    The old 2.2 wouldn't meet Euro 6 emissions so Honda had to start from scratch with the 1.6. We'd all love to drive 6 litre V8's, but legislation and the cost of fuel is stopping this in its tracks.
    1.6 high power with the twin sequential turbo has the power spread that people expect from a diesel. I think it's the one to wait for.

    I'll certainly test drive one, but considering its only 2WD and loses more than 20% of its BHP to lug around a heavy frame, I don't see the point.

    Or maybe I am just too used to the AWD/2.2 I-DTEC that I have now :Hooray:

    On a side note, the quicker we're out of Europe, then we neednt worry about their silly emissions warming is damn man made myth as it its anyway - not like the UK is even getting warmer for a start....but I digress.

    I hate diesel engines TDK you know that but the 1.6 is a really good engine. i would say its better than the 2.2 just due to it lightness.

    It not a million miles away from Torque and BHP

    test drive it you will be shocked how good it is, I was in denial and that being honest.

    Oh Im not discrediting it - I just think its not enough grunt for how big the CR-V is, thats all.

    I do intend to give it a drive when its available.
