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 430 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. The BMW 430 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 430 is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. 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 its lower torque, the BMW 430 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Handling
The BMW 430 has about the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the BMW 430 and 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. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 430 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Warranty
The BMW 430 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
