What is Blueefficiency?

It used to be anything with the Blue moniker means diesel. Now it applies to petrol cars as well and gets confusing. Is it just a marketing gimmick?

I heard that the cars turn off the engine when they are at a standstill.

From: Mercedes C-Class models - better fuel efficiency with greater performance

"The C 180 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY direct-injection petrol engine develops 115kW (156hp) and the manual transmission gets to 100kmh half a second faster than the previous automatic model in 9.0 seconds.

"The ECO start/stop function in the vehicles stops the engine automatically when coasting up to traffic lights and as soon as its speed falls below 8kmh, or once the driver hits the brake pedal and moves the gear lever into neutral. The engine starts immediately when the driver presses the accelerator or clutch pedal. Availability of the ECO start/stop function is indicated on the instrument cluster. The new Mercedes-Benz C 220 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY model with a six-speed manual transmission has an output of 125kW (170hp) and a peak torque of 400Nm, racing from 0-100kmh in 8.4 seconds. Yet its combined fuel consumption is just 4.4L/100kmh.

The new C 220 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY with ECO start/stop function is therefore the most fuel-efficient C-Class of all time."
