIM||Annual Premium||Monthly Premium|
|Fusion S 4-Dr Sedan||$138||$240||$306||$18||$92||$794||$66|
|Fusion SE 4-Dr Sedan||$156||$284||$306||$18||$92||$856||$71|
|Fusion Hybrid 4-Dr Sedan||$156||$326||$382||$22||$114||$1,000||$83|
|Fusion SEL 4-Dr Sedan||$156||$284||$306||$18||$92||$856||$71|
|Fusion Sport 4-Dr Sedan||$156||$284||$306||$18||$92||$856||$71|
|Fusion SEL AWD 4-Dr Sedan||$174||$326||$306||$18||$92||$916||$76|
|Fusion Sport AWD 4-Dr Sedan||$174||$326||$306||$18||$92||$916||$76|

Be aware that those rates are averages for all drivers and vehicles in Arizona and are not factoring in a specific zip code for a Ford Fusion. So the auto insurance company that can offer the best rates for your situation may not even be in the top 28 companies in the list above. That points out the importance of why you need to get quotes using your own driver and vehicle profiles.
Safe drivers pay less for insurance
The common sense way to obtain the cheapest insurance rates in Mesa for a Fusion is to be a cautious driver and have a clean driving record. The example below demonstrates how traffic citations and at-fault claims drive up auto insurance rates for different age groups of insureds. The data is based on a single male driver, comprehensive and collision coverage, $250 deductibles, and no discounts are applied to the premium.
The chart shows that the average cost of car insurance in Mesa per year with no accidents and a clean driving record is $2,035. Get written up for one speeding ticket and the average cost surges to $2,291, an increase of $256 each year. Now add two accidents along with the one speeding ticket and the annual cost of insurance for a Ford Fusion goes up to an average of $4,443. That's an increase of $2,408, or $201 per month, just for not being attentive to the road!
The chart below highlights how deductible choice can change insurance prices when researching cheap insurance for a Ford Fusion. The price estimates are based on a single male driver, full coverage, and no discounts are taken into consideration.
In the chart above, a 50-year-old driver could lower their policy premium by $296 a year by switching their comprehensive and collision coverages from a $100 deductible up to a $500 deductible, or save $446 by changing to a $1,000 deductible. Even younger insureds, like the age 20 example, can cut up to $972 each year just by using higher deductibles.
When increasing deductibles, it is important to have enough spare savings to be able to pay the extra out-of-pocket expense, which is the primary disadvantage of high deductibles.
Compare quotes and save
Mesa, AZ insurance rates are influenced by many factors that may substantially change the price you pay. Simply improving your credit, becoming a homeowner, or getting a driving violation can trigger price changes resulting in some companies being more affordable than competitors.
And not only may your rating factors change, but insurance companies change prices without warning as an adjustment for underwriting gains or losses. Higher than normal claims may cause high rates, while a better loss history may produce cheaper Fusion insurance rates.
To illustrate this point, the chart below shows rates for the cheapest car insurance in Mesa, AZ for a 35-year-old male driver with no prior claims, no tickets, and great credit.

This is $314 less than the average price paid by Arizona drivers of $1,428. Safeco, Auto-Owners, Travelers, and USAA also make the list of the best Mesa, AZ auto insurance companies.
