Honda has released official sketches of the brand-new Honda MPV that will be making its world debut at the upcoming 21st Indonesia International Motor Show, scheduled for September 19-29, in Jakarta, Indonesia.
The new MPV was developed specifically for the Asian market by Honda R&D Asia Pacific in Thailand and Honda R&D Indonesia. This model will be the first Honda product in Indonesia to be introduced to the entry level MPV segment, the biggest category in the Indonesian automobile market. The vehicle will offer seven seats in a 3-row configuration on the inside. Under the hood, meanwhile, it will be powered by a 1.5L petrol engine.
Tomoki Uchida, President Director of P.T. Honda Prospect Motor, said: “The new Honda MPV has been developed especially for the needs of customers and road characteristics in Indonesia. This model will also be locally produced in Indonesia as the first product of its new Second Plant in Karawang, scheduled to begin operation in early 2014. This makes the new Honda MPV a very special product for Honda in Indonesia.”
