Honda India has no plans to launch the diesel-powered CR-V in India anytime soon.
Honda’s all-new revolutionary 1.6-litre i-DTEC diesel engine that was first unveiled last year, has now made its debut in the Euro-spec CR-V. This latest engine is first of the new generation engines to power future Honda models under the "Earth Dreams Technology" banner.
With 120PS of power and 300Nm of torque on tap, the 1.6-litre i-DTEC engine seems fairly potent and should have more than enough grunt for the CR-V. However, the biggest advantage of this engine is its supremacy towards lightness and efficiency above all else, with Honda claiming that it is the lightest diesel engine in its class.
While the diesel-powered CR-V is already on its way into the European markets, Honda India has no plans to bring it to the Indian market. Here in India, the latest-generation CR-V straddles a whole lot of segments. It in fact competes against a range of vehicles including Toyota Fortuner, Mitsubishi Outlander and Mahindra SsangYong Rexton. But thanks to the local assembly, the CR-V is now more competitive than ever.
