Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    BMW 3 Series

    • Styling. Low, sporty and all things fun! M Sport variant looks delicious.
    • Punchy engines. Pick the petrol or the diesel, both promise to please with performance.
    • Quality. Interior now feels like a scaled-down 5 Series in earnest.

    Mercedes-Benz GLC

    • Smart and convenient infotainment system
    • Refined and easy to drive diesel engine
    • Comfortable ride quality ideal for the Indian roads

    BMW 3 Series

    • Silly feature omissions: 360° camera, keyless entry, Android Auto - all missing.
    • Low seating and tight kneeroom means it’s less than ideal for the chauffeur-driven.
    • Most of the 480-litre boot is taken up by the spare wheel.

    Mercedes-Benz GLC

    • Missing features like 360 degree camera and digital instrument cluster
    • Suspension takes a while to settle after a bump
    • Drive is not exciting
