A new report from Autocar says that Mercedes-Benz is plotting a return of the inline-six engine for their lineup. The inline-six will be a part of a new modular engine architecture that will also produce inline-three and inline-four engines as well. These new engines are expected to debut in the next-generation E-Class, due out in 2016. The 2017 C-Class is expected to get these engines as well.
Mercedes-Benz was well known for its inline-six engines as they defined the brand. In mid-nineties, the brand decided to phase them out for V6 engines.
