Default Honda announced a diesel Accord or Accura vehicle for the US market. Anyone know when

it will be available? Hey genius, almost everyone knows diesel is 30-50% more efficient that gas so you spend LESS even if diesel is a little more per gallon.For those that are interested. Here is an article about the diesel Honda Accord from Car and Driver. Apparently it is already in Europe and gets 62 mpg. (That English gallons - about 50 mpg American gallons)

kikime - Despite being more expensive, they are typically more fuel efficient and as a result, are cheaper.Acura has said they'll bring a "DTEC" diesel for the Acura TSX sometime soon, but they're not good with timelines, so don't hold your breath. Plus, I don't think the new TSX is worth it at all. An Accord is cheaper and more powerful, and the new A4 is more luxurious and powerful.

I think that both the 2009 Accord diesel and TSX diesel are going to be released early 2009 or late that year. To the other guy who said diesel is expensive, that's true, but the Accord diesel was getting 52 MPG during testing (40's MPG in real life) , don't you think that balances out the price you'd pay for diesel?

The CR-V, Accord and the Acura TSX should be available with the diesel engine for the 2010 year.
