2018 Mercedes-Benz C 300 vs 2018 BMW 328d

Proudly Serving Atlanta, GA

If the new-generation C-Class shares its destiny with the future E-Class, it is instead from the side of the sumptuous S-Class that it draws its inspiration. The profile makes me think a bit of a Bentley Continental GT. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz C 300 also has excellent acceleration, reliable braking, and you can control the trajectory even on a winding road. The comfort/equipment/quality/amenity ratio being very positive, I would tend to say yes to this car. In the current state, this German also delivers a vehicle able to travel long distances.

Passengers will appreciate the full seats, whose design reaches the perfection of those of a Volvo S60. However, let us also understand that the gear settings are excellent. The suspension in Comfort mode will firm up to maintain the body on a road that is excessively wavy, and the box in Sports style will move the higher gear earlier.

Cabin

The charm of the cabin of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C 300 is enough to convince those who hesitate, and the comfort of the rear seats is superior, which is a strong enough argument for buying this automobile. On the other hand, the 2018 BMW 328d has fallen into the pot of foamed plastics. Regarding aesthetics, the 2018 BMW 328d does not question the Bavarian traditions.

Engine

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz C 300 has four cylinders indeed, but it is very valiant and able to climb high for a change of gear on the fly. Therefore, this automobile gratifies you with a beautiful growl of the exhaust and makes you want to drive with all your windows open. On the other hand, when it comes to the 2018 BMW 328d, with a lack of nobility, it is harmful not to have the flexibility and the sound of a V6, even if the characteristics on the paper do not demerit. Also, you should understand that if your daily drive often requires long strides on the highway, this 2018 BMW 328d is not made for you.

Noise

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz C 300 is silent when you are driving with the windows rolled up. With the 2018 BMW 328d, there is a caveat, however: aerodynamic noise is heard on the upper part of the windshield, even at a quiet pace.
