Would you recommend buying the current BS4-compliant Honda CR-V AWD diesel with the hefty discount, or the BS6 variant that will be launched next year? Also, if I purchase the BS4 model now, will I face any difficulty later, like in getting BS4 diesel fuel? Will the BS4 CR-V diesel run on BS6 fuel, and will resale be an issue after five years of use?

AAA - It’s best to pick up a good deal on a BS4 CR-V diesel, as the prices of the BS6 model will be considerably higher. As it is, the CR-V isn’t great value, so if you get one at a discount, you should go for it. There is no issue of BS4 cars running on BS6 diesel fuel. In terms of resale value, the BS4 car will have a lower value than a BS6 model, but that will be offset by the lower purchase price of the former, especially in December, thanks to the fantastic discounts in the market.
