I've found the 16v to be more of a "sports sedan" than the 500E and as a result, has a harsher ride while also having more body roll (which can be solved with diferent anti-sway bars).

The 500E, again, was intended as a long distance commuter and has a firm, but more supple ride.

Both understeer when pushed to the limit (which is indicative of MBs conservative approach). But this too can be adjusted through suspension tuning.
