For a very long time since the production of the Mercedes-Benz 130* began, there was a buzz that Mercedes would launch a large size engine model either with a 1.5 litre or 1.6 litre engine. It was because the Mercedes Benz 130 and 130 H models were performing below expectations because of it’s underpowered engine.
This finally happened in 1936 when the 2-door model (saloon and cabrio variant) rolled out with a 1.7 litre engine having power output of 37.5 hp or 28 Kw. The technical name was W28 and the model, Mercedes-Benz 170 H, where the alphabet ‘H’ meant heckmotor (German) or rear-engine.
This comfortable small car could travel at a maximum speed of 110 km/hr and was produced until 1939.
