Spain is characterized by having the oldest car park in Europe, and that results in bad smoke, cars that do not cease to break down and reviews in the annual periodic ITV. Therefore, perhaps more than one is already seriously considering acquiring a new vehicle and messing up these setbacks with your car.
However, the Spaniards who decided to buy a new one, continue to opt for diesel fuels that are, as we all know, the most polluting and, in addition, they begin to be very badly looked at in some European cities as we will see later.
Therefore, with the aim of throwing a cable and answering questions about it, in our urgent loan comparator we have decided to write an article in which we will explain what we should value in a car when deciding to buy it. We see it?
Diesel or gasoline?
To date, diesel vehicles tend to consume less with respect to their gasoline counterpart. Although we must also keep in mind that the latter are usually cheaper models. Thus, we can talk about 2,000 euros above its brothers in the same range of gasoline range.
Therefore, it would be necessary to drive – and much – to compensate for this initial price difference. So if it is not our idea to get on the road quite often, we better discard this option.
Nor does its maintenance provide us with many joys, since the greater complexity of its engine demands that we strive more. Thus, it costs us an average of 640 euros over 10 years.
The car insurance joins the feast, because on average it costs 50 euros more. That is, 500 euros that we have accounted for over 10 years. Are you adding?
To top it off, there are cities that have already vetoed their access by 2025 – that’s just around the corner – to diesel vehicles such as Paris, Athens or Mexico City. For its part, Germany intends to advance the date to this same 2017. So it does not seem very wise to bet on a technology whose use is beginning to be banned from the main cities of the world.
Likewise, and if you still doubted, a progressive tightening of the emission rates imposed by the European Union is expected. Such circumstance will affect its manufacturing and selling price. Nor will it be strange for a politician to decide to make diesel taxes more expensive. Something that, as it is rumored, has already been about to happen with the current president Mariano Rajoy.
In sum, if we debate between these two fuels, the clear bet is gasoline. Now it is worth wondering if the latter would be victorious in a melee with hybrid or electric cars. We will study it right away.
Gasoline, hybrid or electric?
If you have already ruled out the diesel option, and you think gasoline is your thing, we inform you that hybrids can be a very interesting option.
In this sense, if you are interested in the latter, we suggest you inform yourself about whether the model you have taken a look at is recommended more for the city or prepared for the road.
Regarding consumption, try to spend 1.5 or 2 liters. Of course they are more expensive than the previous ones, but they enjoy tax advantages and benefits.
On the other hand, if we feel like a pure electric, it is undoubtedly all its advantages: it pollutes less, tax benefits, free blue areas and parking lots, also exemptions in some tolls …
But, yes, they are more expensive at first although there are aids and, in addition, we talk about cars whose maintenance is very low, because they break down much less than conventional ones.
Keep in mind that the Movea Plan 2016 has come to offer up to € 5,500 of subsidy for the purchase of an electric vehicle.
Setting aside the means of propulsion of the car, another factor is its capacity and size. Not surprisingly, we must keep in mind the real needs and the use that will be given to the vehicle.
Do not forget that a smaller size also means lower fuel consumption, as well as more parking facilities. Also maintenance is usually cheaper. So keep these aspects in mind in your purchase.
