Honda Cars New Five Models Coming Before 2018:
Honda Cars in India and Pakistan are at its peak of success. However, Honda’s other products have rather failed to emulate the City’s success. Honda now plans to launch a bunch of new cars in India and Pakistan to increase its market share. Honda Cars India/ Pakistan plans to launch three all new vehicles and at least one facelift in 2016-2017. These launches will be spread across various segments, right from mass market small hatchbacks to premium sedans. Honda is expected to be not repeating the mistake of leaving out the Diesel engine options from its lineup.
1. New Honda City
Honda will launch the City facelift in Pakistan and India soon in very near future. Updates to the model will be comprehensive. There will be style gradation all around along with changes to the interiors.
2. New Honda Civic India Launch
The new Honda Civic is also among the most awaited of upcoming new Honda Cars in India and Pakistan in 2016, 2017. The new Civic does look really promising. Hence, like the new Honda Jazz, the Civic too will soon make its re-entry into the Indian market. The earlier Civic descended into obscurity due to the launch of cheaper, diesel equipped alternatives. And this eventually lead to its withdrawal from the market. Now, though, Honda intends to bring the Civic back to India in the form of the current generation model. Civic’s design highlights include- ‘Flying H’ front chrome grille, a long hood, sporty bumpers, and boomerang-style LED tail lamps. The new Civic is internationally being sold with a 1.5 L VTEC turbocharged engine that comes mated to a CVT Auto ‘box. This modern gasoline engine benefits from Honda’s ‘Earth Dream Technology’ and Honda claims that the new Civic offers best-in-class performance and fuel mileage.
3. Honda HRV India and Pakistan Launch
So the HR-V is not among the most awaited upcoming new Honda Cars in India and Pakistan. The Honda HRV SUV shares in plenty with the Jazz. Hence, this SUV’s design is based on the much publicized Honda ‘Exciting H Design’ philosophy. Highlights of the HR-V’s design are a stylish front grille, LED headlamps, a rather steeply sloping roofline and a dynamic rear-end. It has a CR-V-like dashboard with features like- touchscreen infotainment unit, touchscreen auto climate control and a CR-V like steering wheel. Powering the Honda HR-V globally is a 1.8-litre Petrol motor that has a max. power of 141 bhp, and a 1.6 L Diesel that has a max. power of 118 bhp. The India-spec model, however, could make do with BR-V’s 1.5 L Petrol and Diesel motors.[table id=7 /]
4. Honda WRV India Launch
Honda is looking to bring a Jazz-based crossover to India and Pakistan. With the popularity of crossovers and SUVs on the rise, the new crossover should help Honda address the constantly dwindling sales. Honda has already begun testing the upcoming WRV on international roads. We expect it to arrive in India sometime next year. The Honda WR-V will share its engines with the Jazz.[table id=8 /]
5. Next Generation Honda CRV India
Honda recently unveiled the next generation CR-V for international markets. It is also likely to make it India by 2018. The current CR-V has been performing poorly thanks to high pricing and the lack of a diesel engine option. Its India launch has not been confirmed yet, however.
