Diesel tremendously helps reduce CO2 emissions, they emit on average 20% lower CO2 than the petrol equivalent. Since 2002 diesel cars have saved more than 3.5 million tonnes of CO2 from going into the atmosphere.
Diesels are also better for towing and can tow heavier loads compared to petrol alternatives, this is because they have more torque (that’s more pulling power). This is especially beneficial for caravan and horse owners, as you will be able to tow your trailer with ease.
As diesel cars don’t need to be revved as much and give better acceleration, this makes diesels feel more powerful and this is great for pulling off, as diesel ignites under compression whereas petrol needs a spark, it makes it harder to stall. In addition to being more economical and easier to drive, diesel cars benefit with having lower CO2 emissions, so road tax is usually cheaper as well.
