Long version


The name says it all: the X-CLUSIVE special model

The and data contained in this kit apply to the international model of Mercedes-Benz. Specifications may vary country to country .

Mercedes-Benz at the Geneva Motor Show

New covering eight model Mercedes-Benz cuts fuel and exhaust emissions by up to 12 per cent

– Mercedes-Benz is continuing its commitment to reductions in fuel consumption and emissions with new products in model series which take centre stage at year’s Geneva Motor The Vision GLK BLUETEC HYBRID further substance to the Stuttgart-based manufacturer’s claim of developing the most efficient and cleanest-running car engines. Equipped with a diesel-hybrid system, the study of the forthcoming Mercedes off-roader with NEDC fuel figures of a mere 5.9 litres per 100 and complies with even the emissions regulations courtesy of the efficient BLUETEC treatment The new BlueEFFICIENCY C-Class saloons as as the coupé and roadster models distinguish themselves by burning as as 12 per cent less fuel their predecessors, whilst promising supreme safety, and refinement.

The Vision GLK BLUETEC gives a further foretaste of the new from Mercedes-Benz, whilst a fresh demonstration of the ingenious emission control technology’s efficiency. The four-cylinder diesel fitted in the study combines a hybrid module to deliver a output of 165 kW/224 hp and 560 Newton of torque. The NEDC fuel of the Vision GLK BLUETEC HYBRID even more impressive a mere 5.9 litres for every 100 This enables the Mercedes to achieve a lower CO2 emission than any other model in the SUV segment in the world: just 157 per kilometre. As a result of the highly BLUETEC emission control AdBlue injection, the GLK BLUETEC is able to comply with the toughest exhaust emissions such as BIN5 in the US and EURO 6.

In the drive train of the Mercedes a completely new four-cylinder CDI diesel with a displacement of 2.2 litres as the internal combustion engine. The highlights of this extremely and refined CDI unit with a camshaft drive mounted on the side include latest-generation direct injection with an pressure of 2000 bar and innovative injectors, as well as a two-stage system. The compact hybrid – a disc-shaped electric motor the CDI engine and the automatic transmission – both the environmental compatibility and the of the drive system.

The electric acts as both a generator and and offer a two-pronged advantage: it contributes decisively to fuel and secondly it significantly enhances pleasure by virtue of the boost The electric motor backs up the combustion engine during the acceleration phase by contributing its torque of 160 Newton metres. As a the occupants experience an effortless of power right from the

In addition the system features a start-stop function which the engine off in certain circumstances – for when the car is stopped at traffic When it comes to braking, the are reversed: the electric motor now as a generator, feeding the electrical obtained from the recuperation into an efficient yet compact battery. This energy can be when needed – for the next phase, for example. All these take place fully thanks to intelligent drive

With the VISION GLK BLUETEC a distinctive character is entering the SUV whose special appeal in a combination of the angular original of the legendary G-Class and the typical features of today’s Mercedes-Benz cars. Crisp lines and taut body surfaces together with the bodyshell of practical off-roaders, such as overhangs, an upright front slim A-pillars, a steep and tight roof contours. An view of the vehicle body and all-round visibility go together the raised seating position to day-to-day suitability and ensure driving.

The Vision GLK BLUETEC demonstrates how outstanding performance be paired with highly fuel consumption in the future – a that need not be confined to the GLK-Class.

BlueEFFICIENCY C-Class that consume twelve per less fuel

Mercedes-Benz has a BlueEFFICIENCY package for the four-cylinder C 180 and C 200 CDI models which lowers consumption in the two saloons by as much as per cent, while retaining the levels of comfort and safety Mercedes is renowned for. of the previous 6.1 litres of diesel, the version of the 100-kW/136-hp C 200 CDI now makes do just 5.1 litres for every 100 This equates to 135 grams of dioxide per kilometre. In the case of the C 180 Mercedes-Benz has reduced the engine’s from

1796 to 1597 centimetres, but output (115 hp) and torque (230 Newton remain unchanged. It returns consumption figures of 6.5 litres per 100 a whole 0.9 litres or twelve per below the figure for the standard model.

