Auto-sales-statistics-China-Honda_Avancier-SUVMonthly and annual sales figures for the Honda Avancier in China.

The Avancier is a large SUV on the same platform as the imported Honda Pilot, positioned above the locally produced CR-V in China. As Honda has two JV’s in China, each wants a similar successful model as the other, which often leads to two versions of a single model being offered in China, like the City and Greiz or the Vezel and XR-V. A similar strategy is used for the large SUV, as the Avancier, produced by Guangzhou-Honda, has a sister model made by Dongfeng-Honda: the UR-V. It sounds a bit ineffective to have wo almost identical cars produced by different JVs and sold in the same showrooms, but with the smaller crossovers it works, as Honda sells a ton of each of them. It just might have made more sense to make one of these two large crossovers a 7-seater, but then again that would benefit one partner.

The Avancier is powered by a 1,5T with 193hp/240Nm, mated to a CVT and an optional 2,0T with 272hp/370Nm mated to a ZF 9AT, 4WD is standard on all versions. Dimensions are 4.816/1.942/1.669mm with a wheelbase of 2.820mm. Prices run from 269.800 yuan (€36.800,- / US$ 39,000) up to 328.900 yuan (€45.000,- / US$ 47,750), similar to the Buick Envision and a bit above the prices of the Toyota Highlander.

Car sales statistics from China only include domestic production and exclude imported models.
