The Diesel Debate - Which Fuel is Right for Me?

Thursday, 27 July 2017 at 1.40pm

Choosing your next Honda

There has been much debate about diesel cars and their emissions, both CO2, NOx and particulates. In order to make a decision on your next car, you need to understand these emission types and how they relate to the sort of driving you do:

  • CO2 - contributes to global warning and is a threat to the planet
  • NOx and particulates - affect local air quality and are an urban challenge

Diesel cars produce less CO2 than Petrol, which is beneficial for our fight against global warming, but petrol cars produce less NOx and particulates, which is beneficial for tackling local air quality. Therefore we believe that every driver should purchase the car that works best for their journey, profile and lifestyle:

  • Think Diesel - if you drive long distances on the motorway or are generally a high mileage driver
  • Think Petrol - if you live in a city and mainly do short journeys inside the city or are generally a low mileage driver

The new 2012 Honda Civic will feature a cleaner, more powerful and economical diesel engine to deliver lower running costs for owners.

Improvements to Honda's 2.2-litre i-DTEC engine, coupled with a low-drag body design, mean the new 2012 Civic emits only 110 g/km of CO2 - while producing a powerful 150 PS and 350 Nm of torque.

This new lower CO2 figure signals a drop of 29g/km over the outgoing model and will enable customers to benefit from free road tax for the first year (and only £20 per year from then on), as well as cheaper fuel bills. Meanwhile, company car drivers will be able to take advantage of BIK tax rates among the lowest for a small family car.
