Honda is planing several Diesel models for the United States in the next few years, one of them is Honda’s entry level SUV, the CR-V. It will be using the 2.2L i-CTDi engine. This four cylinder diesel is already used in Hondas in Europe, and is used in cars like the CR-V, Civic, and Accord. It produces 138hp and 250lb-ft of torque. The European version of the Honda CR-V diesel gets a Combined 36mpg, making it one of the most fuel efficient compact suvs you can get. With fuel cost being so high right now and showing no signs of dropping, this diesel CR-V will find a lot of happy new owners here in the states. In 2007, this 3rd Generation CR-V was the best selling SUV in the U.S. The base price of a CR-V at the posting of this article is $20,700. The diesel will be a little more expensive I’m guessing in the $24,000 range. It will be a direct competitor to the Volkswagen Tiguan.
