Compact luxury sports cars allow you to experience the thrill and exhilaration of high-performance driving, a luxurious interior full of your favorite comfort/convenience technology and a small footprint that’s easily parked in the city. They’re great all-around vehicles that see fewer compromises than other cars are forced to make. Within this class, there’s perhaps no rivalry quite as storied as the one between Mercedes-Benz and BMW. Both originating from and being manufactured in Germany, these two manufacturers are to performance luxury cars what Ford and Chevrolet are to pickup trucks.
Perfectly exemplifying this contention are the two entrants’ small sedans. For Mercedes-Benz, this is the C-Class, a stately and striking model whose composed exterior and refined interior betray its massive available horsepower. For BMW, it’s the 3 series, starting at the 330i and continuing up through the legendary M3. How do they measure up against one another? Let’s see!
