How much does a Mercedes-Benz cost to insure?

For 130 years Mercedes Benz has been making its high-end and luxurious cars. While they may cost a lot to buy, you also need to think about the car insurance costs.

From sports cars to sedans, there’s a huge range to choose from. As they are expensive, the cost of repairs or replacement are also high, and therefore so is the insurance. It’s worth shopping around to make sure you find the best price and policy for you.

The cost of Mercedes-Benz insurance depends on lots of different factors. To start with, all insurers place cars into insurance groups depending on their features. They look at things like the value and age of a car and how powerful it is.

There are 50 different insurance groups. The cheapest will have a lower number and the most expensive will be nearer to 50.

Other factors include the age, address and profession of the main driver as well as the make, age and model of the Mercedes. These will all play a part when an insurer calculates the cost of car insurance.

Therefore, before you splash out on a new Mercedes, it’s important to make sure you can afford the insurance policy. Don’t forget to factor in the running costs including petrol, road tax and parking fees if they apply.

To give you a rough idea of the kind of price* you might be faced with, here we’ve picked out a few examples of the price of insurance for some of the most popular models of Mercedes-Benz.

The cost of insurance for one of the most popular models in the A-Class, the A180 CDI BlueEfficiency Sport, averages out at an annual premium of £1,229*.

For C-Class cars, our customers paid an average insurance price of £1,223* for the C220d AMG Line edition while the Premium edition of the same vehicle costs £225 more at £1,448*.

If you’re eyeing up an E-Class, the popular E220d AMG Line can be insured for an average of £1,214*, while the E220d SE is going to set you back around £1,105* per year.

Insurance for the SLK, the popular roadster, is pretty reasonable compared to other Mercedes. The SLK250 AMG CDI Sport will cost you around £500*, while a droptop SLK200K 163bhp convertible will cost just under £100 more at £599*.

If it’s the S-Class you’re considering, an S320 is likely to set you back in the region of £1,942* in insurance costs each year.

The actual price you pay will depend on lots of factors, but these examples are from quotes carried out on Confused.com.

It’s always worth comparing the cost of car insurance before you buy to make sure you’re choosing the right policy at the best price. Make sure you read the terms and conditions and check out customer reviews of the insurer before you sign on the dotted line.

Mercedes A-Class

The A-Class was one of Britain's best-selling new cars last year, according to figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).

The C-Class has been around since 1993 and is one of Mercedes-Benz’s most popular models. Between 2014 and 2021, 2.5 million were sold globally. The latest generation of models was launched in 2021, all with electrified engines either as plug-in hybrids or mild hybrids.

There’s a lot of options to choose from with the C-Class from petrol, diesel, hybrid or plug-in hybrid to a saloon or an estate, and on-the-road prices start at £39,860 for a new car.

Mercedes E-class

You can choose from a saloon, estate, coupe or cabriolet with the E-Class, depending on the type of car you want and how much money you want to spend on it.

Prices start from £45,575 and the ‘E’ stands for Einspritzmotor, or 'fuel-injected engine' in English.

Mercedes SLK-class

Another popular model from Mercedes is the SLK-Class. These cars are compact luxury roadsters and were first available in 1996.

SLK stands for sportlich, leicht and kurz. Or sporty, lightweight, and short when translated into English.

The S-Class is a flagship Mercedes-Benz model and the seventh version of this classic car. First produced in 1972 and originally called the Sonderklasse, or special class, it's one of the most luxurious cars from the German car company.

Mercedes-Benz history and facts

If you’re after an instantly recognisable car, you can’t go wrong with a Mercedes-Benz - if you’ve got the budget for one.

The company, with its three-pointed star symbol, is well known for producing luxurious cars that come with a high price tag, from Formula One models to everyday cars you see on the road.

Its motto is ‘The Best or Nothing’ and this is encompassed in the quality and design of the cars, and the price tag.

The first petrol-powered car was produced by Karl Benz in 1886 and it is the oldest automotive brand still around today.

It was patented in 1886 and first marketed in 1901 by Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft, which is also known for creating the first motorcycle in 1885.

After the First World War, the two men formed a new partnership and in 1926 the first Mercedes-Benz cars were produced.

In 1958 it began selling its cars in America. In 1995 it created the first autonomous car, the W140 S-Class, which drove along the Autobahn in Germany on its own, fuelled using microprocessors.

Since then it has produced several well-known classic cars, has factories all over the world, and has most recently moved into the electric car market.
