Editor's View of Honda BRV
7 seats, practical and spacious, convenient petrol-CVT, good ride quality
Sub-par interior quality, no parking aids as standard, overpriced
The Honda BR-V is one of the more comfortable 7-seater SUVs/Crossovers in its segment. While it may not have the off-road ability of some of its competition – it makes a good case for itself as an urban crossover.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying BRV
- So many people say brv is narrower compared to other Suvs /mpv but it can easily seat 7 an without any discomfort to any of the passengers or even affecting the performance of the car by that much, you can seat 8 people in the car we have taken trip to Hyderabad to ooty with 8 passengers and we are from Hyderabad and most of cousins are healthy (fat) 5 adults and 3 teenagers were in the car and we managed about 120- 140 kmh speed on the highway and the engine was relaxed and the engine that legendary 1.5 vtec engine is phenomenal superb performance and brv has really good handling steering feel and feedback. So yes brv can seat 8 people, but If you seat 8 people in the car always then I would suggest look into Mahindra marrazo it won't be have as performance ready engine as 1.5 vtec but enough grunt to pull 8 people and its actually made to seat 8, and if you occasionally go on highway and won't really care about performance and handling then new Suzuki ertiga is also a good car but if you need performance handling steering feel superbbrakes then brv is a really good car and it also has more ground clearance than any other car in the price.
- The Honda BR-V is one of the more comfortable 7-seater SUVs/Crossovers in its segment. While it may not have the off-road ability of some of its competition – it makes a good case for itself as an urban crossover. It might not be that well equipped compared to its competition nor have the driving dynamics of its rivals, but it is supremely spacious and about the only car in its segment that can seat seven people.
- You can adjust 8 persons with difficulty but last seat is better for a max of 2 persons
- I think 2.5 Litres (Diesel) because I have driven it for 30 Km after orange light indication of low fuel and blink of last fuel bar was not blinking.
- The whole fuel tank is about 36 litres don't know about the reserve fuel tank don't know even if it has one
- It has a fuel tank capacity of 42 liters and you can expect 4-5 liters reserve fuel in the tank.
- Well if your talking about the diesel engine than its okay I would say mediocre well probably bad compare to creta or nexon, but if we are talking about the petrol engine then we'll the perfomance of the petrol brv is just good yes it doesn't have low end performance but you actually won't feel it because of the gear ratio you can out it in 2nd gear and drive in traffic without changing down but on highway my God the performance is brilliant 120 hp and 145 Nm @4600 rpm and rwd lines at 7600 rpm just when you get past the 4000rpm mark you feel the acceleration and brilliance of the 1.5 vtec engine in the brv and 0-100 kmh takes place in 10.8 seconds it's slightly slower than Honda city because brv is a bit heavier, ride and handling is good specially high speed stability is awesome even at high speed of 150 kmh the car feels planted handling is good for the size of the car bodyroll is their but very well contained, most people would say it doesn't have pickup but it does but at the top end you have to take it upto 4500 rpm and you'll enjoy the car and when carrying 8 passengers it still has good amount of pickup I have actually tester 0-100 kmh while having 7 passengers in the car and it did it in 11. 7 seconds, so perfomance is good but some people prefer Hyundai 1.6 diesel and can't blame them because 1.6 has good low end but okaish top end
- I own a CVT, most people say it's like jagjit Singh, but that isn't true, I have seen 0-100 in 11 secs or less in D mode. S mode is fun only when you get used to it, it isn't sluggish at all, it all depends on the driver and how well you know your car. Overall satisfactory on Indian roads and traffic conditions. I do Bangalore to Mangalore a lot and I can say it performs well. If you are an enthusiast I would say I have given XC40 a run for it's money
- The performance is better than my earlier vehicle. My earlier car was esteem. It was giving 12 within the city. BRV is giving 13 within the city. In terms Security aspects, it is very secure and technology has been used very effeciently.
- May be in 2021

Me and my family has enjoyed every bit of a second in a brv it's so easy to drive in city traffics, on highway it pulls and have more than adequate performance for car that big I have seen 0-100 kmh in 10.11 seconds on my car which is petrol vtec engine, got a touchscreen optional from the dealer and it works fine,1on long journeys about 1200 km or more were never a trouble for our family of 8, and car does keeps pulling and to its top speed and you won"t even feel your pushing the car it so refined, and when we don"t push the car to hard and doesn"t hit the vtec we got 16.5 kml and sometimes 16.9 kml on a manual transmission that is more than what Honda has stated
I have been driving BR-V since July 2016 and have been in love with it ever since! A very practical and versatile car it is with zero body roll on hilly terrain and excellent ground clearance makes every ditch easy. I choose this over XUV500, Scorpio and Innova (previous generation) and am glad about my decision. It offers great space like a full-size SUV, while comfort of a midsize sedan. Fuel efficiency in Diesel is superb. Overall, a great buy which most Indians have not appreciated simply because of its long design, which in practical use, perhaps helps the car to remain stable.
I would say this as my excellent choice with respect to family car, performance, safety and still stylish too. I drove my BRV (my kids call it as ditto) on or within 2K rpm and to my surprise in highway, it gave me 18+ Kmpl. On an avg, my highway drive is 16-17Kmpl. Have experienced good even fully loaded condition and as well single. I LOVE it.. I feel only stuff that could have made even more rich would be the addition of features (especially cruise control, auto rain wipe, dash board and infotainment with better features)..
Its been 3 Year I have this car and its simply amazing. Its versatile, I can use it as a 5 seater with more boot space and 7 seater when I need to accommodate more family members. Its soft on my pocket where it come to fuel economy and maintenance, Its stylish and sports a premium look. Its a Panther on the road, it gives the mush needed boost when accelerated. As I said its simply amazing a perfect family vehicle. Totally satisfied :)
I hv been driving White colour Honda BRV (Petrol-Automatic) since September"2016. It gives me milage of 11 kmpl. Perfect SUV. Nice ground clearance. No noice in cabin. Very good SUV for long distance. It looks very stylish.
