To get the same fuel economy with a six cylinder W202 as your E320 you need a '98-99-00 with the M112 V-6 and 5-speed transmission.

I have a 1995 C280 with the M104 and a 2000 C280 with the M112. The '00 gets 2-3 mpg better economy.

But finding a really nice one at $5K will be work. There are a lot of W202's at low prices, but they are pretty used up.

I like my 210 and when that's used up I am going to get another rust free 210 and do whatever work is required to keep it going. The 210 is a wonderful example of style and power and decent fuel economy to boot. I drove a c class a few times on loan from the dealer and wouldn't like to own one. Too small for me and not the elegant ride of the 210.

Another thought: the 210 is really a good balance between the c class and s class and isn't too hard to work on.
