“Our 190s have always been high quality, safe and reliable cars. Today, however, many customers want more. They want to sit in a car that they do not see everywhere, which is specifically tailored to them. A trend that is independent of gender and passes through all ages. That is why we now bring out three Avantgarde models.”
The 190 line up met the 10th anniversary in an enchanting fashion – with three vivid-coloured models – the azzurro, rosso and the verde. The intention was to brighten up the long-running model and draw a specific crowd into the showroom. Each of these limited-production models featured distinctive paintwork and upholstery, and each had a distinctive niche.
The second part of our series puts the spotlight on the athletic Azzurro. Apart from the eye-catching, vivid 343 blue-metallic paint, this model came equipped with some sporty goodies to put it apart from the others. Azzurro rolled of the factory with a 2.3 134HP engine along with ‘Sportline’ suspension which gives this model lower stance and increased handling capabilities. But the real party trick and focus of our design is the interior! This was one of those times, that Stuttgart based company went out of their strictly defined borders – Azzurro interior features 4 different colour accents on every single seat and door cards along with small accents on shift lever and steering wheel. Not an ordinary Mercedes-Benz look. We are celebrating this intriguing model with our own interpretation – in form of 1 of 39 limited edition run apparel.
