Honda's plans for Australia    (Score: 1, Normal) 05-16-2018 08:19

Looks like the new Accord is arriving in 2019 and will be sourced from Thailand. A revised HRV will also appear soon and a new Jazz in 2020. As well, there's an interesting note about the Honda Pilot. Has Australia also been swept by the CUV/SUV craze that has taken over North America ? If they could bring the Ridgeline to Australia would it be a success ?

When you consider the number of "utes" on our roads, it's a no-brainier!

Forget the Pilot, they need to bring the MDX and RDX out here. The first generation MDX was actually sold downunder for a very short while, and was an instant success, except it bombed in Japan, and Honda couldn't [or didn't want to] make the numbers work for an Australian only RHD model. I can still remember the gnashing of salesmens teeth when that was announced.

As for the Accord, I sincerely hope they polish up on it's looks before dumping them in Australian showrooms..... Every Australian review of the CTR has a line something like "despite it's looks, this car is brilliant".

Surely the "Black Mamba"* is the way into the market for truck there.... and they should rename it that too....

*TonyE Acronym for Ridgeline

best not to bring it to the UK with that name. That's already used by a company that sells toys for female self - pleasure ....

Where's the problem?? I'd buy the "ute" just for the association. :)
