This is not about expanding the range of engines, but about updating it. Some powertrains may disappear to meet new environmental standards.

The German auto giant Mercedes-Benz shared information on updating its engines. The most important announcement is that the 1.5d 180d diesel engine will no longer be installed on new Mercedes cars. Now this motor is used in A-Class, B-Class cars and one of the CLA trim levels. Such a power plant has a return of 116 hp. and works together with 6-speed manual transmission or 7-speed automatic transmission depending on the chosen complete set.

A replacement for this engine will be a 2.0-liter diesel engine, which is used in Mercedes 150- and 190-horsepower diesel engines. Such a power plant will work exclusively with an 8-speed automatic.

Compared with the previous modification, the torque will be increased by 20 Nm to an indicator of 280 Nm. But the return of the power plant will be unchanged.

 Information also appeared on the future 1.5-liter diesel engine with a return of 95 hp, which is used only in A-Class models. This power plant, apparently, will be discontinued. The main reason is the need to comply with the new Euro 6D environmental standard.
