W124 Smaller Than W123?

Is it my imagination, or is the W124 a slightly smaller car than the W123? I've owned two 123s and am consider- ing a 124, but the car looks significantly smaller,
almost as small as a 190. Maybe it's the styling that creates this impression.
Also, which car is heavier, model for model?

I think it is the shape... the W123 is more bulbous shape where W124 is more wedge shape. It is way bigger than the 190E... and it absolutely a great size. We had a 190E so we know.

Compared to the W123 the W124 looks so much smaller than it really is because of the much improved aerodynamics which cause the body to be much smaller between the wheels plus the trunk getting significantly smaller from rear wheels to the bumper.
In compariosn W210 looks biggest although indeed W211 is (same as with W123 and W124).
