Mercedes A-Class BlueEFFICIENCY Edition
The range of the Mercedes A-Class has been enhanced with two new features every few months after the debut. The Stuttgart company announced the arrival in its offering of two new versions of the family BlueEFFICIENCY, an acronym that characterizes models with solutions aimed at containing consumption and emissions. One of the two new is the Mercedes A-Class 180 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY Edition which is a variant of turbodiesel that the German manufacturer presented as “the most environmentally friendly Mercedes of all time.” The car declares a combined fuel consumption of 3.6 liters per 100 kilometers while CO2 emissions come in 92 g/km.

The other new Mercedes A-Class 180 BlueEFFICIENCY Edition is characterized by gasoline. This variant consumption is 5.2 liters per 100 km, with emissions that totaled about 120 g/km of CO2. The BlueEFFICIENCY Edition models benefit from additional aging compared to other models in the catalog. In fact, thanks to devices such as partial coverage of the upper front grille, aerodynamic coatings of the swinging arms and trim suspension lowered by 15 millimeters the drag coefficient is increased from 0.27 (value referring to the preparations of the A-Class ) to 0.26.

The technicians have also obtained a reduction in the consumption of about 5%, result centered around modifying the handling of the alternator and by making changes to the gearbox which now presents the relationship longer for higher gears in order to lower the number of revolutions of the motor when traveling at a constant speed, as usually happens in the highway. The two new Mercedes A-Class BlueEFFICIENCY Edition will be available in advance from February 1 before being delivered to customers starting in March.
