2010 Mercedes-Benz C-Class receives ECO start/stop function, new engines

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

Mercedes-Benz has introduced an ECO start/stop function on the C-Class, adding to the model's fuel economy and responsiveness. The technology is currently featured on the C 180 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY, C 200 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY and the C 200 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY versions. In addition, Mercedes-Benz has introduced the C 250 CDI 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY to the lineup.

This is the first time that a four-cylinder diesel engine is attached to a four-wheel drive. The engine is able to generate 150 kW (204 hp) and a peak torque of 500 Nm. The model is fitted with a seven-speed automatic transmission as standard.

Instead of the four-cylinder petrol engine with direct injection, which was only offered for C-Class models equipped with an automatic transmission, the vehicle can also be specified with a six-speed manual transmission and the new ECO start/stop function.

The engine stops automatically in certain conditions: when the car approaches traffic lights, when its speed drops below 8 km/h, and as soon as the driver applies the brakes and moves the gear lever to neutral.

The engine starts right away if the driver presses the accelerator or clutch pedal. Availability of the ECO start/stop function is seen on the instrument cluster. The order books have been opened for the new Mercedes-Benz C 180 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY (from EUR32,219.25) and C 200 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY (from EUR34,242.25).

Starting fall 2010, the C 250 CDI 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY model (from EUR43,524.25) and the C 220 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY model with ECO start/stop function (from EUR36,384.25) will be offered. German list prices are inclusive of VAT.
