Agree.plbxr said:You can read into that what you will. I don't care much. I own one, it does just about everything I want it to do, I love it. Based on long term experience, if I needed to replace it then I would buy another Yeti.
Don't get too excited by this engine in the CRV. One of the reasons I changed from a Yeti is that the boot was not deep enough. The CRV appealed as it is bigger so I have kept an eye on it. EVERY review of the CRV with this engine points out how gutless the engine is in this car and that the only way to keep it moving is to rev it hard so destroying the mpg. They are getting mid 40's in the real world for the CRV with this engine.kypriaki said:Now compare this toHonda's new 1.6i D-Tec engine, this is available in the Civic and the CRV.
Civic 118bhp, 300NM, 75mpg, 99g/km and in the CRV 62mpg, 119gkm.
Imagine this kind of engine in a Yeti, most of the 2.0 ltrs would not be needed at all.
