Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    BMW X1

    • Engaging drive experience
    • Diesel engine is super-refined
    • Ride quality is excellent over not so good roads.

    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 X1

    • Lack of features for its price
    • Steering wheel buttons feel tacky
    • Cost cutting is apparent in places

    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.
