Four years after the introduction of the W110 range, Mercedes-Benz made an update for its model, also known as the "Kleine Heckflosse," and the new version stayed on the market for another three years.
The 190 range was already a highly successful one, and the automaker understood that it had to keep that success going. Other European brands were already launched new or improved models, and Mercedes-Benz made a second step by adding a facelifted version for its W110 lineup. Apart from the seven-seat version, it also produced a regular, four-door sedan with an improved look and updated engines.
There were not too many styling updates for the car's exterior. Yet, at the front, the automaker moved the turn signals from the top of the fenders, close to the A-pillars, below the headlights, also adding parking lights. While there were no changes to the car's profile, the rear end was slightly different. Thus, the rear fascia featured squared and taller taillights, whereas the 1961 model featured slim, tear-shaped ones.
Inside, the automaker left the same dashboard with the slim and tall instrument cluster as in the 1961 model year. But still, there were some changes made in 1967 for the switchgear on the dashboard, plus the addition of an AC unit that used dedicated vents placed below the radio.
Mercedes-Benz updated the engine lineup as well by slightly increasing the displacement for the base diesel and gasoline powerplants. In addition, it also installed a fresh 2.3-liter inline-six, spark-ignited.
Information about this model's engines has not been yet made public, but we will add it as soon as the car is launched or more data becomes available
