REPORT: Mercedes to add four cylinder diesel to S-class
In dual turbocharged form, the little oil burner produces 201 hp and an ample 384 pound-feet of torque. The new model is expected to be badged as the S300 CDI and equipped with Mercedes' 7-speed automatic. It should perform reasonably well thanks to its ample torque. The biggest problem is apparently ensuring the smooth operation that S-class drivers expect. Don't count on ever seeing this version come to the U.S., though.
