Mercedes car for tall guys?

I've had great luck with MB and have an 03 CLK and a 2010 ML in the family. I'm tall and fit in the CLK just ok, but the ML is great and very spaciuos.

Was looking at the past two Generations of E class and the CLS and I have zero headroom.

What MB's are you tall guys driving? Was hoping for a 4-door sporty sedan, but doesn't seem like MB can serve my height.

I am only 5-9 but my legs are longer than average and I did get cramps driving W124 long distance.
Than W210 has all the legroom I need and I still stop the seat 1" from the back stop.
ML has more room thanks to sitting more upright. That gives you feel of lot of space, but is tiring on long distance driving.
Long distance for me counts when I cross time zones twice in one day.

This might be too old of a car for you but the original owner of my w126 was an OL for the Detroit Lions and he fit in the car comfortably.
