Mercedes-Benz introduces new range of parts for older vehicles

Mercedes-Benz has introduced a new range of maintenance and wear & tear parts for its passenger car range called Mercedes-Benz StarParts.

This new range has been developed, tested and approved to strict Mercedes-Benz quality and safety standards and is applicable to Mercedes-Benz models that are five years or older.

The assortment of parts include engine filters, cabin filters, brake discs, brake pads, spark plugs, glow plugs, wipers and batteries. The applicable vehicle assortment covers Compact Class (A Class, B Class, CLA & GLA), Mid Class (C Class & E Class) to SUV & Sports Class (ML, GL, SLK & R Class).

The quality standard of the range of Mercedes-Benz StarParts is tested to the highest international standard. In a recent brake test carried out by the independent testing institute DEKRA, on behalf of Daimler AG, five brake pads by various suppliers were tested. The tests were conducted according to the German automotive magazine Auto Motor & Sport for fit accuracy during installation, cold behaviour, warm behaviour, high-speed behaviour and wear. The external condition was assessed once again after completing the tests.

The test vehicle was a 2009 Mercedes-Benz C220 CDI. The brake pads from Mercedes-Benz StarParts achieved the best overall result. Alongside safe braking characteristics with short braking distances and almost spark-free, high-speed brake applications, Mercedes-Benz StarParts were also convincing after the tests, with overall even erosion and low wear.

Terence Maguire, Mercedes-Benz parts manager said: “We are delighted to make this new range of parts from Mercedes- Benz available to our customers. With the same quality that you would expect and very competitively priced, with retail prices that are 25 per cent less than the genuine equivalent, they are a great addition to our portfolio of parts products, that includes Mercedes-Benz Genuine Parts and Mercedes-Benz Genuine Remanufactured Parts.”
