Diesels emit much more pollutants. 

Modern diesels have a lower environmental impact than other combustion engines. 


CO2 emissions are lower than a petrol vehicle. This selective catalytic reduction, with AdBlue, reduced nitrogen oxides (NOx).


With the infoduction of Euro 6 standards, Diesel engines have never been cleaner. ​

Diesel cannot be driven in low emission zones.

Following London's lead, other cities within the UK (Birmingham, Leeds, Southampton, Manchester and Bristol) are planning to introduce their own low emission zones. The newest diesels are the cleanest ever and all of ours comply with the very latest EURO 6 standards which means our cars can be driven anywhere in Europe without being charged.​

Diesels produce more noise and vibration.

Sequential direct fuel injection (taking place in stages) and variable combustion chambers considerably reduce the pressure rise acceleration, which contributes to quiet operation. 


The dual-mas flywheel, balancer shafts and a new engine mount techology further reduce noise and vibration levels.
