Top 10: Lowest Insurance Group Mercedes-Benz cars

Mercedes-Benz is a name that conjures up images of redoubtable saloons and estates or svelte sports cars. ...and high insurance costs. There’s also a top hat-full of SUVs to choose from now as well, along with some more niche models such as their Shooting Brake wagons. Whichever car attracts your attention with a three-pointed star on the prow, you should be able to find one that softens the blow of insurance costs. Here are our Top 10 picks.

Mercedes-Benz A180d 1.5 SE – Insurance Group 13

This A-Class was almost as radical in its design as the original from Mercedes-Benz. Gone was the upright styling and they said goodbye to the ‘sandwich’ floor, where the engine was slung underneath. In their place is this much more formulaic small hatch design, but don’t dismiss it for that.

The A-Class might be more aligned with others in its sector now, but it offers good space, comfort and even driving fun. Choosing this A180d does temper how much excitement you’ll have, but it’s frugal and Group 13 insurance is not to be sniffed at.

Mercedes-Benz C220d Coupe Sport – Insurance Group 31

Frankly, Mercedes could have trimmed the C-Class Coupe in barbed wire and used concrete in place of the suspension and this would still be a jaw-loweringly desirable car. Its looks alone will have you signing on the dotted line, but it all of the other attributes that will leave you satisfied long after.

Agile handling, unflustered ride and whisper quiet refinement make it ideal in any situation. The cabin is classy, there are plenty of options to upgrade with and even the rear seats are usable by normal people. Stick with the 220d Sport version and even the insurance will make you smile.

Mercedes-Benz C200d Estate SE – Insurance Group 24

The C-Class Estate embodies all that Mercedes-Benz holds dear and that’s hardly a surprise when this range accounts for such a large slice of the company’s sales. That also explains why they haven’t messed with the successful C-Class wagon formula of good if not sector-leading space, superb comfort and build quality that would impress even a Swiss watchmaker.

Sitting in Group 24 for insurance, this C200D model is not going to quicken your pulse with its performance, but economy is good and it smooches along quietly other than a hint of tyre noise at higher speeds.

Mercedes-Benz CLA 180 Shooting Brake AMG Line – Insurance Group 20

Almost as if Mercedes-Benz forgot to lock the design studio door when there was a factory visit by some teenagers, the GLA Shooting Brake is not what you initially expect from this firm. Look more closely, however, and it’s an estate version of the A-Class.

Just like its CLS big brother, the CLA Shooting Brake offers a flutter of design flair while retaining sensible underwear. The roofline pinches a bit of passenger and luggage space, but the 1.6-litre petrol motor is perky and keeps insurance at a pleasingly low rate.

Mercedes-Benz E220d SE – Insurance Group 28

One in every five Mercedes-Benz cars that rolls out of the factory gates is an E-Class. It’s the company’s core model and the E220d is a huge seller thanks to its popularity with company car drivers, private buyers and Munich’s taxi brigade.

It’s an easy car to love thanks to its S-Class-alike looks, space and comfort. The handling is lighter on its toes than you’d expect and it’s also light on fuel in this specification. Just as happily, a Group 28 insurance ranking makes it the cheapest E-Class to get cover for.

Mercedes-Benz GLC 220d SE Executive – Insurance Group 28

Compare the Mercedes-Benz GLC with its nearest rivals from Audi and BMW and you’ll find the three-pointed star car is a bit pricier. That should not deter you, especially when you can have it with Group 27 insurance.

Further proof of its value comes in the way the GLC seals out the hubbub of the world from the cabin. It’s brilliantly refined, while the turbodiesel engine is easy on fuel and offers a nifty turn of speed. Heck, the GLC can even cope with a bit of off-roading. Who’d have thought that possible in an SUV?

Mercedes-Benz SLC 180 AMG Line – Insurance Group 41

If the SLC looks a lot like an updated SLK, that’s because this is precisely what Mercedes-Benz has done. Along with the name change, there were tweaks to the styling, but more importantly a new nine-speed gearbox joined the fray.

To keep insurance at the more purse-assuaging end of the spectrum, you’ll be looking at the SLC 180 AMG Line. If what you’re after is a plush roadster with clever folding metal roof, look no further. If it’s something more sporting you want, the Porsche Boxster is the one to have.

Mercedes-Benz S300Lh AMG Line Executive – Insurance Group 45

You might think anyone buying a Mercedes-Benz S-Class is not going to worry about insurance costs, but nothing could be further from the truth. Many of these cars are hard-working limos, so every penny counts in the business plan and Group 45 insurance for this version does the trick.

If you choose the S300Lh, you also have the added bonus of 65.7mpg combined economy thanks its hybrid drivetrain. You’ll also revel in the massaging ride comfort, refinement and space, plus a host of standard kit.

Mercedes-Benz GLE 250d Sport Premium – Insurance Group 41

The Mercedes-Benz GLE is a car that you really have to want. This is because its direct rivals from Audi, BMW, Land Rover and Volvo are all more affordable and, bluntly, better to drive. So, if you must have a GLE, we’d guide you towards this 250d Sport Premium to keep insurance costs in check.

The 2.1-litre turbodiesel is a little slow off the mark and less refined than much of the competition, but economy is reasonable. You also get a fair spread of standard kit in the GLE, though that only seems fair given its list price.

Mercedes-Benz CLS 220d AMG Line Premium – Insurance Group 37

Fancy an E-Class but want something a touch more dashing? Say hello to the Mercedes-Benz CLS. Billed as a four-door coupe, it means sacrificing a little rear headroom and boot space, but those are small prices to pay for such a handsome fast back.

You could go for the full noise AMG models if money isn’t a concern, but for the rest of us the CLS 220d works just fine, thank you. It doesn’t deliver rocket ship performance, but 57.6mpg and Group 37 insurance mean you can enjoy this sleek style while not worrying it’s come at too high a price.
