Best Diesel Alternatives

by Diminished Value Car Appraiser on April 30, 2013

Diesel is the new gas… or so what European makers want you to believe. But with gas prices soaring in recent months, fuel sipping diesels have become a better solution.

Let’s take look and see the top 3 diesel vehicles that make sense to buy:

Number 1:

Mercedes GL
Cost of vehicle increase when compared with a gasoline counterpart: <$1,770>
This vehicle is the only one in our list where the vehicle cost is cheaper when choosing a diesel.
Gas MPG: 15
Diesel MPG: 19
So, not only is it cheaper but will deliver a 26% better fuel economy. a true WIN-WIN.

Number2:

Audi A3
Cost of vehicle increase when compared with a gasoline counterpart: $1,500 or 10%
Gas MPG: 24
Diesel MPG: 34
MPG Gain: 41% (two years of driving will offset initial cost increase)
