If you’re in the market for a midsize executive saloon from Mercedes-Benz, you must know that the Auto Nation Group (the local distributor of Mercedes-Benz) has been offering the E-Class only under the guise of the sporty AMG Line.

While still a very luxurious offering, not everyone would want the aggressive appearance, hence the introduction of the classier Avantgarde Line.

To differentiate it from its sportier twin, the Avantgarde Line wears a classier, twin louvre grille with chrome and gloss black accents. You’ll see more of these elements appear in the front bumper, and there are high-performance LED headlamps and 19-inch 10-spoke light-alloy wheels fitted as standard on the outside.

The interior is just as classy as the outside, where dual 12.3-inch displays with the latest MBUX system greet you as you sink into the seats that are upholstered in full Artico leather. Other equipment includes power closing doors, automatic climate control, electronic seats with lumbar supports, and 64-color ambient lighting.

Plus, you have the automaker’s safety suite to keep you and your car safe and sound, like the Pre-Safe system, the attention assist, the active brake assist, the Urban Guard vehicle protection, and the Active Parking assist.

The E200 Avantgarde line will cost you P5.29 million, while its sportier sibling, the E200 AMG Line, is P100,000 more at P5.39 million. You can now order the Avantgarde Line at any of the Mercedes-Benz dealerships located at Greenhills, Bonifacio Global City, Alabang, and Cebu City, or visit the automaker’s online showroom.
