Unmatched Power

When you’re passing cars on Highway 50 near Rancho Cordova, a sedan with plenty of power will come in handy. One of these luxury vehicles delivers a level of performance that’s miles ahead of the other.

  • The BMW 320i Sedan provides 180 hp and 200 lb-ft of torque. In BMW testing, it goes from 0-60 mph in 7.1 seconds.

  • The Mercedes-Benz C 300 supplies more power and acceleration, with 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. That added performance can propel the C 300 from 0-60 mph in just 6 seconds.

If Mercedes-Benz’s dedication to modern engineering sounds like a good fit for your needs, go with the C 300.

Confident Safety

These days, active safety features can alert you to dangers in the road, and in certain situations, they can even take control of the vehicle to prevent an accident. It’s rare for a base trim to include these exclusive systems, so let’s see what’s standard in the C 300:

  • Collision Prevention Assist Plus


  • Crosswind Assist

  • PRESAFE® Pre-Collision System

Sadly, the 320i doesn’t include these helpful, confidence-assuring safety systems in the base trim. If you want to add them, you’ll need to spend more.

Standard Features

Gold River drivers have come to expect a high standard of luxury from Mercedes-Benz and BMW. Both include useful split-folding rear seats, which extend the available cargo area of the vehicle. In addition, the C 300 includes the following features in the base trim:

  • 14-Way Power Front Seats

  • Dual-Zone Climate Control

  • mbrace® Mobile Remote Start

Unfortunately, none are featured in the 320i. In fact, the BMW’s seat’s are manually controlled, which can make it difficult to achieve a precise, personalized level of comfort.