Excellent car comfort with diriving
Easy to drive, compact size for parking and in city. 7 seat option, honda badge, decent service, good mileage etc etc
It's is nice. But the mileage is less than what is displayed on the meter.
I feel very Happy with brv.It is like a family.If it is with us great feel like royal.
I brought My HONDA BRV Ivtec CVT 2016 never had any issue until today ,very comfortable and good fuel efficient car. I am so happy with my BRV automatic varient. Awesome.

Honda BRV Highlights
The Honda BR-V isn’t an SUV in the traditional sense. It looks like something that would sit between an MPV and an SUV, given its 7-seater configuration. Honda BR-V is up against the Maruti Ertiga and Hyundai Creta among others. This Honda is priced in the range of Rs 9.06- 13.23 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and offers a very sporty package for ferrying the families together. The exterior design is highlighted by high 210 mm of ground clearance and the subtle body cladding all-around adds a nice flair to BR-V’s exteriors. Inside the cabin, there are lot of thoughtful touches including roof mounted air-conditioning vents and flexi-seats. Unlike other 7-seater vehicles, Honda BR-V is genuinely spacious and offer utmost comfort in all the three rows. The time-tested 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engine delivering the output of 118 PS / 145 Nm and 100 PS/ 200 Nm respectively works for BR-V. 6-speed manual transmission is standard in both petrol and diesel along with CVT gearbox which is optional in the petrol guise.
The BR-V comes with a choice of two engines - both are 1.5-litre units that get a 6-speed manual gearbox (with the petrol also getting a CVT gearbox and paddle shifters). The diesel is a turbocharged 4-cylinder unit makes 100PS of peak power and 200Nm of peak torque. The petrol is also a 4-cylinder i-VTEC unit that makes 119PS of peak power and 145Nm of peak torque.
The BR-V is available in a total of 9 variants - 5 petrol and 4 diesel. The petrol variants are priced between Rs 9.22 lakh and 12.48 lakh while the diesel starts at Rs 10.16 lakh and goes all the way up to Rs 13.39 lakh (all prices ex-showroom Delhi). In terms of standard equipment, the BR-V is rather well equipped except for the base E variant. Projector headlamps, tilt steering, reclineable middle row, dual front airbags and ABS (not available on E petrol) are standard across the range. Features like rear parking sensors, sliding middle row, climate control, three row AC and electrically adjustable ORVMs are available on variants that sit above the E. The rear parking camera and the Digipad touchscreen infotainment system, however, are only reserved for the top VX variant.
BRV Exterior and Interior
The word crossover defines the BR-V perfectly. The sleek front comes with a large chrome grille and a well styled bumper that gets a silver skid plate. The headlights are well detailed and get a slash daytime running light, a projector headlamp and a separate module for the halogen high beam. Plus, the large 16-inch wheels that come with a polished finished on the top-of-the-line V variant look rather good.
The side profile, however, is quite reminiscent of the Mobilio which isn’t necessarily a bad thing but isn’t a plus point either. The rear tail lamps look rather good and the red strip running between them is a unique design feature.
The cabin of the BR-V is genuinely spacious when it comes to comparing it with other cars of its category. All variants get black interiors with the top-of-the-line variants getting a full leather pack which includes seats, side rests and a leather wrapped steering wheel and gear knobs. The middle row gets a 60-40 split and a one-touch folding setup which makes the last row easily accessible. Headspace in the middle row is also good and the large window makes the cabin feel very airy. However, there just isn’t enough room to fit three large adults in the middle row and it feels pretty much as spacious as the likes of your average compact sedan or hatchback in terms of overall shoulder space. The third row is 50:50 split and can accommodate two adults in relative comfort, provided the journey is short. In terms of cabin layout, the design is simple and the horizontal layout works rather well. Also, you get climate control in all variants above the E grade. But the touchscreen infotainment system is reserved for the VX variant only and even then doesn’t come with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay connectivity. There’s no automatic headlamps or automatic wipers or cruise control on offer either.
Honda BRV Competitors
Maruti Suzuki S-Cross: Maruti's premium crossover suffers from the fact that it does not look like an SUV. It is a premium offering with a good amount of standard equipment, good space for five people and their luggage and a frugal 1.3-litre diesel motor.
Renault Duster : The car that started it all, the Renault Duster is the only modern crossover in the segment to feature an AWD system. Its butch design, adequate space, CVT transmission (petrol), AMT (diesel) and all-weather ability make it score a lot of brownie points in the segment. Interior quality and limited service network make it less appealing though.
Nissan Terrano : The Duster's better-looking cousin (for some), the Terrano suffers seems too overpriced for its own good. It does get a diesel AMT variant though, which is a good option for those looking for a convenient urban SUV.
Mahindra Scorpio : The Mahindra Scorpio, despite being a 'proper' ladder-frame SUV, is also priced in the same range as the Hyundai Creta. While it may use an old-school philosophy, it is a thoroughly modern SUV.
Tata Safari Storme : The oldest nameplate in this segment, the Safari Storme feels that way too even though it wears a slightly new skin. The Safari still has its road presence, ride quality and interior space to boast about, but its appeal is now limited to those who seem reluctant to let go of the past.
Hyundai Creta : There’s not much wrong with the Creta. It’s spacious, is built well inside out and drives well too. It’s got an appeal very few of its competitors can match.
The Honda BR-V might not be that well equipped compared to its competition nor have the driving dynamics of its rivals, but it is supremely spacious and about the only car in its segment that can seat seven people.
