As the new year commences, automobile enthusiasts begin 2016 with renewed expectations from the automakers. While 2015 saw some successful launches of cars like Creta, Baleno and Kwid, 2016 is also ready to deliver some good offerings. We have compiled a list of cars which are predicted from the auto giant, Honda, in the year 2016. Honda BR-V
Honda is expected to launch a compact SUV, BR-V, in Auto Expo 2016. Although it will have the same platform as that of Mobilio, BR-V has a more upright stance. The car is awaited to have the 1.5-litre engine from Amaze with a 6-speed manual transmission. The automobile might also get a CVT automatic gearbox which employs Honda’s Earth Dreams technology. Our guess for the launch price is in the range of Rs. 9 lacs to 12 lacs.

If everything goes as per the plan, Honda should be able to reveal a facelift of Brio in 2016. It is pegged to get the same 1.2-litre petrol engine employed in the current Brio but Honda can come up with a new 1.1-litre diesel engine based on company's i-DTEC line. The car is expected to offer automatic variants along with the manual ones for those who who love two-pedal driving.
The automobile is pegged to be launched at the end of 2016 and we expect the price to be in between Rs. 4.5 lacs and Rs. 6.5 lacs. Honda City
Honda is ready to launch a facelift of its iconic sedan, City. Predicted to be revealed at Auto Expo 2016, the car is anticipated to be mechanically similar with the 2013 City. City 2016 is pegged to bear major aesthetic changes inside and out. We expect the launch price to be in between Rs. 8.5 lacs and Rs. 11 lacs. Honda Accord Hybrid
Honda is all set to bring back its premium sedan, Accord, in 2016. First launched in 2001, the car’s sales were finally halted in 2013 due to some reasons. Unlike Honda Civic hybrid, the Japanese automaker is anticipated not to bring Accord Hybrid as Completely Built Unit (CBU). The units are rather likely to be manufactured at local plants. We expect the launch price to be in the range of Rs. 30 lacs to Rs. 34 lacs. The car is already on sale in the global market.
