2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2019 BMW i8

Ranking high among the luxury mid-sized vehicles is the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class. It has plenty of upgrades for this year making it more techy, powerful, and stylish. The previous models were already great so one can only guess how the C-Class has improved even better.

When talking about good-looking cars, the new 2019 BMW i8 is one that fits the bill so well. More than its looks, however, is a pack of great qualities that easily won the hearts of many car enthusiasts. Let us check out how these two awesome-looking cars would fare against each other.

Design & Style

The C-Class is refreshed for 2019 with its redesigned front and rear bumpers. The LED lights on both head and tail are also restyled and now come standard instead of being just an option on the previous year. All the additional exterior design details only made the new C-Class more elegant and fitting to be in the perfect C-Class family portrait.

The new i8 is styled in a way that every head shall turn in its direction as it passes by. This is mainly because of the exotic and rare choice for its shape. The wing doors, for example, opens dramatically that on-lookers can’t help but want to take a closer look.

Technology & Safety

Along with the refreshed design of the C-Class is a set of new and innovative car technology that aims to impress. Both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard along with the new driver-assist safety features. Some of the outstanding active safety techs are Active Brake Assist, attention assist, and Pre-Safe.

The i8 is equipped with BMW’s iDrive system and comes with a sharp-looking 8.8-inch touchscreen display. While it does have Apple CarPlay, Android Auto is missing in the picture as well as a lot of the latest driver aids that are standard on other cars in the same segment.


The handling dynamics of the C-Class is more than impressive, thanks to its 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque.  The acceleration is quick and the car can easily corner even at higher speeds. The engine delivers a healthy grunt that shows how agile it is across different driving modes.

The i8 is a hybrid so aside from the 228 hp coming from its 1.5-liter engine; it also has an electric motor that can peak at 141 hp. While the specs are promising a fun drive, it is noticeable how the i8 does not offer enough feel when steering. The car is supposed to be strong but you can clearly hear it whine as it speeds up.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 BMW i8 looks great, no argument about that. While it does have the looks to impress, it failed in everything else. The tech and safety features are either subpar or missing, and the performance is surprisingly lacking even with its powerful engine. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, on the other hand, has balanced everything from its looks down to how it gives a perfectly confident performance.
