Mercedes 200 Overview

The Mercedes 200 is classed as a mid-sized executive car and was produced by the German car manufacturing company Mercedes-Benz. The 200 name has been used for a few different versions of the Mercedes car over the years, but we are focusing on the Mercedes W123 and W124 models which were in production from 1975-86 and 1985-96 respectively. Both these versions are part of the Mercedes E-Class. These cars are classics and have stood the test of time. They are well designed with plenty of room inside. They are extremely well built cars that handle really well. The W123 is said to be better built than the W124. Sound anything like your experience of this car?

Mercedes 200 History

The W123 (1975-86) was introduced in 1975 as a replacement for the W115. This car was larger than its predecessor with more modern looking styling. These cars were available as saloon, estate, with the coupe version coming in 1976 and limousines the following year in 1977. These cars were an instant success and were soon recognised for their excellent build quality. In 1982 they had a mild facelift mainly affecting the shape of the headlights, from round to square. The W124 (1985-96) had real build quality which meant these cars can be expensive but run for miles, lasting a very long time. This was a very aerodynamic car with some great features and innovative design technology. Although this was a very popular version, it was not as well built as its predecessor.
