Moved to Las Vegas from the Midwest and worried about the drive out here. Lead the wife. The E320 in some spots got 31mpg's on regular gas, not much less than the wifes ford focus at 35. Cruised easily at 70. Used a little oil but that was it. After 2153 miles out it handled the trip as well as the 2006 Focus. The trunk was loaded down with heavy dishes and not one broke on I-40 thru some rough spots. Went thru a dust storm, but a rock got the windshield in Oklahoma, replaced it in LV, it was the original windshield. It still has less than 100k, plan on teaching my 8yr old grand child to drive it when she turns 16, will still be one of the best looking cars on the road.
adjustable seats, are as nice as many of the newer models. The spacious rear seat and the sunroof.
I am sure that the new E320 has all the newest bells and whistles, but this 15year old beauty doesn't even have a rattle yet, it is build that tight. They all complain about this mode not having cup holders it use to be about the drive not what you were eating or drinking.
