Honda has teased the launch of its upcoming SUV in Indonesia
Honda has announced the launch of its upcoming mid-size SUV in Indonesia. The company will reveal the SUV on November 2. Although the promotional image from the company doesn’t reveal much about the upcoming SUV, we guess it could be the next generation of the WR-V.
The company also mentioned a big W in the background of the teaser image, which gives a subtle hint about the name of the upcoming SUV. Although the company (Honda) has not made it official, the upcoming SUV may be launched in India after its launch in Indonesia. From the silhouette, we can tell that the SUV offers an A-pillar and looks like the HR-V SUV.
Considering that the SUV is a mid-size segment, Honda is expected to offer a powerful hybrid powertrain just like the Honda City in India. We can also expect a 1.5 liter petrol engine on the SUV. However, we cannot ignore the fact that Honda may offer a petrol or turbo petrol engine for the SUV.
As for the cabin of the SUV, we expect a lot of features. Some of the key features of the SUV include a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity, digital instrument panel, sunroof, multiple speakers, cruise control and much more. In terms of safety, the SUV is expected to offer ABS with ESC, multiple airbags, ISOFIX and much more.
If the SUV makes it to India, it could boost Honda’s sales. We expect Honda’s upcoming SUV to make its way to the 2023 Indian Auto Expo, which will be held early next year. Honda currently offers one SUV in India and it is none other than the Honda WR-V. If the new SUV is launched in India, Honda could give Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Volkswagen Taigun and Skoda Kushaq a proper competition.
