UPDATE: Facelifted W211 Mercedes-Benz E230 Test Drive Review

Earlier this month, DCM launched the latest facelifted Mercedes-Benz E-Class which boasts about 2,000 design and engineering changes. In Malaysia, the new E is available in E200 Kompressor in Elegance trim as well as the E280 in Avantgarde trim.

The front end of the facelifted Mercedes-Benz E-Class now comes with an updated grille, bumper and headlamp design. The headlamps now have transparent louvres to the top section, producing a striking light effect when the turn indicator lamps are switched on. The E280 Avantgarde now uses white LED lights as parking lights. The E200 also now gets the Avantgarde model’s side skirts and sportier rear bumper, previously the two models had design designs. On the interior, you get a new four-spoke steering wheel and a new control unit for the THERMOTRONIC 4-zone automatic climate control.

The new locally assembled Mercedes-Benz E 200 Kompressor is priced at RM353,842.80 (on-the-road without insurance) while the locally assembled Mercedes-Benz E 280 Avantgarde is priced at RM423,888.00 (on-the-road without insurance).
