GDI cars have unproven reliability. Diesels are super reliable and durable. Gassers have 30% more greenhouse gasses. I appreciate not having to rev to 15k every time the light turns green, in my traffic stop and go all the time x 1000. Torque power is completely different than horsepower in terms of the quality of driving. I don't drag race from corner to corner for some thrill. I just get smooth starts and merging response exactly when I need it.
