Honda has rejigged their India lineup with BS6 transition.
Honda was about to launch the fifth generation City in India in early April. However, the ongoing nationwide lockdown has pushed the launch of the car further.
Meanwhile, the Japanese carmaker has made some changes to their existing lineup. First of all, they have completely discontinued the Honda Accord. It was imported via CBU and because of the high pricing there were very few takers and the engine wasn’t BS6 compliant either.
The carmaker has pulled the plug on the BR-V as well. Seems like Honda is not planning to updated the BR-V with BS6 engine options due to low demand of the car.
Honda has also discontinued the diesel variants of the Civic and CR-V temporarily. Both the cars are currently being offered with only petrol engine options. The 1.6-litre i-DTEC diesel engine is likely to be re-launched after it is updated with BS6.
Honda started phasing out the Jazz in February and is now preparing to introduce it with BS6 compliant petrol and diesel engines. It will continue to get the same 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol and 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engine options.
We don’t expect the Jazz to come with major cosmetic changes and feature additions. The premium hatchback is likely to get updated only with the BS6 engines.
The Honda WR-V facelift launch is around the corner as well, the carmaker started accepting bookings for the same in the first week of March. It was supposed to go on sale in first week of April but the launch has been postponed due to the lockdown.
