Not Sure, Which car to buy?

Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine

    • 43mm more kneeroom than standard 3 Series, making it the most in the class
    • Feels smooth and comfortable over bad roads too
    • Quiet cabin enhances luxury feel
    • Smooth and responsive diesel engine makes both city and highway use enjoyable

    Mercedes-Benz C-Class

    • Snob value. Nothing else says you’ve arrived in life like a Mercedes-Benz.
    • Build quality. Solid feeling doors, soft-touch material everywhere, wood trims make the car feel rich.
    • Drivability. New 2.0-litre engine is equally comfortable if you’re stuck in traffic or belting it on the highway.
    • Efficiency. With 14.37kmpl inside the city and 21.40kmpl on the highway, it’s frugal to run daily.

    BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine

    • Boot space is the same as the standard 3 Series
    • Should have offered sunblinds for the rear windows
    • Limited boot space unchanged from 3 Series

    Mercedes-Benz C-Class

    • Missing features vis-a-vis global spec. LCD instrument cluster is a big miss.
    • Backseat space, especially headroom, is underwhelming. It’s not a spacious sedan.
    • Stiff ride quality might not please all. Road imperfections are felt inside the cabin.
