Future Mercedes C-Class and Vito to use Renault engine

The German based automaker Mercedes-Benz will use a new diesel engine made by Renault on the future generations of the C-Class and Vito.

Renault and Mercedes-Benz have already signed an agreement a while back and that agreement will transform the future generation of the C-Class into a vehicle powered by a French engine. The model in question will use the 1.6 liter dCi Energy 130, which is already used on models like the Renault Megane, Renault Grand Scenic or the Nissan Qashqai, and it’s producing a total output of 130 HP. The unit is known internally as the R9M.

The new diesel engine signed by Renault will make its way under the hood of the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class generation, as the C 200 CDI. Despite the fact that the 1.6 dCi Energy 130 engine is known to be very economical, as we also found out in our test drives, the action may not be appreciated by Mercedes-Benz fans, who are considering Renault’s products inferior compared to the ones used these days on the German vehicles. Besides the future C-Class, the upcoming Vito will also use the same 1.6 dCi Energy 130 engine, with its 130 HP (96 kW) at 4,000 rpm and 320 Nm of torque (236 lb-ft), available at 1,750 rpm.
