Small Mercedes-Benz Diesel Gets Big Benefit from K&N E-2998 Replacement Air Filter

2009-2015 E-Class Mercedes-Benz K&N Air Filter

The landmark E250 4-cylinder diesel engine powers 68 E-Class Mercedes-Benz models from 2009-2015, and they only need one replacement air filter from K&N.

What comes to mind when Mercedes-Benz is mentioned in automotive conversation? The answer is Teutonic efficiency, impeccable engineering, solid construction, classic design lines, understated elegance, and exemplary dealer support. Add to this, the company’s rich corporate history, past racing success, and the Patentwagen (world’s first automobile circa 1898). Yes, all of that. But does anyone think “innovative, efficient, economical 4-cylinder diesel in an executive class car”? Not until 2009, when Mercedes-Benz repowered its E-Class with the breakthrough E250 L4-2.1L diesel.

Mercedes executives asked the motoring public to “imagine a 4-cylinder diesel”, and they were able to do so. By early 2012 the E-Class achieved a 500,000-unit sedan production milestone. That it also got a complete “facelift” redesign in the W212 series for 2013 helped as well, reestablishing its reputation for solid, balanced elegance. And, what may be its most economical E-Class powerplant, the E250 BlueTec, has kept this line confident and moving forward for more than seven years.

This mighty turbocharged mini, at 2.1 liters, 195 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, continues to power a near-two-ton luxury sedan around town and on road trips with reliability and performance nearly comparable to its 6-cylinder sibling, and has been described as “the most fuel-efficient” in the line. The powertrain is hefty, with a seven-speed automatic transmission with shift paddles on the steering wheel, and an automatic stop-start function that turns off the engine when the car stops to save fuel. Equipped with the same trim level accoutrements as the larger cars it accelerates a bit slower, but it saves considerably on engine consumables. What a best-case scenario for the post-decession car owner to keep that thrifty powerplant healthy by using a cleanable, reusable K&N E-2998 Replacement Air Filter?

E-Class Mercedes-Benz 4-cylinder diesel engine K&N Air Filter

A diesel engine needs more airflow and better particulate protection than a comparably sized gasoline powerplant, and the K&N E-2998 air filter fills the bill with increased dust-trapping ability

For diesels, it is perhaps more important to have good air filtration because their higher compression ratios demand greater airflow. Without adequate particulate reduction, this engine can wear more quickly and severely than a gasoline engine. This is where the K&N E-2998 Replacement Air Filter can help by trapping more dirt particles and high airflow efficiency. This filter’s overall filtration rating, when testing following the internationally recognized ISO5011 test protocol, is 97.99%. Interestingly enough, there are 68 E-Class models in the K&N vehicle applications list, ranging from 2009 to 2015, that all share the same Mercedes part number and can use this filter.

This K&N air filter, constructed with unique oiled cotton gauze material, can be removed from the air box, cleaned and reused after about 50,000 miles, depending on driving conditions. The filter is “emissions legal” in all 50 U.S. states, won’t void the vehicle warranty and, should anything be remiss, it is covered a worry-free 10-year/million-mile limited Warranty.

Mercedes-Benz C-Class, E-Class Replacement Air Filter

More than 65 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, E-Class, and GLK vehicle models can make use of the same K&N E-2988 replacement air filter
