Finding cheap auto insurance for a Toyota Corolla is pretty easy for most people to do, but it depends on a lot of rating criteria such as how old the vehicle is, the performance level of your vehicle, and blemishes on your driving record. Drivers in Wisconsin pay approximately $514 a year for Corolla insurance, but that cost is using a 40-year-old married female driver with full physical damage coverage and $1,000 deductibles.
Most likely you may not be 40 years old (or even female), possibly single instead of married, and maybe your Corolla just needs liability-only coverage. Even a minor difference in the criteria used to calculate rates could result in a significant change in rates.
This illustrates why the only real way to find the cheapest rates for your Toyota is to just take the time to compare rates yourself. Do a quick rate comparison now and you will get price quotes from the cheapest companies that offer coverage in Wisconsin.
Your vehicle’s trim level will be a contributing factor to the annual cost of coverage, so the price you pay to insure a Corolla LE will be $12 cheaper than the price to insure the more costly Corolla XRS model, as demonstrated by the prices below.

The diagram below shows how different deductible levels can affect insurance costs when searching for cheap insurance for a Toyota Corolla. The data is based on a married female driver, comprehensive and collision coverage, and no discounts are applied.
The chart above illustrates that a 50-year-old driver could lower rates by $212 a year by changing their physical damage coverage from a $100 deductible to a $500 deductible, or save $320 by switching to a $1,000 deductible. Even younger drivers, such as the 20-year-old example, could roll back prices as much as $524 annually just by choosing higher deductibles when buying full coverage. When choosing a higher deductible, it is necessary to have plenty of savings on hand to satisfy the extra out-of-pocket expense that comes with higher deductibles.
Does full coverage make sense?
Paying less for car insurance should be important to the majority of vehicle owners, and an effective way to reduce the cost of insurance for a Toyota Corolla is to not buy comprehensive and collision coverage. The chart below illustrates the difference between yearly insurance costs when comparing full coverage to liability only. The premiums are based on a clean driving record, no claims, $1,000 deductibles, marital status is single, and no discounts are applied to the premium.
On average, full coverage costs an extra $1,213 per year more than just insuring for liability. That amount may make you wonder if paying for full coverage is worth it. There is no specific rule to stop paying for physical damage coverage on your policy, but there is a general guideline. If the yearly cost of full coverage is more than 10% of the replacement cost minus the deductible, then you might consider buying liability only.
There are a few cases where only buying liability is not financially feasible. If you have an outstanding loan on your vehicle, you have to maintain full coverage in order to keep the loan. Also, if you can’t afford to buy a different vehicle in the event your current vehicle is totaled, you should not consider dropping full coverage.
