SLK 250 CDI: with Powerdiesel

The introduction of the new SLK 250 CDI by not only marks the continuation of the unique diesel engine but also serves to counter in style the common misconception diesel engines and sports are incompatible. The four-cylinder diesel in the Roadster delivers 150 kW (204 hp) a displacement of just 2.2 litres to the two-seater its characteristic sporty The sprint from zero to 100 takes just 6.7 seconds true sports car performance. from all this, the SLK 250 CDI is the most and therefore the most environmentally roadster in its segment. It is happy 4.9 litres of diesel fuel per 100 (NEDC combined consumption).With the engine in the SLK Mercedes-Benz has taken the step in a successful strategy began in 1936 with the 260 D — the world’s very diesel car. The world’s motor manufacturer has continued to these robust and economical ever since and, as far as the mid-1970s, was able to demonstrate hitherto undiscovered qualities as units in record-breaking drives the legendary C111-II D and the C111-III. The new SLK 250 CDI is the logical successor to these forbears.

A certain sluggishness has been as an intrinsic characteristic of the diesel ever since Mercedes-Benz one in the world’s first diesel car in 1936. So wrong. Some 40 later, engineers working for the manufacturer began to look closely at the performance potential of the compression-ignition engine — and discovered what they looking for. They a turbocharger to the standard 80 hp five-cylinder found in the 240 D 3.0 and 300 D models to elicit an 190 hp from the 3-litre diesel.

this powerful diesel under the bonnet of a spectacularly gull-wing model, painted in orange, Mercedes-Benz was soon up for some record-breaking drives. The C D powered its way to some sensational at the Nardo circuit in southern in 1976. For a whole hour, for it circled the high-speed track at speed of 253.770 km/h. It on to collect further records in all — over distances of 10 to kilometres and over periods of 6 to 24

No one had previously thought a diesel capable of such performance.

In 1978, the even more designed C 111-III consigned records to the scrapheap of history, what was by that stage a 230 hp engine with exhaust gas and charge air cooling. It set a new record one hour with an average of around 320 km/h, while the over the other record also never fell 314 km/h. No other diesel had ever even come to such speeds. With impressive records under its the C 111-III was able, once and for to prove the reliability and efficiency of the engine.

While these drives were going on, of the production version of the turbodiesel apace. These efforts led in to the market launch of the 300 SD, the world’s diesel car with exhaust gas

In 1997 Mercedes-Benz ushered in a new era in technology with the C 220 CDI. was the first production passenger car to a diesel engine with direct injection. This new gave the car a significantly higher and extra torque, while setting new standards in the disciplines of consumption and pollutant emissions.

That Mercedes-Benz should now for the time be offering the sporty SLK with a diesel engine is the next stage in these Its four-cylinder diesel engine, a displacement of 2143 cc, delivers 150 kW hp) with available torque of 500 metres — as much as a model with more twice this displacement normally offer. The new SLK 250 CDIfeatures the powerful diesel powerplant in class, with a thrust propels the Roadster to a very level of performance.

Equipped the standard 7G-TRONIC PLUS transmission (a six-speed manual will follow in the second of next year), the diesel SLK can the sprint from zero to in 6.7 seconds and achieve a top speed of 243 Moreover, the flexibility of the SLK 250 CDI is nothing of phenomenal. Thanks to its enormous torque it accelerates from 80 to 120 in just 4.3 seconds — the best figure in this making for safe and effortless

Apart from all this, the SLK 250 CDI is the economical and therefore the most compatible roadster in its segment. It is with 4.9 litres of diesel per 100 kilometres (NEDC combined which corresponds to CO2 emissions of 128 In other words, the diesel SLK thoroughbred sports car performance the fuel economy of a sub-compact. guarantees effortlessly superior pleasure with great efficiency.

The diesel engine its exemplary output, torque, consumption and emissions figures, as as its highly impressive smoothness for a unit, thanks to a series of technologies. These include common-rail injection with injection timing, as well as turbocharging. Like all SLK models, the SLK 250 CDI is as standard with an ECO start/stop

The frugal fuel consumption the SLK 250 CDI a car with superior long-distance Using the European motorways, it is possible to drive non-stop the North Sea all the way to a beach on the Mediterranean. comfortable sports seats, a suspension setup and the largest capacity in this segment do their bit to create the right

As it shares the same genes the other members of the successful SLK the SLK 250 CDI combines lightfooted sportiness stylish comfort, a striking car design and absolute suitability for use, while also top performance with exemplary This means that the version, too, provides driving enjoyment at an extraordinarily level.

Likewise, the SLK 250 CDI too is available a choice of three versions of the vario-roof — one of them the vario-roof with MAGIC SKY This glass roof can be from light to dark at the of a button. There are also suspension variants: a conventional suspension, a sports suspension a stiffer spring and damper and a suspension with an electronically fully automatic damping

Externally the new SLK 250 CDI is no different in appearance the petrol models. It even the twin exhaust system, and has the same stunning looks for all the SLK models are known.

The SLK 250 CDI demonstrates how much Mercedes-Benz has achieved the diesel engine. A comparison of the very first diesel the Mercedes-Benz 260 D of 1936, with the new Roadster, reveals some developments. The 260 D needed 0.3 litres of per kilowatt per 100 kilometres, whereas the SLK 250 CDI a mere 0.03 litres a bare tenth of the amount. We see the picture in terms of the power-to-swept-volume the forefather of all diesel cars, the 260 D, 17.7 hp from one litre of while its family’s latest the SLK 250 CDI, produces 95.1 hp more than five the figure. The SLK 250 CDI thus shows the diesel engine still remarkable potential for the future.
