The 250 and 280 coupes and convertibles used the same body as the 220SEb coupe and convertible. However, a new four-door body, developed from the 220SEb convertible styling, was introduced with the 250SE Sedan. The rear seats of the coupes and convertibles have much more room than the 220. The tire diameter was increased from 13” to 14”. A horizontal-mount hydropneumatic (oil-air) compensating shock absorber was mounted above the rear axle to control ride height and provide a more smooth and stable ride. Four-wheel disc brakes were also added.
