Here's another comparison. Shortly after the world debut in their Super Bowl commercial, Mercedes unveiled the all new C-Class Coupe. It's based on the existing and well known C-Class variants and features -- unlike any other coupe Mercedes-Benz makes -- a B-pillar and fixed side/rear windows. Size, layout and even some design cues instantly identify it as a strong competitor for the E92 3-series Coupe LCI launched less than a year ago. See for yourself how both fare side to side with each other.

Public debut of the C will be at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The C63 AMG is due later this year.

I think the Mercedes could conquer "IF", it made the grill shorter to fall inline with the headlights so it'd be more fluid. Shrink the "LOOK @ ME" peace sign as well, and get rid of the big booty hoes reverse lights.

Oh almost forgot, NO ONE has the led fogs or headlights down pat like Audi, get rid of those plastic lego looking strips!

I can't get over the Honda Accord C-pillar and awkward space between the shoulder line and rear wheel well.

Side profile reminds me of an accord coupe

The 4 almost 5 year old 3-series still looks more modern to me.

Avantgarde version of any Merc must (?) be compared with M Pack models
Elegance versions don t look so agressive so these can be compared with normal BMW versions...
A comparative road test will show exactly which car is more sportier and has the most pluses overall
Another aspect is the range of engines (220 CDI vs 320d and 350 vs 335i will be the most interesting)

Don't like the Merc's mirrors, also the grill is disproportionate to the rest of the car...

I wonder how it drives. MB's tend to be a bit on the ponderous side.

I can't believe how much they messed up the C.
