Mercedes resurrected the old 220 model designation for its new W114/W115 four cylinder saloon launched in 1968. Unlike the previous six cylinder 220 the new car used a 2.2 litre four cylinder engine which gave the car good performance with the usual Mercedes refinement and reliability.
The 220 shared its attractive body design with the smaller 200 and the larger engined 250 models. Cars sold in the UK were well often equipped with power steering and sometimes automatic transmission. This popular range of saloons continued until 1976.
