About the Mercedes Benz W124 models

The W124 might be a mid-sized vehicle platform. Because the costly German engineering and build quality, the W124 principal purpose is to last quite a few miles, with awards actually given and worn by high mileage versions.

Front suspension works on a separate spring and damper which has a rubber top mount. The rear suspension associated with the W124 features the Mercedes multi-link axle introduced in 1982 when using the Mercedes 190 and that is now standard on many modern cars. Estate cars (and optionally, saloons and coupes) had Citroen-like self-leveling rear suspension with suspension struts in lieu of shock absorbers, gas-filled suspension spheres to be able to damping as well as an under bonnet pressurizing pump. Unlike the more common Citroën application Mercedes opted just for a fixed ride height and employed rear coil springs to hold on to the static ride height when parked.

This particular feature was out of stock for the T-model mainly because of its specific layout (no space for storage of the retractable headrests), even though the station-wagon serially were included with a "neighbour-friendly" rear door that has been pulled belonging to the shut-position silently and automatically by just a sensor-controlled servomotor. Except the 200, that has been equipped with a Stromberg or Pierburg carburetor but was out of stock in to the United States Of America, fuel injection system was standard, and then the engines incorporated features that maximised performance. The highest such feature was the addition of an oxygen sensor in to the exhaust system which, jointly with a semi-electronic fuel injection, is likely to make the engine run more efficiently. This improved fuel consumption while simultaneously meeting stricter emission regulations. Mercedes-Benz's 4 wheel drive system, the 4Matic was first introduced located on the W124 in 1986.
