Mercedes is not sitting still in Europe with ever more fuel efficient B-Cla
Stuttgart ? Mercedes has overhauled the design and engineering of the B-Class. The facelift focused on environmental compatibility, economic efficiency and comfort. The four-cylinder engines now burn up to 7% less fuel than previously and distinguish themselves with remarkably low exhaust emissions that undercut the current EU limits by as much as 90%. Mercedes-Benz has developed a new ECO start/stop function for the high-volume B 150 and B 170 models. This switches off the engine when stopped at traffic lights producing a fuel saving of up to nine percent in practical use. Additional new developments include the bi-fuel gasoline/natural gas engine in the B 170 NGT BlueEFFICIENCY.
