Read our review Mercedes-Benz A-Class 1997 - present

The third generation of the A-Class has got rid of the high roof and has a sleeker and longer look. This mid-sized family hatchback has a wide range of engines, and because it’s lower to the ground, the CO2 emissions have been cut to around 89g/km.

If you’re aged between 31 and 45, you could get insurance for around £945*.

Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 2014 - present

This sports car has a wealth of power that comes from its V8 engine, a direct competitor for the Porche 911, Jaguar F-Type, and Audi R8.

In the interior, the AMG GT Coupe comes with a wide central console, with the same multimedia system that’s seen in other Mercedes vehicles. It also has sport seats and a sports steering wheel as standard.

If you splashed out on the AMG GT Coupe, it’ll be no surprise that insurance won’t come cheap, due to the sheer power from the car.

Mercedes-Benz G-Class 1979 - present

The G-Class is a tough off-roader with a large engine. It’s well respected in its field, and has been continually evolving since it first started production in 1979. The added power of this 4x4 could also mean a more expensive repair bill if you have an accident.

Mercedes-Benz GLA 2013 - present

The GLA has the looks of an off-roader, but comes with hatchback-style performance. Although similar to the A-Class, the GLA comes with higher levels of comfort and a bigger boot. 

Available in both manual and automatic to suit your driving style, you could be looking at insurance for around £1,127* if you’re a driver aged 21 – 40.

Mercedes-Benz S-Class 1972 - present

The S-Class has an abundance of futuristic technology, which includes Magic Body Control suspension. This’ll constantly adjust to give you the most comfortable ride possible, using data from cameras to scan the road ahead for rough tarmac etc.

It was designed to excel on certain sections of the German autobahn network, where there’s no speed limit. It maintains consistent stability and performance at very high speeds, which would often strain other vehicles.

Drivers aged 41 – 65 could get insurance for £996* according to previous quotes.

Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 1954 - present

In a market with competition from the Porsche 911 Cabriolet, Mercedes has to pull out some stops. The new generation of the SL-Class has lost 140kgs and has a more powerful engine, making life more difficult for its rivals.

The SL-Class is a thirsty motor, which is typical of high-end performance cars. On average, if you’re aged between 41 and 55, you could get insurance for £577* depending on your circumstances.

The M-Class is known for its strong performance both on and off road. The exterior looks of the M-Class may not have changed much; however, the third generation comes with a simpler engine choice than its predecessor, and no longer has a seven-seat option. 

Insurance for the M-Class could be around £860* for 36 to 55 year olds.
