it's a fantastic engine, infact i had even started a thread with detailed info on the CTDi engine, it's amazing how good the Japs are at engineering too, and to come out with an engine is has a completely different character from it's current crop of VTEC engines and the fact that it beats the Germans at their own game, seriously deserves respect.
hey shantanu, the last four figures what do they mean? does it mean the car sustained those speeds continuously over the given duration?

I read bout the Diesel Accord. I wonder what price tag it would sport if it came to India. Its very tempting I must admit though

I don't think the price tag would be way off than the V6....it may be similarly priced.

Default Honda Accord i-CTDi Diesel Engine

Why india dont have this i-CTDi Diesel Engine for Honda Accord?I can see here in morocco Honda Accord with 2.2L i-CTDi Diesel engine.If we can get the same diesel engine in Indian i think Honda Accord will sell more.This is engine is produced by Honda itself .
Honda Motor Europe Ltd. announced on February 23, 2003 that Honda's first diesel engine to be fully developed and built in-house is to make its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The new 2.2 litre i-CTDi power unit joins Honda's intelligently-controlled i-series family of engines that already includes the i-VTEC and i-DSI range of petrol engines. It will be used to power, among others, the Honda Accord and, at a later date, the Honda CR-V.source:Honda Worldwide | i-CTDi Video
You can watch video also in this website.
Honda Diesels - MPGomatic.com
Anyone knows the specification of this engine?

Given the fact that they are relative noobs at diesel (as compared to the European manufacturers), its more likely that their engines are not robust enough to handle even small inconsistencies in fuel - which are common in India. The way I see it, the fault is more likely to lie with Honda designs than with Indian fuel. If Mercedes engines can run fine on Indian diesels, it seems silly to say that the fuel is not good enough for modern diesels.

EDIT: 350 refers to sulfur content in diesel, measured in ppm. BS-III standard in India mandates 350 ppm diesel.

IF Honda is talking about country although then i may agree with them but if they say diesel in not upto there standards in big cities and metros then our petrol is also not that good according to there satisfaction levels ( why even sell petrol models if this is the excuse )
Its kind of an excuse of not selling diesel engines when BMW and Mercedes are selling them

Considering some diesels are meeting Euro 4 norms, Honda's ICTDi isint something too special, that it cant be run on Indian Fuel.

IF Bmw & Mercs can run with Indian diesel , why not Honda?.
May be they are playing the wait & watch game ,since the Petrol version is selling in decent numbers.
May be they will bring the diesels, if the sales of petrol models dip.
These engines are pretty impressive even though they are coming from a manufacturer who started pretty late with diesel engines..

If diesels sells its still Honda who get the money . Do they care the money comes from petrol variant or diesel variant?
I think we should leave the decision to Honda, since its them who know whats good for their engine .
