According to the engineers of Mercedes, the 9G-TRONIC feature higher number of gears and has a wider gear ratio, which helps to augment drive placate and allows a momentous development to be accomplished by renovating muscle into toehold.  In other aspects the reduction in engine velocity, slightly progresses the NVH console plane and therefore will have every less clamor.
