Diesel Honda CR-V announced for Geneva image

Honda has recently announced its plans to introduce a diesel version of the 2013 CR-V during the Geneva Motor Show next month.

According to the Japanese based automaker, a diesel version of the Honda CR-V will be officially presented to the public during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show in March and this will be a market ready variant. Honda says that the CR-V Diesel will only become available in certain markets across the Old Continent and it will come with the EarthDreams technology, which is basically a technology package helping the model decrease its carbon footprint.

The Honda CR-V equipped with a diesel engine is getting a 1.6 liter i-DREC unit under its hood, which will be mated to a manual transmission sending power to the two-wheel drive. No performance details are being known on this model for the moment. The new Honda CR-V Diesel will be produced in Swindon and it’s expected to hit showrooms across the Old Continent later on this year, in autumn. Additional details on the Diesel Honda CR-V are being limited for the moment and will be announced on the 5th of March, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, where the model will make its public debut.
