Honda Cars at Auto Expo 2016 – BR-V India Debut

The star of Honda’s lineup will be the BR-V small SUV which is due for a launch in India in early 2016. The Hyundai Creta has seen a tremendous response since its launch in the domestic market, but Honda plans to play spoilsport with the introduction of the BR-V. It is based on the Brio’s platform and has been specifically designed for price sensitive markets such as ours.


Honda BR-V India Price

Expect a launch soon after the Auto Expo at prices starting around INR 9 lacs going all the way up to around 13 lacs for the top of the line diesel trim.

Since the BR-V will not be bound the sub 4 m small car regulations, it will borrow its engines from the Honda City, which will include a 117 bhp 1.5-litre petrol mated to either a 5-speed MT or CVT and a 99 bhp 1.5-litre diesel mated to a 6-speed MT.

Honda BR-V India – Rivals

The Honda BR-V will rival the likes of the Hyundai Creta, Maruti S-Cross, Renault Duster, Nissan Terrano and the upcoming Tata Hexa.

Honda Cars at Auto Expo 2016 – New Accord India Debut

The once popular executive sedan was discontinued following a drop in demand and the rise in popularity of diesel powered vehicles, something Honda had no answer too. Although it still does not get a diesel motor, Honda will bring back the Accord in its current avatar to India next year. The sedan will draw power from a petrol motor for now, but a hybrid version could also be brought in at a later stage.


New Honda Accord Price in India

The new accord won’t come cheap with prices expected to start around INR 28 lacs. Such pricing will place it firmly as a rival to the Toyota Camry which start at INR 28.8 lacs.

The hybird, which is expected to be launched at a later stage, will be powered by a 2.0-litre petrol coupled with a 124 kW electric motor with a combined power output of 196 bhp.
