Both Honda sedans and SUVs are becoming popular in India. In India, these cars are manufactured and marketed through Honda Siel Cars India Ltd., a joint effort of Honda Motor Co. Ltd. Japan and Siel Ltd. The car maker first stepped on the Indian road in 1997. It is 13 years now and we see Honda cars everywhere with their glossy looks and relaxing features. Honda has profitably built a positive reputation in India. Also to be noted, all Indian Honda car models run on petrol.
The facelifted Honda City targeting the middle class consumers was reintroduced in 2003 as Honda City ZX. The Civic made it to the Indian roads in July 2006. The car maker then brought in high-end and costlier models; SUVs and sedans. The CR-V SUV, was launched in November 2006, and Honda Accord debuted in January 2007. As of now, Honda City, Civic and Accord models are produced in India, while Honda CRV is imported from Japan. Let’s have a look at the Honda cars in India.
The Honda City Zx is certainly an athletic sedan that has well-thought-of looks and features. In India, this car is available as 4 variants, the Exi, Gxi, CVT and VTEC. The car is perfect for mid-sized Indian families and bears attractive prices too.
Next, we have the Civic sedan that is popular in India for its pricing, remarkable mileage, eco-friendly features and high performance. The sedan is priced between Rs 12 Lakh and Rs 13.5 Lakh and the Civic is definitely worth this price. With the introduction of this car in India, Honda has earned itself a very impressive reputation for reliability. Like the Honda City, the Honda Civic too is available as four variants in India. They are Honda Civic 1.8V MT, Honda Civic 1.8S MT, Honda Civic 1.8S AT and Honda Civic 1.8V AT. While AT in the variants stands for automatic transmission, MT stands for manual transmission.
The Honda Accord is like a piece of art priced between Rs 16 Lakh and Rs 19 Lakh. The sedan is a high performer giving an exceptional output beyond expectation. The hot Indian models of the Honda Accord include Accord Vti-L M/T, Accord Vti-L A/T and the Accord V6. The car is spacious and can accommodate an entire Indian family.
As of now, Honda India sells just one SUV, the Honda CRV, in two petrol variants that are fully imported. Honda CR-V is available with the automatic and manual transmission options. There can be nothing like the CR-V when it comes to advanced features and comfort. This Honda car can hold more than the average Indian family size.
Honda cars in the Indian market have been exhibiting record sales of year after year. The complete inventory of Honda cars in India including the City, Civic, Accord and CR-V are selling well. However, Honda City ZX is the car known to Indian consumers for a longer period and shows exceptional sales figures. Now that a new car from the stables of Honda India will soon enter the market, it may be the next car to bring along good fortune for the car maker.
