Honda is an aspirational brand in India. It is known for its sedan lineup. So the recent shift in SUVs caught Honda off-guard. But now Honda is working on their SUV lineup. In India, it is developing a mid-size SUV based on the City platform. Abroad Honda had unveiled the N7X concept last year. Now Honda has revealed the production-spec version of the N7X concept called the new-generation BR-V in Indonesia and in today’s article, we will see be checking out the what this car offers.

Besides the grille is a headlamp cluster with integrated L-shaped DRLs over the LED headlamps. Other exterior features include a muscular bonnet and sharp lines all over giving it a mean look.

Will it come to India?

Currently, Honda has no seven-seater car in our market after it discontinued the BR-V. But considering how much the 7-seater market has grown over the last few months. The new BR-V can be a worthy competitor if Honda brings it to India. As mentioned above, for the Indian market Honda is already developing a localized mid-size SUV based on the City platform. Should this come? We think Honda might want to get a SUV soon to India and this with the new generation BRV features, if might be able to bring really cool features like ADAS to the competition.
