BMW 3 Series Has New Contender: Mercedes-Benz C-Class With Major Makeover

By  | 

Sure, they are both really tough rivals, and to battle them out against each other may seem rather impossible. But considering that the Mercedes-Benz C-Class received a huge makeover in 2015, while the BMW 3 Series wasn’t treated the same, is there still a fair fight among the two?

In the heart of the BMW 3 Series, lies a 2-litre turbocharged engine which offers up to 240 horsepower. And it’s good to know that owners can get it about 35 mpg on the highway and 23mpg in the city. The figures shown are very ordinary, so don’t expect for it to actually topple down the likes of the C-Class.

Looking at the Mercedes-Benz, there’s two options available depending on your preference. You can either get the 2-litre 4-cylinders that offers up to 241 horsepower, which could give you 24mpg when travelling in the city and 31mpg on the highway. Or you can opt for the V6 3-litre engine and get about 21mpg in the city and 29 on the highway.

With that being said, which do you think should be given the Winner title amongst the two?

    This story has no discernable info. Gas mileage is subject to driving habits. And that alone has no bearing for comparison.

    Thats a little unfair been as the 3 series and c class ocme with a heck load more engine options

    316i 318i 320i 323i 325i 330i 335i and the m3
    316d 318d 320d 325d 330d 335d
    All except the m3 can have the ‘m sport’ option added aswell

    From my experience the 318d and 320d and 318i and 325i are all great in terms of tourqe and power. While the 318d wins the lot as it was £20 road tax. 50mpg round town and 75mpg on the motor way
    And it was very good at churning out its torque as 0-40 was over in a flash
