The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is finally headed to dealerships so it’s only right that today’s Face-off-Friday focuses on the C-Class and its best-selling competitor – the BMW 3 Series. The new C-Class has been totally redesigned inside-out for the 2015 model year and also receives a whole new powertrain lineup.

The C-Class will go on sale later this year starting at $38,400 for the 2015 C300 (will go on sale Q1 2015) and will top off at $48,590 for the 2015 C400 4Matic (goes on sale Aug. 25, 2014). The BMW 3-Series on the other hand starts at $32,750, however, that price tag is for the 320i which is powered by a slow 180-hp 4-cylinder. For the sake of this face-off we are going to leave the 320i out and start the fight with the 328i, which is powered by a 240-hp 4-cylinder turbo with prices starting at $37,400.
