W124 is the Mercedes-Benz internal chassis designation reference for the 1985 to 1995 version of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Due to the high cost of German engineering and build quality, the model was designed to last many miles with awards won by high mileage versions. Front suspension is by way of a separate spring and damper while the rear suspension features the Mercedes-Benz multi-link axle introduced in 1982 on the 190 and which is now standard on many modern cars. Much of the 124's engineering and many of its features were advanced automotive technology at introduction and incorporated innovations that were adopted throughout the industry. It had one of the lowest drag coefficients of any vehicle at the time due to its aerodynamic body which included plastic moulding for the undercarriage to streamline airflow beneath the car, reducing fuel consumption and wind noise. Another feature of the W124 is the single windscreen wiper that had an eccentric mechanism at its base extending the wiper's reach to the top corners of the windscreen.
