  • News Updates on 5 Series and C-Class

    Recently Asked User Questions

    Q. Which is better car in comparison with Merc C class Progressive 3?
    • Well, no car is best. Choosing a car will depend on one's requirements. The C-Class takes on likes of the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series and Jaguar XE. You may compare these cars according to their variants. If we talk about C-Class, it isn’t a biblically different car than before. It continues to look and feel posh, is built like a tank and has snob value like nothing else in the segment. The refinement of the new engine brings with it an added air of premiumness. Yes, we’d have liked some more features (say a 360° camera, ventilated seats, electric steering-column adjust) at this price point. But, other than that and slightly stingy room at the rear, we can’t really pick bones. It’s the good old C-Class recipe, just fine-tuned and perfected over time. The C 220d’s updates may not seem that significant, but they actually are. It now looks classier on the inside and out, gets better tech that's still as usable as ever and the quality of everything makes it feel richer than anything else in the segment. It just has a charm that nothing else does. Do take a test drive in order to clear your all doubts. Check out authorised dealership details.
    Q. Which car is better in performance C-Class or Volvo S60?
    • The Volvo S60 and Mercedes C class has been a close rival. The Volvo has already got their name on top when it comes to the safety, built quality and engine refinement. The Mercedes, on the other hand, are considered as somewhere near to be the symbol for designing the most luxurious, comfortable and feature loaded vehicles. The Swedian and German sedans when taking head to head with astonishing figures. The Mercedes is available in 3 petrol powered variants and 3 diesel powered varients. The Volvo, on the other hand, is available 2 diesel variants and 1 petrol variant. The performance differs for every engine option.

    • Both cars are better bt s60 is slightly more than c class(not c 63 amg) it is depends upon your availability of services in your city. Cost of s60 also expensive than c class....I hope u will understand

    Q. I am confused between Mercedes E Class 220d or BMW 5 series. Please suggest me which car is best E Class or BMW diesel variant.
    • For self drive, go for BMW 5 Series Luxury Line without any second thought. It’s great for self drive and fully loaded with Remote Control Parking and many other latest features. However you can buy Mercedes E class if you want to sit on back seat.
    • Yes, of course. No other german is match to BMW. Its driver's car. If you have passion for driving, go for it. Merc /Audi cannot match for its shear driving dynamics.
