1888PressRelease - Refinement meets efficiency.

The third generation Mercedes-Benz M-Class scores particularly high on outstanding energy efficiency, and on average the new model range consumes 25 percent less fuel than the previous models. One true champion in terms of fuel consumption is the ML 250 BlueTEC 4MATIC, which boasts an NEDC consumption of just 6.0 l/100 km (158 g CO2/km) and has a range of up to 1,170 kilometres on a full tank. Further strengths of the premium SUV with permanent all-wheel drive include exceptional safety and well-balanced ride comfort as well as excellent driving dynamics both on and off the road.

Today, Mercedes-Benz Hong Kong introduced its diesel technology and its first diesel passenger model, ML 250 BlueTEC, to the Hong Kong market. The fact that the new ML 250 BlueTEC is as fuel-efficient as the economical saloon cars displaying the Mercedes star makes the all-wheel-drive model even more desirable. A range of state-of-the-art engines, a class-leading cd figure (drag coefficient) of 0.34 lays the foundations for outstanding energy efficiency.

A model of success: the M-Class sets new standards in the world of the SUV

The BlueTEC diesel engine ensures excellent economy of the new M-Class. The BlueTEC units with SCR emissions technology, the focus is firmly on downsizing:

As the first Mercedes-Benz diesel model in Hong Kong for EU6 standard, the ML 250 BlueTEC 4MATIC replaced the previous ML 300 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY with the thrifty four-cylinder engine. The NEDC consumption of 6.0 l/100 km is 28 percent lower than that of the previous model. Thanks to AdBlue® emission control technology both diesel models comfortably meet the EU6 standard.

Long-distance champion: a high level of efficiency ensures a long range

The range calculated for a full tank of fuel is particularly impressive. With an NEDC consumption of 6.0 l/100 km, the ML 250 BlueTEC 4MATIC with the standard 70-litre tank can cover around 1170 kilometres before needing to stop for fuel.

In addition to the ECO start/stop function that comes as standard, these measures include the new seven-speed 7G/TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission with a new fuel-economy converter, friction-optimised bearings and a transmission oil thermal management system. Low-friction axle drives, electric steering, the optimised belt drive with decoupler, the on-demand control of all ancillary components and pumps, and tyres with low rolling resistance also play their part in reducing fuel consumption. What's more, intelligent lightweight design has stopped the weight from spiralling upwards.

With a drag coefficient, or cd figure, of 0.34, the new ML 250 BlueTEC also sets a new best figure for this vehicle class. Intensive simulations undertaken with the digital prototype, along with final touches added in the wind tunnel, ensure a perfect flow of air around the vehicle. The key factor determining the low wind resistance is the aerodynamic efficiency of the basic body shell, including the optimised design of the front bumper, of the A-pillars and of the roof spoiler, plus numerous other detailed improvements.

Well thought-out: safety at its best

In line with the Mercedes-Benz brand philosophy, the new M-Class represents the embodiment of the Mercedes-Benz holistic safety concept of Real Life Safety, which is derived primarily from what happens in a real accident situation. The extremely robust occupant compartment of the M-Class, together with the front and rear deformation zones, forms an effective basis for the occupant protection system. With nine airbags including the Kneebag, activated on demand in accordance with the accident type and accident severity, can reduce the loads exerted on the occupants.

Both active safety and driver-fitness safety in the new M-Class are further improved by assistance systems that will already be familiar, primarily from the S- and E-Class. The standard equipment package includes the drowsiness detection system ATTENTION ASSIST, the anticipatory safety system PRE SAFE® and a tyre pressure loss warning system, as well as adaptive brake lights and Brake Assist (BAS).

The new M-Class is further improved by the numerous active and passive assistance systems:

• PRE SAFE® • ATTENTION ASSIST, warns the driver of drowsiness • 9 airbags including Kneebag • Tyre pressure loss warning system • Intelligent Light System with specific lighting functions to match the relevant road and weather conditions • Night View Assist Plus (Optional) • ADAPTIVE BRAKE with the functions Hill-Start Assist, priming, brake drying and hold function • Brake Assist (BAS) to support the driver in critical braking manoeuvres • Active Parking Assist including PARKTRONIC • Reversing camera (Optional), e.g. with "back-in" mode with dynamic guide lines for reversing into narrow parking bays or to aid with the coupling of trailers • Adaptive brake light warns vehicles behind in an emergency braking situation with flashing brake lights

The new ML 250 BlueTEC will be displayed at Mercedes-Benz Causeway Bay showroom from 7th, February, 2014.
