All Honda cars will witness a price hike up to 1.2 per cent.
Honda Cars India (HCI) will increase prices of its vehicles across its product lineup from next month (July, 2019). All Honda cars will witness a price hike up to 1.2 per cent. The decision comes to offset adverse impact of increase in cost of raw materials and new safety regulations. The new safety norms mandate that every four-wheeler should have driver’s airbag, speed alert system and seat belt reminders from 1st July, 2019.
In order to make the City sedan compliant to the upcoming safety norms, the Japanese carmaker recently offered speed warning system and seat belt warning system as standard safety features across the model lineup. Prices of the sedan, however, remain unchanged.
Currently, Honda’s Indian product lineup include Brio hatchback, Amaze compact sedan, Jazz premium hatchback, WR-V compact SUV, City sedan, BR-V compact crossover SUV, CR-V SUV, Civic and Accord luxury sedans. Prices of the vehicles range from Rs 4.73 lakh to Rs 43.21 lakh (ex-showroom).
Talking about Honda’s future plan, the Japanese carmaker will soon introduce the HR-V SUV in the country. This new SUV will be slotted against the Jeep Compass, Tata Harrier and Hyundai Tucson. The carmaker is also working on the new-generation City that will hit roads sometime next year. The 2020 City will come with the BS6-ready 1.5L i-DTEC and 1.6L i-DTEC diesel engines.
