The new diesel engines from Mercedes-Benz are now available from the compact class to the luxury class. With these engines, Mercedes-Benz vehicles achieve average nitrogen-oxide (NOx) emissions of between 40 and 60 milligrams per kilometer over many thousands of kilometers of driving on the road under the conditions of the Real Driving Emissions (RDE) measuring method. This is made possible by an innovative package of combining engine and exhaust-gas aftertreatment, which has been introduced consistently over the past two years as part of the new generation of engines and is continuously being developed further.
ECO mode gives you particularly comprehensive support if you want to avoid CO2 and pollutants. The seat heating and air conditioning work with reduced output in this setting and thus also save valuable energy. With Individual mode you choose all the respective parameters yourself. This means that you can select a sporty setting for the drive system and at the same time have a comfortable setting for the chassis.
