7 Seat Honda N7X SUV Design Leak - India Launch as 2022 BR-V
Upcoming 7 Seater Honda N7X ("Elevate") SUV Production Version Images Leaked - India Launch as 2022 New Generation BR-V to Rival Alcazar & Hector Plus?
New patent images have revealed the production version of the much-awaited 7-seater SUV from Honda, the N7X. The N7X is expected to be launched in South East Asia as next generation Honda BR-V in August,2021. As seen from the leaked images, the SUV looks similar to the concept design showcased earlier this year.
Design wise the N7X has a well proportioned SUV look unlike the MPV design of the 1st generation BR-V. The N7X has a longer wheelbase for a roomier interior space and a big grille along with a thick chrome lining at the top for a premium SUV appeal. There are sharp and angular headlamps too along with cladding and roof-rails of course. The rear seems to be similar to the first gen Creta with the tail-lamps which are wide.
2022 Upcoming Honda N7X SUV Engine, Transmission Specification & India Launch Date
The N7X production version has a lot of potential and would be also replacing the BR-V in India since it was discontinued long time back. The new SUV will also share engines with the Honda City including the 1.5l petrol along with the CVT gearbox. The interior design will be similar to the new HR-V with a free-standing 10 inch touchscreen infotainment system with physical buttons and dials for the climate control. It will most likely carry over all the comfort and infotainment features offered in the new City along with some additonal features like hands free tailgate and advanced driver assistance system.
Honda most likely would be bringing the SUV here to be a three-row 7-seater SUV in India looking at the popularity of the likes of the Hyundai Alcazar, Safari and more. The N7X is expected to be coming to India by Q3/2022 with prices expected to start at around 14 lakhs (ex-showroom). It will be the only SUV sold by Honda in India since the brand stopped selling the CR-V in India. We think this would do well especially with the fuel efficient 1.5l petrol and diesel engines from the City along with the CVT automatic gearbox too. Honda may name the production version of the N7X Concept SUV in India as the ‘Elevate’ based on the recently filed trademark for the name by Honda India.
Honda may also launch the 5 seater Honda HR-V SUV based on the same N7X platform in India to rival Harrier and MG Hector.
