Today, CCB continues to be a minority shareholder of Mercedes-Benz Malaysia (MBM) and the company remains synonymous among with the Mercedes brand among Malaysians.
“Our history and legacy is intertwined with the Mercedes-Benz brand. We remain ever committed to the growth of the brand and next week we will be introducing our newly-renovated Autohaus in Georgetown,” said CCB Chief Executive Officer, Dato’ Wong Kin Foo.

According to Dato’ Wong, firm plans are afoot for further expansion of CCB’s network, starting with the relocation of its existing Jalan Tun Razak showroom to TREC KL followed by the opening of its 12th Autohaus in Cheras by the middle of this year. Additionally, a sum of RM30 million has been allocated over the next two years to upgrade the company’s dealerships in Alor Setar, Bukit Tengah, Juru, Ipoh, Mutiara Damansara, and Johor Bahru.
The newly refurbished PJ Autohaus serves as the template for these to-be-upgraded facilities. Spread across 150,210 sq ft, CCB PJ has enough floor space for 21 display vehicles and work bays to service 40 Mercedes-Benz vehicles at one go. The outlet is staffed by 36 retail personnel and 79 people working in after sales.
Upgraded facilities in the showroom as part of the new Mercedes-Benz CI include i-Showroom digital touchscreens and the new Mercedes-Benz Presentation System II (MPS II) for convenient and informative product browsing by customers. It also features the first of its kind AMG Performance Centre located at its first floor.
