Mercedes-Benz C 200 Coupé AMG Line Updated in Malaysia
Mercedes-Benz Malaysia have updated the C 200 Coupé facelift model with a brand new engine under its hood and some new equipment as well.

For the rest of 2020, it’s priced at RM336,129.38 where the previous model costed RM346,888 upon launch.
The new C 200 has a 2-litre turbocharged engine to replace the 1.5-litre EQ Boost powertrain.

Despite lacking EQ Boost assist on the new 2.0-litre engine, the updated C 200 Coupé has better acceleration and a higher top speed. It’s able to go from 0-100km/h in just 7.2 seconds (vs 7.9 seconds previously) and tops out at 245km/h versus 239km/h before.
Besides the new engine, the updated C 200 Coupé also comes with Mercedes me connect, which connects the vehicle to the internet and the owner’s smartphone. Using the mercedes me app on Android or on iOS, owners can have some remote connectivity to their new C 200 Coupé. They’ll be able to do things like unlock their car, start the engine, check their fuel level. Other features include an emergency call system (E-call), remote vehicle diagnostics, pre-entry climate control, predictive navigation, and parked vehicle locator.
