About the Mercedes-Benz 300-Class

The Mercedes-Benz 300-Class models have been described in many ways by drivers and reviewers, and almost all over it good. The cars have been called "nearly perfect," "timeless," "awesome," "reliable," "luxurious machines," and just about anything else you can think of. Handling was impressive and gas mileage was, surprisingly, relatively good. The only drawback seems to have been weak mid-range torque and a lack of cup holders.

The 3.0-liter, 6-cylinder, 177-hp engine formed the backbone of this group, although more powerful engines were available in certain models. Standard equipment such as power door locks, power windows, and driver's-side airbags added to the luxury image of the cars, while options such as durable leather seats and sunroofs only improved on that image.
