India is readily accepting SUVs at an alarming rate. Every new manufacturer and old is planning their strategy around SUV segments and is planning to one-up the other with features, price, space and other points of focus. So that means Honda has to get rid of the WRV. Yes the WRV was a good car but with the segment pushing for more SUV like stance and features, its days are numbered. There will soon be a new Honda Venue competition compact SUV in the market. We are going to find out soon. Below are our expectations.
Honda Venue Competition Design and Specifications
The car apart from being a sub-four meter car will have a tall roof and get more boxy attributes that one looks for in a SUV. Honda will want to make sure that the car is built for India. A product that takes India specific needs in mind. So high ground clearance, 16inch-17inch wheels, loads of bootspace and second row comfort and a butch front look that people like. The car will take a lot of inspiration at the front from the Honda Amaze and the rear could sport a sleep look from the Honda City in terms of the taillights. Other than that the car will get a 1.5-litre diesel and 1.2-litre petrol engine. Both will come with manual and CVT transmissions. The cars might also get driving modes and ESP.
