ML 350 or E320 T 4-Matic

Hi there
I am in the market for a new MB. But I am not sure if I would be more happy with a ML350 or with a E320 4-Matic Wagon? I don't really need a SUV, so a 4-Matic would be ok. What would you do?
Thanks for your adwise.
Greetings

Depend on what your needs are and what you are looking for.

Without knowing the above, it is difficult to suggest. However, I would like to point out that the ML350 has the new MB engine V6 3.5 litre which is a killer!!! Either ML or E-class, get one with the new 3.5 V6 engine.....one of the best engines at the moment.

Thanks to YMT

Indeed a good advice with the 350. I could live with both of them. I like much the luxury and Airmatic on the E Wagon... but then I think the ML ist more versatile....


Any other toughts?

Hold out a little bit longer if you can! The 06 E should be coming with the new 350 engine. The 05 ML 350, while nice, will be dated once the new body ML hits showrooms.

This changes the field entirely. Some improvements to the E and a BRAND NEW ML.[:p]

Personally, I'd have to test drive both. I'd first go against the ML since it's brand new and we all know the of the ML problems that were in the previous models. However, quality controls have been improved, and the new ML is gorgeous.

The E is also beautiful. I am not a big wagon fan, but when I see one with 18" wheels and the HIDs [:p] again.

This is a GREAT problem to have. I'd probably go with the new ML. It just looks too badass.

Bests.

ML350 engine is not the same as that of SLK350 or CLS350.

Thanks for the few thoughts and advices. Now I've bought a new MB. But it's not a E nor a ML. I found a very nice S500 4-Matic. That was the comfort I was searching for.

Bye
