Meanwhile, active grids called Advanced airpanel open and close to optimize engine cooling, in addition to another second set of "blind" under tuition that improve aerodynamic performance at high speed. Back, another of vanguardismo, although optional flash in this case. Optical groups based on an unpublished reflective technology they look, depending on the brand, like stardust, with a special glow reminiscent of the Milky Way.
At the time of launch, Mercedes E-Class will feature two completely new engines. In gasoline, E 200 hides a 2.0-liter block with supercharging and direct injection yielding 184 hp.
