Stuttgart model was modernised in October. The saloon now has a longer engine bonnet, slightly raked windscreen and flowing lines. The Convertible NC, which, together with the Convertible D, had already been given a raked windscreen las year, now features a continuous chrome trim strip as well as doors with a lower top edge.

The newest and smallest in Mercedes Benz range, the 170, which was introduced in October last year proved a great succes. As total of 4 438 units were built this year - this number beeing higher than whole production of other passenger cars.

Great interest has been aroused by the anouncement that the Mercedes concern will be marketing a small model during the coming season. Details, at the time of going to press, are lacking, but it is understood that this car will be a small six-cylinder of about 9 h.p. In addition to this model another new type will be marketed—a 5-litre supercharged straight-eight. The 45-280 h.p. blown straight-eight will be retained, as will be the 21-60 h.p., the 32-90 h.p. 8-cylinder, the 24-100 h.p. 6-cylinder, the 33-140 h.p., the 33-180 h.p. 6-cylinder, and the 38-250 h.p.
