2016 Mercedes-Benz C300 vs. 2016 BMW 328i
Brampton drivers in the market for a compact luxury sedan likely have a few familiar names in mind, such as Mercedes-Benz C-Class and BMW 3-Series. However, once you do your homework, you’ll see that in terms of safety, power, and efficiency the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C300 blows away competition like the 2016 BMW 328i. Whether you want to go further between gas tank fill-ups, or you put a premium on performance, you can’t go wrong when you choose the 2016 C300 – available now at Mercedes-Benz Brampton.
Under the hood of the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C300, you’ll find a 2.0L turbo in-line 4 that produces 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque, and uses Direct Injection and Variable Valve Timing technology. If powerful and dynamic performance is a must for you, then the C300 is the clear choice compared to the 2016 BMW 328i sedan’s 240 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque. The C300 sedan’s engine comes paired with a smooth, responsive 7-speed automatic transmission, ensuring the ideal gear response in nearly every driving situation. Steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters let you take control of your drive and further enhance the behind-the-wheel experience of the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C300.
All of that power doesn’t come at the expense of efficiency; in fact, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C300 soars past the 2016 BMW 328i when it comes to fuel usage. The C300 uses only 11.3 L/100km for city driving, while the BMW 328i uses 12.8 L/100km. What’s more, when you take your C300 out for a drive, you’ll enjoy more time on the road with fewer stops for fuel, thanks to its larger tank. Features like ECO Start®/Stop further improve efficiency by shutting down the engine during idle situations, so you’re not wasting fuel while waiting at a long red light. The engine jumps back to life the moment you lift your foot off of the brake – ready for action.
True luxury lives in the details, and the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C300 lives up to the challenge. Style features like an optional rear spoiler, or convenience features like an available power liftgate for the trunk, bring the 2016 C300 to the next level of luxury. You won’t find either on the 2016 BMW 328i. Unlike the 328i, the C300 adds in dual-zone climate control and a 14-way power driver seat with memory, making the interior your oasis and home away from home. All in all, the C300 boasts design details that are a treat for the senses and enrich your comfort, wherever your journey may take you.
