The Mercedes-Benz automobile is one of the most pre-eminent car brands in the world. In fact, Mercedes-Benz is the leading seller in the luxury segment of the market, selling over 2 million units per year. Their product line has expanded with the times and in addition to the classic sedan, they offer SUVs, passenger vans, commercial vans, convertibles and sports cars. Benz is part of the Daimler AG corporation headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany. Daimler doesn’t just make cars – they have well respected products in the truck and bus segments of the market. They are the 13th largest auto manufacturer in the world and in recent years have been selling over 3 million vehicles annually with production facilities the world over. Their vehicles have had a long history of comfort, reliability, and good engineering. The company’s origins go all the way back to the late 1880’s to founder Karl Benz’s internal combustion vehicle, so the company is one of the true founders of the automobile age.
Car insurance costs for luxury vehicles are generally at the high end of the spectrum. Top quality parts and materials cost more to repair and replace than mid-market or economy cars and insurers will pass those costs on to their customers. Somewhat balancing out the high repair costs is the fact that Mercedes-Benz cars are not a particularly big target of car thieves. Also, their high safety rating means that they have statistically fewer serious personal injuries from accidents, so that tempers the sticker shock for insurance a bit. A C Class Mercedes will cost less to insure than an S class or a Sprinter but keep in mind that there are a lot of personal factors that will help determine your annual insurance premiums. Insurers will look at your driving safety record, your place of residence and your age, among other things, before offering you a quote for coverage. If you own a luxury vehicle like a Mercedes, you should seriously consider getting a full suite of financial protection for your car. Look at adding collision and comprehensive insurance at the very least to your standard liability policy.

You won’t have a problem finding a car insurance company willing to offer you coverage for your Benz. But don’t limit your search to just the nationally advertised brans like GEICO and Progressive. Smaller carriers like Erie, Allied, and Mercury can often give low rate as well as outstanding customer service.
Mercedes-Benz typically offers new car buyers in the United States a generous 4 year, 50,000 roadside assistance program as part of your purchase of your vehicle, or for as long as it is under its standard warranty. The program covers the typical roadside assistance events: flat tires, dead battery, lockout, and emergency fuel delivery. Check your agreement for full details.
