Honda has teased its upcoming new mid-size SUV on its official social media handles. The concept version of this new mid-size SUV from Honda will make its global debut in Indonesia at the Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS), scheduled to take place between November 11-21, 2021. While the Japanese manufacturer has been tight-lipped about the details of the product, Honda’s new mid-size SUV is expected to share its underpinnings and mechanicals with the seven-seater BR-V that was recently revealed in Indonesia.
Next week, we have exciting news to share.

The teaser images of Honda’s new mid-size SUV reveal some of its exterior elements. At the front, it will get a high-raised bonnet, all-LED headlamps with LED DRLs, and flared wheel arches. The side profile will house the alloy wheels, roof rails, and the SUV is expected to measure around 4.1-4.2 metres in length. Moreover, it gets a sloping roofline towards the rear which gives it a coupe-like appeal. There are also LED taillamps along with a thin strip of LED running across the length of its boot.

Honda has not revealed any teaser images of its interiors yet but this mid-size SUV is expected to share its dashboard with the seven-seater BR-V. In terms of mechanicals, it is expected to be powered by a 1.5-litre petrol engine that churns out 121hp of power and 145Nm of peak torque. The engine might be paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox and a 7-step CVT. This is the same powertrain that does its duty in the Honda BR-V too. The company might also offer a 1.5-litre mild-hybrid petrol engine with Honda’s e:HEV technology in this mid-size SUV.
