2019 BMW 3 Series Vs. 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class split screen

The reputation of German engineering for bringing maximum automotive performance is well-understood. With iconic models like the M3, 5 Series and I8, BMW has forged their own dominating part of this legacy, proving time and time again that a luxury vehicle can also be invigorating and well-designed. All-new for 2019, the 3 Series is perhaps BMW’s most popular entry and it’s only become better. Brand new technology, a stunning updated design and an immediate willingness to exemplify the precision performance of German engineering make the 2019 BMW 3 Series a special and inspiring experience.

Up against the 2019 BMW 330i today is the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class – its most intense competitor. Both occupying the small luxury performance car space, these two models are head-to-head for a market that knows that a small car can be just as luxurious as a limousine.

The All-New 3 Series - a Luxury Performance Machine

As you can see in the above chart, the 2019 BMW 330i is an incredible contender and one that easily usurps the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C 300’s pull. While the engine is similar, the BMW 3 Series is the better at harnessing its power, adding almost a 10% better 0-60 time.

The longer wheelbase of the 2019 BMW 3 Series ensures a smoother ride and provides a lower and more sporty profile over the C-Class, which prefers to focus on luxury primarily and performance second.

For the BMW 3 Series, that’s not an “or,” but rather an “and.” This is proven by the futuristic and technology-filled interior of the 2019 BMW 330i that provides an available 10.25-inch center display and all new voice recognition technology which responds to natural human commands and makes your experience as easy and comfortable as possible by learning about your driving habits.
