The W210S wagon has a lot of fans too. Feel free to ask the owners on our forum, you'll find us in the sedans section.

W211 or W210 E320cdi wagon preferably 4-Matic.
Good acceleration, 7 belts, humongous cargo space, comfort and 40 mpg

I used to own a 1985 300TD (station wagon diesel)
It was a GREAT car. I'd still be driving it, if it was not totaled in an accident.
Take the car to a good Mercedes mechanic before you buy it. You need to know what has to be done to the car because it cannot be in "perfect" condition. If it needs some repairs, it's OK, but you need to know there are no major problems.
If the seller doesn't want you to take the car to YOUR mechanic, you do not want this car.

Another vote for the 2011 E350 4Matic. (W212)

With Mercedes, newer is always better.

It's simply rationalization and nothing more that votes in favor of the old, fuel guzzling clunkers.

W210 and W211 are still fairly modern, too.

It's a w126 combi - or 560 TEL. Basically the same as an SEL sedan.
Very few were made.

One example was fetching 49,000 euros on a German auction site.
