distance between left and right side of a vehicle directly affects room in the cabin and also stability on road. The width of the Mercedes is larger by 8 % in relation to the Infiniti M I 4.5 V8 340HP and is not really important. The average for the „upper middle” segment amounts to around 1,826 millimeters and is by 9 mm bigger than the same feature of the Mercedes E-Class W211 Estate S211.
Mercedes E-Class W211 has 9 percent longer wheelbase in relation to the Infiniti M I. A longer wheelbase provides more stable and comfortable ride, especially at higher speeds. It also provides more storage space. However, vehicles with a longer wheelbase are not as maneuverable as those with a shorter wheelbase.
The Mercedes E-Class W211 is 1 % longer in relation to the Infiniti. Long cars have roomy cabin and also have plenty of trunk space. Although the Mercedes E-Class W211 Estate S211 5.0 V8 (500) 306HP automatic seems to be better option for families or drivers who love the idea of soft, smooth long-distance driving that make them feel fresh and relaxed upon arriving, the Infiniti M I may appeal to singles because it will not make problems with parking and will be more maneuverable.
Number of doors
A five-door car generally means a hatchback (however estate cars also count as 5-door cars) and as a result the Mercedes E-Class W211, which whole rear including the window lifts up and the rear seats folds flat enlarging a luggage compartment, has an advantage on the four-door Infiniti M I which is less comfortable to load and unload baggage.
The higher a vehicle is, the the more convenient is a boarding it and greater possibility of loading massive amount of stuff to it. The difference at the level of 13 % in favor of the Mercedes E-Class W211 is little and should not be really noticeable.
For those who value more convenient driving a car and who don’t need complications resulting from the stick shift we recommend vehicles equipped with automatic transmission. For those who have a flair for sport driving a stick shift may be better because it gives a control of rmp range in which a gear is changed.
