Stuttgart-based Mercedes-Benz has the world's longest diesel history, which shouldn't come as a surprise, being that they're the same folks who also have the longest car tradition. It was in 1936 when MB first introduced the 260D, a car way ahead of the curve, delivering spirited performance and better mpg's from diesel, a fuel that had never before powered a car. Next came the first turbo diesel in 1977, followed by the common rail direct injection in 1997 and, as is their nature, Mercedes continues to reinvent the alternative fuel that offers higher torque and efficiency with up to 30% lower greenhouse-gas emissions than gasoline

The newest evolution of the diesel tradition, the BlueTEC models offered today are simply the world's most advanced diesels available, offering ultra-low emissions, high fuel economy and responsive performance. BlueTEC denotes engines equipped with advanced NOx reducing technology which includes a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system. In Europe, where roughly half of new vehicles sell with diesel engines, Mercedes offers several of the fuel sippers, including the 2.1 and 1.8-liter engines listed in the models below. The turbocharged 2.1-liter inline-four diesel makes 190 horsepower and 1.8-liter variant measures up with about 136 horsepower. Both engines produce impressive response around town; they're unruffled on the highway, and boast mileage figures up into the hybrid range. The good news is the demand for these extremely frugal, yet powerful diesel engines has spread to the U.S., where the 2.1-liter engine is now available in the 2013 GLK-Class.
The new Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, as well as the A and B-Class are all built on the same compact car platform and their diesel engines have inspired drivers in the U.K. and throughout Europe for the past couple of years. And now both diesel engine options can instantly, and effortlessly, improve overall performance with a K&N 33-2996 reusable air filter upgrade.
