Taking its turn on our walk-around series this time is yet another new challenger in the compact executive sedan arena, but one that looks to have the best shot yet at taking the fight to the F30 BMW 3 Series. It is, of course, the all-new W205 Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

We’ve pitted Munich and Stuttgart against each other before in a full head-to-head gallery, but now our man Jonathan James Tan will guide you through every little minutiae you need to know about the W205, inside and out, in under seven minutes.

You’ll find out how the C-Class compares against the 3 Series in areas such as performance, fuel economy, interior quality, safety and after-sales support, as well as whether equipment levels are up to snuff against its sworn rival. Confused about the three variants available locally – the C 200 Avantgarde shown here, the C 250 Exclusive and the C 250 AMG Line? No worries, we’ve got you covered there too.

We hope you enjoy the video. Piqued your interest? You can read our review of the W205 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, or better yet, wait for the video review of the car coming out very soon.
