Where is the U.S.-Spec Mercedes-Benz C-Class Diesel?

Mercedes-Benz was planning to introduce a diesel engine for the U.S.-market C-Class earlier this year. But nothing has appeared. What is going on? This story is originally published by Will Maley at TorqueNews.com.

Automotive News (Subscription Required) decided to get to the bottom of this story and found out that the Mercedes-Benz is making plans to launch the C-Class diesel sometime next year.
“The latest plan is sometime in 2017 (mid-2017 is a reasonable estimate, not firm), but this is certainly subject to change,” said Rob Moran, a spokesman for Mercedes-Benz.

Why the long wait? It comes down to the EPA putting more scrutiny into emission tests for diesel vehicles after it was found out that Volkswagen was using illegal software to cheat. Mercedes-Benz isn't the only the automaker dealing with this. A few weeks ago, it was reported that BMW isn't able to sell their diesel vehicles as they are still undergoing EPA tests.
It is expected that Mercedes will also launch diesel versions of the GLC and GLS SUVs sometime in 2017.

A Front-Wheel Drive Mercedes-Benz Roadster?

Jul 18, 2016 - 7:47 PM - by TorqueNews
As Mercedes-Benz begins to reduce the number of architectures it uses for their vehicles, an interesting question pops up: Could Mercedes-Benz do a front-wheel drive roadster? Will Maley reports from TorqueNews.com.

Crazy?! Not so when you consider the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class and GLA-Class use a front-wheel drive architecture. A possible candidate could be the next-generation SLC roadster.

“A front-wheel-drive roadster is a very different animal,” said Mercedes-Benz chief Dr. Dieter Zetsche to CarAdvice when asked about the SLC possibly moving to a front-wheel drive platform.

There is some method to this possible madness as more and more buyers are drifting towards sedans and crossovers. This is turn means not as many roadsters are being sold and causing an automaker to lose money, something Zetsche is aware of.

“Going forward, we all know there are big expansions in the auto industry, and those expansions are more to sedans and SUVs than sports cars. Within this climate, we have to look also at our coupes and convertibles and roadsters,” said Zetsche.

But not many people buy a roadster because its drive layout. They buy it for the design, something Zetsche points out.

“Especially the Mercedes-Benz long hood and the long space between the wheel and the front door, which is a signature. That is very much learned, and inherent to the brand.”
