The short-throw action and optimum matching of engine power, transmission ratios and final drive ratio provide optimum conditions for sporty yet fuel-efficient driving. In addition, a display in the instrument cluster supports a particularly thrifty driving mode.
The new consumption- and efficiency-optimised 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission is the new highlight of Mercedes-Benz's transmission technology. Lower fuel consumption and virtually imperceptible gearshifts make for comfortable travel on all lengths of journey.
