The 221-hp 2.0L inline-4 engine combines turbocharging with numerous advances to deliver more power from less fuel. Its rapid-multispark ignition and high-pressure Direct Injection can fine-tune themselves in milliseconds. Its twin-scroll turbo and CAMTRONIC variable valve lift help keep all 258 lb-ft of torque on tap from just 1,800 rpm. Clever CONICSHAPE cylinders slash friction to help reduce wear and fuel consumption.
The 8-speed transmission combines the sporty response of a manual, the easygoing refinement of an automatic, and exceptional efficiency. Dual clutches offer quicker gear changes than a human can shift a traditional manual gearbox, while three overdrive ratios boost highway efficiency. The ECO, Sport and Comfort modes of DYNAMIC SELECT let you favor fully automatic efficiency and comfort, intensified response, or shift-for-yourself excitement via the steering wheel-mounted shift paddles.
Engineered to balance quick-witted responsiveness with quiet refinement, the 4-wheel independent suspension features a combination of MacPherson struts and wishbones up front, with a four-link design at the rear. Comfort tuning balances its sporty handling with a refined ride quality befitting a Mercedes-Benz.
ESP, our standard Electronic Stability Program, also incorporates our Electronic Traction System (ETS), which monitors for the first sign of wheel slip and can respond to ensure torque is sent to the front wheel with better grip.
LED front foglamps help enhance the driver's vision in inclement weather. They also add a sporty styling touch to the sculpted front air dam.
Whenever the front wipers are on and you shift to Reverse, the rear-window wiper can sweep automatically to clear your view out the back. The wiper can also be switched on to its intermittent setting at any time by the driver, and includes a washer.
Sleek and purposeful, the roof rails accommodate a variety of available accessory attachments for carrying bikes, surfboards, skis, snowboards and cargo carriers. They're crafted from elegant aluminum that adds modern style even when you're not using them.
Program your Mercedes-Benz to illuminate its exterior lights when you unlock it in darkness, to help illuminate a path to your vehicle.
Power adjustment makes it easy to set the side mirrors for your optimum view. Automatic heating helps disperse mist or frost from their lenses in poor weather.
Separate left and right temperature controls allow the driver and front passenger to enjoy personalized comfort. In addition to fully automatic or manual control of blower speed and airflow distribution, the system includes a dust and pollen filter that helps keep particles as small as 5 microns from entering the cabin. Five adjustable vents in the dash and a pair of rear-cabin air vents help maintain passenger enjoyment throughout the cabin.
Place and answer calls, and even access select phonebooks without taking your hands off the steering wheel with standard Bluetooth® connectivity for hands-free calling. Pairing your Bluetooth-compatible phone with the vehicle is simpler than ever. Then, just leave your phone in your pocket and enjoy hands-free conversations over the audio system.
For added convenience in the rain or with an armful of packages, you can fully open and close the liftgate via a switch on the driver's interior door panel or a button on the SmartKey remote. Press a button on the driver's door or the underside of the liftgate and it powers itself closed. A sensor automatically stops the liftgate if it detects an obstruction, and you can set the system to limit the opening height, useful under low ceilings.
State-of-the-art USB-C connectors allow plug-and-play enjoyment from your compatible devices as well as fast charging of your phone. A total of four ports are provided in the cabin.
All new Mercedes-Benz vehicles are protected by our New Vehicle Limited Warranty, covering defects in material or workmanship for 48-months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. For added protection, the Mercedes-Benz Extended Limited Warranty offers continued peace of mind with prolonged coverage tailored to your needs.
For a better view of what's behind your vehicle when reversing, a high-resolution camera can display a live view on the central in-dash screen. Steering-dependent active guidelines on the screen can help you back into a parking space, and you can select between wide-angle and even wider 180-degree views.
Interpreting information that is continually supplied by the car's Electronic Stability Program (ESP®), electric power steering and suspension sensors, Crosswind Assist can help detect the effects of strong side winds on the vehicle's handling stability at highway speeds. Whether caused by lateral gusts or even a passing truck, the system can help keep the car on course via strategic braking of the wheels on one side of the vehicle.
When traveling above approximately 20 mph, radar technology can help sense when a vehicle enters the blind-spot area. Blind Spot Assist can then alert the driver via an illuminated red icon in the appropriate side mirror. An audible warning sounds if the driver activates a turn signal while a vehicle is detected in the blind spot. After parking, Exit Warning Assist can alert the driver or passengers to vehicles, cyclists or pedestrians that could be at risk if the door is opened.
An advanced system of seven air bags offers 10-way occupant protection. Standard are two-stage front air bags and side-impact air bags for the driver and front passenger, a driver's knee air bag, plus side curtain air bags for both seating rows.
