  • Description

    A NEW GENERATION OF MERCEDES-BENZ PASSENGER CARS, INCORPORATING THE LATEST IN ENGINEERING DEVELOPMENTS AND CRISP, MODERN STYLING, HAS BEEN INTRODUCED THIS YEAR BY THE WEST GERMAN FIRM OF DAIMLER-BENZ AG. IMPROVEMENTS INCLUDE A NEW LOOK AND A NEW REAR SUSPENSION FOR THE MEDIUM-PRICED MODELS, AND NEW AND LARGE ENGINES FOR THOSE IN THE HIGHER PRICE RANGE.

    THE HIGHER-PRICED 280 S AND SE, CARRY THE SAME BODY STYLING MARKED BY THE TRADITIONAL RADIATOR, GRILL, WITH ONLY MINOR CHANGES. BUT UNDER THE BONNET IS A NEWLY DEVELOPED 2.8 LITRE ENGINE, PROVIDING ALL THE LUXURIES OF MORE POWER - IMPROVED ACCELERATION, QUIETER OPERATION AND GREATER FLEXIBILITY. ONE NOT-IMMEDIATELY-APPARENT BODY CHANGE - THE CAR INCORPORATES THE LATEST FINDINGS IN SAFETY RESEARCH.

    THE 200, AND THE 200 D BOTH FALL WITHIN THE MEDIUM PRICE RANGE. UNDER THEIR REDESIGNED BODYWORK, THERE ARE SEVERAL BRAIN-CHILDREN OF THE MOST RECENT SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH. PISTON RINGS, FOR EXAMPLES, ARE MOLYBDENUM COATED. THE FOUR-CYLINDER PETROL ENGINES INCORPORATE SOME OF THE CHARACTERISTICS OF FUEL-INJECTION - AN AREA IN WHICH DAIMLER-BENZ HAS CONSIDERABLE EXPERIENCE. AND ALL MODELS ARE FITTED WITH NEW GEARBOXES, WITH AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION AS AN OPTIONAL EXTRA. INDEPENDENT FRONT SUSPENSION REMAINS AS BEFORE - BUT THE REAR AXLE IS ENTIRELY NEW, GIVING IMPROVED ROADHOLDING AND PASSENGER COMFORT.
