Which 10 Cars Do The Best Drivers Own? Not A Subaru Forester, Outback Or Crosstrek

Which car models do the best drivers own? They are not a 2021 Subaru Forester, Outback, or Crosstrek. Check out which 10 vehicles have the best drivers and the one Subaru model that has the worst drivers.

Everyone likes courteous drivers, and some car models with the best drivers seem to drive similar vehicles. A new study from Insurify identifies the top ten car models with the best drivers in 2021. They found the car models with the largest share of drivers with a clean record. Subaru has no models on the top ten list, and the three top-selling models, the 2021 Forester, Outback, and Crosstrek are not on the best drivers list.

You might guess minivans would be on the list, and you would be right. Six of the ten car models with the best drivers are minivans. Eight of the ten best drivers own a domestic car manufactured in the U.S., and Chevrolet has four models on the list. Some of the models are older, and some have been discontinued.

The top ten car models with the best drivers

Insurify says across all car models, 78.21 percent of drivers have a clean driving record. The Chevrolet Astro is number one, with 86.0 percent of drivers have a clean record. The next best drivers own a Chevrolet Uplander (85.23%), Dodge Caravan (85.04%), Ford Windstar (84.76%), Nissan Quest (84.56%), Cadillac Deville (83.74%), Toyota Sienna (83.59%), Chevrolet Corvette (83.19%), Chevrolet Lumina (82.91%) and Lincoln Navigator (82.90).

What vehicle has the worst drivers?

The vehicle with the worst drivers is a Subaru, the performance-tuned WRX and WRX STI. Insurify says, "The WRX boasts a 5-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, but drivers of this performance car receive a traffic citation 37 percent more often than the national average.

The insurance company also found that the WRX and STI, the Subaru Crosstrek, and Impreza make the top ten car models with the highest number of prior at-fault accidents. In another Insurify study, the Subaru WRX also makes the car models with the rudest drivers list at number four.

Click bait article.

Most of the vehicles listed are not even made anymore and haven't been for some time. How about updating this with vehicles that are still manufactured that people can relate to.

Don't know about your statistics, but in my experience, GMC drivers are the rudest, unsafest, most dangerous drivers. Something about rural roads?

I own a Outback and never had a ticket(every) or been a cause of a wreck. But I've had a few Chevys hit me because they weren't paying attention, like 1 driver was watching an airplane so he said.

I drive a Forester XT and it is a blast and yes I know what the red line is for (when appropriate). I find tricked up BMW 3 series the worst for road hooliganism and dangerous driving on dodgy suspension mods and low rent body kits.

I am driving my 4th Subaru Forester. I have never had an accident that was my fault, never had a ticket. I think this whole article is plain stupid. What kind of car a person drives doesn't make them a bad driver.
