I am very happy with this one. It replaced my BMW 5 series when it was time to move on. My wife and I now own two Benzes and are very happy with them. We've owned three BMWs before. We have driven both makes for the past twelve years and like them both, so we know what we are talking about here.
This one is solid, and it has the supple handling and ride it should have. The all-wheel-drive "4Matic" system works seamlessly, and the car is sure-footed on any surface. I drive hard, and this solid block of a car never loses its composure. The active suspension keeps body roll to a surprisingly low level. It is more comfortable and relaxing than any BMW we have owned. I use it every day for business, and it helps me reduce my stress level. My BMW was more athletic, but it was a competitive event every time I drove it -- fine when you're in the mood, but really silly when you have clients to see and work to do.
The materials and finish inside are more solid and supple than BMW. BTW, I recommend the "MB Tex" faux leather, because it's more comfortable and breathable than leather. It exudes quality, and your butt feels better on it than it does on leather. It's better than leather. Get it.
The car goes back to Mercedes Benz roots: feels like it was milled from a solid block of steel; not just another toy. It is as it should be -- but I got it at a price that beats anything comparable.
I recommend the car and the brand.
