Pricewatch: petrol v diesel

FLEET NewsNet takes a look at how new cars you take onto your fleet might perform over the next three years and 60,000 miles.

Using data from used car expert CAP Motor Research, we benchmark two cars against each other to see how they perform over the traditional fleet cycle. This week, we look at two of the industry’s most popular contenders, the Ford Mondeo and Vauxhall Vectra, equipped with the latest diesel technology. Our figures show they are incredibly close on value.
