Mercedes-Benz 190 History

1955–1963: W121 Chassis

The W121 chassis represents the early years of the Mercedes-Benz 190. Introduced in 1955, this model was part of the "Ponton" series, named for its pontoon-style bodywork, which was a significant design departure from the pre-war models. This era of Mercedes-Benz was marked by a move towards more modern and streamlined designs. The 190 models under the W121 chassis, also known as the 190 and 190D, were powered by a 1.9-liter gasoline engine and a 1.9-liter diesel engine, respectively. These cars were well-regarded for their solid construction, comfort, and reliability. Mercedes-Benz aimed to provide a more accessible luxury car that retained the prestige of the brand, which was a success with the 190 series.

1962–1965: W110 Chassis

The W110 chassis ushered in the second generation of the Mercedes-Benz 190, commencing in 1962. This line was part of the larger "Fintail" series, distinguished by American-style tailfins that were a styling trend of the era. Initially, the 190c and 190Dc models featured four-cylinder engines. The design was more angular compared to the W121, reflecting a shift in automotive trends towards sharper lines. Safety improvements were also significant in this model, with Mercedes-Benz making strides in passenger protection. The W110 chassis was shorter and less luxurious compared to its larger siblings in the Mercedes line-up, but it maintained the brand's reputation for quality and durability.

1984–1993: W201 Chassis

The W201 chassis, introduced in 1984, marked a significant leap forward and represented the compact class of Mercedes-Benz. Known as the Mercedes-Benz 190 or the 'Baby Benz', it signalled the brand's entry into the compact segment. The 190 series under the W201 chassis was designed with a focus on aerodynamics, fuel efficiency, and advanced safety features, including anti-lock brakes and airbags. This model range was also notable for its diverse engine lineup, offering four-cylinder, six-cylinder, and diesel options. The W201 chassis set new standards in its class for handling and performance, thanks in part to its patented multi-link rear suspension. This car's success helped redefine Mercedes-Benz as a more versatile automaker capable of competing in various market segments.
