Features

Standard Equipment

Safety: These are all compact luxury sedans and their standard equipment list is quite comprehensive. Every car in this comparison is loaded with safety equipment like at least four or more airbags, ABS with EBD, tyre pressure monitoring system, traction control, ISOFIX anchorages, reversing camera and cruise control. While the C-Class gets adaptive brake lights and high beam assist over the others, it misses out on run-flat tyres which are unique to the 3 Series.

Comfort and convenience: Features like LED headlamps, multi-way electrically adjustable seats with memory setting, two to three-zone climate control, leather upholstery, push start/stop button and rain-sensing wipers come as standard on these sedans.

Technology: A touchscreen infotainment is a segment staple here, complemented by an intimate UI and sweet sounding audio unit.
