Honda unveils new seven-seater N7X crossover as BR-V replacement


Honda has completely revamped the N7X concept. The new three-row crossover is marketed as a replacement for the BR-V. The novelty looks more or less ready for mass production. Let’s talk about this in more detail.

At first glance, the design of the Honda N7X concept carries familiar brand design cues found on the current City, the recently unveiled HR-V and the larger CR-V SUVs. The new Honda N7X concept features a vertical nose with a folding hood and a chrome grille with multiple louvres, which is framed by slender circular headlights.

A striking Honda logo takes center stage and the concept features dual LEDs on the top of the headlight and on the bumper. A tough-looking bumper with a faux skid plate and brushed aluminum accents gives the N7X a brutal SUV look.

The new Honda N7X will spawn a new 7-seater model and borrow stylistic cues from Honda’s latest offerings. It is expected to come with a 1.5-liter petrol engine.

The round wheel arches have a black lining that extends across the entire surface of the vehicle. Overall, the N7X concept looks a lot like Honda’s larger three-row models such as the CR-V. At the rear, the N7X Concept, like the City, has received signature LED taillights.

Honda hasn’t released details on the powertrain though. The N7X, based on the latest generation City, will share its powertrains with the popular sedan. The N7X, in its production form, will first go on sale in Indonesia. It is expected to come with a 1.5-liter petrol engine mated to either a manual or CVT automatic transmission.
