FOR SALE: 2008 Mercedes-Benz S350 CDI BlueEfficiency (W221)
For less than the price of a new VW Polo Vivo, you can get behind the steering wheel of what was, not so long ago, the epitome of luxury and class in the local market.
Year and Make/Model: 2008 Mercedes-Benz S350 CDI BlueEfficiency (W221)
Engine: 3.0L V6 Turbodiesel
Mileage: 174 500km
Location: Cape Town
PRICE: R229 000
In many ways the W221-generation of Mercedes-Benz's S-Class was a return to form for the Three-pointed star, which had arguably strayed a little from its usual bullet-proof durability recipe in the early 2000s.
As is usually the case, this generation of S-Class introduced a raft of new technologies to the Mercedes-Benz line-up (and to the world), but it is also arguably the first time that a turbodiesel derivative received widespread acclaim in South Africa.
The S350 CDI BlueEfficiency is powered by silky-smooth but punchy 3.0L V6 turbodiesel that delivers a strong 173kW and 540Nm of torque, while also achieving excellent fuel economy. Power goes to the rear wheels via a 7-speed automatic transmission.
This 2008 example features striking 19-inch alloy wheels and a very neat cream/wood/black trim interior.
