Honda has a slew of products lined up for India this year. The all-new City was launched at the start of the year, and Honda's got the budget-MPV and premium hatchback segments covered as well. If there's something it lacks in its current portfolio, it's a compact SUV.

The Vezel's not coming to India anytime soon, but there have been suggestions about a Brio-based mini-SUV that's being readied. Well, now Honda's announced its Delhi Auto Expo line-up, and the most important bit of news is the global premiere of its new crossover concept.

Called the 'Vision XS-1', this one's a utilitarian crossover, which Honda says will feature "sporty styling and outstanding utility space based on Honda’s unique packaging technologies". That's all that Honda has to tell us about the XS-1 for now, but rest assured, it will be a fairly practical vehicle featuring niceties like "magic seats" and touch-operated aircon controls and what have you.

Eye candy at Honda's stall at the Expo will come in the form of the Ferrari 458-baiting NSX concept, and the Accord Hybrid will be present to highlight Honda's technical prowess. Honda will also show the Mobilio and the new Jazz, both of which are scheduled for launch later this year, along with its existing range of cars. And just to top it off, Honda's two-wheeler division will showcase an all-new scooter. We shall have more details closer to the Expo, so stay tuned.
