BMW 3 Series vs Mercedes-Benz C Class
You are looking to upgrade to the comforts of luxury and have come across both the 2020 BMW 3 Series and 2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class. While both cars seem like they will give you an incredibly sophisticated and elegant ride around D’Iberville, Biloxi, and Gulfport, MS, at first glance, you may find that one offers more than the other when taking a closer look.
To find out which model that may be, our team here at Galleria BMW compared the performance and features of the BMW 3 Series vs. Mercedes-Benz C-Class below.
3 Series vs C-Class: Engine Performance
Each vehicle comes powered by a 2.0L turbo inline four-cylinder engine that produces 255 horsepower. In the C-Class, this also generates 273 lb-ft of torque. Even more torque is created in the BMW 3 Series, as its standard engine produces 294 lb-ft of torque. With more raw power, the 2020 BMW 3 Series offers more thrill each time you push down on the gas pedal.
Both luxury sedans come standard with rear-wheel drive for a sportier adventure on the roads. If you want a bit more traction, they also make all-wheel drive available. The xDrive all-wheel drive system in the BMW, as well as its Mercedes-Benz counterpart, provide intelligent grip wherever the roads take you.
Both vehicles feature advanced infotainment systems, which give you access to a variety of entertainment options and other system settings right at your fingertip. You can even control vehicle settings and entertainment features with just your voice.
However, this is much easier to do in the 2020 3 Series, since its BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant lets you just talk naturally to have the car do a long list of helpful things for you. Just say, “Hey BMW,” or use your own custom command.
The BMW 3 Series also comes with much more in terms of technology. It has a standard navigation system that can give you real-time traffic updates, so you get to where you need to be on time. With the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, you will need to upgrade to have a navigation system.
These vehicles are both worthy of their luxury classification. However, the 2020 BMW 3 Series does come with certain features that give everyone a first-class experience inside its cabin.
You and your front passenger can each adjust the temperature to your personal comfort in the 2020 C-Class, thanks to its dual-zone automatic climate control system. The automatic three-zone climate control system in the 3 Series, though, provides this personalized control to front and rear passengers alike.
