    Wave-calmer.Terrifying eyes, angry body language,bad manners and someone who tames him

    Imagine someone hits a mountain face at a speed of 300 and nds it great. He is dragged through a dry river bed and he calls it a massage. Racing through a canyon in hellish temperatures is pure relaxation for him. The wilder the better! An inexplicable phenomenon? On the contrary!The point is: he simply loves causing turmoil! Strictly speaking one can even go so far as to say that this is his sole purpose in life: he tears newspapers from peoples hands, turns their umbrellas inside out so they look like satellite dishes, and in a particularly bad temper he is even known to pull the roof o a house.

    That hes such a wild boy could be down to the fact that both of his parents placed immense pressure on him right from the start. Imagine an overground clash of the titans: two high-ranking powers turn on each other with all their might, in the course of which our friend is catapulted out of the cradle. This happens with such momentum that he sometimes sweeps through the streets at more than 120 km/h!

    Be honest: are you not glad that the Crosswind Assist in the new GL-Class keeps this beast o your back?

    GL-Class BlueEFFICIENCY Pure comfort with a clean conscience: the marked reduction in fuel consumption and emissions demonstrates that environmental compatibility and SUV driving are mutually reconcilable.

    Through a whole series of measures implemented

    on the vehicle, engine and drive system, it has been

    possible to reduce the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of the new GL-Class in the case of the

    GL 350 CDI 4MATIC, for example, by 15% compared

    with the predecessor model. Not only was this

    achieved without any compromises where

    performance and comfort are concerned; on the

    contrary: it was even possible to increase the output

    and torque by up to 22% over the predecessor model.

    1 Refrigerant compressor only activated when actually needed.

    2 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission optimised to reduce fuel consumption.

    3 Ancillaries with energy-saving control (fuel pump and electro-mechanical Direct-Steer system).

    4 Optimised aerodynamics (i.a. underbody panelling, roof spoiler, exterior mirror housing, wheel spoiler) with one of the best gures in the segment (GL 350 CDI 4MATIC with a cd value of 0.35).

    5 Current consumption indicator promotes fuel-ecient driving.

    6 ECO start/stop function switches the engine o when at a standstill.

    7 Alternator management with kinetic-energy recuperation.

    8 Kerb weight lower than that of the predecessor model despite the extended host of equipment.

    Diesel engine Not only does the BlueEFFICIENCY diesel engine in the new GL-Class impress with its refined pulling power; this applies justas much to the emission and consumption figures which have been further optimised.
