More details surrounding the new W205 Mercedes-Benz C 200 Exclusive variant have finally been revealed. Mercedes-Benz Malaysia has long confirmed the model’s price at RM252,888, but only now has it revealed a spec sheet that details the car.
The new C 200 Exclusive joins the existing C 200 Avantgarde (RM248,888) and C 250 AMG (RM287,888) as the mid-range variant of the locally-assembled W205 C-Class family. This could also be joined by a new base C 180 and new top-shelf C 300.
Its a look that’s familiar, given that it is pretty much identical to the C 250 Exclusive variant which has been discontinued in Malaysia. The Exclusive Line exterior kit here predominantly consists of a unique front bumper, traditional radiator grille and bonnet-mounted Three-Pointed Star. The Air Panel active shutter grille that was on the C 250 Exclusive appears to be no longer available.
The C 200 Exclusive also notably gains Mercedes-Benz LED Intelligent Light System (previously only available on the C 250 AMG), and like the C 250 Exclusive, a front-only sunroof is specified. Unique 18-inch five, twin-spoke alloy wheels are equipped (pictured here). Comparatively, the C 200 Avantgarde offers 18-inch five-spoke rollers.
Just like the recently-updated C 200 Avantgarde, the C 200 Exclusive gets dual exhaust pipes each side of the rear bumper. The variant also gets a Comfort suspension, unlike the C 200 Avantgarde’s Agility Control arrangement that has been lowered by 15 mm.
Based on the brief specifications provided in this brochure, it looks like most of the C 200 Exclusive’s remaining equipment mirror that of the C 200 Avantgarde, save for the brown open-pore ash wood trim, leather-covered dash and an analogue clock on the dash. Unfortunately, keyless entry is still not available in the C 200 range, though keyless engine start is standard.
Other key interior appointments include Audio 20 CD with Touchpad infotainment system, Active Parking Assist, Rear View Camera, and an Interior Lighting Package. The Air Balance perfume package that was on the C 250 Exclusive has been given a miss.
There aren’t any changes to note in the powertrain department, where the C 200 continues to feature a 2.0 litre twin-scroll turbocharged four-cylinder engine which delivers 184 hp and 300 Nm of torque. The model is capable of performing the century sprint in 7.3 seconds, and has a top speed of 235 km/h. A 7G-Tronic seven-speed torque converter automatic transmission is equally standard fare.
