Honda‘s CR-V may be still popular, but it’s growing long in the tooth. With a new one dropping later this year, Honda may be preparing a diesel version for sale in the booming market of India—and likely depending on the perilous adventure that is gas-price speculation, we may be getting one too.
Honda’s new diesel for the CR-V will be a 2.2-liter unit. But the company is also readying a sub-1.5 liter diesel engine for use in the Honda City (which we don’t get) and the Honda Jazz (which we get as the Fit).
The styling of the new CR-V mimics that of Honda’s current lineup, like a taller Crosstour (which is already a taller Accord). Expect all of this tallness to come full circle by the end of the year, diesel or not.
