I have a 190E/2.3, so I can't speak specifically about the 2.6 engine, but I can tell you that when I bought my car, I was looking at a 300E and the 190E. Same milage, same price, the 300 was 4 years older. I actually preferred the 190 to the 300 because it felt a little more nimble. (it ought to, it is a considerably smaller car) I'm usually driving solo, so space isn't an issue. But on occasion, I can comfortably fit the whole family (wife + 2 kids) for an around-town jaunt. When we travel any distance, we take the Volvo 940 Turbo Wagon.
