KUALA LUMPUR: Honda is set to launch an all-new SUV in the Indonesian market on September 21 as its official website has a live countdown showcasing the silhouette of the upcoming car. But, which model is this? Well, it is said to be the production-spec form of the N7X concept unveiled back in May but according to the Indonesian sources, it would be the next-gen Honda BR-V. However, the Japanese automaker earlier stated the N7X will sit above the BR-V in its lineup.

The upcoming three-row SUV shares the underpinnings with Honda City with a claim to offer an amazing blend of SUV and MPV body styles. It is reportedly to borrow mechanicals from the sedan as well, which means there will be a 1.5-litre 4-cylinder naturally petrol engine kicking out a maximum power of 121 bhp and a peak torque of 145 Nm. A 6-speed manual and a CVT automatic will likely be on the gearbox options list. 

Besides this, the reports also suggest the availability of a fuel-efficient hybrid powertrain that the automaker offers with the sedan in some of the Asian countries.

The Honda N7X is expected to be offered in four variants -  S, E, Prestige, and Prestige HS with different transmission choices.
