It's official. Diesel cars are now outselling their petrol equivalents for the first time. Buyers just seem to love the idea of a fuel efficient car combined with low emissions.
Fans of diesel mpg figures will be happy to hear that manufacturers are keen to offer us a wide choice in 2011.
While the diesel engine in the original rebooted Mini was poor, it has improved with each generation. For the car's mild facelift this September, buyers will now have two new diesel engines to choose from. The hatchback versions of the Mini One D and Cooper D will achieve a stonking 74.3mpg, also dodging road-tax with emission levels of just 99g/km.
For Mondeo man, the revised 2011 version of the classic repmobile will feature the company's most powerful diesel engine yet, a 2.2-litre TDCi.
More 'upmarket' types can indulge in the revised Lexus IS200d that will replace the IS220d and offer sharper looks, better economy and lower emissions.
Crossover fans will be catered for by Nissan's Murano which now has its first ever diesel engine. Pseudo-4x4 buyers can enjoy the new BMW X3 that will be diesel-only at launch.
The effortlessly brilliant Range Rover TDV8 just got even more brilliant. Engine capacity has grown from 3.6-litres to 4.4 yet fuel economy is better and emissions are down.
