Countries where government taxes on the displacement of car engines exist might suffer a slight blow in terms of Mercedes-Benz A 200 CDI sales starting with February 2014.
We say this because the aforementioned model is currently equipped with a 1.8-liter engine that will soon be replaced by a more modern version of the tried and tested 2.1-liter engine.

The reason for the switch is the fact that it would be more expensive to retrofit the 1.8-liter with Euro 6-friendly emissions technology, while the larger engine is already Euro 6 compliant in cars like the new C 200 BlueTec or the GLA 200 CDI.

In terms of power and torque, both engines are exactly the same, offering 136 hp and 300 Nm (221 lb ft) of torque, while the fuel consumption will be similar, so the only upgrade for the future customers is the fact that they will pollute less.

There is no word of a pricing modification so far, as the Mercedes-Benz A 200 CDI currently starts at EUR 28,143.50 in Germany.
