Geneva Live – Honda CR-V with 1.6L iDTEC diesel engine revealed


Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!

Honda has taken the wraps off the new Diesel CR-V for European markets. You may be aware that there was already a diesel CR-V on sale. So what’s so special about this one?

This Honda CR-V Diesel is powered by a 1.6L diesel engine which features the class leading EarthDreams technology. The engine is good for 120 PS and 300Nm of torque.

This is the same engine that powers the Civic in UK. It is the lightest engine in its class and weighs 47kg less than the donor 2.2-litre i-DTEC powerplant. It also has lesser mechanical friction than its higher capacity big brother.

Thanks to reduced friction and lesser weights, the 1.6 L mill offers a perfect balance of performance and economy. It also has an ECON mode which helps to minimize fuel consumption

The Eco Assist system advises drivers on how their driving style is impacting on fuel economy. The 1.6L mill also comes with an Idle Stop technology

The 1.6 L iDTEC engine will send power only to the front wheels via a manual transmission. No automatic or 4WD option is available. Rest all features and functionalities are pretty much same as the normal petrol CR-V which is also on sale in India.
