Just a few years ago, the idea of driving a diesel cabrio was somewhat outrageous as it was, basically, impossible to get one. But diesels have evolved a lot, and modern powertrains almost match gasoline cars in terms of sound-proofing and comfort while keeping fuel consumption down. The only issue is that these models, and correct me if I'm wrong, are only available for Europeans, where taxes on fuels and purchase schemes based on CO2 emission levels.

So if you wanted to have a look at these diesel options for European consumers, follow us after the jump. There's a little something for everybody, from the Jeep to the Smart.
