Eco-motoring just got a little more exciting thanks to Brabus' new performance package for the Mercedes CGI BlueEFFICIENCY lineup.
Dubbed the ECO PowerXtra CGI, the package features a "processor-controlled plug & play" auxiliary control unit. It can be installed by any Mercedes-Benz dealer in less than an hour.
In the C 200 and E 200 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY, the unit enables the engine to produce an additional 26 PS (25 hp / 19 kW) and 30 Nm (22 lb-ft) of torque. When installed on the C 250 and E 250 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY, power climbs from 204 PS (201 hp / 150 kW) and 310 Nm (228 lb-ft) to 230 PS (227 hp / 169 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. Finally, the ECO PowerXtra CGI allows the C 350, CLS 350 and E 350 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY to produce an additional 18 PS (18 hp / 13 kW).
While Brabus declined to release fuel efficiency data, they stated the ECO PowerXtra CGI delivers "favorable fuel economy thanks to the engines' improved pulling power."
