Mercedes’ E 220 BlueTEC Delivers Power, Smooth Operation And Fuel Economy By James Burton


While a pushing dynamics, comfort and pleasure evil of a German oppulance carmaker are there, a latest E 220 BlueTEC also underscores a environmental certification of a E-Class, emitting only 128 grams of CO2 per kilometre.

The E 220 BlueTEC’s expostulate complement is powered by a 4-cylinder diesel engine with approach injection. Mercedes says a engine combines qualities that were formerly deliberate exclusive – limit tractive energy and well-spoken operation – while during a same time doing on minimal fuel consumption.

Mercedes refers to a E-Class as a ‘efficiency class’, charity higher pushing pleasure with fuel economy. It says 4.9 litres of diesel will get a E 220 BlueTEC a stretch of 100 kilometres (NEDC combined) and a CO2 glimmer turn of 128 grams per kilometre betters any other car in a segment. As a result, a E 220 BlueTEC already meets a destiny Euro 6 emissions standard.

Among competitors of a E 220 BlueTEC are a 2014 BMW 535d and 2014 Audi A6 TDI Diesel. The BMW facilities an inline six-cylinder turbocharged 3.0-litre engine that delivers a well-spoken and still float that can make one forget a vehicle’s a diesel, while a Audi has lag-free energy fibre that easily complements a serene feel and clarity of unmatched reduction and creates for gratifying back-road using and easy doing in traffic.

Fuel-efficient a E 220 BlueTEC is. Yet it’s also gutsy, generating 177 horsepower and considerable torque of 400 Newton-metres. Acceleration from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour is in 8.4 seconds and tip speed is 227 kilometres per hour.

The latest indication facilities a 7G-TRONIC PLUS involuntary delivery that’s been optimized with honour to pushing comfort and consumption, and there’s an ECO start/stop duty that ensures a engine is temporarily switched off when a car is during a standstill.

The common-rail diesel record facilities adult to 2000 bar of increasing injection pressure, optimized explosion chambers and fast, precisely switching injectors. Fast-acting ceramic heat plugs assistance to urge cold-running properties.

The high torque accessible in all engine speed ranges is interjection to a high ignition vigour and two-stage supercharging, while dual Lanchester balancer shafts assistance to pledge a compulsory fibre of operation.
