Japanese auto-maker Honda recently showcased the next-generation Amaze at the 2018 Auto Expo. At the event, Honda Co & president Yaichiro Venice hinted at launching new models based on the platform of the Amaze. It may seem a difficult task considering that only Tata have done that with the Nexon compact SUV.
Honda, currently have a cross-over in its India lineup which fits under the Sub-4-meter category. The WR-V cross over is under pinned by the platform of the Jazz and is selling in good numbers. This may convince Honda on bringing a new compact SUV for its India line-up.
On the platform of the Amaze, Honda expressed that it is more flexible and can accommodate more body styles. This platform is a modified version of the existing platform which under pins the likes of the Brio and BR-V. When Honda does plan an launching a Compact SUV based on this platform, it will be cheaper than the WR-V, given the low cost structure of the platform.
Honda already announced that it has plans to launch as many as six new models in the next 3 years. Out of the six, we can include the new Civic, CR-V and the Amaze. It has not been revealed yet what are the other 3 models, so we can hint at its launch.
