When we talk about German vehicles, these two would usually come to mind. And those two are the 2016 Mercedes C-Class and the BMW 3 Series. Both are superb but which of the two is the winner? Bear in mind that last year the Mercedes was treated to a makeover but the BMW wasn’t.
The Mercedes Benz C-Class comes with the 2 litre engine that has 4 cylinders and offers 241 horse power. When travelling the city you may get around 24mpg and on the highway you should get about 31mpg. The vehicle also comes with the 3 litre V6 engine and this should offer you about 29mpg on the highway and 21mpg in the city.
The BMW 3-Series offers the 2 litre engine which is turbocharged and it gives out 240 horses. It may offer you around 35mpg when taken on the highway and about 23mpg around the city.
But which would you choose? Would it be the BMW 3-Series or would you go for the Mercedes Benz C-Class? It’s definitely a tough call on this one, but we’d probably go with the Merc one for the improvements that have been made recently.
