Mercedes E 220 BlueTEC Delivers Power, Smooth Operation And Fuel Economy

While the driving dynamics, comfort and pleasure sign of the German luxury carmaker exist, the latest E 220 BlueTEC also underscores the environmental credentials from the E-Class, emitting just 128 grams of CO2 per kilometre.

The E 220 BlueTECs drive product is operated by a 4-cylinder diesel engine with direct injection. Mercedes says the engine combines qualities that have been previously incompatible - maximum tractive power and smooth operation - while at the same time operating on minimal fuel consumption.

Mercedes refers to the E-Class because the efficiency class, offering superior pleasure with fuel economy. It says 4.9 litres of diesel can get the E 220 BlueTEC a distance of 100 kilometres (NEDC combined) and its CO2 emission degree of 128 grams per kilometre betters every other vehicle in the segment. Consequently, the E 220 BlueTEC already meets the near future Euro 6 emissions standard.

Among competitors from the E 220 BlueTEC are the 2014 BMW 535d and 2014 Audi A6 TDI Diesel. The BMW features an inline six-cylinder turbocharged 3.0-litre engine that delivers an even and quiet ride that can make one forget the vehicles a diesel, as the Audi has lag-free power delivery that nicely complements its imperturbable feel and sense of unmatched solidity and creates satisfying back-road running and easy handling in traffic.

Fuel-efficient the E 220 BlueTEC is. Yet its also gutsy, generating 177 horsepower and impressive torque of 400 Newton-metres. Acceleration from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour is in 8.4 seconds and top speed is 227 kilometres each hour.

The latest model includes a 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic thats been optimized with respect to driving comfort and consumption, and theres an ECO start/stop function that ensures the engine is temporarily turned off when the vehicle is at a standstill.

BlueEFFICIENCY technologies were used to achieve the greatest possible environmental compatibility, says Mercedes.

The common-rail diesel technology features up to 2000 bar of increased injection pressure, optimized combustion chambers and fast, precisely switching injectors. Fast-acting ceramic glow plugs help to improve cold-running properties.

Our prime torque obtainable in all engine speed ranges is because of the high ignition pressure and two-stage supercharging, while two Lanchester balancer shafts assistance to guarantee the required smoothness of operation.
