Honda is reportedly planning a sub-4 metre SUV for the Indian market. Like the other cars in the portfolio, like the CR-V, BR-V and WR-V names, the company is likely to call it the ZR-V at the time of launch.
This news was confirmed by IndiaAutosBlog. The upcoming compact SUV will go up against the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, the Hyundai Venue, and the upcoming Kia Sonet in India. The Honda ZR-V is expected to be unveiled globally during the second half of this year, which might get postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The company is likely to launch the car in 2021 in the Indian market.
As far as the engine is concerned, some reports have claimed that the Honda ZR-V will be powered by a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine and a 1.5-litre diesel motor. The compact SUV will also be available with a manual as well as an automatic transmission. We expect that the Honda ZR-V compact SUV is likely to get the 1.2-litre iVTEC and 1.5-litre iVTEC petrol engines and a 1.5-litre iDTEC diesel unit.
In other recent Honda news, the company teased the all-new Jazz which is due to launch in India within a couple of weeks. The image which was revealed by the company indicates that there have been several changes done to the car, which include LED headlamps along with LED DRLs and a bigger and wider grille.
The front-end of the all-new Jazz looks more proportionate now with a 'Honda' logo positioned at the center on the mesh grille, along with the black slat and the underlining chrome strip that looks like an extension for the LED DRLs. Also, the car gets the same set of alloy wheels and it also looks like the front bumper has been tweaked and looks muscular with a larger central air dam.
Mechanically, we expect the Honda Jazz to feature the same 1.2-litre petrol and the 1.5-litre diesel engine options that were powering the previous models, but now in a BS6 form. The 1.2-litre BS4 petrol engine produced 89bhp of power and 110Nm of peak torque and was mated to a five-speed manual or an optional CVT automatic. on the other hand, the 1.5-litre BS4 oil burner churned out 98bhp of power and 200Nm of peak torque.
Thoughts About The Upcoming Honda ZR-V
The compact sub-4 metre SUV segment has gained a lot of traction in the Indian market in the last couple of years and because of that the new offering by Honda is expected to sell in big numbers.
