Buying a car can be an exciting time if only for the anticipation of driving your new baby on the road! Where do you start though when it comes to choosing what car to get?
For some it’s simple, their hearts are set on a certain model and there’s no discussion to be had. For others it’s all about the cost, the cheaper the better. Dare we say for others; it might just be a colour thing!
If you’re the calculating type, a host of factors might come into play when you’re making your decision. Its performance, its environmental footprint, and of course whether the car is petrol powered or diesel.
Diesel cars tend to be more expensive to buy than petrol versions in the first place. However, they’re often cheaper to tax thanks to their lower CO2 emissions. They may also yield better fuel economy too.
Some people report that they’ve found diesel cars more expensive to insure than petrol cars. Were they just unlucky or is there a trend here?