For the new BlueEFFICIENCY models, engineers have harnessed from all fields of development to weight, aerodynamic drag and resistance yet further, and to organise the energy management of these even more efficiently. The BlueEFFICIENCY package includes a developed lightweight front amongst its many features. In to lightweight construction measures, also devoted particular to reducing rolling resistance and drag.

The specialists at Mercedes have honed the excellent aerodynamics of the with a series of intelligent resulting in an exemplary Cd figure of in the BlueEFFICIENCY models. This an improvement of seven per cent on the for the standard production models. control of ancillary units and the of friction losses also an important contribution to reducing consumption. In the BlueEFFICIENCY models of the the power steering system is on a needs-driven and therefore energy-saving The engine must therefore less energy for driving the pump.

A newly developed display in the cockpit informs the when he should change to save fuel. In addition to recommendations, the instrument cluster a newly developed display the present fuel consumption.

C 350 CGI with direct petrol

Mercedes-Benz Also is also be the new C 350 BlueEFFICIENCY with spray-guided injection at the Geneva Motor This technology has previously exclusive to just the CLS-Class and the but is due to become available for the C-Class too late 2008. Despite a higher power output and greater torque, the new C 350 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY around ten per cent less than the C 350 saloon with the V6 engine. This innovative new is therefore set to offer a hitherto combination of power delivery, safety, economy and environmental in this vehicle class.

The CGI summons up an output of 215 kW/292 hp and 365 metres of peak torque at rpm, 15 kW/20 hp and 15 Newton more respectively than the V6 unit with port Thanks to the state-of-the-art engine fuel consumption of the C 350 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY has cut to approx. 8.7 litres per 100 kilometres NEDC figure), one litre the figure for the current C 350. As the new six-cylinder engine makes a contribution to reducing carbon emissions. These significantly output and fuel consumption are achieved whilst still cost-efficient premium grade (RON 95).

Mercedes-Benz the first car maker to put spray-guided petrol injection into production in 2006. This is markedly superior to the direct system with wall-guided used by other car makers, as the technology achieves far better utilisation due to its higher thermodynamic meaning both reduced consumption and lower exhaust

The new-generation SL-Class: sportier ever before

The new Mercedes machines celebrating their premiere in Geneva are spearheaded by the Mercedes-Benz has refined, improved and the roadster further to a level of and extent that goes beyond a mere model The result is a car that combines safety and comfort into an synthesis in this vehicle offering Mercedes motoring at sports car level.

The new, sporty and assured exterior reflects the handling characteristics of Mercedes roadster which, to a new direct-steer system, now boasts yet agility while offering more safety and comfort Two new six-cylinder engines will off the SL range from spring the SL 280 develops 170 kW/ 231 hp and gets the SL sports car off to a highly attractive start. The SL 350 is by a newly developed and particularly sports engine. Output has by 16 per cent to 232 kW/316 hp compared to the 3.5-litre engine, while torque has improved by 10 Nm to 360 Newton This powerpack accelerates the new SL 350 standstill to 100 km/h in just 6.2 making it 0.4 seconds faster the outgoing SL 350. In this car, however, a higher does not bring higher consumption with it: at 9.9 litres per 100 the SL 350 is 0.4 litres more economical the preceding 200-kW/272-hp model on the driving cycle.

The flagship in the SL range continue to be the SL 500 with a V8 and the twelve-cylinder SL 600. Their consume up to 0.4 litres less per 100 kilometres than before.

The SL its substantial lead in the field of with bi-xenon headlamps and the Intelligent Light System, lighting functions are purpose-designed for driving situations. One new feature is the AIRSCARF neck-level heating invented and patented by Mercedes-Benz. optionally available system comfort when driving the roof down, extending the season until well the colder part of the year.

The design of the SL-Class shows Mercedes-Benz has reinforced the sporty of the roadster even further. The is a wide and therefore very radiator grille, whose shape symbolises virtues as its go-getting performance potential. A fin adds visual width to the grille and thereby emphasises the appearance of the SL’s front which consequently seems new yet, at the same time, familiar.

