Mercedes-Benz 190: all 190 models (W201 series) 1982 to 1993 : The Essential Buyer's Guide Paperback / softback

Part of the Essential Buyer's Guide series


The 190 (W 201) was a landmark car for Mercedes-Benz: the predecessor to today's C-Class models, it was the company's first compact saloon (sedan) and combined advanced engineering with a new direction in body styling, later followed by the W124 and R129 series.

Engines available included robust petrol and diesel `fours', as well as a silky `straight-six'.

The sporting 190 E 2.3-16 and 2.5-16 models, initially developed with Cosworth, took Mercedes to new levels of performance.

Altogether, nearly 1.9 million cars were produced, and today the 190 is an increasingly sought-after modern classic. This guide will help you learn about the differences between models, and what to look for when buying.

What are the true running costs, and what issues - with the mechanicals, body or interior - should you be wary of?

Is a restoration worth considering? This handy guide will take you step-by-step through the process of finding and evaluating a good 190 and making a successful purchase.

Essential data and information about clubs and specialists will help you look after and enjoy your 190.
