The first teaser for Honda Cars India's future sport utility vehicle (SUV), which will make its world debut in the summer of 2023 and compete against popular sedans like the City and Amaze, was unveiled today.

Following thorough market research in India, the new Honda SUV was developed at Honda R&D Asia Pacific. The business claims that it has been designed with consideration for consumers' evolving lifestyle needs and expectations for Honda's new SUV in terms of design and performance.

The new Honda SUV appears to have a highly strong attitude and an aggressive front from the teaser image. It is equipped with LED DRLs and LED fog lights, much like the majority of modern cars. We anticipate LED taillights and headlights. It could have alloy wheels measuring 16 or 17 inches.

A touchscreen infotainment system, a digital instrument panel, automated climate control, and other amenities are anticipated for the next Honda SUV's cabin. A sunroof is something else we anticipate for the new Honda SUV.

The new SUV's engine will probably be equipped with options for both pure gasoline and gasoline-hybrid engines. The latter appears likely given that Honda has emphasised the usage of hybrid engines and already incorporates the technology into several of its current vehicles.

At the moment, Honda sells the City (fourth, fifth, and hybrid models), Amaze, Jazz, and WR-V. According to sources, the fourth-generation City, fifth-generation City diesel, Amaze diesel, Jazz, and WR-V would be phased out by the end of FY23.

In a recent news release, the business acknowledged that the SUV was chosen after doing "extensive market assessments in India." According to significant market research conducted in India on people's changing lifestyle needs and expectations from Honda for their new SUV in terms of design and performance, Honda R&D Asia Pacific Co., Ltd. created the all-new SUV.
