Which Was It: BMW or Mercedes?
by Maria Trimarchi

VROOM VROOM! In this quiz, we're brewing a rivalry over in Germany! With two highly coveted brands, if we give you a hint, can you guess if it was BMW or Mercedes?

If you're a car expert, you might know that the history of the automobile starts in Germany. Inventor Karl Benz is credited with making the first true automobile. While many people were tinkering with items to move to the forefront of this creation, Benz crafted this first car with three wheels and an internal combustion engine. He formed his company, Benz & Cie. in 1883 and in 1926 would combine it with Daimler-Motoren-Gesselschaft to create Mercedes-Benz.

Bayerische-Motoren Werke, or BMW as you probably know it as, was founded in 1916 by Karl Rapp. Although this company started manufacturing plane engines, BMW wouldn't begin their automotive production until 1928.

Both Mercedes-Benz and BMW are multi-billion dollar companies. Can you tell these German manufacturers apart?

One brand is known for their C-Class while the other is recognized for the 3 Series. You'd find one headquarters in Munich while the other is in Stuttgart. From "the ultimate driving machine" to "the best or nothing," can you tell these two German car brands apart? There's only one way to find out!
