Is Mercedes-Benz using Renault engines?

Is the engine in the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class 220 CDI a Renault unit? I know the 180 CDI is.

Hi Riccardo,

No, it's not. You're quite right that the 1.5-litre CDI engine in the A 180 model is derived from Renault's long-serving dCi engine, but the 220 CDI unit is Mercedes' own 2.1-litre four-cylinder engine in 170hp trim.
