About Honda BRV

The BR-V is Honda’s challenger in the fast-growing affordable SUV space, currently dominated by the Hyundai Creta and Renault Duster. The BR-V to its advantage is the only seven seater in the segment, and uses the same 1.5-litre DTEC engine as other Hondas, while also getting features and equipment that bring Honda in line with the competition.

Honda BRV Overview

Starting December 2019, Honda is offering an Anytime warranty which can cover the car for up to 10 years and 1.2 lakh km.

Prices for the Honda BR-V might be increased from 1st July as Honda has announced a price hike for majority of its models.This is to offset the effects of the price hike of raw materials as well as compliance to new safety regulations that will come into effect from 1st July 2019.The prices are expected to increase by Rs 10,000-20,000 depending on the model.

Honda will replace the BR-V with the HR-V in India. The HR-V has been on sale in various international markets since 1998 and is now in its second iteration. The HR-V is smaller in dimensions to the BR-V but is longer than its competition. The HR-V in India will be based on the same platform as the Honda City and Jazz, and is expected to come with the same set of 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines from the City as well. Expect the HR-V to be priced from Rs 10 lakh to Rs 16 lakh (ex-showroom India). It will go up against the likes of the Hyundai Creta, the Nissan Kicks as well as the upcoming Duster facelift when launched in India.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying BRV

Q. I am comparing XL6 and BR-V (Auto/CRV Model), considering all the practicalities and reviews for a 6 member family (4 adult + 2 Kids), I found BR-V as better option. How much weightage should be considered for lack of infotainment system n BR-V. What is the safety rating of BR-V. Further, since the sale volume of BR-V is less and speculation of its discontinuation are on, can it be considered as good option now.
  • You have correctly rated BRV as a better choice while comparing it with XL6. I am using BRV ever since it was launched in June 2016 (I have V variant in Diesel, Manual). In my personal opinion, BRV is a very versatile, comfortable, fuel efficient and safe 7-seater when compared to any of Maruti's models be it Ertiga or XL6. Coming to your question, I consider Infotainment system as just an accessory and not a parameter to decide my choice of car. Simply because a vehicle should be good enough to keep the passengers safe in case of an incident rather than not offering the gadgetry, which anyway is present in most of our smartphones. You can always opt for a better after-market product which can replace the stock digipad. On the safety front, Honda BRV is rated 4/5 stars on Global NCAP safety ratings whereas XL6 has not even made an appearance there. This is one of the safest crossover/MUV in the market. If you have any more questions, I'll be glad to answer. Best wishes!
  • Okay sir brv gets touchscreen infotainment system on the vx model but as your looking for a automatic that is v trim and the good thing the Honda has done is that you can opt for caska touchscreen infotainment straight from the dealership for about 35 thousand on any trim level i have brv v trim and bought the infotainment system for 30 thousand from the showroom along with plenty of accessories Honda offers for the car, and the safety ratings for the ncap is 4 stars. If you want to ask any further inquiry you can reach to me on my Instagram imohi01.

Q. Which car I should go for and why, Maruti Ertiga or Honda BRV?
  • That's a tough one but as i have driven both cars and own one i think o might help you differentiate between this two and hopefully give you some basis to make your decisionSo let's start with the obvious differenceThat is brv is an old car and new ertiga is just a few months old in the marketErtiga is cheaper than brv and basically both are mpvs but i think brv is more of an estate car than a suv/mpv so brv handles a lot better than ertiga and ride quality is pretty neutral not too stiff nor too soft so because its suspension is setup in such a way brv's high-speed stability is really good, ertiga it rides good its ride quality is more in the softer side which is comfortable in city but on highway after certain speed rear of the car feels bouncy but if the car is loaded with passengers then it won't experience that on highway, since brv is older than ertiga got lot more features than brv, whereas for brv you can opt for optional touchscreen infotainment system with apple car play and Android auto for any variant whereas high features list on ertiga is limited to top two trim levels sk you have to pay a lot to get more, ertiga is slightly more spacious than brv but brv's 3rd row seating is more usable and even 2 adults can sit there for small journeys whereas ertiga 3rd row is limited for children only, now perfomance ertiga comes with 1.5-litre petrol engine which develops about 100 hp and 132nm of Torque and diesel engine of 1.3 litre develops 88hp and 200nm of Torque, so car would struggle to keep the pace up when its filled with passengers and their luggage on other side brv comes with legendary 1.5-litre vtec engine that develops 120 hp and 145nm of Torque and this engine is riot to drive it keeps pulling towards it redline like crazy acceleration is really good for car of this size and other engine that comes with brv is 1.5-litre diesel that's not so legendary and makes about 100 hp and 200 nm of Torque its a good engine but its loud and not refined. Well basically ertiga lies in the lower category to brv which will cost you about 13 lacs on road for top trim and brvs top trim will costs you about 15 lacs on road. In short ertiga is no more a cheap alternative to Toyota innova its now more capable more good looking and packed with decent features, whereas brv mpv that drives like a Sedan accelerates and handles as good as a Sedan and yes can sit 7 passengers for long trips without tiring any of with its easy drive ability. I would suggest if you want a proper 7 seater and occasionally take it on highway then close your eyes and buy ertiga in an heart but if like cruising on highways and go on to rough roads where not many cars can go and sit 7 passengers then brv is definitely one to consider but of you need a proper Suv and seats for 7 then there are other alternatives for example Tata hexa brilliant suv brilliant off roader, or xuv500 decent Suv with decent off roading capabilities.
  • Honda BR-V is a hands-on winner when you compare it with Ertiga. There are several factors that distinguish and keep it over the edge. The ride handling, comfort, fuel efficiency, ground clearance and of course space is unparalleled in this segment in BR-V. The third row of BR-V is fully usable for two adults or three children whereas Ertiga is crammed. Luggage space with all seat rows open in BR-V still let's you keep two cabin baggage with another couple of bags along.
  • Honda BRV anytime as it is car like in use ingress and egress and in matter of ground clearance it is as good as SUV 210mm further it has more of luggage space and third row space than Ertiga and it's a HONDA
Q. Which is a better vehicle amongst BRV, Creta and Marazzo?
  • If your seriously rich and dont care about the money then creta is a good car because its seriously overpriced and doesn't have good highspeed stability, on the other hand both brv and marrazo are seriously good cars both are mpv but here marrazo is better because it has more space and is more comfortable but a bit more expensive than brv and brv is a good car aswell specially its 1.5-litre vtec engine is seriously good and makes the car quick from 0-100 in 10 sec while marrazo does it in 13 sec but marrazo has more features than brv, brv gets push start and keyless entry but marrazo doesn't but still marrazo has an advantage over brv in features, and of you care about vehicle dynamics then creta has so much understeer while driving around the corner and lot of bodyroll and lacks steering precision and breaks are soggy aswell, Mahindra marrazo does understeer a lot, has really huge amount of bodyroll, but highspeed stability is good better than creta and breaks are better than creta atleast on highway speed, on the other hand brv's highspeed stability is great, bodyroll is there but not as much as creta or marrazo, steering feel and precision is great as well breaks are brilliant but let's be honest we don't buy this cars to drive around the corners or go fast so my verdict would be if you need fancy and featuristic car, good acceleration and don't mind spending nearly 18.3 lacs on a car that cant seat more than 5 passengers then go for creta but if you like driving and good acceleration, good handling and have to seat more than 6 passengers then brv is a great car do it but you don't mind handling and vehicle dynamics etc then marrazo is a serious car in my opinion if you're a family guy who needs a 7 seater and your budget is 17-18 lacs then go for marrazo, but if your budget is between 12-15 then go for brv wont be disappointed.I hope this helps
  • Have extensively driven the petrol automatic BRV and Crete extensively, and can firmly say utvis the BRV which is better, only that you need to spend 1 lac more for better in car infotainment unit, Stanley seats, DLR etc.Sorry the Marazzo does not even come close to these established giants in terms of smoothness nor ride comfort. Cannot even compare, its only the ultra price consious Indian consumer who will consider the Marazzo.

