The Mercedes-Benz E-Class W124, launched from the year 1987 to 1993, redefined the sedan 4-door segment with its classic design and innovative features. The standout model of this generation was the sophisticated 250 D Mt trim. Its visually pleasing aesthetics added a touch of elegance to its robust performance and reliable functionality. Accentuating the exterior, the firm yet comfortable seating arrangement comfortably accommodated up to five passengers. The 250 D Mt trim presented itself as a perfect blend of style, comfort, and performance.
The mechanism was another impressive aspect of the E-Class W124. This model’s performance was attributed to a 2.5-liter diesel engine with multi-point fuel injection system, further enhanced with an inline layout accommodating 5 cylinders. Each cylinder was incorporated with 2 valves, resulting in precise fuel combustion and efficient engine performance. The torque turnover of this model sat at a substantial 3100 RPM, alongside offering a modest 94 horsepower at 4600 RPM. The 0.088180245 ft^3 engine capacity ascertains the vehicle’s stellar efficiency in fuel utilization.
This sedan was equipped with a manual transmission, sporting 5 distinctly calibrated gears enhancing the driving experience as per varying speeds and terrains. Being a rear-wheel-drive vehicle, the power delivery was centralized towards achieving dynamic road behavior and enhanced drivability. The car could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 27 seconds, reaching a top speed of 109 mph. To support such powerful drive dynamics, the vehicle was fitted with independent, multi-wishbone, stabilizer bar back suspension. To top it off, an 18-gallon fuel tank catering to its diesel engine ensured longer drive ranges without the hassles of frequent refueling.
