Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz C-Class than the BMW 228 Gran Coupe, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the BMW 228 Gran Coupe may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz C-Class you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the BMW 228 Gran Coupe, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW 228 Gran Coupe will have less of an impact on your bank account than 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 228 Gran Coupe and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 228 Gran Coupe is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The BMW 228 Gran Coupe is slightly shorter than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 228 Gran Coupe doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Handling
The BMW 228 Gran Coupe has about the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW 228 Gran Coupe has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 228 Gran Coupe and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The BMW 228 Gran Coupe has less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The BMW 228 Gran Coupe comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
