If you’re in the market for a new luxury sedan, SUV, or performance vehicle, you’re probably weighing your options. In this guide, we’ll compare Mercedes-Benz vs. BMW performance, luxury, and warranties so you can see the many ways in which Mercedes-Benz pulls ahead.

Mercedes-Benz vs. BMW: Sedans

When it comes to timeless luxury sedans, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. BMW 3 Series is a classic comparison. Settling into the Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan, you’re invited by its illuminated entry system and enveloped in a level of luxury that the 3 Series simply does not achieve. From designo® Platinum White Pearl/Black Nappa leather interior options, intuitive driver seat controls with memory, and 3-zone automatic climate control, the C-Class shines. While the polished interior of the 3 series is sophisticated— it falls short of Mercedes-Benz luxury

Mercedes-Benz vs. BMW: SUVs
