Mercedes Benz Internal Code Lineup Revealed

Mercedes-Benz has quite the complicated internal code lineup, with a puzzling combination of letters and numbers to symbolize every vehicle. It started out as a simple letter and number combination, but the introduction of newer models created a new list of internal code lineups. The letter and number combination used to correspond to the engine displacement, but that's not always the case today. This is a quick guide on what all of the letters and numbers mean.

This is the smallest car in the Mercedes brand lineup that's appropriately given the first name of the alphabet. The code name is W176, with "W" as a four/five door passenger car.
