So you're saying a 2 door Honda civic is the same on insurance as a 4 door? I don't believe. Lol

Makes me wanna find a 2008 4 door, get the vin and call the ins. To find out

Not what I'm saying. If it is more then it is because the historical accident frequency and repair costs have proven to be higher than a 4 door. Your statement implied the belief that premiums are higher just because of the number of doors.

Well .... I'm semi inserting my foot in my mouth. A quick google of the subject KINDA shows you may be right weeyari. Rates are based on safety, driver record etc. But IF 2 door cars are typically involved in more accidents, you may pay more. But it appears premiums aren't just higher cause there's 2 doors.

I spent most of my professional life in the IT department of a major Canadian insurer. Worked extensively in the data analytics and programs involved in managing rating. I hear a lot of misconceptions which are mostly fueled by the hate and mistrust directed toward insurers. It is after all, the greatest cash outlay in our lives which, if you are lucky, will never give you anything in return.

Yea I'm one of them. Can't stand the bastards. Jack your rates for no reason, then when you call to cancel they can magically offer you a rate lower than what you were paying. Every 2 years i have to switch companies for the lowest rate. No sense in paying more than you have to when you know the only time they pay out without a fight is if you were rear ended sitting at a red light. I have no trust, faith, or good things to say about insurance companies. Government sponsored fraud.

4 door anything is more popular in american 3 door modern yarises did not sell because there is no market for them, everyone it isnt the 90s and early 2000s anymore, people uber and whatnot making 4doors very popular, nobody races anymore and barely anyone buys the yaris 2018 sold 1,000 something.

if 3 doors were popular toyota wise then they would sell, using old models and old figures is just clutching at your pearls.

Also, four doors are great for non-human passengers. Great for transporting pets, which is why I have the four-door.

While you are right about this, I did pay more for my 05 Echo 3 doors than I would have on a 05 Echo RS 5 doors. I was told by the agent the 2 doors was categorized as sports, so it'd cost more.. and it was my first new car at the time.

Honestly, I should have bought a Celica or something back in the days.
