How Cars Measure Up

How Cars Measure Up

​​​The property and casualty insurance industry gathers and analyzes statistics on the number and cost of collision, comprehensive, direct compensation property damage (DCPD) and accident benefit claims for the most popular Canadian models of cars, passenger vans, SUVs and pickup trucks. 

Insurers track theft claims for these vehicles. This information includes the cost of these claims as well as how often these cars are stolen. The results give an accurate picture of how theft, collision and other claims affect the cost of car insurance​ for particular makes and models of cars.​​

This year’s edition of “How Cars Measure Up” presents the results for 2003 through 2015 models where at least 1,500 of each of the models were insured between 2011 and 2015. The information comes entirely from actual insurance claims data, collected from most of the car insurance companies in Canada.
