But you know, some people simply look at the power figures and ignore any benefit a no-frills Diesel could get them.

And a stronger sales argument for the automakers.
the frills with a diesel like this is in the calm you get when driving because you cannot hurry even if you try LOL and the easy/cheap maintenance (and also low fuel consumption)

people today want to hurry everywhere, preferably in a car that drive itself and drives very fast, turbo is better for people like that...

the thing i can say about dieselhaters is: try to smell the exhaust of a old diesel that runs on wvo/svo, never heard anyone complain about that haha
