Ignite your ideas and turn them into reality

Spontaneous excursions, meticulously planned road trips, nipping across town, cruising through the countryside - the journeys you will want to make in your new GLC call for a flexible engine. Welcome to the diesel world of Mercedes-Benz

The highlights of our 4-cylinder diesel engine

The Mercedes-Benz engineers have achieved outstanding results with regard to agility, smoothness of operation and consumption with the 4-cylinder diesel engine. Look forward to handling characteristics that can only be described as harmonious. At every output level the engine is powerful, economical and above all clean.

Details on the engine technology

The common-rail direct injection enables system pressure to reach up to 2050 bar. Indirect jet needle control delivers a high level of flexibility in respect of the injection timing and smooth running of the engine.

The compact module for the two-stage turbocharging comprises a small high-pressure and a large low-pressure exhaust gas turbocharger. The combustion air flow is controlled by the two exhaust gas turbochargers to suit requirements. This leads to improved cylinder charging, and therefore to higher torque even at low engine speeds.

The sophisticated controls on the turbochargers ensure agility when moving off, as well as balanced handling characteristics.

Details on efficiency

The oil and water pumps for our diesel engines in the GLC are switched on and off as required. This reduces consumption and the untreated emissions. In addition, reaching the operating temperature quickly reduced emissions and consumption.

Furthermore, the ECO start/stop function ensures that fuel is saved. And the ECO display in the instrument cluster encourages the driver to further reduce consumption by modifying his or her driving style.
