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 M240 than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW M240 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 M240, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost

The BMW M240 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class have similar Destination Charges.