CLS: new six-cylinder and fine-tuning down to the last

The unique, four-door CLS Coupé – pioneered a new automotive segment – has been made more than ever by careful The front aspect is dominated by a radiator grille, which now has two than the previous four The exterior mirrors also a new shape, with integrated, LED indicator repeaters and a mirror which is over 30 per cent The tail lights also now LED technology, with the brake tail lamps and indicator all using the extra-fast-reacting light-emitting

Great attention to detail was while updating the interior modifications include a restyled steering wheel in a three-spoke with multifunction buttons, as as a new-look instrument cluster, white dials now contrast with the chased surface of the New chestnut wood inserts the previous trim.

Like the SL, SLK and CLC, the CLS also from new-generation infotainment These high-performance units ease of operation and intuitive with perfect in-vehicle Features include speed-sensitive control, an MP3-compatible CD and DVD player, as as a Bluetooth interface which can a wireless connection between a phone and the vehicle’s hands-free Audio 20, Audio 20 CD with CD Audio 50 and Audio 50 APS with DVD and the LINGUATRONIC voice-control system now a 5-inch colour monitor. The APS comes with a high-resolution colour display, LINGUATRONIC for navigation and telephone calls, a register for storing audio plus an SD memory card

As the new entry-level model, Mercedes-Benz the CLS 280 with an up‑to‑date 2996 cc V6 developing a maximum output of 170 hp and a peak torque of 300 Newton Combined fuel consumption on the driving cycle is 9.8 — litres per 100 kilometres. The second V6 model in the range is the CLS 350 CGI. Its six-cylinder engine with direct injection and a spray-guided system musters 215 kW/292 hp and has an low NEDC fuel consumption of 9.1 to 9.3 per 100 kilometres.

Under the bonnet of the CLS 500 is a V8 unit with a displacement of 5.5 and a maximum output of 285 kW/388 hp. The CLS 320 CDI its 165-kW/224-hp V6 diesel engine above all with its high of 540 Newton metres accompanied by a low fuel consumption of 7.6 to 8.1 litres per 100 All CLS models are equipped with the seven-speed automatic transmission as

CLC: new Sports Coupé CDI engines in the five-litre consumption

Mercedes-Benz is unveiling a stand-alone series at the Geneva Motor in the guise of the new CLC, the compelling model in the Stuttgart-based brand’s family. The compact body and powerful proportions underline the appearance of the new CLC. With its coupé radiator grille, has a large Mercedes star at its as well as the new projection-beam headlamps, the Coupé stays true to the Mercedes design idiom. The boot lid conceals a variable compartment with a capacity of up to litres. The tail lights, the row of LEDs forming the third light and the rear bumper the rear end and accentuate its width.

The of the new Mercedes-Benz CLC is akin to a modern suit, having a precise and fit. Sports seats further improved lateral a three-spoke multifunction steering automatic climate control and aluminium trim all come as

The new CLC is available with a choice of four-cylinder and two six-cylinder engines outputs from 90 kW/122 hp to 200 hp. Thanks to its up-to-date turbodiesel the Sports Coupé ranks in the fuel consumption category: the CLC 200 CDI itself to 5.8 to 6.1 litres per 100 kilometres i.e. up to 10.8 per cent than the preceding model. The CDI are capable of covering over kilometres with just one of fuel. The 135-kW/184-hp power in the CLC 200 KOMPRESSOR now has 15 kW/20 hp more and consumes only 7.8 to 8.2 litres per 100 on the NEDC driving cycle – up to 0.7 less than before.

CL: all-wheel drive with no penalty

The Mercedes Coupé continues to be headed by the luxurious which offers the widest range in this vehicle with the CL 500, CL 600, CL 63 AMG and CL 65 In addition, the new CL 500 4MATIC with all-wheel drive will be the line-up from summer This two-door model is with a 285 kW/388 hp V8 engine, and in to 4MATIC it features innovations as the Intelligent Light System and the occupant protection system ® as standard.

Mercedes-Benz has further all aspects of its all-wheel drive and uses the latest-generation system in the CL 500 – the same one that has already so successful in the S-Class. 4MATIC is active and therefore requires no time to come to the driver’s aid in weather and driving conditions. As a critical situations can be mastered greater ease.

