Books – Muhammad Al-Rubi:

Most used car owners tend to buy an “automatic” car, but due to the low budget, they have to buy a manual car.

While there is a German-made used car with automatic transmission in the second-hand market, with a price starting from 35,000 pounds, which is the “crocodile”.

The crocodile, as it was known in the Egyptian street, is the fourth generation of the Mercedes E-Class, which carries the code W123, and its price in the used market in Egypt ranges from 35,000 pounds to 110,000 pounds.

The alligator comes with a length of 4725 mm, a width of 1784 mm, a height of 1435 mm, and a wheelbase of 2795 mm.

The crocodile was available globally in several versions and gasoline or diesel engines, but in Egypt it was available in two versions, the first E200 with a 4-cylinder gasoline engine, 2000 cc capacity, 93 horsepower, and a torque of 158 Nm at 3000 rpm.

The second is the E230, with a 4-cylinder gasoline engine, a capacity of 2,300 cc, with 108 horsepower and 186 Newton-meters of torque at 2500 rpm.

The two versions are connected to a 4-speed manual transmission, or a 4-speed automatic, with rear-wheel drive.

The Crocodile was provided with several optional interior equipment, most notably the air conditioner, sunroof, electric seats, black or camel brown leather seats, and wooden inlays.

As well as sporty 15-inch wheels, wider horizontal headlights instead of vertical hog lights, and larger-than-before taillights.

The Crocodile has many advantages, most notably its “luxurious” design at the time, which is still preferred by some to this day, its large cabin space, a spacious luggage compartment of up to 500 liters, and a comfortable and strong suspension system, adapting to the most difficult driving conditions.

While its downsides include high fuel consumption rates, low and high price of spare parts, long dimensions that are unsuitable for beginners with little experience, and finally, it is 45 years old.
