In 2018, it is planned to update the Mercedes-Benz C-class sedan. The media reported on the power plants with which this model will be equipped. In China, Beijing Benz manufactures engines for Mercedes for the domestic market.
Precise data on what exactly this will be the power unit, yet. The fact that it will be equipped with a turbo system, you should not doubt. Today, the smallest in the C-class engine line is the engine, the volume of 1,6 l and the power of 156 hp, which is equipped with the modification of the 180, as well as its de-bounced version with a power of up to 129 hp mounted on the C160 sedan.
It is possible that the new engine will be developed exclusively for the Chinese market - there is a progressive taxation scheme, in which the amount of tax depends on the volume of the power plant.
The new engine will be produced in the smallest volume that has ever been installed on Mercedes-Benz cars in its entire history. Before the Second World War, the W130 was produced, which was also equipped with an 1,3-liter engine. In our time, the smallest engine with the emblem of the three-beam star is the 1,4-liter engine with the power of 82 hp, installed on the A-class.
