Mercedes-Benz Malaysia recently unveiled its new E-Class, now available in two variants for the local market.
With over 14 million vehicles delivered since 1946 globally, the E-Class is the bestselling model series in the history of Mercedes-Benz. And now refreshed with a new attitude, the new E-Class portrays a new form of luxury with the latest innovation and exclusivity, available in two variants: the Mercedes-Benz E 300 AMG Line and the E 200 Avantgarde.
Here’s a closer look at both models:
Mercedes-Benz E 300 AMG Line
First we check out the new E 300 AMG Line, which features with a new bumper in the style of the AMG Performance model and 19-inch AMG 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels. And the new E-Class rear end is also with a new bumper, split tail lamps and a new boot lid. The inner design of the tail lamps was revised for all models.
Performance wise, the 2-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine packs 258 horsepower with a torque of 370 Nm, making it capable of completing the century sprint in 6.2 seconds and a top speed of 250km/h.
Of course it comes with the host of comfort and interior features as well as safety and assistance package, which is already expected from a quality carmaker like Mercedes-Benz.
The new E-Class has the latest generation of Mercedes-Benz driving assistance systems providing cooperative support to drivers. This results in an especially high level of active safety: as the E-Class is able to react if the driver doesn’t. For example, the active parking assist with PARKTRONIC and 360° camera on the E 300 AMG Line makes it possible to enter and leave parking spaces automatically.
The new E 300 AMG Line is priced around RM375,000 prior to taxes.
Mercedes-benz E 200 Avantgarde
As standard, the E 200 comes with the attractive Avantgarde exterior, which significantly emphasises the dynamism and elegance of the vehicle. Its features include a sleek new grille with newly-designed LED high performance headlamps and tail lights, bonnet with a pronounced power domes, and complemented with 18-inch 5-twin spoke light alloy wheels. The interplay of all design features results in a desirable vehicle.
Plus, there are two new paint colours – grey metallic and high-tech silver available for the new E-Class as part of the model refresh.
Meanwhile, under the hood, the E 200 packs 197 horsepower with 320 Nm of torque, which allows it to go from 0-100km/h in slight above 7 seconds, and having a top speed of 240km/h.
