It’s no news that Honda is actively revising its line-up for the Indian market and will likely abandon vehicles such as the Jazz, City 4th Gen, and WR-V in the near future. However, the brand will be replacing these vehicles with the introduction of two new vehicles ahead of the approaching holiday season, and here are all the information you need to know.
