Honda recently revealed the concept model of the new Honda N7X SUV in Indonesia, this new SUV potentially will be the replacement of long-running Honda BR-V. The new N7X is highly inspired by the new Honda City sedan and imbues its identical engine and many features. The 7-seater Honda N7X concept displayed will most like be quite similar to the production-ready model which will be making its debut first in the Indonesian market and might also be introduced in India at some later state, as Honda in India lacks variety after the Noida plant shut down last year, which also meant the closure of the production of two of its cars – Honda Civic and Honda CR-V.

 Talking about the design of the Honda N7X, it will most likely be carrying a large greenhouse, chrome front grille with Honda symbol at the centre, sleek split headlamps with embedded L-shaped split LED DRLs, wide air intakes, muscular character lines, side body cladding, grey-coloured roof rails, flowing LED tail lights, faux rear skid plate and dual-tone alloy wheels. While the interior still remains a mystery however it will surely be inspired by the new Honda City which is the benchmark car for Hyundai.

For the engine specification, as mentioned earlier the 7-seater Honda N7X SUV will be borrowing its engine from the 5th gen Honda City so the car will be rocking a 1.5-litre four-cylinder i-VTEC petrol engine that will be able to generate a maximum power of 121 hp at 6600 rpm and a maximum torque of 145 Nm at 4300 rpm, which will be coupled with a six speed manual or automatic transmission option.

Talking about the rivals of the N7X, in the Indonesian market, the car will be locking horns with similar-sized 7-seater sedans like the Toyota Avanza, Daihatsu Xenia and other family-based seven-seater SUVs.
