4-door 5-seater saloon/estate car.
Diesel-engined version of the new W123 range, of which 2.4-litre sold here as estate car. Power ranged from 55bhp to 72bhp, so smallest car had sub-80mph top speed, great for taxis, appalling for private owners. Even so, extremely popular in Germany and other cheap-diesel countries. But in the UK, nearly unknown, and why not?
