Two rivals that are in a tough battle to find out which comes out ahead are the BMW 3 Series and the Mercedes Benz C-Class. The Mercedes is the vehicle that was lucky enough to be updated but the BMW wasn’t as lucky.
The engine in the Mercedes Benz C-Class is the 2 litre and this comes with 4 cylinders and offers up 241 horses. It should offer you about 24mpg if you are travelling around the city and when you go out onto the highway you should get about 31mpg. The V6 version of the engine offers about 21mpg when driving in the city.
The BMW 3 Series offers up the 2 litre engine, which should give 240 horses and about 23mpg if you are driving in the city and on the highway around 35mpg.
But which of these would you choose, would you go for the Mercedes Benz C-Class or would it be the BMW 3 Series?
