The four-pronged line-up of the W213 E-Class promised by Mercedes-Benz Malaysia last June has come to completion with the fully-imported E300 AMG Line officially launched today, joining the existing E200 Avantgarde, E250 Avantgarde, and E250 Exclusive variants.

At present, the W213 E-Class comes completely built-up (CBU) from Sindelfingen, Germany, but local-assembly is expected to come sometime this year.
