This 2002 Mercedes-Benz E320 wagon was originally sold new at Mercedes-Benz of Beverly Hills, CA and has remained in California its entire life. The car is finished in Alabaster White (960) over Java leather (214), and power is provided by a 3.2-liter V6 paired with a five-speed automatic transmission. Equipment includes a power-operated sunroof, power-adjustable front seats with memory, a rear-facing third-row bench seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, and the Elegance Package. Since the owner’s acquisition in March 2020, the car has received new rear shocks, valve cover gaskets, rear differential bushings, rear axle seal, fuel pump, and front door actuator. The odometer currently displays 122k miles and this E320 wagon is now offered with a clean Carfax report, factory literature, a spare tire with additional OEM center caps, and a clean California title.
The exterior is finished in Alabaster White (960) and features a power-operated sunroof, rain-sensing wipers, a rear wiper, roof rails, fog lights, and aftermarket window tint in order to help preserve the interior. The seller notes that the front bumper has been previously repainted to correct rock chips and the car underwent a paint correction and detail in preparation for the sale. Some rock chips are still visible on the hood which remains original. All panel gaps are even with no signs of previous body work as supported by the accompanying Carfax report. Additionally, the seller notes no rust on the car whatsoever.
Factory 16″ alloy wheels are wrapped in Hankook Ventus V2 Concept tires measuring 215/55 all around. The seller states that three tires will need to be replaced within the next year while one tire was recently replaced with a Blacklion Cilerro BH15. From the factory, the car is equipped with self-leveling rear suspension which recently received new shocks.
The seats are upholstered in Java leather (214) along with a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. The interior features a darker upper dash and burled wood veneer adorning the dashboard, center console, and door panels. Amenities include power-operated front seats with memory, a rear-facing third-row bench, dual-zone automatic climate control, and an Alpine headunit with bluetooth and handsfree capabilities. The driver’s seat cushion has a tear and the left rear door actuator works intermittently. The driver’s door actuator was recently replaced.
A multi-function steering wheel frames a 160-mph speedometer and a 7k-rpm tachometer along with gauges for coolant temperature and fuel level. The digital odometer indicates 122k miles and some dead pixels displaying the time and outside temperature can be seen. No warning lights or errors are present.
The 3.2-liter M112 V6 was factory-rated at 221 horsepower and 232 lb-ft of torque. Power is delivered to the rear wheels via a five-speed automatic transmission. During the last year, maintenance items include new valve cover gaskets, rear differential bushings, rear axle seal, and fuel pump.

The seller also notes the car has passed the California smog check. This S210 is now offered with a clean Carfax report, factory literature, a spare tire with additional OEM center caps, and a clean California title.
The MB Market Insights
There’s something so inherently appealing and classic about a Mercedes-Benz wagon. While the wagon bodystyle isn’t for everyone, those that do like it actually love it (you know who you are). We can’t deny the appeal of the longroof design with seating capacity for 7 and cargo room sufficient for a month-long vacation. It’s worth noting this 210 chassis wagon is a rear-wheel drive example which we strongly prefer from a driver standpoint. The M112 engine has proven itself to be a reliable power plant with low ownership costs and is capable of 200k+ miles with only standard maintenance. This E320 wagon benefits from a clean, accident-free history and having lived its entire life in California, is rust free. As we’ve seen with both the S123 and S124, wagons generally hold more value on the market compared to their sedan counterparts and the S210 has been no exception.
