    SUV Petrol vs Disel Value 16th Apr 18 at 6:22 AM

    I am intending to start family in the future and therefor intend to purchase a SUV.

    The Mazda CX5 was the SUV of choice for the best in price range and class of SUV. Unfortunately the Petrol has no grunt, so I was going to purchase the SUV as a Diesel with a loan.

    The reason for the Loan vs PHP is down to flexibility as I can change Trade it or sell for something else within the next four years if I wanted and I am not tied any agreement with mileage caps etc.

    The Mazda CX5 is EURO6 approved but obviously with the governmentís recent announcement relating to Diesels and the drop in sales I am nervous about purchasing a Diesel now.

    I fear it wonít be worth much in 4 yearsí time when the loan is paid, there wonít be much demand for Diesels or it wonít be worth as much if I want to trade it in and swop it within the next 4 years.

    Obviously Diesels tend to be the best choice within the SUV market, but I am now considering if I would be bettering buy a different SUV in Petrol due to the Diesel issue. Perhaps a Seat Ateka or something.

    Any advice would be appreciated as I am really concerned and confused at the moment. Itís a lot of money to spend and I donít want to make the wrong decision.

    Remember AWD crossovers are not the same as 4WD. If you are going off road, best get a 4WD.
