    You're not comparing apples to apples here. The equivalent model from Mercedes Benz that compares to the 1-series is the A-class.

    The C-class competes with the 3-series.

    Nevertheless, if you are ONLY considering these 2 cars, it's quite simple. The 2015-2018 1-series is a small rear-wheel-drive vehicle (which is getting to be very rare these days) that really is quite fun to drive due to its handling characteristics and small size. It will feel a lot more nimble compared to the larger and softer riding C-class. So if you like the feel of "driving", throwing it into corners...etc get the 1-series.

    The C-class is of course a larger car, and offers more practicality in terms of passenger and storage space. It is also a more comfortable softer riding car. If these are the things that are more important to you, get the C-class.

    Neither!  You would be better off buying a new Honda Civic for the same amount of money.  It will last longer, drive just as well and cost a lot less to maintain.

    Both of them are no good with too many corners cut to be considered luxury vehicles, especially the C series.

    You'll wish you never heard the name BMW if you buy one.

    infiniti's are more reliable than either one, but BMW's break like crazy in my expierience and mercedes are not exactly reliable either. but i'd probably go Mercedes C over BMW 1.
