The 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the 2018 BMW 3 Series are both well known for their luxurious interiors and dependable performance. However, most drivers in Sacramento want more from their next luxury sedan, and that’s where this comparison comes in. Find out from Mercedes-Benz of Sacramento which model delivers more performance, interior room, and upgraded engine power.

Base Model Performance

Drivers often choose the base trim for their next vehicle. See how these two compare in performance before making your decision:

  • The 2018 C-Class C 300 Sedan uses a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque.
  • The 2018 BMW 3 Series Sedan 320i is equipped with a similar 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder that puts out only 180 hp and 200 lb-ft of torque.

As you can see, the C 300 leaves the 3 Series in the dust.
