The 3.0 liter 12v straight six gives nearly 190bhp and even given its weight and age, will rarely kick down to 1st. But when it does it takes all the passengers by shock!
Given its weight, handles very well.
Load capacity is huge. A 2 meter tall pine cabinet went in no problem.
7 Seater design miles better than current MP-Vs.
Built like a tank, and has very little body rust after 14 years of British weather.
Even though it does not have airbags, I pity anyone I hit in this. I have an A-Class Mercedes too and this has 4 airbags, but it is not built to the same standard as the 300TE.
