The mileage may not be accurate at all considering the are talking about UK cars since the US versions do not exist.
However, 52 could be right considering 60+ was bandied about earlier. People will not be impressed by 42 MPG highway after looking at a big price premium.

I think 52 was right. I just went to Honda UK and the combined mpg is 52 brit. So 52 x .8 apprx =42 US combined. But....their accord is smaller w/ a 2.2 diesel. Think our diesel will be 2.4 + the US Accord is larger. I think the diesel premium may be about $1500. I certainly plan to buy one. I'll just get it in the CRV. Don't want 194" in my garage.

No use at guessing what pricing might be without facts.
In addition, the pricing difference will be much bigger than MSRP shows if you can buy a 2009 LX gas 4 cylinder for $500 over invoice and have to pay around full sticker for a 2009 diesel that year if they are built in low numbers.

I'll probably try to wait 'em out till I can get a reasonable deal.