With a of just 70 kilograms, the newly-developed is the lightest drive system of its The combined NEDC fuel of the CL 500 4MATIC is 12.1 litres per 100 which puts it on a par with the drive CL 500 – a further bonus of the highly efficient Mercedes drive system. The CL 500 4MATIC just 5.4 seconds to accelerate zero to 100 km/h, and reaches an limited top speed of 250 km/h.

even more driving with considerably lower consumption

Following a comprehensive facelift, the Mercedes-Benz SLK is now yet more and provides an even more driving experience. The most visual changes include a front and rear end, as as a carefully modified interior a new instrument cluster and three-spoke steering wheel. The V6 sports from the SL-Class is also in the new SLK 350, where it develops an of 224 kW/305 hp at 6500 rpm – 24 kW/33 hp than the six-cylinder unit in the SLK 350. The peak torque has been boosted, by 10 Nm, and now stands at 360 Nm the engine is running at 4900 Despite this higher and excellent performance figures, the consumption of the SLK 350 has been significantly Its combined fuel consumption the six-speed manual transmission is now 9.5 litres per 100 kilometres, which a remarkable reduction of 1.1 litres for 100 kilometres.

In addition to the SLK 350, the four-cylinder SLK 200 KOMPRESSOR and the six-cylinder SLK 280 continue to part of this compact roadster range: the output of the four-cylinder engine has increased by 15 hp to 135 kW/184 hp, while fuel has been lowered by one litre to 7.7 per 100 kilometres. The NEDC fuel of the SLK 280 (170 kW/231 hp) has been by 0.4 litres to 9.3 litres per 100 kilometres. The SLK 55 AMG to be powered by the familiar 5.5-litre V8 developing 265 kW/360 hp.

The designers honed the looks of the cult for added sportiness. Eye-catching include the new-look front with a modified air-dam and a more pronounced arrow The tail end has also been by the design team, with the styling at the bottom giving the an even more powerful from the rear too. exhaust tailpipes and dark-tinted lights do even more to this impression. The exterior now have LED indicator repeaters a pronounced arrow shape, and have a larger mirror

The name says it all: the X-CLUSIVE special model

The spacious feel of an MPV coupled the exclusive appointments of a luxury and the technical and visual attributes of a car – the new Viano X-CLUSIVE conjures up exceptional combination. The interior passengers with an extremely standard of comfort.

off-roader study with drive technology

The grand at the beginning of this year made heads turn, the striking Vision GLK entered the SUV and was celebrated as a compact character marking a new design approach in vehicle class. At the 2008 Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz is a step further and adding the GLK BLUETEC HYBRID to the line-up. study illustrates the possibilities of the strategy in the compact SUV segment, to the guiding Mercedes-Benz theme of the world’s most efficient and drive systems. The Vision GLK HYBRID achieved this by combining the new BLUETEC four-cylinder engine generation with a module. This combination an overall output of 165 kW/224 hp, and a of 560 Nm. Superior performance can be taken as in view of these figures. And yet the GLK BLUETEC HYBRID returns a consumption of only 5.9 l per 100 km.

With its strategy, Mercedes-Benz is preparing the way for the of the world’s most economical and vehicles. As in the case of the VISION GLK HYBRID, ultra-modern and efficient engines with innovative emissions control, hybrid and intelligent energy management are the centrepieces of this trailblazing of drive systems. The study for compact characterful SUV, market launch is scheduled for 2008, has a combined output of 165 hp and generates a combined torque of 560 metres, the world’s highest in class. This enables the GLK BLUETEC HYBRID to accelerate zero to 100 km/h in 7.3 seconds; its speed is 215 km/h. Despite performance figures, this newcomer consumes an average of 5.9 litres of diesel per 100 kilometres, and the world’s lowest CO 2 emissions in the SUV with 157 grams per kilometre.

In with highly efficient emissions control and AdBlue the GLK BLUETEC HYBRID meets the most stringent exhaust limits, such as the American and the European EU6 standards.

With the driving pleasure, outstanding and effective environmental friendliness is typical of our brand, the VISION GLK HYBRID ideally represents our on future model generations in the of SUVs, says Dr Thomas Member of the Board of Management for Corporate Research and Mercedes-Benz Development.

