Space at the rear is a little tight and Comand ergonomics show the age of the concept but the next generation which will come in 2015 will improve dramatically both critics. Conventional systems offered by competitors can only maintain the speed programmed at the outset, meaning the speed cannot be altered while the system is in action. In addition to good performance, the engine generates an impressive torque at low engine speeds: Peak torque of 400 Nm is available over a wide rev range from 1400 to 2800 rpm, making it possible to drive very fuel efficiently at low engine speeds in everyday driving situations. The rear longitudinal members are made from high-strength steel in the critical crumple zones. Germanii de la Mercedes-Benz sunt în plină campanie de înnoire a gamei de modele. Additional reinforcements are to be found in the floor assembly, the propshaft tunnel and the links to the body pillars.
I feel safe and in control dodging those semi trucks and smoothly passing by potholes. Proven V6 Powerplant The new sport utility is destined to be one of the most fuel-efficient Mercedes-Benz vehicles ever. When a potential accident situation is detected, the system primes both the occupants and the vehicle for a possible impact. If, on the other hand, the vehicle is purpose-built for ride comfort and off-road expertise by fitting softer dampers, its driving dynamics will of course suffer. Bref, un G plus adapté aux grands parcours qu'à la piste, avec un confort que j'imagine voisin de celui d'une bonne berline. The friction-optimised construction means we have substantially less frictional losses in the powertrain than other systems where the engines are installed transversely, for instance. Yet it's not pure box either.
The same is true of the chrome door openers in the front and rear. Reducing the unsprung masses in the steering system in this way has given steering comfort an additional boost. Active and cornering light functions: Depending on the steering angle, yaw rate and vehicle speed, the active light function pivots the headlamps sideways by up to 15 degrees in fractions of a second to greatly improve illumination of the road ahead. On the one hand, the sophisticated finish of the surfaces brings the latest in Mercedes design to the interior. Two chassis set-up options are available. It makes it very easy to keep the interior clean.
The water-catching channel on the A-pillar has been specially designed to prevent water from overflowing onto the side window, even in heavy, steady rain. Yet it's not pure box either. The exterior mirror housing collects any water that strikes it in a groove running around its circumference before directing it outwards to a defined drip point. This detail lends tranquillity to the profile view and elongates the greenhouse, as it is known, to dynamic effect. Masa maşinii se face simţită doar la limită, atunci când realizezi totuşi faptul că nu te afli la volanul unei compacte cu abilităţi sport. Calitatea materialelor şi a asamblării este însă la cele mai înalte standarde Mercedes-Benz, pasagerii având la dispoziţie şi o sumedenie de dotări de confort.
During the test, the extra-urban fuel consumption had stabilized around 6. Just like the fine-tuning drives in the Namib, the test drives near the Arctic Circle form part of our approval procedure prior to the start-up of series production. This is the most comfortable vehicle I have owned and I am very satisfied with my purchase. The loads exerted on the vehicle when driving over dunes or through deep sand, for example, are certainly similar to the demands experienced when driving in deep snow or up passes. Powder snow and desert dust likewise behave in a similar fashion.
Vehicle functions such as the climate control settings continue to be controlled by means of classic switch elements, which are clustered together in clearly arranged groups. Steering comfort has been further enhanced in both steering variants, thanks to meticulous attention to detail. Up until the end of the second year of registration, the MobiloLife mobility guarantee applies unconditionally. The body is beautifully proportioned length 4528 mm, width 1840 mm, height 1689 mm , while there is a special allure in the interplay between the classic angular shape and the typical design features found in all contemporary Mercedes-Benz passenger cars. Additional shortcut buttons provide direct access to the most important main functions. .
This increase in pressure potential is a prerequisite for increasing engine output and torque while at the same time significantly reducing untreated emissions. It is here that parts of the wheel location componentry, the steering gear and the engine mounting are secured. The system detects any sudden drop in tyre pressure and alerts the driver to the situation by flashing up a warning message in the instrument cluster. New colours and vivid graphics further simplify usability without losing any of the familiar clarity. This is the best overall vehicle for me! Hill-start assist prevents the vehicle from rolling contrary to the intended direction of travel. The key benefit of this intelligent, on-demand control is the improved cylinder charging and, consequently, high torque even at low engine speeds. Handling stability and, consequently, driving safety must be absolutely guaranteed, both when accelerating or braking and when cornering.
Or the fuel supply to the engine: does diesel fuel continue to flow freely at extremely low temperatures, is the formation of vapour bubbles in petrol engines prevented at extremely high temperatures? Relaxed, fatigue-free driving, even over long distances, is helped by the sense of wellbeing aboard the vehicle that Mercedes is renowned for. This model has the Command Navigation system and keyless go, which are nice features, and the sound system is awesome. I've noticed complaints from other owners regarding this issue and it appears to be a design flaw. A pleasant interior temperature whatever the weather The standard comfort features include an elaborate system that maintains an ideal interior climate no matter whether driving in the depths of winter, the height of summer, through clouds of dust on dried-out tracks, or when pollen levels are critical. The front-end assembly comprises an extruded aluminium section, a single-piece crash box made from aluminium which connects to the front longitudinal members, as well as a multipiece sheet steel framework which holds the headlamp assemblies, the bumper, the washer fluid reservoir and the bonnet catches. This operating mode promises maximum fun at the wheel when venturing off-road. Folding the entire backrest flat produces 1550 litres of load capacity, with the load compartment then measuring 1674 millimetres in length.
In addition to fully galvanising the body, its resistance to corrosive attack is further enhanced by applying a protective coating to the cavities, sealing the body flanges and employing a specially designed paintwork system. Mercedes-Benz is the only car maker to offer this important equipment detail for off-road motoring. The smooth-running four-cylinder unit limits itself to 6. Bonne route à toi aussi à bord de ce beau joujou. This control strategy improves traction off-road, particularly on low-friction surfaces such as sand, gravel or stone chippings. And the more effective this power transfer, the less frequently the electronic control systems need to intervene. Running along the beltline below the side windows is a chrome-plated trim strip which merges into the contours of the front wing and rear sidewall.
Front and rear headroom figures are 39. The off-road-related body dimensions are equally impressive. Perceptive safety is given a further boost by the powerful H7 headlamp system with integrated cornering light function and Headlamp Assist. Standard integrated Bluetooth interface for mobile phones, a microphone for the hands-free system and a central 5-inch color display round out the list of interior appointments. However, that adds to its cache.
