Ya, they do make diesels. Honda's CRDi technology is called CTDi. They sell in UK ( Honda Car Experience ).

From the horses mouth -

2 variants with state of the art features.

1 ) the normal one - 180 BHP
2) 3.5L V6 - 270 BHP

16 inch wheels for the normal with 17 inchers for the V6

People at Honda are aware of the pricing and they know anything near 20L ex-showroom will not sell. They are looking at 18L ex showroom but all depends on the Japanese top management

Deleveries start in April.

Lets wait.

Thats a lame excuse. If Mercs and Bmws can operate on our fuel, why not Honda. I saw the video on their iCDI engine. Really hitech engine, but needs to adapted to Indian conditions and fuel. And thats what the real reason is.

I doubt these figs are for the Indian models? The 3.5L V6 in the Acura RL produces around 300bhp. This could be a detuned version of that engine.

that is the new 2.4 Accord even featured on Autocar Dec 2007. It is not the V6. I read in many places that the pictures dont do justice to this car, it has got good road presence.And yes, it does look like an Embera in pictures but is more of a different beast on road. The V6 is definately going to come with 270+ horses mated to a 5-speed Auto transmission for Indian market ( source - Overdrive Dec 2007 ). The only change on the V6 is gonna be 16inch wheels instead of 17inch for US and EU market.And also the cool boot reflectors are jus for Indian and EU market, it is absent on US spec Accord.

Default Business motoring has a story on it as well..

Top Story - Next change - Business Standard Motoring

The conclusion:
The V6, as expected, was more fun but that meant I lapped even faster and the drive was over before it started. The 268 bhp i-VTEC unit gnarled around and the chassis seem to cope with the power better than the current Accord. How I wish I could drive this machine on a winding road but from what I could make out (by doing imaginary slaloms and similarly silly stuff) the new Accord does not buckle under severe directional changes and that sinful i-VTEC unit seemed to be perfectly at home. Now, that is very unlike the current Accord V6, where the powerplant seems to be in its own world and revving away as the chassis tries to play catch-up. So there. My two laps of the Accord was over and I had the important business of driving those stunning Civic Type-Rs. The message from Tochigi to prospective Accord buyers who are holding on to their money back home is simple the new Accord is certain to set a new benchmark for quality, performance and value. And yes, it is inspired by the future I mean the FCX. Sure there is big time competition in the form of a new Skoda Superb apart from arch rival Toyota Camry to tackle with but then, trust us to bring them all together for a group test in the magazine when that happens.
