Diesel Cars

Diesel cars are becoming more and more popular in New Zealand due to their fuel efficiency and longevity. They have a lower cost of ownership than their petrol counterparts, as they tend to use less fuel, require fewer oil changes and generally need less maintenance.

In terms of performance, diesel cars are typically more torquey than their petrol counterparts which means they are great for towing and handling steep hills or rugged terrain. Diesel engines tend to operate at lower RPMs compared to petrol engines so there is a good chance that the engine will last longer if you take care of it properly.

Another great benefit of diesel cars is that they emit less carbon dioxide than their petrol equivalents. This makes them an environmentally friendly choice, something many New Zealanders value. Diesel vehicles also offer good gas mileage (km/l) compared to gasoline-fueled cars.

When choosing a diesel car for New Zealand roads, it's important to consider factors such as weather conditions, road terrain, and the distance you plan on driving. The extra weight and improved fuel economy can make diesels ideal for long journeys or commuting long distances.

One downside of diesel engines is the initial expense of purchasing the vehicle; however, this expense can be offset by reduced running costs over time - particularly with the latest generation models with high levels of energy efficiency which allow motorists significant savings in terms of both time and money.

To sum up: diesel cars have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their better fuel efficiency compared with their petrol-powered equivalents; greater durability owing to typically low engine operating RPMs; environmental benefits such as reduced carbon emissions; improved pulling power making them a good option for towing; whilst considering purchase decisions it is recommended drivers bear local New Zealand factors such as road types in mind in making sure any diesel vehicle they purchase meets their specific needs before committing funds.
