Most expensive 2013 cars to insureMercedes-Benz drivers must have worked hard in the past year to increase insurance claims costs and thus their auto insurance rates. Mercedes models control half the list of the 20 “most expensive vehicles to insure” for 2013 models.

The 12-cylinder Mercedes-Benz CL600 coupe earns the unenviable top spot for the highest national average car insurance rates.  AutoTrader.com notes the car’s “blistering acceleration.” The next sounds you hear may be squealing brakes and cracking metal: Expensive claims have propelled the CL600’s rates.

With an MSRP of about $160,000 and an annual average insurance bill of $3,357 (and that’s for a good driver), the CL600 is expensive driveway candy.

It could be worse.  When we look at state-specific auto insurance rates, we see that insuring an Audi R8 5.2 Quattro in Washington, D.C., costs an average of $6,009.

The table below shows the 2013 models with the highest insurance premiums.
Of course, the most expensive vehicles for you to insure will depend on your driving record and other personal information.  The best way to find out what you’ll pay is to contact us for a quote before you buy.

Averages are based on insurance for a single 40-year-old male who commutes 12 miles to work each day, with policy limits of 100/300/50 ($100,000 for injury liability for one person, $300,000 for all injuries and $50,000 for property damage in an accident) and a $500 deductible on collision and comprehensive coverage.

Cheapest Cars To Insure 2013Discover which vehicles offer the most affordable insurance premiums.

When you’re enticed by a new car, it’s easy to overlook practical costs such as insurance premiums.  However, depending on the vehicle, these costs could add significantly to what you spend.

For the 2013 model year, SUVs have edged out minivans as low-premium leaders.  Because more families are choosing SUVs and crossovers for their around-town rides, safer and more experienced drivers are often behind the wheel of these vehicles.  Add safety and technology advancements, and SUVs have become a good bet for insurance companies.

If you’re looking to purchase, the table below shows the 2013 models getting high marks for low insurance premiums.

Of course, the least expensive vehicles for you to insure will depend on your driving record and other personal information.  The best way to find out what you’ll pay is to contact us for a quote before you buy.
