Mercedes-Benz Malaysia today announces the availability of a modified C-Class variant, the Mercedes-Benz C 200 with AMG Line.
“The C-Class has been one of the best sellers in our vehicle range, with more than 20,000 vehicles sold to date, since its introduction in 2014. The localised C-Class itself has been well-accepted by our customers. As part of our continuous commitment to the local market, the premium mid-sized limousine model, the C 200 is upgraded with AMG line together with a host of enhancement including an even more dynamic engine, sports suspension, state-of-the-art digital infotainment system and Mercedes me connect. This model will further cater to the individual requirements of our esteemed customers,” says Michael Jopp, Vice President Sales and Marketing, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia.
Mercedes-Benz C 200 AMG Line is equipped with the new 2.0-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that produces more power with an output of 150 kW (204 hp) and 300 Nm of torque. The C 200 AMG Line accelerates from 0 – 100 km/h in just 7.1 seconds and has an impressive top speed of 250 km/h.
The new C 200 AMG Line comes with a commanding sportiness and exclusive touch. The appearance of the AMG Line exterior underscored the sporty and expressive character with the new diamond radiator grille integrated with the Mercedes star and pins in chrome, the AMG front apron with sporty air intake and chrome trim element and the AMG diffuser-look rear apron with insert in black. New with the C 200 is the 18-inch AMG 5-spoke light-alloy wheels to enhance the sporty appearance.
On the inside, the C 200 AMG Line also comes with the AMG Line interior. The numerous highlights of the AMG Line include the ARTICO leather upholstery, galvanised steering wheel gearshift paddles and AMG sports pedals.
Like its predecessor, safety features in the new C 200 includes the Active Brake Assist, PRE-SAFE and Blind Spot Assist. The Active Brake Assist system contributes towards minimising the danger of a rear-end collision and mitigating the consequences of an accident. The Mercedes-Benz PRE-SAFE system, on the other hand, works to prepare and protect passengers before an accident happens. The system is able to sense when an unavoidable collision is about to happen and prepares the passengers by tightening the front seat belts, adjusting front head restraints and it even closes opened windows.
The Blind Spot Assist works as an electronic look over your shoulder. A red triangle in the side mirror lights up when a vehicle is detected in the blind spot. If the driver fails to notice the red triangle and indicates to change lanes, the system emits a warning signal sound. It is active from a speed of 30km/h and up to the vehicle’s maximum speed.
The new C 200 AMG Line is now equipped with Mercedes me connect, the newest generation of connectivity that helps Mercedes-Benz owners to stay connected and in sync with their vehicles.
The connected car service is made to make the lives of Mercedes-Benz owners easier and at ease, whether it is unlocking their car, starting the engine remotely, getting customer support or simply checking their fuel level.
Other features of the Mercedes me connect includes Mercedes–Benz emergency call system (E-call), remote vehicle diagnostics, pre-entry climate control, predictive navigation, and parked vehicle locator.
To enjoy the services, users are required to register and set up their personal Mercedes me account at https://www.mercedes-benz.com.my/mercedes-me or via the Mercedes me app, available for iOS or Android. Authorized Mercedes-Benz dealers will then pair the Mercedes me account to the vehicle and to further activate the services.
