Considered one of the most reliable Mercedes-Benz models (though W123 was more bulletproof) and some quality issues at the very beginning. Good performance and handling. Gear change slow; road noise was one of its drawbacks. Four-wheel-drive models dubbed 4Matic, from 1986. All models fuel-injected with the exception of base 200. Porsche cooperation on suspension and chassis design on 500E. Facelifted in 1993 when the cars became the E-Klasse (q.v.). Formed the basis of the Ssangyong Chairman (1997–2013).
