  1. Honda Civic and HRV launch date delay will lead to lot of market share lose to competition… Honda needs to launch them soon to catch up with competition.

  2. Honda HRV is distinctive and surely would scale up the honda sales since in India we have Ford Eco sport, Duster but all of these cross over miss the style that HRV offers. Furthermore the recent launch BRV is a huge SUV not to categorise as a cross over. Honda needs to speed up their launches not sure about the India strategy but guess INDIA is looking for more premium looking cars rather than cheap quality. Since India is the growing market.. Honda please think bigger!

  3. i strongly agree with TARUNA. you honda guys should realy think on bringing civic and HRV vezel to indian market. we never wanted mobilio or BRV

  4. Would like to know if Honda India is planning to Facelift the Honda Mobilio? Thank you. Kind Regards

  5. Hi Mr Jneneswar Sen Marketing and Sales of Honda Car India announced at the Launch of the Honda BRV on the 5th May 2016 that there will be a Facelift on the Honda Mobilio later in the year. Can you Confirm that? Much Appreciated. Thank you. Kind Regards
