Mercedes E Class gets a 9G-Tronic nine-speed automatic

The current E Class facelift of Mercedes is going to get a brand new gearbox, automatic, with 9 speed steps. Called 9G-Tronic, the feature will enter with E350 Blue TEC Mercedes version.

Say good bye to the old 7G-Tronic and get ready to embrace innovation. The cars equipped with 9G-Tronic should jump from 0 to 100 km/h in exactly 6.6 seconds and while this is not a major leap, the considerably lower level of fuel consumption is definitely something to appreciate.
