Honda teases a new crossover SUV at the BR-V digital world premiere
The vehicle was shown covered in red cloth with its DRLs on, but the profile clearly suggest that it will be a crossover SUV. There is no word on what vehicle is there under the wrap but its likely going to be an all-new product since Honda has released a new generation BR-V as well as HR-V earlier this year and a new CR-V can’t be this small either.
A new smaller crossover will help Honda compete against the likes of Toyota Raize and Daihatsu Rocky which are doing quite well in Indonesian market. There is also a possibility that Honda will launch a smaller 5-seater version of the all-new 7-seat BR-V which has just made its debut in Indonesia. According OtoDriver, an unnamed source within the company previously said:
“The all-new BR-V is a special car. It will become the “parent” of a new Honda model in future. There will be a small SUV which will be developed using this platform.”
The website previously reported that the new vehicle will either adopt the WR-V moniker (acting as a second generation model) or get a new ZR-V name that was trademarked last year.
