1982-1993 MERCEDES-BENZ 190 Saloon (W201) specifications Classic and Performance Car

Darlings of the ‘80s upwardly mobile, almost two million 190s rolled out of the factory. Mercedes-Benz did an excellent job of scaling its big car looks down into a BMW 3-series-sized package, and barely lost any interior space. Largely ignored by the classic car market until recently, good examples are starting to be snapped up for what look like bargain prices. Only the Cosworth-tweaked and spoiler-clad 16V models, in 2.3 and 2.5-litre form, have attracted much enthusiast attention, and prices for those can be double those quoted for everyday 190s.
