One model that set the standard when in comes to power and features is the fully-equipped E Class which is released in 1994. It includes the E320 sedan, wagon and coupe, E420 sedan and E500 sedan. Unlike the previews models wherein the numbers appear before the letter, the E class put the reengineered naming system first and the numbers represent the displacement.
The 1994 MB E320 was available in four variants: four-door sedan, four-door station wagon, two-door coupe, and a 2-door cabriolet. They all housed the then very powerful 3.2L I-6 DOHC SPI 24 valve engine with electronic ignition system. Inline-6 delivers smooth, powerful performance. I-6 engines are inherently smoother than other engine types of comparable displacement. Run by unleaded fuel in a 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, the first E320 features a hydraulic power-assist steering, 4 wheel disc brakes, front and rear anti-roll bar, a P195/65SR15.0 front and rear tires, dual airbags, power sunroof, dual power remote heated outside mirrors, front fog lights, and an impressive interior.
After two decades, the MB beefed up their E320 with numerous added features. It has 3.2L V-6 SOHC SMPI 18 valve engine, variable intake length, 115 amp alternator, 100 amp hours (Ah) battery, 5-speed electronic automatic transmission with overdrive, transmission lock-up, driver selection, TouchShift, ABS and driveline traction control, 3.27 axle ratio, dual stainless steel exhaust, and a ULEV emissions. Steering and suspension is easy with hydraulic power-assist rack and pinion steering, speed-sensing assisted steering, sensotronic 4 wheel disc brakes with front vented discs, brake assistance, stability control, front independent suspension, front multi-link suspension, front anti-roll bar, front coil springs, gas-pressurized front shocks, rear independent suspension, rear multi-link suspension, rear anti-roll bar, rear coil springs, gas-pressurized rear shocks, front and rear 16.0" x 8.00" silver alloy wheels, and P225/55HR16.0 BSW Performance AS front and rear tires.
The E320, known for its safety is jammed with several features like the 4 channel 4-wheel anti-lock braking system (ABS), daytime running lights, center high mounted stop light, dual airbags, dual seat mounted side airbags, curtain 1st and 2nd row overhead airbags, airbag occupancy sensor, rear side-impact airbag, front height adjustable seatbelts with 4 front and rear pre-tensioners, rear center 3 point, ignition disable security, panic alarm, tracker system, and security system. Not to mention the interior luxury and convenience, the E320 provides for each of its passengers. And above all, the security and peace of mind of the people it moves is the best proof that the MB E320 is one of the best.
