    The smaller Corona is said to be more fuel efficent.

    In terms of features and comfort, the Cefiro has it in spades. It can eclipse the Corona in cabin size alone.

    The Corona is a smaller car. More akin to the Altima than to the Cefiro.

    i've tried both rides and the exsior's cabin space is quite cramped... pedals and the steering wheel is a problem for a big guy driver if you have passengers at the back while the cefiro's cabin has a nice and ample space for big guys like me and the interior also, cefiro's interior is a winner compared to the exsior...

    externally, the exsior's design caters to younger guys since it can be modified to look sporty while the cefiro is more of an executive look thus it caters to those who have more classy taste...

    Personally, I have never tried racing a cefiro before and my friend had an exsior souped up and i really love his ride so my vote goes to exsior even if cefiro is much better...

    300D na Mercedes is around 80hp. Around 120hp kung turbo.

    Yup, may manual na Cefiro during its early years.

    Yep. Ganyan ang daily driver ko, 1977 model. 80hp lang siya. Meron kami 300SD (turbo) 1981. 120hp pero ang laki ng body (S-class).

    Oops OT.

    Having had both cars in our garage...

    Cefiro:
    - Power
    - Space (but the Corona isnt that far behind)
    - Comfort (quiet engine and soft suspension... very stable even at speeds over 160kph)
    - Does around 6km/l++ in the city (2.0 V6 a/t)

    Corona:
    - Fuel efficiency; does around 7-8km/L in the city (2.0 cylinder a/t)
    - Parts availability
    - Sufficient space

    Test drive and go where your heart is. (but of course). My choice for long drives with the family is definitely the Cefiro; for the daily grind in the city and practicality, the Corona has an edge.

    On service parts, the Cefiro only needs a tune-up every 100,000kms using the platinum plugs. As long as the unit has been maintained properly then the wear and tear repairs to the suspension and engine isnt really that expensive (at par with the Corona actually). But if there are major repairs or damages to the engine (i.e. warped cylinder head, etc.) then dehado yung Cefiro against the Corona.
