Featuring a new face with the revised grill, the rest of the car looks pretty much similar to the older generation. Inside, it gets a new dashboard design, a new steering wheel, a push-button ignition, and an updated multi-information display in the instrument cluster. Other highlights include the Aller Clean seats which feature an antiviral upholstery treatment.
Powertrain options start from a a new 660cc engine that produces 57bhp and 65Nm of torque to a more powerful turbocharged unit that outputs around 63bhp. The engines are paired to a CVT gearbox and all-wheel drive is optional. The car is said to return between 25km/L to 27km/L on the Japanese JC08 cycle test.
Riding on a new platform, the car is built using a new technique that helps increase body rigidity and shaves off around 80kg from the previous model which weights around 1000kg.
The Honda SENSING suite is equipped in the car too and has functions such as Collision Mitigation Brake System, traffic sign recognition, and road departure mitigation. Also included in some variants are Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist, and a pedestrian avoidance system.
