4-door 5-seater saloon.
First of 'New Generation' W114/W115 range, with smooth all-new monocoque, vertical lamp units for recognition, and semi trailing link rear suspension for better stability. 200s not sold here until 1975, 230.4 from 1973. 100mph from smallest version. UK cars usually loaded with 'extras' like automatic and power-steering. Much more prestige here than in Germany. Part of a very complex, long-running range, and a viable alternative in the Rover or small-engined Jaguar market.
