The Mercedes-Benz 190 is a series of sedans manufactured and marketed by Mercedes-Benz from 1982 to 1993.

History of the Mercedes-Benz 190

Mercedes-Benz sprung a big shock on the public and media on December 8, 1982. New 190 and 190E models were unveiled. There was nothing it replaced, and nothing it replaced it with. This was only the start. The car's angular shape was unexpected and made contemporary automobiles seem dated. Increases in safety features proved to the public that the "Baby-Benz" was just as secure as the flagship S-Class. At first, there were two distinct engine options available: one with a carburetor and the other with mechanical fuel injection from Bosch. The 190 D and the 2.3-16 were also released the next year (1983). The D was powered by a 72-horsepower, 2.0L diesel engine, which was very economical. The 2.3-16 earned its reputation by setting a few world records at Italy's Nardo racetrack.
The brand-new rear multilink suspension really changed the game. A specific control arm guided each of the back wheels. As a result of the system, accidental wheel rotations are prevented. It was lighter and more comfortable than conventional rear suspension systems.


The market value for a used Mercedes-Benz 190 ranges from $2,200 to $7,000, depending on the condition
