The BMW 3 Series and the Mercedes C-Class are two of the toughest rivals and they have been fighting to find out which comes out on top. The Merc got a makeover last year but the BMW hasn’t been updated. So does it have what it needs to compete against the C-Class?
The Mercedes Benz C-Class offers the 2 litre engine which comes with 4 cylinders and this offers up 241 horses. It offers around 24mpg if you drive it around the city and you should get 31mpg if you go out on the highway. It is also available with a V6 3 litre engine which would give you 21mpg around the city and on the highway around 29mpg.
The BMW 3-Series has the 2 litre turbocharged engine and this offers 240 horse power.
You should get about 35mpg out on the highway and about 23mpg when in the city.
So which comes out ahead, is it the BMW 3 Series or the Mercedes C-Class?
