"Rough" is not used in conjunction with Mercedes these days, although it certainly was in the '70s-'80s before it finally caught up with BMW and made something besides truck engines.
For all the reasons there are no longer straight-8s, the straight 6 is basically an anachronism these, days, only really BMW retaining them for market differentiation purposes. They're certainly a hazard in front collisions in comparison. And, there's no such thing as an older Mercedes that's better than the newer ones.
But, no V6 is ever going to sound particularly cool out the exhaust pipes.
