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 M4 than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The BMW M4 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz C-Class you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the BMW M4, 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 M4 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 M4 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW M4 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
