The 2019 C-Class comes with a new 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine that makes upwards of 255 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque.

There are a number of faster options available as well. The mid-range C43 and the range-topping, performance-oriented AMG C 63 have their own lines to more power with the former’s engine producing 285 horsepower and the latter’s engine accounting for 469 horsepower.

Neither BMW nor Mercedes can say that it has the better engine over the other. It’s admittedly too close to call, too, so once again, you’re looking at a situation where “better” lies in the eyes of the beholder. - Topspeed.com
