Thanks to the pneumatic all-round self-levelling suspension, the vehicle maintains a constant level irrespective of the load. The suspension can be raised by up to 50 mm to increase ground clearance. At high speeds the suspension is automatically lowered, helping to reduce aerodynamic drag and further improve handling stability.
The 4-cylinder petrol engine boasts a displacement of 2.0 l, direct injection, variable valve timing and turbo-charging – as featured on board the E 200 with 135 kW (184 hp). Peaking at 300 Nm, it also offers exceptional torque and power, combined with low fuel consumption and emissions in keeping with current standards. Reduced engine weight, optimised cylinder charging and lower internal friction also help to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
Efficiency, comfort and dynamics on a whole new level – the 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission is the world’s first 9-speed automatic transmission in the premium segment that can be deployed with longitudinally mounted engines and features a hydrodynamic torque converter. The high efficiency helps to reduce fuel consumption. Smaller gear ratio increments and faster gear changes lead to even greater responsiveness and agility. At the same time, the 9G-TRONIC impresses with its smooth, barely perceptible gear shifting.
