Japanese carmaker Honda has finally revealed the N7X concept. The N7X is the brand’s next 7-seater car for East Asian markets, which most definitely excludes India. The Honda N7X will come in place of the Honda BR-V.

  • It seems that the design cues have been taken from the current-gen Honda City and gets an upright nose followed by a wider bonnet.
  • Under the bonnet sits its flat wraparound headlamps and chrome-laden grille.
  • On the centre of the grille sits the Honda logo and the LED DRL setup.
  • On the bottom, we get to see a faux skid plate with brushed aluminium inserts giving Honda’s new 7-seater a proper SUV-ish look.
  • The black cladding on the wheel arches stretches across the vehicle, giving it a more masculine look.
  • We also get to see a signature LED taillamp setup similar to the current-gen city.

Anything new on the mechanical front?

  • Honda is yet to reveal the power specification of the Honda N7X. However, that it is based on the 5th generation Honda City.
  • Some suggest that it might get a 1.5-litre petrol engine compatible with a 6-speed manual and an optional CVT automatic gearbox.

Will we get to see the Honda N7X in India?

  • Well, this is a question only Honda has the answer to. However, looking at Honda’s current position in the market, it seems that the new Honda N7X will be a big ‘No’ for India.
  • Another reason for Honda to avoid launching any SUV’s in the nearing future is its competitors and their aggressive pricing.
  • One can also say that due low sales number of its current-gen SUVs in India the brand should refrain from introducing any SUVs in the Indian market.
