Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 430 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the BMW 430 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 430 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). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW 430 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. In this case, the BMW 430 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 430 is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the BMW 430 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 430 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 430 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Warranty
