Could anyone please tell me what
BlueTEC HYBRID and
Blue Efficiency mean and the pros and cons of those ? Are those better than BMWs
Efficient Dynamics ? Common faults they undergo ? Maintenance criteria ?
As Mercedes-Benz claims, it reduces fuel consumption by up to 12.1%, without a performance drop. They also claim that it is environment-friendly (Consume less fuel and emit less CO2) They are achieving these by doing:
A better and newer version of BlueEFFICIENCY again by MB.
you can see comparison of 2011:
S350 CDI BlueEFF vs S350 BlueTEC 2987cc - 2987cc 235hp +8.50% 255hp 540Nm +7.00% 580Nm 37.2 mpg +13.0% 42.2 mpg 199 g/km -11.0% 178 g/km
so you can see the power & performance increase, fuel economy and reduced CO2.
BMW version of Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC.
I won't be listing additionally because they are nearly the same but here is a picture which shows the ED specs
Increased performance, better fuel economy and less CO2.
I was a BMW E46 3.20i user, and now I have got a BMW F30 3.20i
Thinking about it and there is too much improvement in technical specs between 2 cars. I believe it will continue to improve drastically with the developing technology.
I am very happy with my car so the difference is real :) As for MB, I am not a fan of it, but I am sure (and most people say) BMW and MB are similar and in competition with each other so you can expect the same outcome.
