C class is not for big people, so asking about your size would be first question.
You can figure out what I choose as the best for my family.
Would I have tons of cash, I would consider newer 250cdi diesels in E or GL class.
4Matics do cost extra, so buying it for pulling on icy driveway twice a year makes not much sense.
Bare in mind, that modern traction control with good tires pulls better in 2WD, than older 4WD

With 40k you can get a 2011 e350 i think would be your best bet.

From what you described you are looking for you should get the E550. The C class is very cheaply made, I've driven a C250 many times as a rental and it doesn't feel like it has the Mercedes luxury feeling that it should. I also think the interior looks cheap... gives me the feeling like I'm driving a Toyota. The E class is much different then the C and has a very luxurious look and feel to it. You said you were interested in performance though, and the E350 is strongly lacking in performance. Therefore the perfect choice is a E550, definitely worth the slightly less mpg.
