The W201 Mercedes was the company’s first modern “Baby Benz;” it resembled a shrunken version of the successful mid- and full-size sedans the company was known for worldwide. The 190E has recently become very desired and collectible because of its German sport sedan status, original and low mileage examples such as this 190E have become extremely hard to find!  

This example was made in Germany in July 1990 and came with the following options – sunroof, anti-lock brakes, power antenna, power front bucket seats, cruise control, driver’s side airbag and more. Sold new at Crown Eurocars, St. Petersburg Florida and was a one family owned car until 2019. Only has 46,000 actual miles and is in stunning overall original condition! You will be hard pressed to find another example this nice!  

Dressed in it’s original Arctic White (code 147U) with light grey lower body cladding, the car’s paint and trim are in very good overall. The bodywork is up to the usual bank-vault standards one expects from a modern Benz. The engine bay is extremely tidy, the battery looks good, the trunk is in very good order and has floor mats. The 190 has Mercedes’ trick monoblade wiper system; it covers 86 percent of the windshield compared to a simple, single arc wiper.  

This Baby Benz wears Michelin Energy MVX4 Plus radials, size 195/65R15. Each one is mounted on a factory alloy wheel and all tires and wheels are in very good order. 

Under the counterbalanced hood is a 2.6L SOHC inline six-cylinder with Bosch KE-Jetronic Multi-point fuel injection system and electronic ignition. This was an up-level option to the base 2.3L four-cylinder engine. Backup the six-pot motor is a gated four-speed automatic transmission (code 4G-Tronic). Driver convenience features include electronic climate control, power steering, power disc brakes with anti-lock (code 470), cruise control (code 444), power windows, power adjustable front bucket seats (codes 221 and 222), sunroof (code 412), exterior temperature indicator, fog lights and power antenna (code 531). 

Recent service work includes fuel pump and filter, spark plugs and wires, distributor cap and rotor plus serpentine belt.  

Inside, the car has a grey M-B Tex interior (code 178). The front buckets and rear bench are in original excellent condition with matching carpet and wood veneer in the center stack to add an element of warmth. The gray headliner looks great, too. A leather-wrapped, four-spoke steering wheel looks great, along with its matching leather-wrapped gearshift lever. There’s a crack in the trim that surrounds the instrument cluster, which has a full array of VDO gauges. Otherwise, the instrument panel and inner door panels are in excellent order. The center console with its shift lever help complete the interior. 

The W201 introduced a five-link rear suspension subsequently used in E and C class models, front and rear anti-roll bars, anti-dive and anti-squat geometry—as well as airbags, ABS brakes and seatbelt pretensioners. Its extensive use of light-weight high-strength steel enabled it to withstand a concrete barrier offset crash at 35 mph without serious passenger injury or cabin deformation. 

Competition to this MB 190E in 1991 included Acura’s Integra, Audi’s 80 2.8E, BMW’s 325, Buick’s Skylark LE, Honda’s Accord EX, Mitsubishi’s Galant, Nissan’s Stanza, Oldsmobile’s Cutlass Calais International Series, Pontiac’s Grand Am LE and Toyota’s Camry LE. 

Documentation includes original owner’s manual, original operator’s guide, 1991 service guide, original owner’s service and warranty information, original supplemental restraint system booklet, factory stereo guide, original 24-hour roadside assistance guide and more.
