Refreshed Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupes swing in, EQ Boost for C 200

By CARSIFU | 2 November 2018

PETALING JAYA: The refreshed coupe variant of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class was introduced today, a day after the facelifted sedan was launched in Malaysia.

Both the C 200 Coupé and C 300 Coupé come in AMG trim and are priced at RM346,888 and RM416,888 respectively.

In this round of changes, the C 200 Coupé is especially interesting. It receive a new generation of four-cylinder engines. With this new enhancement, the C 200 Coupé drops the 2.0-litre powerplant for a 1.5-litre mill that is supplemented by a 48V electric motor for increased output.

Pairing the motor to a traditional engine is what Mercedes-Benz refers to as EQ Boost, which creates the conditions for additional functions that help to reduce fuel consumption even further, while improving agility and occupant comfort.

When accelerating, EQ Boost can add 10kW/13hp to the 135kW/184hp engine, 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.

The sporty design features are heightened with the AMG Line. For example, the 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.

The sporty interior with its autonomous integral-look seats is characterised by further-enhanced perceived quality and flowing shapes and the facelift takes it into the digital era.

The centre console is characterised by an elegant flowing trim element - optionally with new materials: open-pore brown walnut or open-pore anthracite oak. Magma grey/black are available as new interior colours.


The KEYLESS-GO starting function is standard. The start/stop button comes in a new turbine-look design. The vehicle key also gets a new design.

Malaysian customers have a choice of three variants: black with high-gloss chrome surround, white with chrome surround or high-gloss white with matt chrome surround.

Both coupes feature a new display concept, which includes an optional, fully-digital instrument cluster with the three visually distinguishable styles "Classic", "Sport" and "Progressive".

The coupes have touch-sensitive controls in the steering wheel. They respond to swiping motions like the screen of a smartphone. They enable the driver to control the functions of the instrument cluster and of the entire infotainment system without having to take their hands off the steering wheel.

“The new Mercedes-Benz C-Class range is completed with the launch of the C 200 Coupé and C 300 Coupé. With its refined design, superior features and athletic character, the next generation C-Class Coupé is now even more dynamic and progressive, while retaining its high degree of luxury and sophistication,” said Mercedes-Benz Malaysia sales & marketing vice-president (passenger cars) Mark Raine.
