The homogeneous/stratified direct
injection with high-pressure rail enables injection pressure
of up to 200 bar. The optimised valve timing comes
with variable camshaft adjustment and also camshaft
adjuster for the intake and exhaust valves.
C 200 petrol engine generates a maximum output of 135
kW (184 hp) and a peak torque of 300 Nm
The common-rail direct injection
system enables a system pressure of up to 2050 bar.
Indirect nozzle needle control creates the conditions
for highly flexible injection timing and smooth engine
operation, as well as a high output combined with low fuel
consumption and emissions.
Featuring nine forward gears, this automatic transmission takes efficiency, comfort and dynamism to a completely new level. It is the world's first 9-speed automatic transmission with hydrodynamic torque converter in the premium segment. The larger ratio range allows a reduction in engine speed, Performance remains excellent while ride comfort is enhanced and noise levels are reduced. Smaller gear ratio increments and faster gear changes lead to even greater responsiveness and agility. At the same time, 9G-TRONIC impresses with smooth, barely perceptible gear shifting like that of a continuously variable transmission.
At a touch of the DYNAMIC SELECT feature, drivers can choose between comfortable, sporty, particularly sporty and efficient driving styles, or their own individually defined style. Parameters such as the engine, transmission and steering characteristics are adjusted according to the selected transmission mode.
Brake Energy Recuperation
The regenerative braking system converts kinetic energy under braking into electrical energy and feeds surplus energy to the battery when the vehicle is slowing down. This along with other technologies such as ECO start/stop help in boosting the efficiency of the vehicle.
