In comparison with the W143, the W153 had a more modern style and complete with a trunk integrated. The chassis of the W153 was derived from the previous automobile, with front and rear suspension independent brakes drum hydraulic on all four wheels. The six-cylinder engine displaced 2.3 liters (hence the name "230") and breathed through a pair of carbs, with only 55 horsepower; thanks in part to the low compression ratio of 6.6: 1. The output power was almost the same as that of the W143, although with a little more refinement and torque, while power is fed to the rear wheels through a transmission is fully synchronized four-speed. The performance is understandably relaxed, but the refinement and quality make the car feel much more dynamic than suggested its roots prior to the war. The policies of the government of Germany affected the production because Mercedes had no choice but to support the war effort, and as such, are only produced 4,264 cars until 1943.
