If you go to the W211 version of the E class get a 2005 if it is in the budget.
The car is much more refined than the C class as far as luxury and has better quality ride.
A lot of the bugs were fixed by 05.

If you go with the W210 I would go with a 2002.

Don't rule out a diesel in either chassis design. It will pay you back in relatively short order.

Not even S class will match the American classic back seats from the 1960's and 70's.
I did own 1969 Ford LTD. It was 2-door, but the door swing like 5 feet and being 5-9 I could lay down comfortably on back seat, only with my knees slightly bend.
Having 3 sons I was always buying bigger cars for family use, but now sons don't go with us and I mistaken the new E class for C class on the road. Not only they come smaller, but I spotted 2-door E class
Bottom line - C class are much cheaper to buy and cheaper to use, so for single person use -assuming the person is shorter one it could be pretty tempting.
Diesel is logic choice, but who really cares about logic on car buying?
