W213 Mercedes-Benz E 200 SportStyle Avantgarde

Alongside the W213 Mercedes-Benz E 350 AMG Line, the E 200 SportStyle Avantgarde and E 300 Exclusive Line also join the updated E-Class range. Price-wise, the E 200 goes for RM329,888, while the E 300 (takes over from the previous E 250 Exclusive Line) retails at RM379,888.

Like the E 350, the E 200 and E 300 both get the new M264 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine in place of the previous M274 unit. However, both variants make do without the EQ Boost mild hybrid system found on the E 350.

On the E 200, the mill (now with twin-scroll turbos) makes 197 hp at 5,500 rpm and 320 Nm of torque from 1,650-4,000 rpm (up from the M274’s 181 hp and 300 Nm), and is good for a zero to 100 km/h time of 7.5 seconds (240 km/h top speed). Meanwhile, the E 300 has 258 hp at 5,800 rpm and 370 Nm from 1,800-4,000 rpm at its disposal (up from 245 hp), although the centennial sprint time is the same as before at 6.2 seconds (250 km/h top speed).

Both the E 200 and E 300 come with Agility Control suspension as standard, along with Dynamic Select to adjust the characteristics of the cars’ steering and powertrain in line with the selected drive mode.
