They didn't. Only sedans in the '90s, and then the ML and GL SUV's more recently. No more diesel wagons so far. (sadly)

You have to get a VW if you want a diesel wagon, newer than 87.

One way to get a newer Mercedes diesel wagon would be to buy a late-124 300TE and transplant a 602 or 603 engine into it. If Mercedes made a 320TE (210 chassis), you could install a 606 engine. Either of those would require compliance with your state's smog laws, which would probably be harder than the actual transplant.

Yea... The next ones would be 96-97 Passat TDI wagons. They are pretty rare. All the Passat TDI's in 96-97 came with a 5 speed stick (no auto). Good reliable cars. Easy to work on too. I had 2 of them years ago. Hard to find them in good condition. When you find them... They are usually completely ragged out 300,000 plus miles, etc....


Edit: I forgot to mention... The build quality of the interior of the VW is complete crap compared to the MB.

Audi

Isn't there an Audi A3 TDI that's a wagon. It's the VW diesel in it.

35k all loaded up.. but if I needed a new car tomorrow it's what I'd look at.

with 220k on my 300sd.. It may be a while. I'm determined to go till it's engine or trans.

The new issue of the MBCA The Star states that in 2013 MB will be bringing the A and B class here, and also the C-wagon in 4-cyl variants. Perhaps a diesel will accompany the new lineup.
