The Mercedes-Benz W201 was the first compact executive car from German automaker Mercedes-Benz. It was introduced in 1982, positioned in the size category below the E-Class and marketed under variants of the Mercedes-Benz 190 nameplate.

The W201 featured innovative rear 5-link suspension, subsequently used in E and C class models, front and rear anti-roll bars, anti-dive and anti-squat geometry—as well as available airbags, ABS brakes and seatbelt pretensioners.

The W201 enjoyed strong sales in Europe but fared poorly in the United States. Series production ended 13 April 1993 after the manufacture of approximately 1.8 million examples. The 190 and its variants were succeeded in the compact executive car segment by the C-Class, a newly-created nameplate.
