    Background: A NEW RANGE OF MODELS WAS ANNOUNCED BY THE FAMOUS MERCEDES-BENZ FACTOR IN STUTTGART, WEST GERMANY, AUGUST 17. MOTOR ENGINEERS AT THE FACTORY HAVE BEEN HARD AT WORK PREPARING THE NEW MODELS, WHICH GENERALLY FOLLOW THE EXISTING MERCEDES STYLING, FOR THEIR DEBUT. RIGOROUS FACTORY AND ROAD TESTS ARE CARRIED OUT BEFORE THE CARD LEAVE THE FACTORY.

    SMALLEST OF THE RANGE IS THE 190 (PETRO) AND THE 190D (DIESEL). THE NEW BODY LINE GIVES GREATLY IMPROVED VISIBILITY AND STYLING, NEW SUSPENSION WITH SINGLE-JOINT SWING-AXLE AT THE REAR TO GIVE MORE COMFORT AND BETTER ROAD HOLDING. IT IS POWERED BY AN IMPROVED 4-CYLINDER 1.9 LITRE ENGINE WITH GREATER POWER AND FLEXIBILITY AND WILL SEAT FIVE OR SIX PEOPLE. NEWEST OF THE LINE, THE 300SE, HAS AIR SUSPENSION, DUNLOP DISC BRAKES ON ALL WHEELS, AUTOMATIC GEARBOX AND POWER ASSISTED STEERING. OVER TWO MILLION MILES WERE COVERED PERFECTING THE 300SE WITH ITS FUEL-INJECTION 3-LITRE 6-CYLINDER ENGINE.
