Should have gotten a 3 Series InsteadBy Mark Chen, Aug 16, 2014Formerly I had a 2008 BMW 335i and since it was about that time to get myself a shiny new car, I went straight back to the BMW dealership to look at the new 3 Series. Yuck. I was not a fan of the new styling at all so I decided to take a visit to BMW's main competitor, Mercedes Benz. Hmm... I thought, the C-Class doesn't look too shabby and after owning a BMW, I wondered what it'd be like to taste what Mercedes has to offer. So why not I thought, plenty of people talk about how Mercedes is better than BMW, so I snagged myself a C250. The first couple of weeks were fine. But then I started realizing that not only does the car lack power, it lacks the "sporty" feel you get from driving a BMW... any BMW. The handling is loose and the car lacks a lot of pep. Yes I know I'm comparing a 335 to a C250, so I know the power difference is there, but the way the power is delivered in the C250 leaves a lot to be desired. While the interior is up to par with what you'd expect from a BMW, it's obvious Mercedes focuses more on comfort. So that's a plus there. The rear seats are OK for passengers, not the best. Trunk space is comparable. I just miss the driving experience the BMW has to offer. Maybe over time and I get older and more boring the Mercedes is a better buy, but for now, I may have to reconsider. It's not a BAD car so to say, but if you're looking for a more spirited driving experience, test drive the BMW 3 Series first. ...moreLuxurious, competitive price, good looks, quiet, smooth
