2,913 > 2,854 mm
The Mercury Marauder 4.6 302HP has 59 mm longer wheelbase when compared to Mercedes. Consequently the Mercury Marauder is safer and has a better stability. Moreover, longer wheelbase affects convenient and more comfortable riding.


5,386 > 4,850 mm
The Mercury is 11 % longer in relation to the Mercedes E-Class W211 Estate S211 5.0 V8 (500) 306HP automatic. The length of the vehicle is important in terms of driving comfort and room in the boot. The Mercury Marauder very likely will be offering to it's users more space for legs. Aditionally the Mercury will be better driven but the Mercedes will be a bit easier to park due to shorter length of the body.

Rear track

1,684 > 1,552 mm

Model release date

2003 > 2002
Because of the fact that the Mercedes E-Class W211 Estate S211 debuted only 1 year before the Mercury Marauder 4.6 302HP, the distance in technology applied in both vehicles shouldn’t be really huge, however, the Mercury Marauder 4.6 302HP may feature slightly more advanced solutions used in it.

6 reasons for Mercedes Klasa E W211 Kombi S211 5.0 V8 (500) 306KM automat in comparison to Mercury Marauder 4.6 302HP

Reasons for

Maximal power

306 > 302 hp
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

5 > 4
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.

Price range

luxury > popular


1,496 > 1,495 mm
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.


automatic > manual
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.
