Mercedes-Benz W201 190E 2.3 electric sunroof very good condition from private collection (1993)
In the early 80s, the people of Stuttgart had a good knack for the right model policy. The decision to present a completely redesigned entry-level model series in 1982 proved to be the right one – not least because the Mercedes-Benz 190 (W201 series) was exactly the right vehicle to be successful. With its technical qualities, it transported what the interested public rightly expected from a Mercedes-Benz to completely new groups of buyers and was ideally positioned compared to the competing models of the bourgeois middle class. In the vernacular, the small Mercedes soon became known as the "Baby-Benz", but at least the 190 brought it to a number of over 1.8 million copies.
A so-called Baby-Benz can now also be purchased in this auction: More precisely, it is a 190E 2.3, which dates from 1993 and was first registered for circulation in Germany in April of the same year. The sedan with the FIN WDB2010281A712272 comes from 4th hand and still has 2 vehicle keys as well as a very comprehensible history according to the seller. Matching numbers are given, the last completed TÜV has a validity until February 2023.
"Bornit Metallic" (colour code 481) adorns the accident-free exterior of the 190: over the years, the Mercedes-Benz has been completely repainted in the original colour. The paint condition can be described as very good, since neither defects in the sense of scratches or dents, nor inconsistencies in the paint image can be recognized. The black plastic applications on the sedan also have a rich color, and the condition of the so-called "Sacco boards" is also convincing. Rust on the body is not visible. Also worth mentioning is the completely modification-free constitution of the Mercedes-Benz.
Original "Gullideckel" alloy wheels in clean condition adorn the external appearance of the 190 together with goodyear tyres as good as new, which date from the 2020 production year. The brakes are in good condition, the chassis is modification-free and does not cause any worries.
Matching the exterior colour, the interior features the dark interior called "fabric black" (code 061): no stressed seats, no worn switches and no worn steering wheel can be seen here. Overall, the interior of the 190 E impresses with its above-average well-preserved and wear-free condition. After evaluation of the vehicle identification number, the following equipment features are included in this Mercedes-Benz: Electric sunroof with lifting device, central locking, airbag in the steering wheel, automatic antenna and front speakers, power windows electric at the front, rear speakers. A Continental accessory radio serves as the radio. All equipment elements work perfectly, even the instruments have a flawless function.
There are no cracks on the dashboard, in the speedometer unit a mileage of 144,770 kilometers can be read which can be almost traced by means of some cancelled invoices and former TÜV reports. Among the documents is the on-board folder of the W201 including a partially stamped checkbook.
The in-line four-cylinder of this 190 E has a displacement of 2.3 liters and 132 hp, the engine compartment looks well-groomed and clean according to the mileage. The gearshift is handled by a 4-speed automatic transmission, which shifts the gears perfectly. In September 2021, this sedan got a final service.
The condition of the subsoil is extremely healthy, here are not even minimal corrosion points to be seen. At the time, a 190 of the W201 series was a high-quality compact saloon for beginners, which was a complete success for Mercedes-Benz. With this Baby-Benz offered here, the future owner secures an impeccably preserved 2.3-litre saloon, both in visual and technical condition, which he can use either as a collector's item or as a problem-free daily driver with cult status.
