Yeah. There trying to get rid of the fuel thirsty petrols. Ford did the same thing with eco boost
Fuel thirsty? Seriously? I've done more than 1100 miles so far, and I'm averaging 40.2 mpg overall. Now calculate how many miles I'll need to do to recover the cost of the more expensive Diesel option.

Takes roughly a year and a half doing 12000 pa. But regardless. Diesel much nicer to drive with higher re sale here in good old diesel loving Ireland.

VAG diesel prices in the UK took a big hit after dieselgate, not sure if they have ever recovered.

According to WBAC my current car dropped over £1.5k in value in a month from just before to just after dieselgate hit. Before that it was around 500 per month

I agree with BigBoss. my 1.4 is not yet run in and I am more than happy with my K's consumption. Which , if anything like my Yetis, will decrease by 10% when it is run in (about 4-5K miles)
Ford eco boost is a joke. Slow and thirsty.
You certainly can't call a 1.4 K slow!
I only do 6k miles a year and don't tow so I would not have an 'oiler' as a present!

DIESEL BANS. Poppycock. Euro 6 emitters are v clean. Read the London 2019 proposals. Euro 6 exempt. If we all go back to petrol co2 will go through the roof again. Electric is the way forward but that's only realistic in maybe 20 years.

Seems like dealer bull to me they had a cancelled order so now they're selling the car.

Anyone know what the actual list price is on that? Doesn't seem like much of a bargain to me!

In my experience my dealer is not given to BS. Cars do sometimes become available from Skoda for many reasons.
With the extras this car has I just configured it at an OTR price of £30,740.
Still doesn't seem like a bargain? It does to me!

I disagree. I couldn't be happier getting rid of my Mercedes E class Diesel. Enjoying the whisper quiet Petrol engine now.

Your calculations are wrong. My car's quoted combined mileage is 44mpg, and the actual mileage I'm getting is less than 10% less, 40.2 mpg. So if we consider the equivalent Diesel at 52mpg (quoted mileage 56mpg), the fuel cost difference is £300 per year for 10000 miles pa. The difference in cost between 1.4 150PS Petrol and 2.0 150PS Diesel is £1815, meaning it'll take 6 years to break even. This is not calculating the cost of Adblue for Diesel.

I couldn't really give a monkeys about diesel against petrol. My last three cars I have had, have been diesel. This time, for one reason other or another I decided to go for the petrol alternative. I have no need to tow a vehicle anymore so do not need to have the power of the diesel. Others will have their own reasons for deciding which type and size of engine to go for and that will be their own choice. Why can't people leave it at that instead of trying to convince someone else, or indeed themselves for that matter that they have chosen the wrong engine.

I agree.

Electric is actually MUCH closer than you think, most manufacturers will have a (full) electric vehicle for sale by 2020, some already have them now.

Depends how you drive. The petrol is a bit gutless unless you stand on the pedal. I drove a, run in 2500 m on clock petrol 150 in my driving style and got 28 mpg. Real driving, once you stop worrying about fuel consumption, will be 30 vs 45+. It's a no brainer for me, plus the torque is so nice, diesel all the way. Oh and ad blue costs are negligible, £15 pa.

Yes, depends on how you drive. The petrol accelerates faster than Diesel (0-62mph) and I've never had to stand on the pedal. I've always got oodles of power on tap whenever I needed it. Did you ensure the car was at "normal" mode and not "Eco" when you test drove? With your driving style, you should select "Sports" mode.

A little bit confused why everyone is arguing about diesel vs petrol, benefits vary. Personally I thought Betamax was better than VHS.

I never said Diesel is rubbish, just had to defend Petrol when factually incorrect statements were made.

At what point did I say that you thought diesels were rubbish, I didn't! just being factual.

I never said you said that. :)

What I meant was that I was only defending Petrol and not slating Diesel. If Diesel suits your needs, so be it. It doesn't suit my needs. But I won't say Diesel is rubbish (in comparison with the other member who slated Petrol).

I'm not a mod, but hasn't this gone off topic?
