Honda's future in India is diesel and MPV

Modified On Nov 23, 2012 08:35 PM By Rachit

Honda had recently taken us to drive the new Amaze, the Brio based sedan. This is the first diesel engine powered Honda for the Indian car market and it will be launched in the next financial year.

This is a 1.5-litre i-DTEC engine and will also power other Honda models as well. The Brio sedan is likely to get this engine with a power rating of 70-75bhp. While the new Honda City that will be launched in 2013 will get the same engine with a power rating of 85-90bhp. The introduction of the new City means, that the Japanese manufacturer will also change the Jazz as both are based on the same platform. The Jazz will also get a 70-75bhp engine.

There have been speculations of the Brio MPV or the Jazz crossover, but Honda will go with the Brio MPV from what are sources confirm. This MPV will be compact and will compete with the likes of Ertiga. It has 7 seats and will also get the 85-90bhp power rating 1.5-litre diesel engine.

Honda is also working on diesel engines for higher segments. These engines will be a derivative of the newly developed 1.5-litre i-DTEC oil burner with different bore and stroke ratios. The company has began work on these new mills and we can expect the Civic and Accord to get diesels in their next generations. However, the upcoming CR-V in January will not get a diesel option.
