This whole issue is discussed at the following site: CarswithoutBorders (
It gives you a great insight of what is going on right now with the different manufacturers and selling for much more than in the US. The issue is not pricing, it's the roadblocks that MB (and others such as BMW, Volvo, etc.) try to lay down in order to prevent Canadians from shopping in the US. Basically what it comes down to is that the manufacturers dictate to Transport Canada and RIV what should be done, and Transport Canada "blindly" accepts, wether it makes sence or not...

I've given up on MB and their heavy hitting
MB threaten their US dealers and so far are getting away with it.
But a 2009 AWD Subaru Forester might be worth looking at "as a winter beater".

Looks like whoever told CA-B200 "that the passive and active safety features are the same", was mistaken.

When I bought mine I figured the net price differnce, US-Can, was about $4000. But to be fair MB probably decided basic pricing (in Euros) 18mos ago when the C$ was worth less. With the recent rise MB is making an unexpected extra profit in Canada and prob. taking a bath in the US. Canadians still get them cheap compared to the ROW.
