2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2015 BMW 3-Series
Luxury sport sedans are the object of envy for the majority of drivers, not only because of their incredible styling and cutting-edge technology, but also because of their sports car-esque performance. Additionally, luxury sport sedans like the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class near Chicago IL provide drivers a sense that they have made it. Fortunately for consumers searching for vehicles in this segment, the luxury sport sedan class is among the most competitive in the industry.
That means the all-new Mercedes-Benz C-Class isn’t just handed the title of best-in-class, it must earn it against models like the BMW 3-Series. As we compare the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2015 BMW 3-Series, keep in mind that we’re specifically referring to the similarly priced Mercedes-Benz C300 and the BMW 328i, and that there are an array of trims and available commodities that you can find in both models.
Why Choose the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class?
Like many of the vehicles in this class, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C300 and BMW 328i both get their power from intercooled turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engines. The Mercedes-Benz C300 has the edge when it comes to power and torque with ratings of 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque compared to the 240 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque from the BMW 328i.
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class also gets better fuel-economy ratings in the city, however the highway ratings fall in favor of the BMW 328i.
In addition to its more powerful performance, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C300 provides more standard commodities and cargo space than the 2015 BMW 328i. One important feature to consider is trunk space, as the BMW 3-Series only offers 13 cubic feet of space, which makes it difficult to fit a set of golf clubs. The 17 cubes in the Mercedes-Benz C-Class will provide that extra space so you can fit them in the trunk without folding the rear seats, bending your clubs, or scratching the exterior as you try to finagle them inside.
