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

Comparison Review

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 328 Gran Turismo 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 328 Gran Turismo will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 328 Gran Turismo is much slimmer than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the BMW 328 Gran Turismo takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

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