Would you buy a 4 cylinder Mercedes instead of a 6 cylinder Mercedes?

I am driving a Mercedes-Benz E-class (6 cylinder). I've been thinking about why there is actually no 4 cylinder Mercedes available in the US. For ecological reasons I would probably buy a 4 cylinder Mercedes but I also wonder, what my neighbours and friends would say about driving a "smaller" car?!

What is your opinion about that? Would you drive a 4 cylinder Mercedes instead of a 6 cylinder for less emisisons and better fuel consumption?

Also, in Europe they have a lot of Mercedes station wagons. I think they are very roomy and don't look too bad. Would you drive a Mercedes station wagon?

Depends on the year of the 4 cyl. But for the most part, no. I have always liked the V6 (old 112 type engine 1998 to 2005) much better than any of the 4 cyl from Benz. I have a 99 E-class 2wd that get 33 mpg on the highway with only 140,000 miles on it. The newer engines are more involved but get way more power out of them.
Nothing wrong with a wagon.
