Cars worth waiting for in 2013

New Honda CR-V

First the bad news, there is no diesel version of the new CR-V, at least initially. The 2.2-CTDi diesel will probably arrive only at the beginning of the year 2014. The good news for CR-V loyalists is that this will probably be the first new launch of 2013 and will arrive end of January or first week of February. The engine remains the tried and tested 2.4-litre i-VTEC motor along with the smaller 2-litre engine. Honda has worked hard at making the cabin larger and roomier. The materials have been improved as well.

Being a complete import, prices aren’t expected to drop even a bit. Expect it to burn a hole in your pocket with expected prices starting at Rs 30 lakh.

Estimated price - Rs 30-36 lakh
Expected launch – January 2013
