Pre-Owned BMW 5 Series vs Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Pre-Owned BMW 5 Series vs Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Finding the right used vehicle for you can be a tough choice. With used vehicles, the choices are even more expansive than new automotive shopping. There are countless years, models, makes, and trim specifications from which to choose. And at Queens Auto Mall, Inc., we have an expansive inventory, bringing you the variety of choice, but also giving those who are indecisive, perhaps a bit too much to chew. So, how do know what great model should be on your “To Buy” list? We suggest placing them side by side. 

Mercedes-Benz and BMW have long been staples in the luxury car market. They consistently bring stellar performance and refined craftsmanship to the automotive market. The 5 Series and the C-Class are similar vehicles at first glance, but differ depending on their year and trim levels. We’ll go over a basic look at each car so you can be better prepared to make a decision. With such great models at your disposal, along with the variety of our inventory, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for in your next vehicle.


The main determining factor between the BMW 5 Series and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class is the feel of the drive. Each model is built for superior performance, but the real question is what feels right for you -- the quicker response of the smaller Mercedes-Benz, or the smooth and sophisticated power of the BMW 5 Series?


Exterior Design

The designs of the two models are in line with the brand’s traditional looks. The BMW signature style features more curved lines and a flowing exterior look to its body, while the Mercedes-Benz is traditionally cut sharper in its exterior lines. Both models are aerodynamically engineered and meant to give an impression of precision.


Fuel Economy

Thankfully, due to their efficient engineering, both of these models gain an impressive fuel efficiency. The fuel rating will vary depending on the year, trim level, and driving habits of the individual in question, as well as the engine specifications of the vehicle you choose. The BMW, as it is slightly larger than the Mercedes-Benz will have a little variation in fuel efficiency, but not by much. Either is a smart choice for your next vehicle.

Both vehicles are sedans. The BMW fits the midsize luxury sedan description, and the Mercedes-Benz is a compact luxury sedan. They each will hold five passengers, but the BMW will ultimately give you more wiggle room, as it is a roomier model in its design. Both are comfortable in their interiors, and depending on which year and trim level you choose, equipped with advanced technologies, and driver-centered controls. Featuring a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine in their starting trim levels, they both deliver great driving experience.

Interior differences in the BMW 5 Series and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class will highly depend on the year, trim level, and specific packages with which the car you are considering was built.

In this category, it will be a close call. Both models can be both sporty and luxurious, varying depending on which model, color, trim, and interior specifications you choose.
