Exclamation Re: Detroit Motor Show

The new Class looks nice. Looking at the engine specs I see that the next generation engines whilst plated as a 2 litre , may not be. The torque drops from 400 NM to 350NM. Perhaps a 1.6 Renault unit with a lot of boost ?
The A200 I drove went well enough ,plenty of power from 1.6 , but lacked torque.
I'm reminded of a comment by a builder of Touring Car Engines...... H.P. sells engines but torque wins Races. My current 1.8 C 200 has a lot of torque compared to the 1.6 A200. It is very noticeable . And could be one of the reasons for the nine speed Auto being mated with the new engine.
The proof of the pudding as they say !.......Sean
