W205 Mercedes-Benz C200 Exclusive Malaysia  005

Having brought you full details of the new Mercedes-Benz C 200 Exclusive Line yesterday, here’s a full gallery of the car that’s now on display at the Cycle & Carriage Berhad Mercedes-Benz showroom in PJ.

To recap what was reported yesterday, the mid-range C 200 Exclusive Line is priced at RM252,888. It is positioned between the C 200 Avantgarde (RM248,888) and C 250 AMG Line (RM287,888) and will soon be joined by new C 180 and C 300 variants as well.

This car here features an Exclusive Line exterior kit, which adds a more elegant front bumper arrangement, a traditional radiator grille and a bonnet-mounted Three-Pointed Star. Notably, with the traditional grille in place and the Air Panel active shutter grille that was on the C 250 Exclusive no longer available, the slats on the front grille are now also black, rather than silver as before.

This C 200 variant also comes equipped with Mercedes-Benz LED Intelligent Light System headlamps (previously only available on the C 250 AMG), a front-only sunroof and unique 18-inch five twin-spoke alloy wheels which replace the old C 250 Exclusive Line’s 17-inch multi-spoke items.

The rear of the C 200 Exclusive variant is identical to the recently-updated C 200 Avantgarde, also receiving new dual exhaust pipes on each end of the bumper. Distancing itself from the Avantgarde variant, the Exclusive gets a Comfort suspension, different from the sportier Avantgarde’s Agility Control setup that has been lowered by 15 mm.

Open pore brown ash trim is featured on the centre piece and on the door cards here, unlike the C 200 Avantgarde’s piano black centre piece and brushed aluminium trim on door cards. Additionally, the Exclusive variant gets a leather-wrapped dashboard and door cards, smooth leather on the steering wheel (Avantgarde gets perforated grips), a centre analogue clock and a unique seat pattern.

Other key items inside the C 200 Exclusive include an Audio 20 CD with Touchpad infotainment system, Active Parking Assist, a Rear View Camera and an Interior Lighting Package. Yet still, no keyless entry is available for the C 200 here – only keyless engine start is standard. The Air Balance perfume package that was standard in the higher-range C 250 Exclusive variant has also been given a miss here.

Power is still derived from a Mercedes-Benz 2.0 litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine, which delivers 184 hp and 300 Nm of torque. With performance figures identical to the C 200 Avantgarde, the Exclusive performs the century sprint in 7.3 seconds, and has a top speed of 235 km/h. The engine is mated to a 7G-Tronic seven-speed torque converter automatic transmission.
