Honda teases Creta-rivaling mid-size SUV for India

The new Honda SUV is expected to compete with the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Skoda Kushaq and VW Taigun.

Honda has released a follow-up teaser of its upcoming model. This time, we can confirm that it's the new Amaze-based SUV, which will be unveiled this summer. The new model is expected to compete with the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Skoda Kushaq and VW Taigun.

The teaser image partially reveals the upcoming Honda SUV’s beefy design. It has an almost vertical front fascia with LED daytime running lights and circular fog lamps positioned on the front bumper. The SUV has flared wheel arches and a strong shoulder line.

Honda’s new SUV will be based on an updated version of the Amaze platform. Inside, the SUV could get the latest 12.3-inch infotainment head-unit and a 10.2-inch digital instrument cluster. The SUV is also likely to get the Honda Sensing ADAS suite.

The new model is likely to be powered by the same 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine offered in the City. Higher variants could be offered with the strong-hybrid powertrain. Transmission options might include a 5-speed manual, CVT and an e-drive transmission.
