Honda confirms new SUV for India; to take on Hyundai Creta

The upcoming Honda mid-size SUV (codenamed: 31XA) could be based on a completely new platform.

Honda has confirmed that a new India-specific SUV is under development. While the carmaker hasn't revealed the launch timeline, reports suggest that it could be introduced in the market around August 2023.

The new Honda SUV is expected to share its platform with the City. That might sound familiar as the N7X concept that was unveiled in Indonesia also uses the same platform. Although some reports suggest that the new SUV (codename: 31XA) will be built on a completely new platform.

SUVs account for almost 35% of the total passenger vehicle segment. Honda is now looking to grab a piece of the pie that is already divided among popular products like the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, MG Hector, Tata Harrier and the likes.
