with stock wheels
205 55 r16 I assume

Would 195 60 r16 be as good or better, or are they too narrow?

I have heard about the narrower is better thinking too, but if I were to buy snow tires I'd stick to the original size and load/speed rating. Then it's just a question of which brand to buy. TireRack has a neat feature where you can search customer reviews by selecting car/tire combinations.
Speaking of stopping distances

I think it was TireRack that had a couple of videos of snow vs. all seasons and IIRC cornering was significantly better too. If it's not up now, wait a couple of months until they are pushing their winter wheel/tire packages.

BTW I don't have a dog in this fight since my MB never experiences winter conditions. The 2 FWD daily beaters w/all seasons see all of that action.