Mixed double: BLUETEC engine and hybrid

In the hybrid drive train, a new four-cylinder CDI diesel unit a displacement of 2.2 litres acts as the combustion engine. In terms of emissions technology, thanks to the BLUETEC technology with injection, this diesel is already among the world’s cleanest power units. The highlights of this extremely and refined CDI unit with a camshaft drive mounted on the side include fourth-generation direct injection with an pressure of 2000 bar, piezoelectric injectors and a two-stage system. The compact hybrid – a disc-shaped electric motor the CDI engine and the automatic transmission – both the environmental compatibility and the of the drive system. The electric acts as both a generator and and performs convincingly in two important firstly it contributes decisively to economy, and secondly it significantly driving pleasure by virtue of the boost effect.

The electric motor backs up the combustion engine during the acceleration phase by contributing its torque of 160 Newton metres. As a the occupants experience an effortless of power right from the In addition the system features a start-stop function which the engine off in certain circumstances – for when the car is stopped at traffic

The driver only needs to the accelerator in order to set off again. As the starts within milliseconds, the GLK moves off with no delay. direct starting also to minimise emissions and fuel

When it comes to braking, the are reversed:the electric motor as a generator, feeding the electrical obtained by what is known as the process into an efficient yet lithium-ion battery. This can be retrieved when needed – for the boost phase, for example. All processes take place automatically, thanks to intelligent management.

Striking body counters stylistic uniformity

the VISION GLK BLUETEC HYBRID, a character is entering the SUV stage special appeal lies in a of the angular original design of the G-Class and the typical design of today’s Mercedes-Benz passenger Crisp lines and large body surfaces come with the bodyshell characteristics of off-roaders, such as short an upright front end, A-pillars, a steep windscreen and roof contours.For the first this body design typical off-roader advantages to be to the more road-oriented, compact SUV An excellent view of the vehicle and good all-round visibility go with the raised seating to enhance day-to-day suitability and relaxed driving even in city traffic. The appealing concept is reinforced by the special blue paint finish, incomparable depth further the sporty aspects of the bodyshell Specially produced 20-inch wheels and muscular wheel enhance the powerful aura of the GLK BLUETEC HYBRID even

Interior: high-end atmosphere good ergonomics

The comfortable, interior of the Vision GLK BLUETEC excels with a modern of surface styling, an impressive of materials and precise finishing.The feature is the dashboard, which extends into the door lending additional width to the dimensioned interior. An elegant, section in brushed aluminium covers the entire width and the layout into three levels. The upper section of the is lined in black leather, the instrument cluster and the fixed APS central display. The lower of the interior and the seats accentuate the nature of the study with upholstery and linings in a light of aquamarine, which echoes the effects of the alubeam blue paintwork. Dark-blue piped provide a visually effective The driver’s armrest and the COMAND APS are located in ergonomically ideal

The occupants are protected by a comprehensive concept based on an extremely passenger cell and energy-absorbing zones at the front and rear. In to airbags, sidebags and windowbags, the features include a driver and active head restraints.

GLK appointments at luxury class

This compact concept car has features and appointments which are the preserve of higher vehicle addition to the anticipatory safety PRE-SAFE and the Intelligent Light (ILS), these include the centre COMAND APS with HDD whose controls follow the intuitive operating logic from the S-Class, as well as 3-zone automatic climate The extremely stable bodyshell the basic parameters by which is defined to a level which is in the compact SUV segment:

Both stability and vibration/noise comfort are impressive under all conditions.

CONTROL: safety plus handling and comfort

The AGILITY suspension of the on-road Vision GLK HYBRID substantially reconciles the aims of sporty and agile on the one hand and comfortable, smooth on the other. Thanks to amplitude-dependent the suspension delivers a soft during normal travel on contoured roads or unmetalled is maintained even when more briskly or during manoeuvres, as the dampers work in this situation to ensure handling stability. At the same the driver of the Vision GLK BLUETEC is assisted by a speed-sensitive steering Parking and low-speed manoeuvring are much easier because servo assistance is made higher speeds this assistance is reduced in the interests of handling stability.

