Amidst the sales shattering records, MBM also announced that they will be enriching the C-Class’ portfolio in our country. The C200 Exclusive will now be available next to the C250 Exclusive while the C250 AMG will soon be introduced to our country as well. All these will join the existing C200 Avantgarde.
 
So who said that the economy is not doing well? MBM definitely has proof that it’s not.
