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

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the BMW 328 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the BMW 328 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). The Mercedes-Benz C-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 328, 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. In this case, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the BMW 328.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is a little wider than the BMW 328, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which is slightly longer than the BMW 328.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the BMW 328.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class has a much more powerful engine than the BMW 328. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

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

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