2017 BMW 535 Gran Turismo vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 535 Gran Turismo than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the BMW 535 Gran Turismo may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 535 Gran Turismo as you will with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). The BMW 535 Gran Turismo will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 535 Gran Turismo and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 535 Gran Turismo is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the BMW 535 Gran Turismo, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 535 Gran Turismo transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Handling
The BMW 535 Gran Turismo has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 535 Gran Turismo is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Utility
The BMW 535 Gran Turismo offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 535 Gran Turismo will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Warranty
The BMW 535 Gran Turismo comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
