What is Mercedes-Benz ECO-Start®/Stop?

March 22nd, 2019 by

The Mercedes-Benz ECO-START® / Stop system is designed to seamlessly enhance your fuel efficiency by automatically turning off the engine when your vehicle comes to a complete stop, as it does at traffic signals, while sitting in traffic, and at other times during your drive. This is a standard feature on many vehicles at our Mercedes-Benz dealership in Princeton.

When you take your foot off the brake, the engine automatically resumes so that you can continue your drive without missing a beat. Because the system is fully automated, you can look forward to enhanced efficiency without having to change the way you drive.

If conditions aren’t ideal, such as when the engine still needs to warm up or when climate control is necessary, ECO-Start®/Stop automatically knows not to kick in. If you prefer not to use ECO-Start®/Stop, you can deactivate or reactivate it at any time with the push of a button, located below the ignition button or on the center console, depending on the model of vehicle you drive.

Ready to get the most out of the fuel you use, all without missing a beat? Learn more by contacting Mercedes-Benz of Princeton at (609) 910-5826 today!
