Mercedes-Benz won’t offer a diesel-powered C-Class in the United States.

Mercedes-Benz will stop selling the C-Class diesel from 2017

The automaker was to start sales of a C300d during 2016 but has since scrapped those plans. The C300d was to be powered by a turbocharged 2.1-liter inline-4 delivering 201 horsepower to all four wheels.



Speaking with Car and Driver, Mercedes said the extra hoops diesel cars now have to jump through for U.S. certification mean it will only focus on vehicles with higher demand for diesel powertrains, such as large SUVs.
