More good news if you like higher mileage, lower emissions and cars graced by three-pointed stars. Mercedes-Benz will soon be offering not one, but two new BlueEfficiency diesel engines in their C-Class models. The C-Class is the “baby Mercedes”; they look like a real Mercedes, only smaller. Act like them too. Screwed together like a bank vault, lots of high tech gizmos, that sort of thing.
And now if the C-Class is your kind of car, you get three new diesel engine choices. There’s a 2.2-liter 4-banger diesel available with a single turbo that puts out 170 hp and a beefy 295 lb-ft of torque, and another 4 cylinder, this one featuring dual turbos, 204 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. Either engine sounds like fun, but I’ll take the second one, thank you very much.
