Competitive pricing? :eek:
Ha ha, for a petrol engined vehicle this will still not do the magic for them!
A great car that could have sold by the lakhs was thwarted due to lack of a diesel power plant! :rolleyes:

It does looks very attractive to me, I always preferred petrol and that 20 lakh brakcet is very nice, is that AWD?


Edit: just checked Honda India site, 2L one is 2WD, poor pricing, and 170mm GC, they call it SUV? :(

By the time Honda comes up with a diesel engine, the diesel prices will be at par, if not more, than petrol prices in India :grin:
With mileage figures for petrol CRV hovering around pathetic 6-7 kmpl, it's high time Honda realises that Petrol SUV's are an extinct species in 20 lacs+ segment. Add to this the insurance, registration, extended warranty cost...it will easily touch +25 lacs threshold. And at this price, Toyota Fortuner makes the perfect kill.

Theoretically, it makes sense. But wish this was true practically too, in our ‘foreverly diesel skewed’ SUV market. Apart from Honda CRV, how many petrol SUVs one can recall? (guess there are just 3 more petrol SUVs in this segment…Maruti Grand Vitara, Mitsubishi Outlander, BMW X1). And their dismal failure to capture both market and petrol head’s hearts is not even worth mentioning
And today’s modern diesel engines are far more refined, efficient and torquey, in line with what one would want in their SUVs at this price segment.
 
Honda has missed the trick again. An SUV without a diesel engine option just don't make any sense. Yes, as YS mentioned, petrol SUVs could be reasonable success but only in even higher segment, say 50 lakhs plus. Heck, even Porsche has given in to to market trend and has offered a diesel option. India is a huge market and there's no doubt that CR-V will still sell at this price and the current line-up of petrol engines but it just won't be able to rack up sufficient numbers to make it a profitable venture.

A diesel engine is a far more energy efficient proposition. Quite apart from other advantages it may have there is a strong case for adopting these engines for their efficiency alone!
