2021 BMW 3-Series Vs 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Exterior Comparison
Firstly we have to say that both cars are very beautiful yet elegant in their own way and both of the international manufacturers have completely changed the looks of both cars, but we think that the BMW has more of an aggressive look and the Mercedes is more into the luxurious looks.
Both cars have a longer wheelbase this year, 110mm longer wheelbase is used for the 3-series limousine model and 25mm to 2,865mm and the overall length is up by 65mm in the new C-Class. 30 litres of extra cargo space has also been added to the new C-Class.

There are 3 petrol models and 1 diesel model available in the new 3-Series line-up and the price of the 3-Series starts from Rs 42.60 lacs (ex-showroom) and goes up to Rs 62.90 lacs (ex-showroom) for the recently launched M340i variant.
There is no information shared by Mercedes regarding the price list and models of the new C-Class but we think that there might be 2 petrol models and 3 diesel models including the C63 AMG and the price range might start from Rs 52 lacs (ex-showroom) and might go up to Rs 62 lacs (ex-showroom).
2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Interior
The interior of the new C-Class is just phenomenal as it is a major upgrade from the currently outgoing model. This interior is based on the new S-Class and it is filled with new technology like
10.25-inch digital cluster and the big infotainment display, the steering now consists of touch-sensitive controls and the rotary knob has also been eliminated like the rest of the buttons, the cabin also has ambient lighting and its just a minimal feature but it looks mind-blowing.
The leather seats are also very supportive and the revised styling of the AC vents gives the car a fighter-jet cockpit kind of a look.

BMW has also undergone some major changes in the interior as they offer a bunch of tech in this year’s model such as an 8.8-inch touchscreen with BMW‘s iDrive infotainment system, interior mood lighting, LED headlights and taillights, multi-zone climate control, 14-way power-adjustable front seats, and so much more.
