2019 Honda Concept D price And Release Date – The production model will be manufactured in China and sold by Guangqi Honda and Dongfeng Honda, two of the brand’s most important joint ventures in that country. The big news here is the Concept D previews the company’s future flagship model in China, positioned above the CR-V.There’s no word as to when this new crossover will hit auto shows in production clothes, but, until new details surface, we might as well have a closer look at the Concept D and its outlandish design.Having confirmed plans to bring the Civic hatchback to the United States in 2016, Honda is also looking to enhance its lineup in other important markets as well.
2019 Honda Concept D Future
In China, for instance, one of the world’s largest automotive markets in 2015, Honda Concept D wants to launch a new crossover in the future. Previewing the new product that appears to be larger than the CR-V, yet significantly smaller than the U.S.-built Pilot, is the Concept D, recently showcased at the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show. Details are slim, but Honda promises the Concept D will morph into a “top-end SUV model that offers high-quality driving and a spacious cabin
2019 Honda Concept D Exterior And Interior
Although Honda Concept D is known for launching near-production-ready concept cars, I have strong doubts the production version of the Concept D will keep most of these outlandish features. Expect the proportions to remain the same, but forget about the grille, headlamps, the beefy fenders and the giant rear wing.But while it looks massive and ready to join Optimus Prime in the fight against the Decepticons, the Concept D does showcase a dash of sportiness thanks to its sharply raked rear window, the large wing atop the tailgate, and the floating roof design. The gold paint and matching wheel spokes further enhance its appearance.Since the Japanese also mentioned the Honda Concept D previews a “top-end” model, I expect the production car to sport five seats (seven are out of the question due to Honda’s aim to provide class-leading space) and a host of premium amenities and tech features. I wouldn’t be surprised if the SUV’s interior turns out to be inspired by the CR-V’s, but seasoned with a few luxury bits and unique styling cues.
2019 Honda Concept D Engine
The smaller 1.8-liter, four-cylinder found in the XR-V, an HR-V compact crossover also built by Dongfeng, is also a possibility. As is the case with most vehicles sold exclusively in China, Honda Concept D will focus on fuel economy rather than performance with the production version of the Concept D.The lack of info continues in the drivetrain department, as it seems Honda has yet to decide which engine would better suit the Concept D. If I were to take a guess, though, I’d say the SUV will borrow its drivetrain from the CR-V, meaning customers will have to choose between the 2.0- and 2.4-liter four-pots
2019 Honda Concept D Price And Release Date
Arguably one of the wildest concept cars Honda has showcased recently, the Concept D is as eye-catching as they get, although it’s not necessarily a beauty contest winner. And even though the production version will keep very few of the concept’s catchy exterior features, it will be as important for Honda as it will grant the company access to a new segment. Unfortunately, the Japanese plans for whatever the Concept D will spawn only include the Chinese market.
