Recent reports have suggested that Nissan’s luxury sports arm Infiniti would be the biggest winner out of the tie-up, with talk suggesting future models in the Infiniti Performance Line would be powered by AMG engines.

But UK publication Autocar has revealed Mercedes will in return receive the new 95kW 1.6-litre diesel engine developed by the Carlos Ghosn-led Alliance.

The new engine is expected to make its debut in the new A-Class and B-Class ranges from next year.

It is also understood the two groups are collaborating on a range of smaller three- and four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines for use across the Renault, Nissan, Mercedes-Benz and smart ranges.
