Although Honda has been around for more than 70 years, the Indian subsidiary only took shape in the year 1995. Nevertheless, for the past 25 years, the Japanese brand has delighted Indian customers with technologically advanced vehicles that know how to perform. From the very first Honda City to the very latest Honda BR-V, the company has displayed nothing but progress. They sell cars with a passion and an assurance that the vehicles are designed to give you an overall seamless driving experience. Here are 4 upcoming Honda cars that could carry that seamlessness into the future.
|Honda HR-V||14.0 Lakh|
|Honda City 2020||10.0 Lakh|
|Honda Jazz 2020||7.5 Lakh|
|Honda Brio 2019||5.0 Lakh|
|Expected Launch||November 1, 2019|
|Engine||1.5L Petrol, 1.8L Petrol, 1.6L Diesel|
|Transmission||6-Speed Manual, Automatic|
The much awaited Honda HR-V is set to make its debut soon and with undercover testing already going on, we wouldn’t have had to wait too long. With its unique, yet somewhat familiar shape, the HR-V is rumored to replace the existing Honda BR-V which might give owners reason to find a used car evaluation tool quickly. Under the hood of the vehicle, there will probably be the same 1.5L and 1.6L petrol and diesel engines respectively – the same ones found on Honda’s Jazz, WR-V, and City. There is also talk of a 1.8L petrol variant that is found on the Civic, but it will only be available in certain regions. In terms of the interiors and features, the HR-V is said to house LED headlights, a 7-inch infotainment system, a panoramic sunroof, and adjustable power seats. When launched, the HR-V will go head to head against some of the big names in the segment such as the Renault Captur, Kia Seltos, Nissan Kicks, and Hyundai Creta.

As mentioned earlier, the City was the first car from Honda to touch down on Indian roads and is still considered as a major hit in the country. The new 2020 City is also expected to be greeted with the same enthusiasm as its previous iterations. The car will feature BS6 compliant 1.5L petrol and diesel engines while there could also be a 1.5L petrol-mild hybrid variant in the making. As captured on its test runs, the new Honda City looks to have the “Bull Horn” grille with wraparound LED headlights on the front with slimmer LED tail lights at the rear. Some features that could make it into the City 2020 are Honda’s Lane Watch system and a better touchscreen infotainment system. Lane Watch uses a camera in the OVRM to send a video signal to the infotainment system when changing lanes. The new City will probably debut at the 2020 Auto Expo and should be available for purchase in the following months.
|Expected Launch||August 15, 2020|
|Engine||1.2L Petrol, 1.5L Diesel|
|Transmission||6-Speed Manual, 5-Speed Manual, 7-Step CVT|
|Mileage||Petrol -18.2Kmpl, Diesel – 27.3Kmpl, Petrol-CVT – 19Kmpl|
When it comes to sporty cars in India, the Honda Jazz stands up and gets noticed for all the right reasons. Firstly, the new model comes with either a 1.2L petrol engine or a 1.5L diesel one that is fitted with a 5-speed manual or 6-speed manual transmission system respectively. There is also a 7-step CVT variant for the petrol model which is reserved for the top tier Jazz VX. In terms of mileage, the petrol Jazz offers 18.2 Kmpl while the diesel offers 27.3 Kmpl with the petrol-CVT variant offering 19Kmpl. The previous Jazz model came with a number of handy features and it looks like the latest version will do just the same. With dual airbags in the front, parking sensors in the rear, automatic door locks, a 7-inch infotainment system, and cruise control, the Honda Jazz 2020 has a lot to give to its customers
|Expected Launch||December 1, 2020|
|Transmission||5-Speed Manual, CVT Automatic|
Given the fact that the 2018 Honda Brio was so successful, it seems like the company decided to keep the changes down to a minimum on the 2019 Brio. In fact, there are more similarities between the two variants than there are differences. Based on customer reviews, the older version lacked storage space. Honda revamped their designs and the newer version now features a 205mm increase in length, a 60mm increase in wheelbase, and an 83 litre increase in boot space. The exteriors also get an upgrade with Honda’s newest grille design along with sleek headlamps, a flat bonnet, and bigger rear doors. It seems like the 1.2L i-VTEC petrol engine found on the 2018 variant impressed customers which is why the 2019 Brio retains the brilliant motor along with its 5-speed manual transmission.
With so much promise to their name, Honda is a company that often delivers and gets the job done. These four upcoming cars from Honda could give buyers the opportunity to own a powerful performer from one of the biggest names in the business. Set to hit dealerships in the coming months, these Honda cars could have people reaching for their RC transfers and looking for ways to get rid of their used cars to make space for newer, better models. Thanks to decades of trust, consistency, and ingenuity, Honda has rightfully earned the loyalty of their customers and is set to continue in the same way for future generations.
