The enhanced Cycle & Carriage Johor Bahru comes with the new Mercedes-Benz Brand Presence. The Autohaus is meticulously developed with state-of-the-art technology and presents a contemporary retail experience that addresses the customer’s individual needs.

The E 200 Avantgarde facelift brings some notable design changes, including a new front grille that is slimmer than before and is styled differently depending on the trim package. On the Avantgarde variant, the grille is hexagonal and features two chrome slats running across a black lattice.

There are two 12.3-inch displays for the digital instrument cluster and the touchscreen infotainment, which are both parts of the facelift feature. The car is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder unit and features the M264 engine. The E 200 Avantgarde serves up 197 PS (194 horsepower) and 320 Nm of torque.
