The Mercedes B-Class is a people carrier with the style and class you’d expect from a Mercedes. It’s available with a wide range of trims, including diesel, hybrid and petrol engine options. It’s based on the A-Class, the executive car, which is the smallest in the Mercedes range. If you want a similar level of handling and zip that the A-Class has, with more space for the family and their luggage, this is a better option for you.

In this guide, we’ll look in more detail at car insurance costs for the Mercedes B-class and how you could save on your premiums.

Mercedes-Benz B-class insurance groups

Vehicles in the UK are categorised into insurance groups, ranging from 1 (the cheapest) to 50 (the most expensive), which partly determine the cost of your premium.

Mercedes B-class models range from group 10 to group 27. This means the cost of insurance can vary significantly between various B-class models, from the more affordable end of the spectrum to just into the pricier end of the range. For example, a 30-year-old driver in an average postcode could pay:

  • around £768 for cover on a Mercedes B-Class B180d AMG Line 5d, which is in insurance group 14
  • or around £830 for a group 22 car, like the Mercedes B-Class B220d AMG Line Premium Plus 5d Auto.

The insurance group a model is placed in depends on a number of factors including the model’s engine size and price.

However, the insurance group isn’t the only factor determining the cost of your car insurance: one of the most important other factors is your age. The younger you are, the more risk you represent to insurers, and the more you’re likely to pay for insurance.

That’s why, in the table below, we show you the cost you’d be likely to pay at a few different ages.

    Mercedes B-Class insurance cost by location

    The table above shows the average cost of Mercedes B-class insurance based on insurance groups and driver age. However, many other factors affect the cost of your car insurance premiums, and one of the biggest is where you are in the UK. Where you live helps determine the level of risk that your car may be stolen or that you’ll be involved in an accident, and this affects the cost of insurance.

    To demonstrate the power of the postcode, here are some average quotes for a 30-year-old living in three different locations. The quotes are for a Mercedes B-Class B200d AMG Line Premium Plus 5d.

    • Expensive: £968 (London SE1)
    • Average: £807 (Newcastle NE1)
    • Cheap: £597 (Galashiels TD1)

    What other factors affect the insurance rate for my Mercedes B-class?

    We’ve covered the impact of insurance group, driver age and location. Here are some of the other factors that affect your insurance premium costs:

    • The model of your car, particularly its engine size and capacity
    • Your car’s age
    • Your car’s safety rating score and security features
    • Your car’s anti-theft precautions
    • Your annual mileage
    • Your driving history and activity, including your no-claim discount
    • Your marital status, credit history and job

    How can I save on my Mercedes B-Class premium?

    When searching for 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.

    • 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.
    • Pay annually rather than monthly. It might be scary to part with a large sum in one go, but if you’re able to pay annually you may be able to save an average of £56.91 a year.
    • 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.

    Is a Mercedes B-class expensive 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 B-class cheap to insure?

    As we’ve already established, it depends on the model. One factor affecting insurance groups is engine size. In general, the bigger the engine, the higher the cost of your insurance, because these engines are more expensive to repair or replace. For example, it may cost £913 to insure a Mercedes B-Class B180d AMG Line 5d, while you may pay £1,022 for a Mercedes B-Class B220 4Matic Sport 5d Auto. That’s more than an extra £100 per year to insure a Mercedes B-Class with a larger, more powerful engine.

    One advantage of the Mercedes B-class is its safety rating. The safer your car is, the less of a risk it will be for companies to insure, and therefore the lower your premium is likely to be. In its Euro NCAP crash tests, the B-class achieved a full 5-star rating. This rating included a 96% rating for protecting adult occupants and 90% for protecting child occupants. Ask your insurer about additional safety and/or security features you could install to lower your premiums and keep you and your passengers safe.

    Bottom line

    For a Mercedes, the B-class is relatively cheap to insure, but you can use the tips in this guide to help keep your premiums down even further. If you’re on the lookout for a car insurance provider, check out our comprehensive list of the best car insurance companies in the UK.
