Honda Cars India has confirmed the products that will be showcased at the Auto Expo 2016 next month, which will include the most awaited Honda BR-V, Honda Accord, Project 2and4 concept and a Jazz racing prototype. Honda BR-V was unveiled in Indonesia in 2015, and now touching the Indian shores, it will show its presence at the show.
The Honda BR-V will be in immediate competition with the likes of Hyundai Creta and Renault Duster, the BR-V is a 7-seater crossover that features the striking Honda design language. Most likely, this variant will be packed with a 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines borrowed from the bestselling sedan in the country, Honda City.
Honda will also re-introduce its executive sedan the Honda Accord, though by the end of 2013 this full-size model was off its production line in the country, due to buyer opting for SUVs and entry level premium brand offerings. Reportedly, it will feature a hybrid powertrain with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine connected to a 124 kW electric motor, and a regular model that will sport a 2.4-litre four-cylinder i-VTEC engine paired with an electronic CVT that produces 185 HP.
Speaking about the Honda’s Project 2and4 Concept, that was first showcased at the 2015 IAA in Frankfurt. The Project 2 and 4 Concept is a radical concept designed by the Honda’s ‘Global Design Project’ competition’s winning entry. The design language and engine of the prototype has been inspired by the legendary Honda RA 272 that raced in 1965 Formula1 season.