Latest to the premium SUV segment

Mercedes-Benz has the leading position in the off-road since the introduction of the legendary in 1979. With the first-generation which was launched in 1997, defined the Sports Utility in its modern interpretation. Together the current model, which its premiere in 2005, sales of model series are rapidly the one million mark, making it one of the most successful premium Since 2006 another SUV Mercedes-Benz has occupied the pole in the SUV world – the GL-Class, whose enjoy first-class travel in all whether on or off-road. The Vision GLK HYBRID now demonstrates how outstanding could be paired with fuel consumption in the future.What is this combination need not be to the new GLK-Class, which will the market in autumn 2008.

Improved aerodynamics, lightweight tyres and drive technology

in the C-Class

Fuel consumption by 12 per cent

Lightweight design reduce weight by up to 32 kilograms

Mercedes-Benz Viano-Class

New with lower rolling

Coefficient of drag lowered further

C 350 CGI featuring BlueEFFICIENCY spray-guided direct injection

spring 2008, Mercedes-Benz be adding three extra-economical saloons to the C-Class range. A of intelligent measures and technologies has the fuel consumption of the high-volume C 180 and C 200 CDI models to be reduced by up to twelve per while retaining the high of comfort and safety typical of a The BlueEFFICIENCY version of the 100 kW/136 hp C 200 CDI only 5.1 litres per 100 kilometres, the C 180 KOMPRESSOR BlueEFFICIENCY with 115 hp covers 100 kilometres with 6.5 of premium petrol. This to 135 and 156 grams of carbon dioxide, per kilometre. The third BlueEFFICIENCY model on show in Geneva is the C 350 CGI direct petrol injection. The unit burns around ten per less fuel than the with the current V6 engine.

For the new models, Mercedes engineers harnessed potentials from all of development to reduce weight, drag and rolling resistance yet and to organise the onboard energy of these saloons even efficiently. Together, these add up to a fuel saving on the NEDC cycle of 0.9 litres per 100 kilometres for the C 180 and 0.6 litres for the C 200 CDI.

The specialists in have made very improvements to the comprehensive lightweight concept of the C-Class, and have to shave off between 19 and 32 kilograms of depending on the model. This is in part due to a newly developed made of laminated glass, weighs around 1.2 kilograms than before. This is possible by a technology transfer the Maybach luxury saloon:

the panes of glass lies a acoustically effective plastic which efficiently absorbs noise. This has enabled engineers to reduce the thickness of the achieving a further weight without compromising noise in any way.

The noise-insulating lining of the has also been weight-optimised the help of special materials and the calculation methods. Using simulations, Mercedes-Benz recalculated the firewall insulation and precisely the material thickness of the sound-absorbing foam in line with the input. This needs-driven reduces the weight of the lining by 20 per cent.

Forged lightweight also have a positive on the weight. These tip the scales at 1.8 kilograms less than light-alloy wheels, saving a of more than seven per vehicle. These new lightweight (6 J x 16 ET 39), which have benefits too, are standard for the new BlueEFFICIENCY variants of the C 180 KOMPRESSOR and C 200

Newly developed tyres: 17 per less rolling resistance

In to lightweight construction measures, also devoted particular to reducing rolling resistance and drag. In collaboration with Mercedes engineers developed tyres

with a particularly low resistance. These are now receiving series production premiere in the and help to reduce fuel

Rolling resistance is primarily by tyre deformation as the tyre the road surface. This has a effect on the car, since energy is required to overcome deformation resistance. Therefore, the the rolling resistance, the higher the consumption. Up to around 100 km/h, resistance has a greater effect on consumption than aerodynamic

The belt of this newly tyre for the C-Class contains a mesh of high-strength steel for deformation. It is also lighter in than conventional designs, a further 1.7 kilograms or so to be saved per set of The secret, however, mainly in the chemical composition: the rubber for the treads and side walls is to ensure that rolling is reduced by 17 per cent, while the same good handling and characteristics.

