All-new models from Honda coming soon to India

Slotted between the City and the Civic, the all-new Crider would be the one to look out for. Also joining newer entrants would be a full size MPV - M-01 and a smaller MPV based on the Jade concept

The all-new Honda Amaze shows the new direction Honda is heading in. While earlier the Jap giant stuck to specific segments, things have changed drastically over the years with more and more segments sprouting out, making competition even fiercer. Honda is finally going with the flow with the Amaze being the first to bring in the change. But that’s not it, in fact there is more.

The car that you see above is the all-new Crider. While it might look dimensionally similar to a City, this one actually slots between the City and the Civic. While most might say there isn’t enough space to slot another model in there, Honda would say otherwise. The Crider aims to spawn a new upper middle class segment and is designed especially to take on emerging markets. Expect typical Honda traits like spacious insides, quality materials and not to mention some brilliant i-VTEC and i-DTEC power plants.

 

Along with the Crider Honda has also shown two more people mover concepts. The first and the more India relevant one is the M-01. Looking at the concept images, it’s easy to note that the M-01 is about the size of an Innova and will be competing in the full size MPV bracket. Style-wise, the concept does not promise anything path breaking with a typical MPV silhouette. The rakish windscreen along with the futuristic front does give it a very nice overall profile though.
