  1. Due to current tax system it's hard to say CRV hybrids will reach our shores in near future since it has a 2L engine and tax alone is close to 8 million . People will go for the gasoline variant more since the tax is 5.6 million for 1.5L engine .
  2. JDM Honda CRV hybrid has CVT I think .
  3. Yes I have seen a few on the road, most bought for permits. It's 7 seater competitors like Toyota Rush and Mitsubishi Expander were bigger and had more options, people went for those. The agent no longer sell it.
  4. Since you're a hardcore Peugeot fan, why don't you try a 3008 around 2012.
  5. When the Vezel reached our shores for the first time, it was such an attractive "SUV" for the Sri Lankans with posh looks, lots of options and a decent price tag (below 5 million ) and most of all a HYBRID. I bet most of the people who bought it didn't know the transmission was DCT or even what DCT means. All they knew was that it's an automatic gearbox as car sales people said to them. Most of them followed the heard and bought them. There were no competitive alternatives at that time for Vezel. Even there were some, either they were not hybrids or they didn't offer options as much as the vezel. But with the release of competitive vehicles for similar prices and reliable gearboxes (such as CHR) , the importation of Vezels drastically fell. Still there are some importing it but most of them don't even know it has DCT. The agent offered the international version of Vezel which is Honda HRV gasoline with CVT box but compared to Vezel it was expensive and came with less options . So nobody went for it. I have seen around 3 of these vehicles in Colombo though.
  6. That maybe because their CVTs have proven reliable than Nissan's CVT or DCT. It seems manual gearboxes are popular in UK as I see these UK car reviewers choose them for their vehicle reviews more than autos.
  7. In UK they offer 7 speed automatic and 6 speed manual gearboxes. If our agent is also importing from UK maybe we can order a manual one. Also I'm pretty sure there are plenty of grey importers who are willing to bring down a manual one. https://youtu.be/X3cVttIXmOs

  9. Even the agent seems to be keen on promoting the Juke over the Qashqai because once I inquired about the latter from them, all they were telling about was the Juke and that it has all tha active driving aids such as lane departure warning , emergency brakes , adaptive cruise control etc. It seems to be the first time A#W is offering these in one of their brand new vehicle. This is from an email I received from them. Multi information display is bigger than in CHR and looks nice. But on downside it has only single zone climate control .
