Buying cheaper coverage for a Subaru Outback is pretty easy for most people, but it is dependent upon a whole bunch of factors such as your age, your residence address, and any prior driving offenses you have. Drivers in Maryland pay around $1,200 each year for Outback insurance, but that price is a valuation calculated based on a 30-year-old single female driver with both comprehensive and collision coverage and $1,000 deductibles.
The issue with using an average estimated rate is the likelihood you are not 30 years old and maybe not even female, you might be married instead of single, and you need different coverage limits than the sample rates. Insurance is an individual thing, so the only real way to find the cheapest coverage for your Subaru is to just take the time to compare rates yourself. Rate quotes are easy and you will receive prices from some of the most affordable companies in Maryland.
The trim level of your vehicle will most likely have an effect on the cost of coverage, so the price to insure a Outback 2.5I trim level will be $174 lower than the cost to insure the more costly Outback 3.6R Limited trim level, as shown in the chart below.

The diagram below highlights how deductible choice can influence insurance premiums when researching cheap insurance for a Subaru Outback. The rates are based on a single male driver, comprehensive and collision coverage, and no discounts are applied.
In the chart above, a 30-year-old driver could pocket $466 a year by switching their comprehensive and collision coverages from a $100 deductible up to a $500 deductible, or save $704 by choosing a $1,000 deductible. Younger drivers, like the 20-year-old, could possibly save up to $1,348 each year just by choosing higher deductibles when buying full coverage.
When increasing deductibles, it is important to have enough spare savings to satisfy the extra out-of-pocket expense associated with higher deductibles.
Here’s why you should shop around
Maryland car insurance rates are impacted by many factors which can substantially decrease or increase the cost of your policy. Simply turning a year older, buying a home, or having a fender bender can trigger rate changes that can cause some rates to be cheaper than before. In addition to those changes, car insurance companies modify rates as often as every quarter to adjust for heavy claims or excess profits. A period of increased losses may result in additional premium costs, while a lower level of claims may cause more affordable Outback insurance rates.
