Brentwood ranked as having the fourth cheapest car insurance rates in Tennessee, according to a study by data analyst firm Value Penguin.
The auto insurance rate in Brentwood is $857 per year. By comparison, Kingsport, Tenn. was ranked the cheapest with $813 annually, and Memphis the most expensive with $1,212 per year. The average car insurance rate across the state of Tennessee was $916 per year.
The report lists low population density and low crime rates as two common factors for cities with inexpensive auto insurance rates.
“The county where Brentwood is located, Williamson, is considered to be among the 15 most affluent counties in all of the country,” the report determined. “In this case the wealth of Brentwood translates into an incredibly low crime rate throughout the city.”
