GLK Vs E350

Hi

I currently have a C250 and we have a baby on our way. As there is no way we can have a convertible car seat fit in it, we are thinking of upgrading to either GLK or E350. I am on tight budget and can not afford ML at this point.

My husband is 5'8" and I am 5'5". My parents visit us often. So, I need the car to accommodate a rear facing convertible seat and four adults.

Can you please suggest which one is better (GLK vs E)?

Thanks in advance!

apples vs oranges.
We did drive ML for years (Great for towing boats and trailers ) when our boys have been going with us, but once they grew up and stop going, we enjoy E class.
Used E is easier to purchase than GLK I guess and operating cost should be lower.
But it is what you like that count the most.

Thanks for your input. I keep hearing about how great an E is. But my concern is which one fits a convertible car seat better in its rear facing position (GLK vs E). Thanks anyway for the time you took to respond..

With a little one still in a seat the GLK will be easier to get the seat in and out of.

Also the seat height is taller than the the E350 so that will make it easier for the parent's to get in and out of.

The E350 will drive much much more like a driver's car than the GLK. With each one listed there are going to be compromises. They are both great vehicles.

My wife works as nanny for family with 3 kids and when it comes to convenience of getting the kids strapped, nothing beats minivan.
Even I confirm that GLK being taller would make putting and strapping kid easier, but is that small convenience worth lowering the driving pleasure?
decisions, decisions, decisions.
