The Mercedes Benz 180 was produced from 1953 though 1962, during which 118,234 examples were produced. The vehicle was offered as a Saloon, with four doors and accommodating four passengers. The 180 had an updated and modern appearance when compared with the post-war 170 model it replaced. Its stylish design, and Mercedes reliability and quality made this a successful vehicle.

Under the hood was a 1767 cc, side-valve engine that had been used in the 170 SV. In 1957, Mercedes replace the engine with a 1897 cc overhead cam unit. This engine was used until 1962 when production ceased.

The design of the unitary body-shell became a standard that Mercedes mimicked in many of its saloon models throughout the years.
