The average insurance cost of a Mercedes-Benz is $208 a month, or $2,499 a year. This will set you back more versus insuring a Lexus ($2,114 a year on average) or a BMW ($2,234 a year on average).

About the Mercedes-Benz brand
Mercedes-Benz traces its origins to the 19th century, when Carl Benz created the first automobile — the “Motorwagen” — in 1886. In the same year, Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach constructed a petrol-powered stagecoach. The Mercedes-Benz brand was conceived decades later in 1926, through a merger of the companies founded by Daimler and Benz.
Over almost a century, Mercedes-Benz would craft coveted luxury cars and distribute them around the world. In 1963, the large and luxurious Mercedes-Benz 600 put the company in competition with the likes of Rolls-Royce, Bentley and Cadillac. The elegant and well-equipped S-Class collection arrived in the 1970s. And a collaboration with AMG in the 1990s infused Mercedes-Benz models with racecar-like performance improvements.
Today, Mercedes-Benz jostles with BMW, Audi and Lexus for the crown of bestselling luxury brand in the world. It’s the top-selling luxury marque in the United States, buoyed by the popular C-Class, GLE-Class and E-Class models.
