Production Honda Concept D On Track For Beijing Auto Show Debut

The Honda Concept D is scheduled to put its production clothes on for the 2016 Beijing Auto Show.

Based on the study revealed last year, it will be available exclusively in the Chinese car market, where it is expected to arrive in late 2016.

CarNewsChina reports that the new Honda SUV will go up against vehicles such as the Ford Edge, the Toyota Highlander and the upcoming Volkswagen CrossBlue and it will be powered by two petrol engines, a 2.0-liter turbo and a naturally aspirated 2.4-liter.

There will be rear-and four-wheel drive versions, all available with a six-speed automatic transmission.

In terms of design, the production Concept D will remain similar to the study, but rumor has it that the grille, lighting units and bumpers will be slightly redesigned. No images of the cabin have been released by Honda, so we cannot put our finger on its look and features.

Prices for the new Honda SUV should start at around 250,000 yuan ($38,000), but for the range-topper, prospective buyers will have to pay approximately 425,000 yuan ($65,000).

Honda officials didn’t comment on a possible production version of the Concept D for Europe or North America.
