Keyboards have been chattering ever since a mystery model was teased on Honda Indonesia's Facebook page a few days ago.

The first teaser image

All we know about it thus far is that they'll be hosting a world premiere of said new model this coming Monday, 3-May 2021.

The rumour mill has been working overtime following the announcement. Now, the page further sends things into hyperdrive with this second photo, showing off the upcoming car's tail lights. 

Adjusting the picture still doesn't give away too much, apart from highlighting the Honda City-esque tail lamps more. 

What could it be?

The newest HR-V made its world debut in February 2021

For starters, this will be a world premiere, so it definitely won't be anything that's already been seen.

This is the latest Civic

We can safely rule out the 11th-gen, FE-series 2022 Honda Civic, all-new Honda HR-V, and the recently-updated-for-Indonesia Perodua Axia-class Honda Brio.

The City Hatchback - coming to Malaysia this year

And no, it's not the Honda City Hatchback either - that's already been launched in the archipelago.

The current BR-V was first introduced in 2016, facelifted in 2019

Which leaves it to either be the Honda Mobilio, or a new Honda BR-V.

The Mobilio is even older - this is the 2nd generation, a model that dates back to 2014

Both models are related, and both were last updated in 2019. There's also rumours abound that both models are to be combined into one.

But wait...Honda WR-V?

We still don't know for certain yet, but it can't be ruled out completely either. Last year, we reported that an all-new Honda WR-V could be in the works for the Indonesian market.

It's said to face the Toyota Raize and Daihatsu Rocky there, so think a roughly Perodua Ativa-sized car.

The current-gen WR-V is sold in the Indian and South American markets, and it's already five years old - if it comes to Indonesia, we might be seeing a new generation.
