Take a look at the new upcoming Honda cars in India in the next 2 years – Price, Specs & Launch Date
Buoyed by positive response for WRV crossover and 2017 City sedan, Honda is now planning to further expand its line-up by launching several new cars. With new cars, the Japanese automaker is aiming to revive its lost market share in the growing Indian market. Besides launching new cars, the company is also set to upgrade its existing line-up to claim for a large share in the exponentially growing Indian car market. The company is also aiming at premium car segment. It will re-introduce the Civic brand and diesel powered new generation CRV. For all those, who are planning to buy a Honda as their next car, here’s a list of upcoming Honda cars in India in the next 2 years.
The Jazz facelift is among several other new upcoming Honda cars in India that will go on sale in the country in the next couple of years. The previous generation Jazz failed to live up to the company’s expectations. It was eventually phased out and the reason behind the failure is its overpricing. Despite price cuts and other attempts, the Jazz could not turn out to be a good seller. In 2015, Honda re-introduced this popular global brand in India with sportier looks and a new diesel engine that lacked earlier. After initial success, the vehicle’s sales saw a regular dip and failed to withstand competition in the segment.
In a bid to improve sales, the Japanese maker is planning to give Jazz a major makeover for the first time in the Indian market. The premium hatchback will get styling tweaks to both inside and out. Furthermore, the diesel model will have lower NVH (Noise Vibration Harshness) levels. Like the new City, the premium hatch will be equipped with a new 7.0-inch DigiPad infotainment system with in-built navigation and MirrorLink.

The company is likely to tweak this global SUV for the Indian roads. This five-seater premium crossover will take on the likes of Hyundai Tucson, Jeep Compass and the upcoming Toyota CHR.
