Codenamed N7X (New 7 Seater eXcitement), Honda says the concept was developed as a car that combines a pleasant driving experience and premium comfort.
The Japanese carmaker may consider production-spec N7X for the Indian market, especially after the BR-V was phased out. In that case, the 7-seater Honda would lock horns with Tata Safari and Hyundai Alcazar.
The carmaker hasn’t revealed much about N7X, however, it is based on the same platform as the new City, and is likely to pack the 1.5-litre petrol (CVT/manual) for the Asian market.
The N7X concept car was designed and developed by Honda R&D Asia Pacific based on extensive studies from consumers in various countries, including Indonesia.
This concept car adopts the various advantages of the Multi-Purpose Vehicle (MPV) and Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) to create a complete 7-seater car for use in various road conditions. Offering the delightful driving performance typical of Honda, the N7X Concept combines the premium comfort and spaciousness typical of an MPV with the toughness and style of an SUV.
From the outside, the N7X Concept features a sleek body with sharp lines, a sturdy hood and large tires to complete its strong yet elegant appearance. Dedicated to the X-generation family, this concept car is designed to provide pride and joy to its users, while promoting a lifestyle that is balanced between personal activities and family togetherness.
Takehiro Watanabe, President Director of PT Honda Prospect Motor said, “The N7X is our concept of what a 7-seater car should be, which not only offers pleasant driving performance but also the serenity and comfort of a premium car for all occupants. We are very proud to make Indonesia the first in the world to introduce the N7X Concept, a concept that will redefine the categories of cars and driving pleasure.”
