Honda Will come up with new models for INDIA in 2018 with ; Next Gen CR-V and AMAZE , CIVIC and HR-V to Launch in 2019.
All New Six And The CITY :
Honda will kick off its new model in 2018 with the launch of next-gen CR-V.
1) The CR-V :
It gets a diesel engine for the first time, and a third row of seats, both of which are important considerations for SUV buyers. The talking point, however, is the 158hp, 1.6-litre twin-turbo diesel engine paired with a nine-speed automatic gearbox, which should make the most of the healthy 350Nm of torque.
2) The Second Generation Amaze :
Also due next year is the second-generation Amaze sub-four-metre compact sedan. The new Amaze will be a global model, just like its predecessor, and will take on the popular Maruti Dzire, the Hyundai Xcent and the Ford Figo Aspire in our market.
3) The Fully Refreshed Civic :
In 2019, Honda is expected to launch two of its much-awaited models, which also fill critical gaps in carmaker’s model range. The Civic will make a comeback after seven years and will be the latest version that gets the mid-cycle refresh. The Civic for India is likely to be powered by a 1.8-litre, four-cylinder petrol motor and a 1.6-litre diesel engine as well.
4) The much-speculated Honda HR-V :
The HR-V crossover has finally got the green light for production and is expected in 2019 as well. The crossover, which was unveiled at the 2013 Tokyo motor show, was due for launch in India, but Honda called off the programme as it couldn’t meet the cost target.
“The HR-V is a tough business case but Honda is likely to give it the go-ahead in the next few weeks,” said a company source.
This five-seat crossover will take on the likes of the Renault Captur, the Hyundai Creta, and some variants of the Jeep Compass. The India-bound HR-V is likely to borrow the 1.8-litre petrol and the 1.6-litre diesel engines from the Civic.
5) The Next-Gen. City :
The big one for Honda will be the next-gen City sedan that is due in 2020. It will come with a BS-VI diesel engine and a possible hybrid option too, to meet the Corporate Average Fuel Efficiency (CAFE) norms.
The City, which is the backbone of Honda, is expected to be plusher and packed with more features.
6) 10th-Generation Accord :
The carmaker is also readying an India-launch of the 10th-generation Accord sedan, which has just been unveiled for the North American market. And, unlike the current Accord which is imported and comes with only a hybrid option, the new model will be locally assembled and get a conventional petrol engine in addition to the hybrid option.
