The nip and tuck involves a redesigned work on the front of the car with new headlamp and rear lamp cluster designs. Both ends features LED lighting which visually enhances the shape of the two-door coupé.
The sporty AMG Line exterior includes the diamond radiator grille with pins in chrome plus an AMG-specific front apron with new geometry, sporty air intakes and its chromed trim element.
Like in the sedan, the C 200 Coupé gets a new 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine, while the C 300 retains the 2.0-litre engine. The variant is also equipped with the EQ Boost 48-volt on-board network with a belt-driven alternator. When accelerating, EQ Boost can assist the 135 kW (184 hp) engine with an additional 10 kW (13 hp), bridging the brief moment until the turbocharger has built up its full charge pressure. During deceleration, the starter/alternator recuperates kinetic energy and charges the battery.
Inside, the new generation C-Class features high-quality materials and the excellent integration of functional elements with a 12.3-inch digital cockpit – a cutting-edge screen design that offers three different display styles; “Classic”, “Sport” and “Progressive”.
Also new is the high-resolution 10.25-inch media display can be operated with two touch control buttons on the sporty steering wheel.
The touch-sensitive control also responds to swiping motions just like the screen of a smartphone. It enables the driver to control the functions of the instrument cluster and the entire infotainment system without having to take their hands off the steering wheel.

Both cars can be financed with the Flex-C financing which starts from RM2,688. All Flex-C financing contract comes with a complimentary 1st year Tyre and Rim Insurance.
