One of the most common questions asked is – Honda Navi ? What is this? A scooter or a bike? This has been a question that many have been asking. Navi has been designed to appeal to the teenagers and youngsters. It is based on the Activa platform and shares the same engine too. Once, you have just got themselves their riding license. This one is for them. Scooters are more practical and dull for most of the teenagers. This is trendy, comes in bright colours, stylish design and looks like a bike. What does this new two-wheeler have on offer? The Honda Navi had won our ‘Innovation of the Year’ Award in 2016. We ride the new Navi for a good 500 kilometres to tell you if it is really fun?

Honda Navi Design
The Honda Navi doesn’t look like a conventional scooter at all. It’s styling is the most striking aspect. The design is similar to a motorcycle. The tyres are bigger than a regular scooter, the suspension looks like that on a motorcycle, the headlamp design too. The scooter appears to be more practical, but what these buyers need is better styling. Something that will stand out. That is exactly what the new Navi is all about. In terms of design, this is one of the best looking design, it will turn heads around. This is new, this is different. That is exactly what college going boys need. The Honda Navi is stylish and the design is simple. It gets dual colour styling that makes it look appealing.

Honda Navi Usability
The Honda Navi doesn’t not have the utility of a conventional scooter, as it is designed like a motorcycle. There is no closed storage space. The seat is smaller and narrower than a scooter and so doesn’t have under seat storage space. So, it might be a bit tight for two people in length, but width makes it more comfortable. The seating is a tad low that makes it easier to climb on and off. However one can opt for a lockable compartment that fits below the fuel tank. This adds to some decent utility.

Honda Navi Engine and Performance
The same 110cc Activa engine is used for the Honda Navi. It churns about 8bhp of power and 8Nm of torque. The Activa engine has been hit and it is known for its instant throttle response. The Navi is lighter than the Activa and this makes it even better in performance. Twist the throttle and there is immediate power from it. This is what makes it a good option to consider.
The bigger tyres on the Honda Navi makes it performance better. It is a lot more peppy than the Activa/ The bigger tyres even absorb the bumps well and improve the ride quality. The handling too of the Navi makes it good enough.

Honda Navi Mileage
Honda Navi Mileage
|Open Road||45 km/l|
With the same Activa engine, the mileage is good enough. In fact, with the lighter body weight the fuel efficiency is further improved. It seems that a lot of positives have happened to this engine with the Navi chassis. Improvement in power, looks and even fuel efficiency. The only downside is that the fuel tank on the Navi is smaller than 4 litres. Which makes it difficult to ride for longer distances.

The Navi comes across as an inexpensive option to customers who desire a motorcycle and the convenience of a non-geared scooter. It is a fun vehicle which is a departure from the routine scooter and gives it a new twist. It is expected to appeal to the youth who want a commuter two-wheeler which also has style and is fun. Moreover, the personalization options at a minimal cost is surely appealing. Honda Navi is a unique proposition and the company is looking at attracting young buyers towards the Honda brand. This is one reason why the Honda Navi went on to win the MotorOctane MotoDay Award for the ‘Innovation of the year’ – 2016.

Honda WRV crosses 50,000 sales mark
Honda WR-V seems to be the next big thing for the brand. We share a detailed review
The Honda WRV has been one of the best sellers from the Japanese manufacturer. The crossover has sold more than 50,000 units, thereby becoming one of the most important products for the company. Honda WRV clocked 37,031 units last financial year and the company says that the crossover accounts for 28% of its sales. Honda WRV was conceived in India and is the first Honda product to have extensive R&D work carried out in India. This is therefore an important milestone for the company. As per Honda, 80% of the sales come for the top-of the line VX variant and only 20% were in the entry-level S variant. We have in past also pointed out that surprisingly, one of the key factors for high sales of WRV in its category has been the offering of a sunroof.
The Honda Jazz was not as big a hit as the WRV. Clearly the WRV has bettered its competition on many counts. Honda WRV is one of the best sellers in its segment which comprises of the Ford Ecosport, Maruti Vitara Brezza and the Tata Nexon. This is a compact SUV that is based on the Jazz and has a lot of similarity to the hatchback.
The exterior might not say that, and it looks like a totally different vehicle. The interiors are where there is a lot of similarity. This SUV is under 4 metres too. There are more features on offer too. The engines available are the 1.2-litre petrol with a five-speed manual and a 1.5-litre diesel with a six-speed manual. The Honda WRV offers a lot more features. In terms of space it is the same like the Jazz. There is no differentiating factor there. Should you consider buying this new compact SUV? Or look at something else?

A good option for those who need a higher premium hatchback with good ground clearance, the Honda WRV will make more a better buy.

This vehicle will only come with the 1.3-litre diesel engine.
There are afew changes that S-Cross will be getting, howvwer, they are purely cosmetic in nature. The exteriors are upgraded mainly. This includes a new front fascia. The changes on the inside are not too many. Performance lover will now be a bit disappointed as the more powerful 1.6-litre version will not make it in the facelift.
The Maruti S-Cross had earned itself an expensive car tag due the high price of the 1.6-litre version. This was one of the reasons for the vehicle to clock luke warm sales numbers.
