However, the new car is better than its predecessor in many ways.
The choice of the buyer presented a total of more than ten engine variants (and 5-cylinder diesel engine E-class 2.5-liter specially delivered to the markets of Italy, Greece and Portugal).
In March 1997, in-line 6-cylinder engine of 2.8 liters and 3.2 were replaced by the V-shaped 6-cylinder unit.
