The Best Diesel Car…in the World!Fri, 10 May 2013
So when Diesel Car Magazine proclaims its winners each year it’s something car buyers are likely to take notice of next time they’re in the market for a new car, so it’s worth having a look at what came out on top.
The VW Golf Mk 7 TDI took the gong for the best diesel car of 2013 (as well as best Medium diesel car), snatching the award out of the hands of Land Rover”s Range Rover Evoque, which won in 2012 (and wins best crossover diesel this year).
Many of the cars that won an award have been on the list of winners before – like the Jaguar XF which is the best executive diesel for the fifth time and the Land Rover Discovery 4 which makes best diesel 4×4 for the fourth time – but there are new winners too with the Kia Cee’d Sportswagon winning best estate and the Ford B-Max grabbing the gong for best diesel MPV.
The full list of winners is below which will help if you’re in the market for a diesel, but before you use it as a default guide for your next new car, do look at the petrol alternatives; if you’re a private motorist, doing average mileage, a petrol engine is a much better bet.
Overall Winner: VW Golf Diesel
