Seven-Seater Honda N7X SUV Concept Revealed
Honda N7X 7-seater concept SUV breaks cover. The new three-row concept from Honda was revealed in a virtual event held in Jakarta, Indonesia, and is touted as a replacement for the BR-V in the Indonesian markets. While the Vehicle is shown in concept form, it looks more or less production-ready. Motor Gyan tell you more about the new SUV concept.
Honda N7X Concept: Styling and Design
At first glance, the styling of the new 7-seater SUV concept gets familiar Honda design cues that are seen in the current-generation City, the recently unveiled HR-V and the bigger CR-V sport utility vehicles. The three-row Honda N7X concept gets an upright nose with a clamshell bonnet and a multiple chromed horizontal grille that is flanked by slim wraparound headlamps. A prominent brand’s logo takes center place and the concept gets a dual-LED Daytime Running Lights setup, with one placed on top of the headlamp and the other one on the bumper. A tough-looking chin with silver-finished skid plates up front and rear gives the N7X concept a butch SUV-like appearance.
On the sides, the Honda N7X SUV concept gets a large glasshouse that tapers at the back and a shoulder line that goes slightly upward. There is a very prominent character line that runs across its side, starting from the headlamp area and nearly merging with the horizontally placed wraparound tail lamps. You could also notice the boot integrated spoiler, shark fin antenna, black wheel arch cladding, and dual-tone alloy wheels in the Honda N7X concept. Overall, the look of the 7-seater SUV concept is very similar to larger three-row Honda offerings like the CR-V. At the back, the new SUV concept gets signature LED elements on the tail lamps just like the City.
No information or images are available of the vehicle’s interior but the near-production concept should mean that the latest gen of Honda’s connectivity tech and safety systems should feature in the 7-seater N7X SUV too.
Honda N7X Concept: Expected Powertrain
While the manufacturer has not revealed many details about the powertrain system, the N7X SUV, being based on the latest-generation City, will share its powerplants with the popular sedan. The N7X in its production form, will go on sale in the Indonesian market first and is expected to come with a 1.5L petrol engine mated to either a manual or a CVT automatic gearbox.
Honda N7X Concept: Production Version
We expect Honda to reveal the production version of this SUV model in the coming months. According to Honda Indonesia, this new model will replace the BR-V in Indonesia. As far as India goes, the carmaker pulled the plug on the slow-selling BR-V and the company currently has no product in the seven-seat category in the Indian market. A production model of the N7X SUV concept could be a good contender for our country. However, there is no update from Honda India’s four-wheeler manufacturer on this vehicle.