Q. Which is better Ertiga or BRV?
  • I terms of features and price new Suzuki ertiga is a brilliant people carrier but if you want practicality, perfomance handling and decent amount of features than brv is certainly one of the best. And that 1.5 vtec engine won't disappoint you either its fun and capable of doing 0-100 kmh in 10.12 which is Honda crv diesel numbers and creta diesel numbers which are both expensive and not that practical as brv but if you don't care about performance and handling then brv would be wast of money for you I would suggest ertiga is all round better and more spacious than brv but not as punchy or exciting to drive as Honda brv. Mahindra marrazo is also an option
  • In my opinion it would be BRV. It has a great finish, better build, better automatic transmission. Also the 2nd row seats can be adjusted to create more space for the third row. It was the only car of the lot where my 6'3" son could sit comfortably in 3rd row.
  • Ertiga..brv may have more horses by technical manipulations but ertiga is balanced..Honda us still in a confusion where to be with brv!

Q. I am planning to buy a 7 zeater car for long term, atleast 7 to 8 years. Can you please suggest a better choice between Honda BRV and Maruti Ertiga considering the following points:-1. Best automatic between the two.2. Better fuel efficiency 3. Better features like rear parking camera, touch screen, better seats in all rows. 4. Long term reliability and resale value. 5. Low maintenance. 6. Service cost.7. Better handling if 85% usage is in city and 15% on highways. 8. Best suited for bumper to bumper traffic driving.
  • Well i would suggest new ertiga with 1.5 litre diesel but i have seen some requirements of yours that iy should have better handling, good automatic gearbox and for occasional highways usage so well brv 1.5-litre petrol with cvt gearbox is great handler for an Suv rides beautifully, mileage os decent of petrol engine that powerfull 16kml ive got more in manual but yeah and cvt gearbox gets steering paddle shifter so that's an added bonus but still overall ertiga is pretty good offering from Suzuki and between this two ertiga makes more sense because its cheaper and has more features
  • In view of the ten year permit for Diesel personal cars already in force in Delhi, and the same rule likely to get adopted in other major metros also, i feel Petrol variant is better choice.
  • If it is automatic and you are looking at reliability then go for BRV

    I am using honda top end model for.about 6 months its pretty good in performance and comfortness. Mileage is also not tht less as compared to other cars now adays in the market. Mileage on highways is 16 as tested by ARAI and in city 11 to 12. Mixed route traffic mileage i hav touched 13 mileage. CVT engines most reliable and good for engine performance. I dpnt hav any complaints as far as honda vehicle brv is concerned.one shud go fr brv if 7 seater is reqd. Does not look heavy as other 7 seaters look but ample of luggage space is also avalable

    Have owned many sedans, the BRV is a MPV, but the engine experience, the smoothness, the maneuverability s almost like a Civic or City sedan. Its been 4 years owning and driving more than 100,000 kms. Thoroughly satisfied. Although, must state that I had to spend almost a 1.5 lakh extra in beefing up the console with a Blsupunct, hsnds free, DLRs, Stanley leather seats and leather steering wheel , better headlights, Michelin tyres etc.I shall rate it overall better than the Hyundai Greta, which I also own.

    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

  • 4.7

    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.
