Mercedes S320 History
The first time the S320 was introduced into the Mercedes S-Class was in 1998 under the W220 (1998-2005) model. This came at a time when the S-Class was completely redesigned, making it smaller than previous versions. This was following a new design theme throughout Mercedes car range. Ironically there was more space inside than the previous model and there was some new luxurious features added such as the new Distronic cruise control system. The S320 engine was a 3.2L V6 petrol engine.
The new W221 (2005-13) model was introduced in 2005 and was larger than the previous version. There was a new more luxurious interior design and sharper features on the exterior design. The S320 engine was no longer a 3.2L V6 petrol but now a 3.0L CDi diesel engine. The newly developed engines offered up to 26% more power. Production of this car will end in 2013.
The Mercedes S320 was first available as a 3.2L petrol engine and the later version was offered as a 3.0L diesel engine. The 3.0L CDi diesel engine is the more economical, offering up to 34mpg. Which engine do you have and how does it perform in terms of fuel economy? Always think of the age, fuel type and engine size when considering fuel economy.
The current version of the Mercedes S320 is offered as a 7-speed automatic and the earlier version had a 5-speed automatic gearbox. Which gearbox do you have and how do you rate its performance? Have a look at our Mercedes gearbox section to find the gearbox parts you need for your S320.
