wheelbase of wagon and sedan?

Does anybody know if the '94 E320 wagon and the '94 E320 sedan have the same wheel base and length? Or does having the same chassis number (W124) tell me that already? I was always curious?

The W124 (sedan) and the S124 (wagon) had exactly the same wheelbase and total length.

Beside the obvious differences in the rear doors, the wagon has a larger windshield glass and a higher roof profile, providing slightly better interior headroom than the sedan.

Mechanically, besides the standard rear self-levelling suspension, the wagon came equipped with bigger and better brakes and its almost 50/50 weight distribution provided much better handling characteristics than the sedan.

according to my Haynes manual, the wheelbase for both vehicles is the same. The length for the estate/wagon is 4765mm, and the saloon/sedan is 4740mm.

95 E320 owner's manual says...

the overall vehicle length, presumably for the sedean, is 4755mm / 187.2in, wheelbase 2800mm / 110.2 in.

No mention whether it is the same for a wagon, as all the drawings and wordings in the manual seem to be for the sedan and the coupe only.

The coupe's length is 4670mm / 183.9in, wheelbase 2715mm / 106.9in.
