The Mercedes-Benz W213 E-Class has done it again, bagging two more prestigious awards – ‘Best Executive Car’ and ‘New Company Car of the Year’ titles after being named as UK Car of the Year 2017.
Judges praised the E-Class for its low running costs, stylish design and impressive refinement. It’s also indisputably one of the most advanced, if not the most advanced car in its class thanks to a lengthy list of driving assistance systems.
Back at home, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia is offering the E-Class in four trims:
|Name||Mercedes-Benz E 200 Avantgarde||Mercedes-Benz E 250 Avantgarde||Mercedes-Benz E 250 Exclusive||Mercedes-Benz E 300 AMG|
|Engine||1,991cc; in-line 4-cylinder turbocharged|
|Transmission||9G-TRONIC, 9-speed automatic|
|Max Power||184 hp @ 5,500 rpm||211 hp @ 5,500 rpm||245 hp @ 5,500 rpm|
|Max Torque||300 Nm @ 1,200 – 4,000 rpm||350 Nm @ 1,200 – 4,000 rpm||370 Nm @ 1,200 – 4,000 rpm|
|0 – 100 km/h; Top speed||7.7 seconds; 240 km/h||6.9 seconds; 250 km/h||6.2 seconds; 250 km/h|
|Price (OTR without insurance)||RM395,888||RM420,888||RM425,888||RM458,888|
The company also plans to introduce no less than 17 new models to the market this year, presumably with the E 63 S among the mix. Will we continue to be deprived of the Mercedes-Benz Estates, or will we finally get the E-Class Estate to rival the upcoming Volvo V90?
