Less Vehicle Noise with EcoLife

The engine speed can be kept low thanks to the intelligent design, six fine-stepped gears, and the TopoDyn Life shift program. During the setting-off process, a maximum speed reduction of about 700 revolutions per minute compared to conventional automatic transmissions is possible. DEKRA expert opinion confirms up to 6.4 dB(A) lower noise level when setting off.

Lower speeds relate to reduced engine noise - thus, it is not only the pedestrians and people who live near bus stops who benefit from this development but also the passengers. In particular in the area of the rear seat rows, an enormous noise level is generated due to the high engine speeds.
