As previewed earlier this week, two new special edition W212 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Edition E variants are now on sale in Malaysia. Known specifically as the Mercedes-Benz E 200 and E 250 Edition E variants, prices for the two cars are listed at an unchanged RM364,888 and RM403,888, respectively.

The new special editions largely feature cosmetic upgrades made to the existing E 200 and E 250 Avantgarde vehicles. As such, similar powertrains are carried forward without change.

The E 200 Edition E maintains its 184 hp/300 Nm 2.0 litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine, while the E 250 Edition gets the same powerplant, tuned to deliver 211 hp and 350 Nm of torque instead.

And just as before, both of these W212 variants feature a seven-speed 7G-Tronic Plus torque converter automatic transmission, with a steering column-mounted Direct Select shifter.

Just as we confirmed yesterday, additional equipment added to the E 200 Avantgarde forms the E 200 Edition E (pictured above). Specifically, the extra kit includes a set of 18-inch five large-spoke alloy wheels that replace the standard 17-inch rollers, larger perforated front brake discs to match, “Mercedes-Benz” lettering on the brake calipers and an illuminated Three-Pointed Star on the front grille.

Elsewhere, the E 200 Edition E is left largely unaltered from the standard Avantgarde variant. The car still features a two-bar radiator grille, LED headlights with Dynamic Light System, adaptive LED brake lights, and all the usual trappings of the W212’s Avantgarde line.

Inside, and apart from the Edition E emblems on the floor mats, the E 200 continues to offer black ash wood trim elements, an Artico leather-wrapped dashboard, and full leather seats among other highlights. The car is also notably specified with a COMAND Online infotainment system, a DVD player, a reverse camera, and an active parking assist system.

Similarly adding on equipment to the existing E 250 Avantgarde’s arsenal, the higher-spec Edition E variant sports an upgrade to an AMG Line exterior kit, which introduces an AMG-specific front bumper, side skirts and rear bumper with dual integrated exhaust tip finishers. Just like the E 200, the E 250 Edition E also gets an illuminated Three-Pointed Star.

A similar set of 18-inch five twin-spoke AMG alloy wheels are specified, which look very similar to those on the E 300 BlueTEC Hybrid and the E 400 we’ve reviewed before. And as it goes, Edition E badges are visible on the front fenders.

While the majority of the interior is left identical to the current E 250 Avantgarde, the Edition E gets a new AMG design three-spoke steering wheel and a Surround View Camera. Elsewhere, the variant adds a power-operated panoramic sliding glass sunroof, and a Keyless-Go (keyless entry and engine push-start button) system on top of all that is available specs-wise on the E 200.

To recap, the new Mercedes-Benz E 200 Edition E retails from RM364,888, while the E 250 Edition E demands RM403,888 — both prices are OTR, without insurance. Also, do keep in mind that these special edition variants are expected to be on sale for a limited time only.

The listed prices include Mercedes-Benz Malaysia’s four years unlimited mileage warranty, while just like the E 300 BlueTEC Hybrid, they are also available for purchase under the company’s Agility Financing plans.
