Default Mercedes E class and C Class


My name is Dave I am from Australia.

Would be nice if someone could answer a few questions for me.

What is essentially the difference between these two classes?

I know compact size Mercedes cars are available in both.

Are they the only Mercedes models for cars varying in price between $10k to $15K and approx 10 to 15 years old that are available as compact sedans (exluding sports cars etc)?

I know the C in C class stands for compact but what does the E stand for/mean?

I know Mercedes introduced an E class car a few years ago in Australia which was the cheapest Mercedes ever and did not even have ABS but it still sold well, so I have though E class possibly inferior to C class.

What are the pros and cons of the two models?

Which model is safer, if any? And more reliable, if any?

Just wanting to check all options regarding future purchase of compact used Mercedes.

The C class seems to be more popular. What is the reason for that?M

Im no expert, but I think the C-class is more popular [in the USA] because its cheaper.
