It looks like the W212 Mercedes-Benz E-Class facelift will be hitting the showrooms real soon. Reader Anol Alias sighted this white Mercedes-Benz E200 CGI at JPJ Putrajaya this week.
When the W212 facelift was unveiled, the regular non-AMG car was said to be available with two different front grilles – one is the sporty grille without a hood ornament as seen on this white car, and another is a more traditional-looking star-less grille with a hood ornament.
The fact that the badge on the rear of this car says E200 could mean that Mercedes-Benz Malaysia is going with the sports grille for all models.
A look at the interior also reveals a more specced up interior compared to the pre-facelift E200 on sale now. There’s a three-spoke sports steering as well as a column-mounted shifter, features that were only found on the E250 CGI on the pre-facelift W212 range. The pre-facelift E200 had a regular gear knob and a four spoke steering wheel.
