2019 BMW 3 Series vs 2019 Mercedes-Benz C Class in Baton Rouge, LA

2019 BMW 3 Series vs 2019 Mercedes-Benz C Class in Baton Rouge, LAPictured left is the 2019 BMW 3 Series with optional features. Pictured right is the 2019 Mercedes-Benx C Class with optional features. 

2019 Mercedes-Benz C Class

Your next luxury sedan should cover all the bases when it comes to performance, technology, and comfort, so why not go with an option that provides all this and more? Here at Brian Harris BMW, we firmly believe that the 2019 BMW 3 Series Sedan is the model for you, so visit us today to see it for yourself. In the meantime, check out this comparison of the 3 Series and the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C Class.

Performance

To begin, let’s see what the 2019 3 Series and 2019 C Class have to offer beneath the hood. Both of these models are equipped with 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder systems, however, this is where the similarities between these two rides start to end. In one corner, we have the BMW, which puts you in command of 255-hp and 295 lb.-ft. of torque for a commute to the office on I-110 that won’t grow stale. On the other hand, the Mercedes also delivers 255-hp, but falls behind with just 273 lb.-ft. of torque. This small difference comes back to bite the C Class, as its 0-to-60 MPH acceleration of 5.7 seconds is a tick behind the BMW’s 5.6 seconds1. On paper, this might seem minor, but you’ll certainly feel the difference when you step on the gas!

Comfort & Convenience

Another crucial aspect of any vehicle is its cabin. Inside the 2019 BMW 3 Series Sedan, you’ll have access to a host of generous comforts and intuitive technology to keep you cozy and entertained for the duration of your journey. First, accessing your ride’s various media applications is a breeze, thanks to the large 8.8-inch iDrive system located within convenient reach in the center stack. Tapping into your Mercedes-Benz C Class’ tech won’t be quite as simple, as its smaller 7-inch screen isn’t as easy to navigate. Even when it comes to comfort, the BMW still reigns supreme. Its standard three-zone climate control allows for greater temperature customization than the dual-zone system in its rival. Plus, while the C Class requires you to upgrade to ambient lighting, the 3 Series includes this as standard.

Is the 2019 3 Series Safe?

We’ll wrap up this comparison by examining how these luxury vehicles keep you safe from harm. With the BMW 3 Series, you’ll have a host of intelligent systems watching the road around you for potential hazards with the advanced Active Guard2 suite. Coming standard, this package includes Frontal Collision Warning and Automatic City Collision Mitigation, so that if a sudden obstacle appears in your path, you’ll be alerted of the danger. If you’re unable to hit the brakes, the latter feature can intervene on your behalf with autonomous stopping power! Plus, if you ever lose your focus behind the wheel and begin to drift, standard Lane Departure Warning will bring the error to your attention. Although the Mercedes-Benz C Class has similar features, you can only access them by spending additional funds on upgrades.

We hope that this review has proven that the 3 Series is the better choice between the 2019 BMW 3 Series vs 2019 Mercedes-Benz C Class in Baton Rouge, LA. Take one for a test drive at Brian Harris BMW to experience its outstanding features and capabilities!

I worked with Cassie and the service I received couldn’t have been better. It was as close to a contactless delivery as one could get. I was in and out in 2 hours. The finance manager, Clifton, was exceptional. Explained absolutely everything. This is the 4th BMW I’ve owned, but my first experience with Brian Harris, and I would recommend them to anyone in the market for a BMW.

My service advisor Fred was really helpful. I’m really happy I got the wheel and tire protection package when I bought my bmw. Between having that and a good service advisor, I haven’t had any headaches using bmw service. The only negative thing I could even think of would be that the free cold drinks could be a little colder...

I had the best experience with this dealership. I highly recommend them to everyone. My sales rep was Wade Lilly. He is a true professional through and through. I’m a Mercedes woman at heart, but I purchased my first BMW ever from them, and I can say that I feel so confident about my purchase. I got an amazing deal on a great vehicle. Thank you Wade and the team at Brian Harris BMW!

IMy scheduled appointment was made around my schedule. I was greeted with respect as I pulled up at the scheduled time. I was checked in immediately. I latter received a video detailing the work on my vehicle and how everything looked on my car by the mechanic. When the worked was completed, I received a call and a text to pick up my car with the charge for service. I was humbled by the attention given to me and the service of my car. I am pleased with the service of staff at BMW in the service department.
