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
Consistent use of recycled elements, e.g. wheel-arch and underbody cladding made from polypropylene
For many years now, Mercedes-Benz has given great importance to the air quality in the vehicle interior as well as the allergy-friendliness of the components and materials used. For that reason Mercedes-Benz is the only vehicle manufacturer in the world to have been awarded the Seal of Quality of the European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF).
