Why Diesel Cars Are Still Popular and Why You Should Consider Buying One

More and more people these days are talking about electric cars and hybrid engines for the sake of cutting down on fuel usage. However, petrol and diesel cars are still really popular and, in our opinion, will always remain relevant. Here’s why they’re still so popular and why you might consider buying one.

Diesel engines are surprisingly clean

Most people just lump all forms of fuel together, but the reality is that diesel engines are surprisingly clean. They’re not as clean as electric vehicles, but diesel fuel contains no lead and it generates fewer pollutants such as carbon monoxide when in use.

Thanks to selective catalytic reduction (SCR), diesel cars can also use solutions like AdBlue to further reduce nitrogen oxide emissions. This helps diesel vehicles fit within environmental regulations because they produce fewer emissions.

So if you’re concerned about a diesel vehicle ruining the environment–don’t be. Sure, it generates more emissions than electric vehicles, but there are many other advantages to a diesel car and you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your vehicle has technology inside of it to reduce emissions.

Diesel vehicles are great for heavy tasks

If you ever find yourself towing vehicles or needing the weight of your car to do something, then diesel vehicles are a great choice.

This is because diesel engines can produce higher torque at lower RPMs than other engines. This means they’re great for moving other vehicles like trailers and caravans. It also makes them excellent for carrying large and heavy items, such as furniture or appliances.

So if you need a durable vehicle that is capable of managing some serious weight, a diesel vehicle is usually a great option.

Diesel vehicles have great range

If you don’t like filling up your tank all the time then you might be happy to know that diesel engines have great range and efficiency.

Even if they have the same fuel tank size as a gasoline model of the same vehicle, it makes better use of the fuel and has far better efficiency. This means you can go really long distances with diesel vehicles. In fact, they’re well-known for their ability to handle long-distance commutes!

Diesel vehicles are reliable

Diesel engines tend to be surprisingly reliable. They can last a really long time because they’re built to handle the ignition cycle better than other engines, and the fuel itself gradually lubricates the engine as it runs. This means that the engines are really good at simply lasting a long time.

But with that said, it’s important to remember that you still need to take care of your diesel vehicle as well. This includes getting your truck ready for winter with different tires, or making sure all of the other components are in good condition and regularly maintained.

Diesel vehicles keep their value for longer

One of the unique things about diesel vehicles is the fact that they can hold their value for a surprisingly long time. According to studies, diesel cars and trucks depreciate slower, likely due to the more reliable engine and their wide range of uses.

All-new Jaguar F-Type Coupe & R

5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2. The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
