Mercedes-Benz Malaysia (MBM) launched the W213 E-class back in June. However, during the launch, only the E 200 Avantgarde was available for sale. For those who have been waiting for the E 250 variant, you can now place your booking for either the E 250 Avantgarde or Exclusive.

As we covered during the E 200 Avantgarde launch, MBM will be bringing in the E 250 and E 300 at a later date, although no prices were revealed at the time. Fast forward today, the E 250 E250 Avantgarde Line will cost you RM420,888 (OTR without insurance) while the E250 Exclusive line commands RM5,000 more. Both variants are CBU for the time being.

The E 250 Exclusive wears a more traditional design easily identified by the classic Mercedes-Benz star that sits on the hood. Elsewhere, a 19-inch ten-spoke design rims are equipped on this trim.2016 Mercedes-Benz W213 E 250 Exclusive Line Launched in Malaysia
