Buying Second-Hand Diesel Car

Seriously tempted to pull the trigger on buying a 2nd-hand diesel from 2014 (Euro 5 emissions rating). However, I'm hesitating somewhat due to recent bans on pre Euro 6 vehicles in German cities and the outright ban on sales of petrol and diesel cars in UK from 2030, the recent measures taken in Geneva.

So I wanted to canvas some opinion on here. How quickly do people think things will move here in Switzerland, in terms of measures to penalize diesel drivers, and in terms of a collapse in second-hand values? Bit scared about dropping a 5 figure sum on a diesel car now. Would like to sell it on in 3-4 years, and it would be nice if it had some kind of resale value left.
