I was shopping around for S class when W124 was on the market, but starting with W210 the E class give me good legroom.
I had leg cramps in Hummer for the record.
Fuel consumption is a tricky subject. Weight plays small role in mpg at highway speeds. The frontal area or air drag does.
But when it comes to city driving, when you have to accelerate and slows down the weight, that is when you will see the difference.
Than S has more gadgets that can break and needs maintenance.
I bet you know the life truth? You pull for oil change in Toyota it is $59. You pull in E class it is $110.
You pull in S class it is $160.
