BlueEFFICIENCY measures.

BlueEFFICIENCY measures are comprehensive vehicle optimisations that help save fuel and ease the burden on the environment. The most efficient engines have been combined with the best features available, to keep fuel consumption to a minimum.

  • 9G-TRONIC with ECO programme for low engine speeds and "Glide" function – engine is switched off/disengaged, extending the coasting phase
  • Sophisticated aerodynamics, e.g. with elaborate engine and underfloor panelling
  • ECO start/stop function
  • Efficient drive system with BlueDIRECT V6 and V8 engines, incl. piezo injectors with multiple injection and multi-spark ignition
  • Lightweight design in all areas
  • NANOSLIDE coating on cylinder sleeves for less friction and increased durability
  • On-demand regulation of ancillaries – e.g. oil pump
  • Rolling-resistance-optimised tyres
  • Consistent use of recycled elements, e.g. wheel-arch and underbody cladding made from polypropylene
