re: Honda's new SUV for India | EDIT: Named Elevate

The car already kind of looks a bit dated. Hopefully they'll launch something that looks similar to the current HR-V.

Yes and I would say the odds of that happening are very good too, just slightly below that of spotting a polar bear in the Thar desert.

re: Honda's new SUV for India | EDIT: Named Elevate

I'm holding my breath for some news of an SUV launch from Honda. I have an almost 9.5 years of City and the road tax is due. I so want to upgrade to a better ground clearance Honda car, but they just seem to keep pushing it further away for what reasons I do not understand.

not sure what keeps them holding from launching the HRV.

re: Honda's new SUV for India | EDIT: Named Elevate

I have actually given up on Honda now.
When I bought Honda City in 2016, I had dreamed of switching next to Honda CRV or Honda HRV ( if launched in India ). However, today even CRV is not on sale.

Then there was a time, I thought Honda may just surprise us by launching the HRV. But, they dropped that plan as well.

I have no hope for the Honda mid-size SUV. I believe its fate would be similar to that of Honda BRV. The initial teased images of front and exterior doesn't look that good, interiors and lights will be shared with Honda City and it will include the same hybrid package. Honda would still launched it at a premium with Maruti / Toyota siblings.

I think even Honda loyalist will think twice before buying it and it will not survive the competition.
It will be a too little and too late addition by Honda.

re: Honda's new SUV for India | EDIT: Named Elevate

Not excited at all. Amaze platform, 1.2L engine, sub 4m, all screams cheap. Hyundai played smart by first bringing in Creta which is bang in the upper middle class segment so to say and then bring in a 'cheaper Creta' in Venue. Now is this Honda SUV going to be a cheaper City? If not, Honda need not even bother.

Honda Entry-Class SUV (scheduled to debut in spring 2023)- Japan
Honda's new SUV for India | EDIT: Named Elevate-1.jpg
Quote:
Honda has announced that it will completely eliminate engine vehicles globally by the year, and is aiming to achieve electrification including e:HEV in Japan by 2035.

However, this is a transitional period, development is already underway, and there are new models of pure engines coming soon
.

The new compact SUV, which is scheduled to debut around spring next year, is one of them.

Quote:
This compact SUV is a more compact mini SUV than the Vezel. It is based on the current Fit and is planned to be powered by a 1-liter in-line 3-cylinder turbocharger.

However, there is a possibility that it will be a 1.5L e:HEV that will be mounted on the Fit in consideration of the current trend. It is noteworthy as a direct competitor to the Yaris Cross as a direct competitor.
Quote:
It is powered by a 1-liter in-line 3-cylinder turbo engine of 129ps/18.4kgm.

Could this be the new WRV based on the Honda SUV RS concept?

re: Honda's new SUV for India | EDIT: Named Elevate

Isn't this bit of a downgrade since we know the previous WR-V was based on Jazz which definitely was a more superior product over Honda Amaze. This one looks clearly based on Amaze. Overall, Honda urgently needs to bring this to india if they have any hope on their india business.

- Will share its underpinnings with the Amaze

- Expected to come with 1.5-litre pure petrol, petrol hybrid options

- Honda SUV for India will get an all-new electronic architecture and screen system that’s seen on the new Accord and CR-V sold abroad

- Higher variants of the midsize SUV will also likely get Honda Sensing

- Likely go on sale later during the festive season of 2023

re: Honda's new SUV for India | EDIT: Named Elevate

I was expecting the creta rival to be based on city. But as per this news it is based on cheaper and probably less safer amaze. Feels a bit disappointed.

re: Honda's new SUV for India | EDIT: Named Elevate

This can be a success only if priced similar to the Venue. Should be positioned as a Venue+, with a lower price.
