At Hansel BMW, we want Napa area shoppers to get the most out of their next purchase, no matter the brand, model, or store. That’s why we’ve taken it upon ourselves to compare the popular 2020 BMW 3 Series sedan against one of its most compelling competitors – the 2020 Mercedes-Benz C Class.

12.6 cu. ft.

We’ll start by pointing out both the 3 Series and C Class are of exceptional pedigree – through thick and thin, these models consistently rank as the finest in the luxury sedan class by casual drivers and enthusiasts alike.

Following their shared lineage of cutting edge German engineering with a refined touch, their engines are identically sized at 2.0L and both churn out an even 255 Horsepower.

However, the 2020 BMW 3 Series packs 22 lb-ft. of more torque thanks to a sophisticated twin-turbo system. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz C Class is no slouch, but it misses the mark when driven alongside the 3 Series.

As for fuel economy, the 2020 BMW 3 Series comes out on top with an impressive 30 Combined MPG when compared to a formidable, but thirstier, 28 Combined MPG from the 2020 Mercedes-Benz C Class. The disparity may seem slight, but you settle for more stops at the gas pump with the C Class.

The 3 Series also makes for a much more practical driver with passengers. The standard 3-zone climate control means you can accommodate all who come along for the ride. The C Class, on the other hand, only offers this luxury at a premium. Additionally, you have plenty of room for cargo in the 2020 BMW 3 Series with 4.4 cu. ft. of more trunk space than the C Class.
