Honda is developing a wide array of new vehicles for the Indian auto market: from a sub-4-metre compact SUV to a new mid-size SUV which is positioned between the HR-V and the CR-V, which will help the Japanese automaker expand its SUV portfolio in the market. At least three new Honda models are expected to be launched in India in the next one to two years.
New Honda compact SUV
An all-new sub-4-metre compact SUV is said to be developed by the Japanese auto manufacturer and is believed to be launched in May 2021. The new compact SUV is expected to be called the Honda ZR-V and borrow the platform from the Honda Amaze. The new car is likely to borrow the design traits from the new-gen HR-V and XR-V, which are offered in China. The car will keep under its hood two petrol motor options. It will compete in the fiercely competitive sub-four-metre compact SUV segment against the Tata Nexon, Maruti Vitara Brezza, Kia Sonet and Hyundai Venue.
The new Honda Civic prototype has been unveiled, which suggests some important information about the new model. The new-gen Civic is expected to be globally debuted in mid-2021 before arriving in our market one year later. The new model will come with a newly designed front with a larger grille, sharper headlights and LED DRLs. It will also be equipped with a sloping roofline, 19-inch black alloy wheels, wider split taillights and dual-exhaust tip. As regards the interior, the sedan will get a simple dashboard with few buttons, a digital instrument cluster and a new independent 9-inch HD touchscreen infotainment system. The new sedan will be packed with multiple new airbag designs, updated driver-assistive and Sensing® safety technologies.
The new-gen Honda HR-V has begun to be tested and will come with an all-new design and greater dimensions. Coming with coupe-SUV design, the new car will measure about 4.4 metres in length. The Japanese automaker is reported to launch a new mid-size SUV which will be positioned between the new compact SUV and the new HR-V. This new mid-size SUV will compete against the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos.
