Honda Cars India confirmed their line-up for the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo today. The company stated that they will have 13 models up on display at the Auto Expo. This includes Honda BR-V, Accord, Jazz Racing Concept, Project 2&4 powered by RC213V, ASIMO, Goldwing, McLaren Honda MP4-30, Brio, Jazz, Amaze, City, Mobilio, and CR-V.
Apart from this, Honda Cars India Limited have also announced a hike in car prices by up to INR 10,000. Price of Honda Brio has been increased by INR 2,000 while the Amaze compact sedan prices which ranged between INR 5.26 lakhs to INR 8.56 lakhs is increased by INR 3,500.
Honda Cars India has also increased prices of the Jazz premium hatchback by INR 4,700 while cost of Honda Mobilio MPV and City sedan has become costlier by INR 3,000. Honda CR-V prices have been increased by INR 10,000 with a current price tag of INR 25.23 lakhs.
Rising input costs have been cited as reasons for increased prices. However, price hikes at the start of the year is something most automakers have been resorting to over the past few years. Increased prices at the beginning of the year allow companies to clear off stocks left over from last year.
Speaking about their Auto Expo line-up – Honda BR-V was unveiled last year at the Indonesian Motor Show. It will be launched in India later this year with a choice of petrol and diesel engine options. To rival the likes of Hyundai Creta and Renault Duster, Honda BR-V will strengthen Honda’s portfolio.
The second important car from Honda is the new Accord. Now in its ninth generation, Honda is expected to launch the new Accord in India later this year.
