Unmistakably Mercedes Benz, the front of the E 300 AMG Line Coupé stands out with its distinctive appearance decorated with low mounted diamond radiator grille. Translating for an enhanced dynamism, it boasts an elongated bonnet, contemporary rim design of 19-inch AMG 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels and refreshing LED headlamps. The rear end is more expressive than ever with the split tail lights.
Inside, the aesthetic flair is pronounced with elegant lines and sporty seats, all composed of premium materials that you would expect from the German carmaker, spotlighting the athletic character of the new E-class Coupé. The roadster is fitted with an entirely new, intelligent steering wheel, sporting high-gloss black finish, while the trim elements and surrounds are given with a unique silver shadow finish. It also retracts its four power windows to reveal the open beauty and hidden strength of its engineering, making it a Coupé on its own terms.
Powered by a breathtaking 2.0L 4-cylinder petrol engine, it generates an output of 190kW (258 hp), 370 Nm of torque, simply sprinting from 0 to 100km/h in 6.4 seconds. The vehicle is without a doubt a triple threat, thanks to its mixed bag of comfort and stability-guaranteed features the likes of Dynamic Select, 9G-Tronic Transmission and agility control suspension.
With the car, you will not only get thrilled with its machinery pyrotechnics, but also the satisfaction gained from the exquisite frills that make you willing to splash out. You enjoy a panoramic sliding sunroof that let you bathe in the balmy sunlight, ambient lighting with 64 colours and three-zones to create an unforgettable moment with your lover or family and the tasteful Burmester surround sound system. The new Mercedes-Benz creation is also equipped with the latest edition MBUX Multimedia System (NTG 6) including dual 12.3-inch displays that ensure information is at your fingertips.
Of course, a premium car comes with a premium price. You get to own the car at the price of over RM490,000 (on the road without insurance), which is effective until the 31st of December 2021, as per the current new vehicle sales tax exemption by the government.
