Three Sexy New Diesels that Won't Break the Bank

Motoring.co.uk has trawled through its extensive database to reveal three sexy new diesels that won't break the bank.

Motoring.co.uk has trawled through its extensive database to reveal three sexy new diesels that won't break the bank. First for consideration is the Mercedes C250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY Sport 4d. This executive plaything comes with a 204bhp 2.2-litre diesel engine which propels the C250 to 62mph in 7 seconds and on to a maximum 149mph.

These performance figures are remarkable when you consider the C250's instinctive aversion to gas guzzling. This stylish saloon returns a combined average of 55.4mpg, and up to 67.3mpg on the extra-urban cycle. Motoring.co.uk's car finance section reveals the C Class is available, on a personal contract purchase plan with a £3,399 deposit, for thirty-six payments of £299 at 5.9% APR.

The next contender under the spotlight is the Audi A5 2.0-litre TDI. This is arguably one of the most stunningly attractive vehicles on the market. This metallic super-model produces 170bhp and hits 62mph in a respectable 8.7 seconds. Combined fuel consumption is 54.3mpg which is impressive for a powerful hatchback the size of a supermarket. The A5 range is listed in Motoring.co.uk's database with 'buy safe' sellers from a cash price of £24,245.

The final fashionable diesel making an appearance is the BMW Alpina D3 2.0-litre Bi-Turbo. This magnificent machine is hugely desirable as it is both furiously fast and fastidiously frugal. Stationary to 62mph takes 6.9 seconds and the Alpina returns a combined average of 50.4mpg. Combine this with rock-solid construction and a fashionable badge and this Germanic beast makes perfect sense. Motoring.co.uk's database reveals the Alpina is available from a cash price of £30,602.
