BMW 3 Series vs Mercedes C Class


If you’re in the market for a new luxury sedan, then you’ve come to the right place! Odds are, you’ve probably come across the 2021 BMW 3 Series and the 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, two highly sought-after luxury models that will redefine the way you look at driving.

For our drivers in Atlantic City, Egg Harbor, and Vineland, NJ, our team at BMW of Atlantic City has put together this vehicle comparison of the BMW 3 Series vs. Mercedes C-Class. You’ll learn the ins and outs of these awesome cruisers, so you can decide for yourself which one fits your lifestyle better.

BMW 3 Series


The 2021 BMW 3 Series and the 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class offer cabins that exemplify luxury. With high-quality, soft-touch materials in both models, you’ll be volunteering to be the designated driver on your next group night out to show off either ride.

Speaking of group outings, you and your front-seat passenger will appreciate the extra legroom. The 3 Series offers an impressive 42 inches of front legroom, while the C-Class follows with 41.7 inches.

If you plan on taking your next luxury vehicle on road trips, these two options offer similar space in the trunk. The BMW 3 Series has 13 cubic feet of storage space, while the C-Class, again, lags behind with 12.6 cubic feet.

BMW 3 Series


When looking for a luxury automobile, you might be thinking about the high-tech features to keep your drives safer and more entertaining. The 2021 3 Series and the 2021 C-Class are neck and neck in this category.

Both models come standard with an infotainment system that’s controlled either by a touchpad—though this is only an optional feature in the C Class, while it’s standard with the 3 Series. Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ also come standard, so you can listen to your favorite tunes on even your longest rides.

There’s SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, too, that provides over 150 music, news, and comedy stations to enjoy throughout your commutes. You can get a 1-year All Access trial to this program in the 3 Series. Unfortunately, the C-Class offers it for just six months.

However, both vehicles come standard with a rear-view camera to give you some extra assistance while backing up, along with available features like Automatic High Beams.



By now, you know the BMW 3 Series and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class have the look and feel of luxury, along with advanced technology features to match. How much power do they put out, though?

With both automobiles, you’ll have great options for choosing engine power. The 3 Series even features a turbocharged 3.0L 6-cylinder engine that takes you from 0 to 60 MPH in just 4.4 seconds, while it takes 5.7 seconds to get to 60 MPH in the C-Class.

When it comes to fuel economy, you might think you have to give up efficiency for power. Not with these cruisers. The BMW 3 Series offers an EPA-estimated 26 city and 36 highway MPG, while the C-Class follows with an EPA-estimated 23 city and 35 highway MPG.1
