Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 BMW 3-Series continues its evolution from a sport compact luxury car into a tech-heavy sedan.

Pros
Evolved looks
Good standard safety tech
Impressive technology
Familiar powertrains
More to come

Cons
More than $40,000 to start
Not much more spacious
No electrified powertrains to start
Not a dramatic departure

The 3 Series sedan has been redesigned for 2019, but the wagon carries over largely unchanged

PROS
Balances sharp handling with a ride quality that won't beat you up
Engine choices offer power, smoothness and fuel efficiency
Interior is upscale and spacious with logical, easy-to-use controls

CONS
Storage for small personal items is limited

In addition to a power boost to 385 horsepower, the C43 sees styling and content changes for 2019. A new grille, new wheel designs, and revised front and rear bumpers bring the C43's design in line with other AMG models. Inside, a digital gauge cluster becomes an option and a new sport steering wheel is standard. New wood and metal interior trimmings as well as optional AMG Performance seats with heat and ventilation are now offered.

Pros
Gorgeous cabin,
stunningly quick,
choice of three body styles.

Cons
Rocky ride,
adding options quickly inflates the price.

Confusing technology
Likely high base price

Pricey and on the slighter side of mid-size, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class drops a beautiful cockpit, huge dollops of safety, and effortless AMG brilliance into the sport-sedan mix.

Pros
Coupe, convertible, or sedan
A great-looking family
Powertrains range from great to GREAT
Best C-Class handling ever

Cons
Automatic-only
From $$ to $$$$
Tight rear seats
Shy on cargo space
Plug-in hybrid adds little
