The Mercedes Benz F 700 concept will feature the German automaker's innovative powertrain technology called DIESOTTO. Under the hood of this model comes a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine that combines the low emissions of gasoline fuel with the fuel consumption advantages of diesel fuel.

A third vertical row of single high-performance LEDs are the daytime driving lights. The driver’s door also “observes” its surroundings attentively. If collisions threaten, the door is arrested by a controllable hydraulic cylinder.

Dr. Thomas Weber, Board member of DaimlerChrysler AG responsible for Group Research & Mercedes Car Group Development said: “Our goal is to make the gasoline-powered car just as economical in consumption as the diesel. The new DIESOTTO concept is a major step in that direction, combining the best properties of the spark-ignition engine and the diesel engine. The F 700 also sets standards in regard to road roar, tire vibration and suspension comfort. With two laser scanners the active PRE-SCAN suspension scans the roadway in front of the car. The hydraulically controlled active suspension proactively compensates for detected hindrances, enabling entirely new comfort characteristics –a flying carpet feeling."

Another innovative feature of the Mercedes Benz F 700 concept is the “SERVO-HMI”. This feature is a display of controls that are simple and self-explanatory. With this interface, the driver can make a conversation with the system when making navigation inputs like finding alternative routes, traffic information, and others.

Other initial features of the Mercedes Benz F 700 include long wheelbase, PRE-SCAN suspension, REVERSE seat, and interior with maximum spaciousness and supreme comfort. Mercedes Benz will released other features of this new concept during the official launch of the production version.
