BMW 3-Series vs. Mercedes-Benz C-Class MPG

Unlike other fuel economy surveys, TrueDelta's Real-World Gas Mileage Survey includes questions about how and where a car was driven. So you can get an idea of the BMW 3-Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class's where a car was driven. So you can get an idea of their real-world MPG based on how and where you drive a car.

TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the BMW 3-Series

BMW 3-Series Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2016 A number of BMW 3 Series variants offer better fuel economy than the tested 340i xDrive. You can get a conventional four-cylinder (with EPA ratings of 23 city, 35 highway), a diesel (32/42), or even a plug-in hybrid (28/34). But for a 320-horsepower all-wheel-drive sedan, the 340i xDrive rates quite well: 21/31 with an automatic, 19/29 with a manual. Some six-cylinder competitors score nearly as well, but none quite match the BMW. For example, the tested Jaguar XE with all-wheel-drive and its mandatory automatic rates 20/29. The real-world averages reported by the BMW's trip computer were even more impressive. In light-footed suburban driving it reported 32 mpg, and on a 70-mph highway it reported 37 mpg in one direction and 34 mpg in the other. see full BMW 3-Series review

2008 4dr Sedan 268-horsepower 3.5L V6
7-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Slow to downshift, so-so fuel economy in the city. Should really have 30 more horsepower. see full Mercedes-Benz C-Class review
2004 4dr Wagon 168-horsepower 2.6L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
The city mpg is usually around 15-17 mpg. Now that's for a hilly neighborhood in a big city, but still. True highway mileage usually about 26 - that's reasonable enough for us. see full Mercedes-Benz C-Class review