Aerodynamic fine-tuning: Cd an outstanding 0.25

At 120 km/h, the drag of the vehicle body accounts for around 50 per cent of all the resistance a passenger car must Accordingly Mercedes-Benz has been active in the field of aerodynamics for years, and has achieved remarkable that have had a positive on the fuel consumption figures of bearing the Mercedes star.

a drag coefficient (Cd figure) of the C-Class is among the most efficient notchback saloons in its segment. This is the result of a series of intelligent details, as the tail lights with slits: these reduce by influencing the airflow along the walls, causing it to break off at the lights without causing behind the vehicle’s rear In this way the patented tail of the C-Class replace the usual lips.

In the new BlueEFFICIENCY versions of the C 180 and C 200 CDI, Mercedes engineers succeeded in bettering even the impressive Cd figure of the C-Class a number of other detailed

Smooth underbody cladding that the air can flow beneath the body without turbulences. The engine compartment and underbody of the diesel models is also equipment in the BlueEFFICIENCY version of the C 180

Partially blanking off the radiator reduces the airflow into the compartment, thereby lowering resistance. Adequate cooling of the engines is of course uncompromised by measure.

Sealing the joins the bonnet and headlamps, as well as the bumper and headlamps, improves the around the front end.

The of the exterior mirrors were in the wind tunnel, and are particularly in form.

Lowering the suspension by 15 reduces aerodynamic drag, and has a noticeable effect at higher

The design of the new lightweight wheels meets aerodynamic requirements, and the airflow around the vehicle

Thanks to this package of measures the Cd figure for the new BlueEFFICIENCY has been reduced by seven per to 0.25, representing another contribution to fuel economy.

energy management: needs-driven steering control

It is not only lightweight construction, tyres a low rolling resistance and good that help to further the economy and environmental compatibility of passenger cars. Intelligent of ancillary units and the reduction of losses can also make an contribution in this respect.

management is the key: in the BlueEFFICIENCY of the C-Class, the power steering is controlled on a needs-driven and therefore basis. The standard power in the C-Class has an additional valve switches off the servo pump it is not required. While this operates continuously in all driving in conventional steering systems, the new interrupts the flow of hydraulic when the car has followed a straight for a while, switching off the servo This has the advantage that the no longer needs to provide to drive the servo pump, that it operates more to this technology, the NEDC consumption is cut by 0.14 litres per 100 – which equates to a reduction of 2.5 per in the case of the C 200 CDI.

As a further to reduced weight and friction, the C 180 KOMPRESSOR and C 200 CDI saloons are equipped a newly developed final featuring further-improved antifriction forged differential gears and a lightweight construction. These reduce the friction forces the transmission, hence the engine less energy in overcoming

The longer final-drive ratios of the versions also help to fuel consumption. These are as

C 180 KOMPRESSOR: 2.87. 1 (rather 3.07. 1)

C 200 CDI: 2.47. 1 than 2.65. 1)

The C 180 KOMPRESSOR and C 200 CDI are both equipped with the manual transmission with characteristics as standard. With a of 0.838. 1 and 0.828. 1, respectively, gear considerably lowers the speed and fulfils a major for fuel-efficient driving.

Useful new gearshift and fuel consumption in the cockpit

A newly developed display in the cockpit informs the when he should change to save fuel. Experience during the Mercedes-Benz ECO Training has shown that drivers are to make average fuel of up to 15 per cent with an economical and style of driving – without any of driving enjoyment.

In fact ECO will practically come as in the future BlueEFFICIENCY versions of the in addition to gearshift recommendations, the cluster features a newly display showing the present consumption. This will in the centre of the speedometer as an easily bar chart. A brief glance at the is sufficient to tell the driver the fuel consumption in litres per 100 The bar chart responds immediately the driver changes to a higher or takes his foot off the accelerator to use the fuel cut-off function.

engines: downsized C 180 with the output

Under the bonnets of the new variants can be found well-proven engines, which are amongst the power units in the model around one quarter of all C-Class opt for these four-cylinder engines.

For the C 180 Mercedes-Benz has reduced the overall from 1796 to 1597 centimetres, while retaining the output (115 kW/156 hp) and (230 Newton metres).

downsizing of the engine’s displacement, with measures for optimising the chamber, mixture formation and friction, adds up to a total fuel saving of 0.35 per 100 kilometres.
