Some of The Most Expensive Cars to Insure in The US Are Mercedes-Benz

Somewhat expected, some of the costliest cars to insure in the land of the free come from Stuttgart, with Mercedes-Benz offering no less than seven different models which need a small fortune to be insures in the United States according to Quadrant Information Services, which was commissioned by Insure.com to provide average auto insurance rates for MY 2014 cars.

With the average insurance rates calculated using information from six large data carriers (Allstate, Farmers, GEICO, Nationwide, State Farm and Progressive), more than 850 different car models were included in the study made for 2014.

Among those, Mercedes-Benz showed up seven times in the top twenty, with the most expensive car to insure being the CL 550 4Matic (C216) model, while the GL 550 4Matic (X166) SUV being last on the list.

The Mercedes-Benz CL is soon to be replaced by the recently-unveiled S-Class Coupe (C217), but the current MY2014 CL 550 4Matic is now the second model in the list of costliest cars to insure in the United States, with the number one spot going to the Nissan GT-R Track Edition.

Number four in the top twenty belongs somewhat expectedly to the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT, which is soon to be going out of production and having an average insurance rate of $2,986.

Down in the seventh place comes the G 63 AMG, with an average insurance rate of $2,887, while the GL 63 AMG (X166), CLS 550 4Matic (C218), soon-to-be-demised C 63 AMG (W204) and the GL 550 4Matic (X166) filling the rest of the list.

The news isn't exactly coming out of nowhere, with many of the aforementioned models costing a whole bunch of moolah to begin with, while others being some of the fastest and therefore easiest to crash cars on the market.
