Not sure if this is the right thread, but RushLane reports that Honda Cars India Ltd has imported a Civic 1.6 iDTEC for R&D purpose.
Now my guesses are
1. Honda is planning to launch Civic sometime here with that diesel engine.
2. Honda might be testing that diesel engine for CRV as it will be getting Diesel heart next year.
Even if they wanted to test the CRV diesel they could have imported one instead of Civic. Lot's of confusion here.
Couldn't find Civic thread, so posting it here.
