The horsepower of the Mercedes is by 4 hp grater when compared to the Mercury Marauder 4.6 302HP. While the difference is not big it should not affect the car performance in a noticeable way.
Number of doors
A five-door car usually means a hatchback and as a result the Mercedes E-Class W211 Estate S211 5.0 V8 (500) 306HP automatic, where you can open up the boot lid and fold flat the back seats making more room, has an advantage over the four-door Mercury which in turn has a smaller trunk cut off from the passenger compartment.
The higher a vehicle is, the better is the comfort of boarding it and greater possibility of loading massive amount of thinks to it. The difference between these two cars at the level of 1 mm to the advantage of the Mercedes E-Class W211 is not big and does not matter much.
A stick shift that is placed in the Mercury Marauder is more simpler construction and is cheaper in usage, however, it is less comfortable because there is no need to operate clutch and change gears and it can be lot of inconvenience in a congested city traffic where drivers have lots of stop and go situations. An automatic transmission installed in the Mercedes with gears in the amount of 7 – speeds gearbox is in our opinion better one.
