Diesel cars to outshine petrol cars soon
Diesel seems to be in the air. In the wake of escalating petrol prices, end users are now compelled to mull over alternate fuel-powered cars. Especially, in fast developing nations like India, majority of the people fall under middle-income group. For such people, it becomes difficult to accommodate escalating petrol prices. Considering the same fact, almost every leading automaker has incorporated diesel-driven cars in portfolio. In few years, automakers have begun laying more emphasis on developing cost-effective and efficient diesel cars. Growing interest of end-users towards such cars has encouraged automakers to do so. Looking at the interest of customers towards such cars, it appears that these cars may outshine petrol-driven cars in coming future.
Meanwhile, diesel cars such as Chevrolet Beat Diesel, newly launched Hyundai Grand i10, Nissan Micra and Swift Diesel attract car buyers who can shell out a little extra. Upcoming car Tata Nano Diesel is expected to break all barriers of mileage, power and performance. Though a diesel car is costlier by over Rs 1 lakh than a petrol car but for those who drive a car for more than 1500 kms per month, it is the best choice. Apart from this there are other benefits that a diesel car owner reaps compared to a petrol car buyer. Mileage is the first concern of any car buyer. Apparently, in terms of the mileage, diesel cars gain upper hand over petrol-driven cars. In addition to that, more and more companies are now incorporating much advanced technologies like turbocharger that are meant to increase the mileage and performance of engine.
When it comes to torque level, again diesel-driven car takes the lead over its opponent. Capability of pulling loads and acceleration depends on a torque up to a great extent. As diesel car is equipped with higher torque levels, engine of the same proves to be more powerful in comparison to other fuel means. Due to additional subsidies on diesel fuel, its price proves to be cheaper in comparison to petrol. In terms of withstanding harshness created due to higher compression, diesel car outperform petrol cars. If required emphasis is laid on maintenance of such car, it tends to last for a longer duration of time. Since, it is devoid of any ignition system of electronic fuel, it demands low maintenance work. Besides, when a car is in use, its owner can expect to reap above advantages. Besides that, when its owner plans to dispose it, he can expect higher resale value..
