2016 BMW 328d vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 328d offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 328d and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class in the front seats.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the BMW 328d is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW 328d will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Dimensions
The BMW 328d is a little narrower than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The BMW 328d is slightly shorter than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The BMW 328d has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW 328d has about the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 328d is significantly less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 328d and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the BMW 328d as you will in the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Warranty
The BMW 328d comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
