Take a look at the new upcoming Honda cars in India in the next 2 years – Price, Specs & Launch Date
Honda is a known name in India that has been catering to the vast customer base. Revered for its premium models, Honda spearheaded into the volume segment with Brio, though it could not recreate the magic after an initial spark. While City sedan has been consistently doing well and is now readying for another generation leap, details on which are given later in the article, the company is also working on facelifts and new-gen versions of its existing cars. Besides, the automaker will soon launch the popular Civic nameplate in the country. At the 2018 Delhi Auto Expo, Honda has showcased 3 all-new cars which will be launched in the market in 2018-19 financial year. In this compilation, we bring you the complete list of upcoming Honda cars slated to launch in 2018 and 2019, read on to know more.
The first model in the list of upcoming Honda cars is the new Jazz facelift. The Jazz hatchback was re-launched in India in 2015. Reintroduced with Honda’s 1.5-litre i-DTEC oil burner, additional kit and sportier looks, Jazz still grapples in the segment. The company will give a mid-life facelift to the hatchback to improve its sales. In fact, Honda has already introduced the Jazz facelift for the European markets.
It was speculated to be launched at the 2018 Delhi Auto Expo; that didn’t happen. It is expected to be launched in the country in late 2018. Changes to the premium hatchback will include prominent styling changes to the exterior and interior. The hatchback will get Honda’s signature front fascia with new City inspired grille and sharper headlamps. In terms of equipment, Honda will pack in the 7.0-inch DigPad infotainment system with in-built navigation and MirrorLink used in City.
The Jazz facelift will have better NVH levels, as the company plans to address this issue in most of the diesel cars. The mechanical set up (engines and transmission) will be retained from the current model. It will continue to feature the same set of engine – a 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol and a 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel. Transmission options will include a 5-speed manual, a 6-speed manual and a CVT automatic (Petrol). Know More

Japanese automaker, Honda is considering the HR-V SUV for the Indian market. To be slotted above BRV, the new model will rival the likes of Jeep Compass and Hyundai Creta. While most of the upcoming Honda cars are either facelifts or new-gen versions, HR-V will be an all new model. The company will introduce the facelifted version of the global HRV, which is scheduled to make its debut in the end of 2018. The updated model will come with re-styled exterior design and upgraded cabin.
Honda will produce the SUV at its Tapukara plant and is likely to make changes to make it compatible for the Indian market. The engine set-up on the SUV is likely to include a 1.5-litre i-VETC and a 1.6-litre i-DTEC oil burner that will also power the upcoming CR-V and Civic sedan. While the petrol engine is good for 118bhp and 175Nm of torque, the oil burner offers 118bhp and 350Nm of torque. Transmission choices on this Jeep Compass rival will include a six-speed manual and a CVT auto box. Know More
