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 M2 than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW M2 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz C-Class you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the BMW M2, 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). The BMW M2 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, 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. The BMW M2 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW M2 is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The BMW M2 is slightly shorter than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW M2 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Handling
The BMW M2 has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW M2 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW M2 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Warranty
The BMW M2 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
