Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW M235 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). Based on MSRP, the BMW M235 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 M235 will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Dimensions
Since the BMW M235 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. If you go with the BMW M235, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Drivetrain
The BMW M235 has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.
