Check out this site if you would like to see new rating system State Farm uses to rate vehicles for liability coverage, on basis of damage/injury the vehicles do to others. It gives the ratings for 2002-2005 models.

Prius gets an "A" which is the best rating :D , thereby lower liability premiums. 8)

Yes it is lower liability but higher collision and comp. so its a wash :?
Yes, appears so.

I think one of the more significant things about the rating system was to identify many large SUVs as a "C" (the lowest rating) on basis of damage they do to others.

I hope rating systems like this help motivate manufacturers to design them in a way that is safer to others...ie taking them off a truck platform, lowering their point of impact, decreasing their bulk & weight etc.
