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.
