Mercedes-Benz Malaysia has been stepping up their game lately with having almost all of their models spec’d out with AMG goodies. Now, Mercedes has expanded its line-up with the introduction of a new coupé in the form of an E 300 AMG Line. The new coupé heads into the market right after the recent introduction of the new facelifted E-Class. The coupé represents the brand’s innovative tradition, elevated with a new iconic look and intuitive new technology.
Embodiment of Luxury and Performance.
“This is a car that is sure to stir emotions. With its luxury appeal that is unique to the Mercedes-Benz brand and its new enhancements, the E 300 AMG Line Coupé not only offers customers an exhilarating and spirited drive but also sportier styling, which exudes character. We are confident that this new dream car by Mercedes-Benz will exceed expectations and will continue to be a top choice for motoring enthusiasts.” said Sagree Sardien, President & CEO, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia.
Similar to the facelifted sedan, Mercedes has retained the M264 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine for the coupé. The E 300 AMG Line Coupé gets 258hp and 370Nm of torque from the power unit. Similarly found in the sedan is the nine-speed 9G-Tronic automatic transmission which is also equipped with Dynamic Drive Mode and Agility Control suspension system.
