To give you an idea of how much it could cost you to insure your Mercedes A-Class, we ran a number of quotes to find an average figure. Our results estimated that, on average, you could insure your Mercedes A-Class with a comprehensive policy for monthly payments of £63.66, or an annual payment of £681.44.

What other factors affect my Mercedes-Benz A-class insurance rate?

We’ve covered insurance groups and age. Here are some of the other factors that affect your insurance premium costs:

  • Your car’s safety rating, security and any anti-theft precautions
  • Annual mileage
  • Your driving history and activity
  • No claims discount

How can I save on my Mercedes A-Class premiums?

When searching for car insurance, you’ll want to find the best deal for a price that’s within your budget. We’ve uncovered some tricks you can try to lower the cost of your premium: take a look below.

  • Pay annually rather than monthly. It might be scary to part with a large sum of money in one go, but if you’re able to pay annually you can save an average of £82.48 a year.
  • Limit your car usage (where possible) Occasionally deciding to walk or get public transport, rather than using your car, can help to save on your premiums.
  • Don’t just accept your renewal quote. When it’s time for renewal, it’s worth investing a couple of hours to shop around: there may be cheaper options out there.
  • Install extra safety precautions. The safer your vehicle is, the lower your premium is likely to be.

Is a Mercedes-Benz A-class cheap to insure?

Finder insurance expert Danny Butler answers

Let’s say you’re doing everything you can from the list above: you’re driving less, you’re paying annually, you’re shopping around for insurance quotes. Does that mean you’ll find a Mercedes-Benz A-class cheap to insure?

The short answer is no: as the Mercedes A-class is a more expensive car, it won’t be cheap to insure.

The longer answer is that, as with any make of car, the cost of your insurance will depend on many things, including the model you go for and which insurance group it’s in. Mercedes-Benz A-class models range from insurance groups 17 to 37, so none of them have the cheapest insurance costs on the market; but you can look for models in lower insurance groups to keep your costs down.

One factor affecting insurance groups is engine size. The size of engine in an A-class varies depending on the model you choose, with some models having smaller engines (like the 1.3 base petrol engine), and some going up to a 2.0 engine of varying strengths. You can also choose between petrol and diesel engines, with different levels of performance.

Finally, the safer your car is, the lower your premium is likely to be.

How safe is Mercedes A-Class?

When tested by Euro NCAP in 2018, the Mercedes A-Class was awarded a 5/5 rating for safety. It was given an excellent score of 93% for adult occupant safety, and scored an impressive 86% for safety assist due to its standard safety features.

As mentioned earlier on, the safer your car is, the less of a risk it is for companies to insure. The Mercedes A-Class could be a great investment for lower premiums due to its safety features. As standard, it comes with basic features such as a Seat Belt reminder, as well as ESC, or electronic stability control, to help keep your car gripped to the road. It has speed assistance to help make sure you travel at the legal speed limit, lane-keeping assist to stop you drifting, and a reversing camera to prevent any accidental bumps.

Even more impressively, the Mercedes A-Class comes with Active Brake Assist, which warns you if the distance in front of your car is insufficient, and can alert you audibly if it detects a collision. In addition, it can brake for you or increase your braking in the event of an emergency, helping you come to a quicker stop.

There are a selection of extra safety measures that are optional to the Mercedes A-Class, such as front and rear parking sensors, that you may wish to consider.

Bottom line

If you’re the owner of an A-Class, you’ll no doubt want to keep your premiums down.

With the lowest insurance group for an A-Class model starting at group 17, it’s important not to take the easy option of auto-renewing your car insurance. Chances are, you’ll pay over the odds. Do a little research and compare deals to find the right cover for you at a price that you’re happy with.
