2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs 2016 BMW 3 Series
Whether you are a Mercedes-Benz fan or a BMW fan, it is difficult to argue that either vehicle is less than amazing. Both offer some of the most coveted features of the luxury sedan world and both provide incredible reliability. In fact, the similarities stretch beyond the realm of imagination. So what sets them apart from each other? Are they 200 horses a piece? Which car comes out ahead in the case of the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. the 2016 BMW 3 series?
The BMW 3 Series takes an early lead with an MSRP $5,000 under the BMW. It also gets a point for offering an 8-speed automatic transmission with overdrive and auto-manual, but loses the point for not making it a standard feature. Because it is an option, the MSRP reflects the 6-speed manual with overdrive compared to the 7-speed automatic in the C-Class. Gaining momentum, the C-Class pulls ahead with 241 horsepower with a 2.0-liter I-4. The BMW uses the same size engine to create only 180 horsepower, which is a measly 75% of the power put out by the C-Class.
