A small Honda. Hmmm, that should spice up things in the compact segment.

Its a good move by Honda to enter the compact car segment. However, as we all know, Honda products always sell at a premium price and am not sure how many people who buy a Maruti would opt for a Honda unless and otherwise Honda prices its new small car right.

IMO, things won't be easy for HONDA in small car segment . TOYOTA also has plans of entering this volume segment and TOYOTA is seriously speaking business int his segment.
