Jonny Lieberman of Motor Trend pits the new 2012 BMW 328i against its rival – the 2013 Mercedes-Benz C250. The 3 Series and C Class have been battling for sports sedan supremacy for decades. Now with both cars replacing their traditional six-cylinder engines with turbocharged four-bangers, its time once again for a classic German showdown.

With the new generation F30 328i, BMW moved away from the six-cylinder engine and into the era of four-cylinder turbocharged units.

The 2.0 liter I4 makes 240 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque, compared with 230 horsepower and 200 lb-ft of torque found in the previous E90 328i.

The C250 from Mercedes is now powered by a turbocharged 201-hp, 1.8-liter four-cylinder instead of a 228-hp, 3.0-liter V-6 found in previous iteration. Torque is now up to 229 lb-ft.

Libberman: “I don’t even like modern BMWs, but I am even thinking about buying one now”
