This highly compact in-line six-cylinder engine meets high expectations within performance, comfort and environmental care. The smooth running and responsive engine character provides a relaxed drive at all speeds. Advanced engine technology, such as the variable geometry intake manifold, helps increase torque over a wide speed range and ensures power at high revs. And depending on your driving style and the situation, the intake valve train automatically switches between economy and performance modes to optimize efficiency.
The engine’s compact design aids safety performance in a frontal collision. The latest generation of fast response emission control technology ensures that this engine complies with stringent environmental standards such as California’s ULEV II.
Six-speed Geartronic Transmission offers the best of both worlds. Leave it in six-speed automatic mode for carefree driving, or nudge it into manual mode to shift gears yourself. This allows you to maintain a lower gear, for example, to provide added engine braking as you approach a bend or curve. The automatic transmission is also perfect if you need to get the car to crawl slowly with a heavy load under difficult conditions.
Active at speeds above 30 mph, the adaptive brake light can sense the difference between normal and panic braking. If it is a panic situation, all the brake lights will flash at a rate of four times per second. Once your speed slows to below 19 mph, the lights stop flashing and hazard lights flash instead. Using LED technology that needs less time to light up than regular bulbs, traffic behind you can react sooner.
The powerful daytime halogen headlights make you more conspicuous to other road users, and the halo of light around their low-beam projector lights makes it easier for them to gauge their distance from your car. Daytime running lights are halogen semi-sealed with replaceable bulbs.
Adjust the driver’s seat and door mirrors to a position perfect for you and save the settings. Every time you use your central locking remote, the seats and mirrors will automatically adjust to your preferences. Up to three different seat and door mirror settings can be saved into the memory system that is linked to the central locking remote controls. Each remote triggers the corresponding setting from the last time that particular remote control was used.
