Great article, Matt. It seems as if we have to wait until the 2009 model year for higher-efficiency Hondas. The i-CTDi Diesel should be over by then as well, fingers crossed. They'd better hold to these speculations, or even improve upon them. It's probably too late for anything to come out next year that rivals anything their current lineup (and I can't see Honda rushing something to market these days, which would sacrifice quality -- they tried it once already with the 5-speed automatics in the 2000-2004 Acura TL (especially the Type-S auto), and later the MDX -- huge recall, with a warranty up to 100K miles).
