Finding affordable auto insurance for a Toyota Tacoma is fairly simple, but it relies on a lot of rating factors such as whether you own a home, the likelihood of vehicle theft, and the deductible amount you use. Indiana drivers pay approximately $1,064 each year to insure their Tacoma, but that figure is an approximation using a 30-year-old single female driver with full physical damage coverage and $250 deductibles.
This brings up the issue that more than likely you're not a 30-year-old female, married instead of single, or maybe you're a renter instead of a homeowner. Insurance is an individual thing, so the only real way to find the most affordable coverage for your Toyota is to compare rates from as many companies as possible.
The specific trim level can impact price, so the price you will pay to insure a Tacoma 2WD trim level will be $62 cheaper than the price to insure the more expensive Tacoma Double Cab TRD Sport Package 4WD version, as shown in the chart below.

Last year's bargain might be this year's rip off
Indiana insurance rates are impacted by many things which can substantially change the cost of your policy. Simply having a birthday, buying a home, or having a fender bender can cause premium changes resulting in some rates now being more affordable than others.
In addition to those changes, companies change rates at least once a year as an adjustment for underwriting gains or losses. Higher than normal claims may cause additional price hikes, while lower claims may cause lower-cost Tacoma insurance rates.
To illustrate this point, the chart below compares the cheapest car insurance in Indiana for a 40-year-old male driver with no accidents or violations, and a good credit history. If we look at prices based on his personal profile, Travelers quotes the lowest car insurance rates in Indiana at $620 a year. This is $620 less than the average price paid by Indiana drivers of $1,240. Cincinnati Insurance, USAA, Erie, and The Hartford also make the list of the cheapest Indiana auto insurance companies.
The next chart shows rates after we give the driver from the first example a chargable accident, poor credit, and a stop sign violation. Due to the fact that each insurance company has a proprietary method for setting prices, analyzing rate quotes may result in a different ranking of the cheapest companies as shown below.
Indiana Farmers Mutual now has the lowest price on auto insurance in Indiana with Auto-Owners, USAA, Nationwide, and Motorists Mutual also having competitive pricing. This example shows why Indiana drivers need to perform an extensive rate comparison to get the lowest auto insurance quotes for a Toyota Tacoma. Auto insurance prices are determined by many different factors and can decrease or increase without notice, so the best option the last time you compared rates may now not even be in the top five.
