Dacia Duster Essential Blue dCi 110 4x2 £13,695

Like its fellow Dacia models, the Duster is a lot of car for not a lot of money. It’s only front-wheel drive in its least expensive diesel form here, but if you need the security of four-wheel drive you can add it for £1145, that pushing it up to £14,840. 

Like its relations it’s a no-frills vehicle, with hard, though admittedly tough wearing, interior trim and not a huge amount - read no - design flair inside. Instead Dacia gives you decent equipment levels, the DAB radio tuner having Bluetooth connectivity while safety equipment includes driver, front passenger and side airbags plus a tyre pressure monitoring system.

Is the old adage that "Typically diesel models are more expensive to buy than their petrol relations, but if you're covering big distances every year, they will be cheaper to run." still true?

With the demonisation of diesels coupled with the introduction of tiny, fuel efficient petrol engines, I have seen diesel prices fall and are now much closer to petrol prices. In a few cases, they can be even cheaper than petrol cars.

I m thinking of buying a diesel car but don't do high mileage. Reason I want it is for a 2nd car which may be used as a towing vehicle.
