Mercedes will use Renault engines

Mercedes-Benz will use the new 130 hp 1.6 dCi Renault-Nissan Alliance’s new generation A and B-Class and the Stuttgart manufacturer will offer to exchange the 2.0-liter gasoline engine and the new V6 and V8 range.

French’s new turbo diesel engine will be used by Mercedes-Benz to its smaller models, particularly the new A-Class and B-Class, which will begin appearing next year, according to sources quoted by Autocar. The 1.6 dCi will give a power of 96 kW / 130 hp and 320 Nm.

In contrast, 2.0-liter gasoline engine and the new range will be used V6 and V8 models of the Renault-Nissan group. The brand will benefit most from this collaboration will be Infiniti, whose range seems IPL performance will bear the logo “Powered by AMG.

The two companies, Mercedes-Benz and Renault-Nissan Alliance, also is working with a new range of engines with three and four cylinder petrol and diesel models for Mercedes, Smart, Renault and Nissan.

Ranging between 1.2 and 1.8 liter engines will be “designed” built by Daimler and Renault. They will also be used by new-generation Mercedes A-Class and B-Class and the new Clio and Megane.

  1. I was shocked to learn Mercedes used Renault engines which I only found out after I bought my A Class. I have to say though, no issues and it is lovely to drive.

  2. You are lucky my daughter bought an A class recently and it’s in the garage for the second time and will have cost her around £500 by the time it’s repaired. I wouldn’t touch them with a barge pole. Mercedes is supposed to be reliable they are nothing more than a wolf in sheep’s clothing. You are not getting the Mercedes reliability anymore so why pay Mercedes prices

    • A class Mercedes is no Mercedes so don’t know why you’re shocked that you’re not getting any of Mercedes benefits with that vehicle. You have to pay way more to get proper Mercedes benefits – not buying a poor man’s Mercedes and wanting it to be like the real thing. A class is a tin can on wheels – like all compact cars. You get what you pay for

  3. In sum, Mercedes badge lovers feel ripped off. Don’t worry, people will only see a Mercedes from the outside, but inside is a different story.

  4. (the old)Mercedes were built to last… I have a very good friend working within Mercedes and he said, I quote:”They WILL fail you after 5 years no matter how well you take care of the car; it’s how they’re built” I am a HUGE Mercedes fan, but they breakdown and now have Dacia engines (cars that cost 30% of what a Merc costs) and I honestly believe you now have to be an idiot to buy them!! Avoid at all costs!!

  5. First and foremost, if you are financing a car….Especially a luxury car, you cant afford it. Period. (0% and all of that are gimmicks). What would you say to someone who financed a few Rolexes??????? Pretty stupid right.

    2nd, if your Mercedes is your “only” form of transportation…… I question your ability to function properly, and your education level. Guessing low. Probably not at least a Masters Degree…or if so, possibly in the “arts”.

    3rd, if your income is under 7 digits a year, and your not 100% fully funded for retirement, as your offspring and responsibilities taken care of and not relying on the system or other people, you should not hedge your best on purchasing a luxury vehicle.

    • 100% in agreement. To add to that, financing a watch is definitely better than financing a piece of tin (regardless of the brand). In some very, very rare cases, you might actually get one that will gain value in some point in the future and that will never be the case for a common car.

  6. I just found that out today, I have loss of power on my Mercedes c class 200D 2016 model, I have just booked it in the Mercedes garage for them to look at it. But when you pay Mercedes prices you expect a Mercedes engine

      • Mercedes uses 1.5 liter (e.g. engine in A180d) and 1.6 liter (e.g. engine in C200d) Renault diesel engines. For the 1.5 liter engine, Mercedes and Renault engines are almost exactly the same. For the 1.6 liter version, Mercedes has slight modifications for more refinement and power. Mercedes offers 136HP compared to 130HP in Renault for the lead engine. Refinement is indeed perceptible. Mercedes version (OM 626) is the first passenger diesel in the world to use steel pistons.
