Mercedes-Benz is one of the world’s most prominent automakers, with a well established line of luxury cars. Mercedes vehicles are known to come with above average price tags, but the German traditional quality and durability are well worth the extra dollar spent. If you are looking for a car that won’t break down in the middle of the road and will offer you all the safety and comfort that you deserve, then a Mercedes-Benz is the right choice for you.
Mercedes-Benz cars aren’t cheap to insure, some not even by a long shot. As a matter of fact, eight vehicles from the Forbes top 10 most expensive 2013 models to insure are Mercedes-Benzes, and seven of them have average insurance quotes of over $3,000: CL600 with $3,357, CL65 AMG with $3,330, S65 AMG with $3,221, SL65 AMG with $3,207, CL63 AMG with $3,184, S600 with $3,158 and SL63 AMG with $3,075. The only one below $3,000, which is still the 8th most expensive car to insure for 2013, is the S63 AMG with an average quote of $2,978.
