I live in germany.
And before you ask. The fastest i have ever drove was 170mph in a biturbo tuned BMW 525 E34.
Diesel is around 0,7-1$ cheaper per gallon here. Don't know what the price difference is in the USA, but in Germany we always try to get the best mpg. 6-6.5$ per gallon diesel and 7-7.5$ per gallon gas.
MB has the clean E300CDI and so.
Here we have the E200CDI 136HP, E220CDI 170 HP, E250CDI 204HP, E300CDI 224HP and the E320CDI 258HP.
Audi has diesels between 140HP and 375HP. BMW 116HP and 313HP.
Even the VW Golf has 3 different diesel engines. 105HP to 184HP.
Many modells have more diesel engine options than gas engine options here. And in some cases the diesel is the strongest available engine.
And we all love the torque of the diesels.
The last 5 years we have the downsizing dogma here. Not good. Really not good. Only small 3 and 4 cylinder engines with turbos are invented.
Ford has a new engineline here. 1l 3cylinder with turbo and up to 160HP.
Or VAG 2l 4cyl with up to 350HP. All gas.
Diesels are better. Not so many HP but much more torque.
Okay. The next VW Passat will get a 2l TDI with biturbo and 234HP. Much HP per litre for a diesel.
