The Mercedes W105 219 design from the a-pillar forward was identical to the long-nosed 220a, including the single-carburetor 2.2 Liter 6-cylinder engine. However, from the a-pillar back, it used the shorter body of the W120 180/W121 190 models. This difference can be identified by the one-piece windows in the rear doors, as opposed to the 220a and 220S having separate quarter windows.
The interior of the 219 used the simpler instrumentation of the smaller 180 and 190 sedans, along with bakelite trim instead of wood grain.
