Buying a diesel SUV for Rs 65 lakh: should you worry about diesel ban?

Mercedes Benz GLA diesel front quarter

We are planning to buy a car with a budget of around Rs 65 lakh, and ground clearance, performance and fuel efficiency are my main priorities. I drive around 55km on average daily, and need a small vehicle due to the small roads in our neighbourhood.

Options were the Mercedes GLA, BMW X1, Audi Q3 and Volvo XC40. We aren’t considering the XC40, and booked the GLA 220d 4Matic. Now, however, there’s news of diesel getting banned. Should I go ahead with the purchase?

Autocar India says: There has been talk of a diesel ban for a while, but we don’t think it will come into effect. Even if it does, it will be for new cars and not those already on the road. Hence, you don’t have to worry about the legality of your GLA 220d once you register it.
