What Kind of Insurance Do You Need for Your Mercedes C Class?

Bodily injury liability

Bodily injury liability pays for the costs of medical care and recovery if someone is hurt in an accident you cause while driving your Mercedes C Class. 

Property damage liability

Property damage liability insurance may be legally required, but think about purchasing more than the minimum amount. Your agent can help you decide which level of liability insurance may work best for you. 

Medical payments/Personal injury protection

Medical payments insurance or personal injury protection insurance may be required where you live. This policy pays for the costs associated with physical recovery for those hurt in a car accident. 

Uninsured motorist coverage

Uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage protects you from the financial problems that can come with being involved in an accident if the other person doesn't have the right amounts or types of auto insurance. Without it, you could be responsible for paying to fix or replace your Mercedes on your own. 

Optional Coverage:


Collision insurance coverage replaces or repairs your Mercedes C Class if you are in an accident with another vehicle or you hit an object. Depending on the value of your car, this coverage may or may not be the right choice. 


If your Mercedes is damaged in an accident with an animal or falling object, comprehensive insurance coverage pays to replace or repair your car, minus the deductible. This coverage handles damage caused by anything not covered in your collision insurance policy. 

Glass coverage

Replacing a Mercedes windshield can be expensive. In many cases, you'll have to have the work done at a Mercedes dealership. A zero-deductible glass coverage insurance policy add-on is an inexpensive way to protect you from having to pay those costs out-of-pocket. 

Gap insurance

If you owe more on your Mercedes than it's worth, check to see if you have gap insurance. If not, you can easily add it to your auto insurance policy. Without this coverage, you'll be responsible for paying the "gap" between the insurance company's settlement and the outstanding amount on your loan if you are in an accident that totals your car. 

What Affects the Cost of Insurance for Your Mercedes C Class?

Annual mileage: If you plan to drive your C Class more than 10,000 to 15,000 miles each year, you may pay elevated insurance rates. 

Your driving record: Drivers with multiple speeding tickets or accidents on their records should expect to pay higher insurance rates than those with a spotless driving record. 

The value of your vehicle: The Mercedes C Class is a luxury vehicle with a higher-than-average price tag, which could contribute to higher insurance premiums.
