Comprehensive measures for low consumption values.

Fuel consumption further optimised.

The most important features:

  • Diesel engines with low fuel consumption with new efficiency measures, e.g. reduced in-engine wear and optimised pistons, improved toothed pulley drive and closed-loop fuel pump as needed
  • Manual transmission [1] with 6 or automatic transmission with 7 or 9 gears, that make it possible to keep engine speeds as low as possible in all driving conditions and therefore save fuel
  • Mercedes PRO services with optimisation potential, e.g. Vehicle Operations and Fleet Communication enable a more efficient planning of trips
  • Driver information for the motivation of fuel-economical driving, e.g. with switch point display, display of the average consumption and eco score display in conjunction with optional instrument cluster with colour display

[1] The standard 6-speed manual transmission in conjunction with the OM642 V6 cylinder diesel engine is expected to be available from Q4/2018.
