Finding affordable car insurance for a Hyundai Santa Fe in Texas is pretty simple for most people to do, but it relies on an enormous amount of factors such as the mileage of your daily commute, whether you are claim-free, and driving violations. Drivers pay on average $1,168 per year to insure their Santa Fe, but that figure is an estimate based upon a 40-year-old single male driver with full physical damage coverage and $500 deductibles.
The issue that arises when projecting rates is that it’s very likely that you may not be 40 years old (or even male), you might be married instead of single, or maybe your Santa Fe doesn’t need full coverage. This shows why the way we recommend to find the cheapest insurance price for your Hyundai is to put in the effort to do a thorough rate comparison.
The specific model of Santa Fe will have an impact the insurance rate, so the price you will pay to insure a Santa Fe GLS 2WD trim level will be $142 lower than the cost to insure the more well-appointed Santa Fe Limited 4WD trim level, as shown below.

Do you need full coverage?
Saving on auto insurance is important to the majority of drivers, and one of the quickest ways to save on the cost of insurance for a Hyundai Santa Fe is to buy only liability coverage. The information below shows the comparison of insurance rates when comparing full coverage to liability only. The premium estimates are based on no driving violations, no at-fault accidents, $1,000 deductibles, single marital status, and no other discounts are factored in.
As an average for all age groups, physical damage insurance costs an extra $1,993 per year more than insuring for liability only. That is a significant amount which raises the question if physical damage coverage is worth the money. There is no definitive rule to stop paying for physical damage coverage, but there is a broad guideline. If the yearly cost for physical damage coverage is more than around 10% of the replacement cost minus the deductible, then you may need to consider dropping full coverage.
For example, let’s pretend your vehicle’s replacement cost is $4,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled in an accident, the most your company would pay you is $3,000 after paying your policy deductible. If you are paying in excess of $300 a year for full coverage, then you might want to think about dropping full coverage.
There are some situations where dropping physical damage coverage is not a good plan. If you still owe a portion of the original loan, you must maintain physical damage coverage in order to keep the loan. Also, if your finances do not allow you to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is damaged, you should not consider dropping full coverage.
