What is this discussion about?
Honda Accord, Diesel
Dec 08, 2009 (9:25 am)
From my observations, most of the CR-V's here in UK are 2.2 i-CTDi diesels. 138bhp/251lbft seems to work pretty well. Same engine appears in the Civic, (and the now-defunct FR-V), but the Accord gets the 2.2 i-DTEC with 148bhp/258lbft.
If you're not familiar with it, the FR-V was a 6 seat 5-door hatch/SUV similar in size to the CR-V; just a little narrower; 2 rows of "smart" 3-abreast seats and lots of kit..............it just didn't sell too well, hence it was killed off.

Honda is starting to lose my respect. Dropping the diesel and adding guzzlers like the new crossovers are really hurting them in my eyes.
A diesel Accord wagon would be an absolute segment buster. More interior space than most SUV's with better mpg than a Civic. All without clumsy SUV handling and braking. No brainer to me - just don't get how hardly anybody else sees this.

I agree. Like how could they release the Crosstour and not make a 4-cylinder engine available? It is V-6 only! Venza has a 4-cylinder, Outback has a 4-cylinder. Honda is barely trying these days....

Even the next generation Sienna minivan will have an available 4-cyl engine.
Honda is not alone though. Mazda was pretty boneheaded with the 6 wagon only having a V-6. It was about the perfect vehicle for me but I did not consider it because the mpg was worse than my wifes V-6 minivan. Wound up with an Accord I-4 stick that has averaged 34.5 mpg over 76,000 miles (yes I figure every tank). A diesel wagon would be better than my vehicle in just about every way.
Lets see the innovation from the CVCC days Honda. Bring us a diesel and drop the overweight barges.
