The first generation of this sedan made its debut at the end of 1984 in Seville, Spain. presented the eagerly awaited new (W 124 series) in the upper midsize 200 D, 250 D, 300 D, 200, 230 E, 260 E and 300 E. In addition, 200 E version for to Italy. In terms of design and the number of elements of the 190 model (W the predecessor of the C-Class from Parallel to the compact class was for example, the use of high-strength steel and materials to reduce weight.

the lightweight design engineers made further safety – thanks in part to innovative of design and development. For example, the 124 is the first model of the vehicle, to the Mercedes-Benz not only classic tests, but also the computer simulation. The passenger cell is rigid in terms of side and sustainability and resistance to rollover and is with ingenious front and crumple zones. Salon series also meets the for an asymmetrical frontal collision 40 percent overlap at 55 km / h In addition, areas of contact with and cyclists were designed to the energy of impact should the arise.

Elegant lines environmental performance

Developed by Bruno (Bruno Sacco), Galitzendorf (Joseph Gallitzendörfer) Pfeiffer and (Peter Pfeiffer), the logic of the of the saloon was pragmatic and functional. rear end, for example, is advantageous in terms of drag. optimization of the new sedan (drag of Cd = 0,44 in the W 123 series to Cd = 0,29 or in the W 124 series, depending on engine reduces fuel consumption compared to previous model. In there were few differences in between the powerful six-cylinder and the four-cylinder variants with power. Externally all models are except for the rear silencer a six-cylinder models with two and additional air vents in the front and 300 D models equipped with air

Engineers develop from a number of W124 series All new, for example, six-cylinder with direct injection 260 E (kV/170 125 hp) and E 300 (140 hp kVt/190). All diesel engines for the new Diesel of 124 – 200 D (53 kVt/72 hp), 250 D (66 kW / 90 hp) and 300 D (80 kVt/109 hp) – designed as a modular series. windshield wiper to clean the windscreen made its debut in the W She cleans 86% of the windscreen – the largest area in the world of cars the launch of the W124. Outstanding characteristics on the other hand, are by the tried and tested front and axle design from the class. This incorporated a another nest independent suspension with feature control and an independent multi rear suspension.

Saloon’s big the Estate

Mercedes E-Class E500

The history of the 124 series is by a previously unrivaled variety of body styles and innovations. of the Estate (S124 series of E-class) in September 1985 at the Motor Show (IAA) in is an important step towards 124 family. Estate was largely to the Saloons in terms of technological and design. In addition to changes in the of the roof and other concomitant there were no differences to the The only changes to the major braking system and chassis to adapt to the increased payload, they are taken from the virtually unchanged. Depending on the the drag coefficient of the Estate ranged from Cd = 0,34 to

If possible, the designers incorporated the Estate the safety standards in the Saloons. In particular, they use the findings from research the safety of the development of the rear of the body of the wagon, a critical rear ends. One example is the tank, which featured abutting surface. This that in the event of a rear in deformation of the rails will the tank and it will be displaced cables will be secured to avoid contact with the

The close relationship between the and wagon is evident in the engines to them. Genuine Estate consists of eight models, – with one exception – used that also featured in the 3.0 – liter six-cylinder turbodiesel with 300 TD TURBO output of 105 hp was developed by engineers at Mercedes-Benz aspirated Saloon unit.

However, the assembly of these new models was so that the coupe wheelbase is by 8.5 cm. This serves to emphasize the character and make the two-door of a fully independent body, in of design and form.

Reinforced side sills and doors, and a high proportion of high-strength is used to compensate for the lack of One characteristic design element differs from other body variants were the rub with integrated chrome Positioned between the wheel at bumper height, thus a visual link between the and rear aprons are painted in colors – metallic.

The car is based on the Coupé, preparation for the role of a vehicle a retractable roof has taken investment projects. About parts must be redesigned to strengthen the chassis. For example, the were welded to interior of the weakest areas for achieving strength and hardness.

Complete system is achieved by combining pillar with an automatic bar. Designed specifically for the 300 Cabriolet and located behind the seats, this linear bar almost vertically upwards 0.3 seconds of turning.

Among the premieres was the introduction of the 4MATIC four-wheel drive in 1985. system of all-wheel includes electronic control unit and an front-wheel drive with case and differential. In addition to 4MATIC-wheel drive, the concept of Dynamic Governance” also an automatic locking differential and control system acceleration (ASR) – which means in this package Mercedes- offers three speed electronic dynamic control – each system uses from the anti-lock braking ABS.

Also in 1985, the optional system for emission with three-way catalytic for all petrol-engined models in the 124 series the 200 model equipped with a From September 1986 the converter became standard, and the carburettor model 124 series is now on this system to control

Development of the series

Furthermore, in September all models are enhanced with equipment package, including brakes (ABS) and a heated exterior mirror.

As part of the ’89″ in February 1989 diesel passenger cars equipped with revised They also include new with oblique injection, has led to improved levels of emission and Emissions are further reduced by a complex system of emission (AGR), which combines the catalytic converter specially for diesel engines with a tuned exhaust gas recirculation This highly effective is available from October as an option for models with engines and weather six months for turbocharged models.

The first model

Mercedes E-Class

In September 1989 Mercedes-Benz a completely revised model for the category at the IAA International Motor in Frankfurt. The focus of the model of stylistic changes in housing and interior.

Therefore, was 162 hp kVt/220 – KVt/11.01 8.1 hp less the sports car (170 hp kVt/231).

with these top models in the the Stuttgart company also a fourth body variant in the class – the long wheelbase This restored the sales long version after an of four years. Long was developed in close cooperation the firm Binz bodies in Lorch (Lorh) who then for series production. The wheelbase has increased by 80 centimeters to 3.60 while also increasing the length of 80 cm Unlike the preceding with a long wheelbase of the 250D and 260 E are six full-size doors and seat in terms of depth of and backrest height nearly that of the rear.
