BlueEFFICIENCY from Mercedes-Benz stands for pioneering efficiency technologies as well as innovative packages of measures based on optimising fuel consumption and emission levels.
The BlueEFFICIENCY models for the R-Class
Two models for the new R-Class feature environmentally compatible technologies and extensive special measures: R 300 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY and R 350 BlueTEC 4MATIC.
Efficiency technologies in the R-Class
BlueTEC catalytic converter technology uses the reactant AdBlue® to purify exhaust gases. This makes it possible to reduce nitrogen oxides by up to 80%. This exceptionally clean diesel technology is applied in the R 350 BlueTEC 4MATIC. It already complies with the future EU6 exhaust emissions standard.
The latest-generation CDI diesel engines combine irresistible performance characteristics with low consumption. Injection pressure has been increased, smoothness of operation enhanced and noise levels optimised – while reduced compression makes for lower emission levels.
Packages of measures for the R-Class
The BlueEFFICIENCY and BlueTEC models are equipped with a range of features. These include:
Intelligent energy management, e.g. ECO power-steering pump with demand control
Driver information for energy-saving driving
Tyres optimised for rolling resistance
Improved aerodynamics, e.g. solid star in grille, front wheel spoilers, underbody panelling and optimised front bumper
