Orange County Area Drivers Enjoy the Finer Things in 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
It always comes down to the numbers when you’re comparing vehicles like this. However, these numbers can be deceiving. It’s easy to see that the BMW 3-Series offers more horsepower. That’s a good thing except when you see that the 2017 C-Class delivers far more torque with equal or better fuel economy when compared to its competitor. This means that you’re getting more power off the line when you choose the Mercedes-Benz model than you would with the more powerful, but less efficient BMW. That’s what an expertly crafted turbocharged engine that boasts state-of-the-art Direct Injection technology gets you. You will have no problem passing other drivers on I-5 or cruising the PCH in the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
But performance is only one part of the quality luxury car equation. Both of these vehicles offer impressive infotainment and amenities, but it’s the C-Class that takes things a little further for your benefit. When you check it out at our Mercedes-Benz dealer serving Orange County, you’ll find things like an optional built-in hard drive that allows you to store important info and media on it for later use. That’s not an available feature on the 2017 BMW 3-Series, which is also the case if you want a premium sound system. The Burmester® Surround Sound system will enhance your favorite driving sounds when teamed with the FrontBass® technology that you can get in the C-Class. You will have plenty of technology to choose from in this sedan with innovative features like a Head-Up Display, COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS®, and ATTENTION ASSIST® available if you want a safer driving experience. When you consider these advantages, then you can see why it’s worth coming in and taking a look at the new C-Class sedan.
