2019 BMW 3-Series vs. 2019 Mercedes Benz C-class


The 3-Series has been BMW’s longest-running and most popular model till date. With the redesign of the BMW 3 Series and new additional features, the 2019 BMW 3-Series has improved on its predecessors and is an absolutely stunning car. On the other hand, the 2019 Mercedes Benz C-class is a classic car and one of their most popular cars. Here is a comparison between both cars.

Design & Style

The 2019 BMW 3-Series has BMW’s signature driver-focused dashboard, providing comfortable reach to the controls. With multiple adjustment options for the seats and steering wheel, it provides a comfortable journey for any drive. You won’t have any problems with space as the 3-Series fits 5 passengers and has quite a lot of trunk space. The spacious, supportive seats are really comfortable on this car as well. It impresses even more with its upscale cabin materials.

The 2019 Mercedes Benz C-class is no let-down as well. Just like the 3-Series, there are multiple adjustment options for the seats and steering wheel. The interior is stylish and made with premium materials and components. One downside of the car is its design in certain areas. Some of the controls on the dashboard are not in easy reach for the driver and might not be that simple to use.

Technology & Safety

Carrying the iDrive infotainment interface, many drivers feel that there are a lot of things to look forward to in the 2019 BMW 3-Series in terms of technology features. It is loaded with plenty of reliable interfaces that are ever reliable as usual. Daytime pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, and lane departure warning are among its safety features.

The 2019 Mercedes Benz C-class has a 10.3-inch color screen that’s mounted on the dashboard that comes with MBUX, providing satellite navigation for the driver. The iDrive system on the 3-Series is still relatively quicker and easier to find things that you would use. A DAB radio and two USB ports comes in all C-class cars as well. Besides the mandatory safety features, every C-class car is equipped with safety features such as Adaptive braking technology, Collision Prevention Assistance and Attention Assist.


Gifted with a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine that turbocharges it to produce 248 horsepower, the 3-Series is indeed a promising car in terms of engine performance. On the other hand, the C-class features a 2.0-litre turbo engine that produces up to 255 horsepower. Despite having a more powerful engine, the fuel mileage of the 3-series is a lot better than that of the C-class.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Mercedes Benz C-class is an excellent car and offers many new features and design improvements from its predecessors. However, the car pales in comparison to the 2019 BMW 3-Series in many categories – from the more practical design of the 3-Series and the fantastic performance of iDrive. The 3-Series is just that much better.
