Whether they wanted to be rivals or not, BMW and Mercedes-Benz products get cross-shopped often.

They're luxury players and most of their segments overlap or directly compete with each other.

But here's the real issue: They're different companies with different aims.

BMW's crown jewel is performance. Everything else comes second -- with some cases of styling being lower priority.

Mercedes-Benz, on the other hand, is more geared towards a luxury play with a conservative design and less involved driving dynamics.

So when Road and Track put together the BMW 328i and Mercedes-Benz C250 Sport, it was pretty obvious who was going to win, given that R&T is geared towards performance. Hell, why even have the test at all?


That brings me down to an intriguing question: Is BMW's all-new 3-Series THAT good or is R&T overly bias towards performance -- granted, that is essentially the jist of the pub.

Find out which German turbocharged 4-cylinder sports sedan reigns supreme when we test the BMW 328i against the Mercedes-Benz C250 Sport. Get ready for a fantastic battle...
