Junkyard Treasure: 1999 Mercedes-Benz E320 4MATIC Wagon



While the choice of US-market terminal wagons was decreasing swiftly as the 21 st century came close to as well as SUVs took control of, automobile buyers seeking brand-new ’99 wagons still had a couple of fascinating selections when seeking a good-sized freight hauler that had not been a vehicle or truck-influenced. Honda had actually axed the Accord wagon over below after 1997, Toyota U.S.A. surrendered on the Camry wagon the year prior to, while Nissan as well as Mitsubishi had actually dumped the Maxima as well as Sequin wagons on our coasts after 1989 as well as 1995, specifically. Subaru was still in the beginning of its remarkable (as well as recurring) sales keep up the Tradition Wilderness wagon then, while Ford marketed the Taurus/Sable wagon completely with the 2005 design year. BMW still provided the 5-Series wagon after that (with one more years to go), however our 1999 wagon buyer needed to seek to Mercedes-Benz as well as Audi for a European estate with all-wheel-drive. Right here’s an instance of Stuttgart’s A6 Avant Quattro competitor, currently living in a North The golden state self-service lawn.

Daimler-Benz (as well as, beginning in 1998, DaimlerChysler), marketed the W210 E-Class in The United States And Canada from the 1996 with 2003 design years, changing the 1980 s-vintage W124

This all-wheel-drive E320 had an MSRP of $49,990, or regarding $90,155 in 2022 bucks. That’s what it set you back for the type of wagon you required for correct Y2K partying, though the somewhat smaller sized Audi A6 Avant Quattro established you back a simple $36,600 that year ($66,005 currently).

That defeated the A6’s 200- equine 2.8-liter V6 as well as surprised the Wilderness’s 142- equine boxer-four (though you can pay additional for a 165 hp variation). A five-speed guidebook transmission was offered in other places worldwide, however American W210 purchasers needed to obtain the automated. For diesel fans, the E300 car was offered (no wagon variation below, sorry).

The inside is reconstructed in natural leather, as well as the VIN informs me that this shade mix was referred to as “Mushroom/Quartz/Pebble” in1999 It shows up to have actually remained in good condition, before the crimes of heavy-handed junkyard buyers.

The body as well as its Neve White paint obtained abused in what seeks to have actually been a multi-car fender bender or a case entailing being mashed right into various other automobiles while parked. The air bags really did not fire, however this type of damages had not been worth choosing a 23- year-old E-Class.
