The compact crossover for the Thai market is available only with the 1.8-litre four-cylinder i-VTEC petrol engine which belts out 141 PS (139 bhp) at 6,500 rpm and 172 Nm of torque. The motor is mated to a CVT and is available only in the FWD configuration for now.

Market positioning in Thailand is above the Ford EcoSport and Nissan Juke which is considered as a deliberate attempt by Honda to keep the doors open for the rumored Brio-based mini SUV. The crossover’s prices range from 890,000 Baht to 1.045 million Baht (INR 16.74 lakhs to INR 19.66 lakhs).
