    Well, diesel engine is okay it has good amount of lag before 2000 rpm then it does smootens up I don't know if you would prefer that in the city conditions diesel is okay on highway way for, but petrol brv is phenomenal it handles good it has really impressive acceleration and stability is good too petrol manual is a good option for fun to drive drivers, but if you just need for city driving I would recommend buy a cvt petrol brv add a touchscreen optional from the Honda dealership itself it is really smooth responsive and on highway to extract a little more you do have paddle shifters so automatic brv if your 60% on the city roads will be convenient and the mileage is good too I have done 17.7 kml on highway in my petrol manual so petrol automatic will definitely be better in terms of mileage I don't think you would appreciate the diesel engine I might also think you might regret the diesel engine so please test drive all the three options before buying and if not brv then you do have creta and nexon as well in terms of features they are far ahead of brv but brv offers features handling acceleration stability and practicality as well

    BRV is good for highways but not for city. The suspension is a bit stiff which is very good for highway and sticks to the road. I only do highway trips on my BRV. The windnoise is also there after 80Kmph but managable with sound system. Maintainance is depending upon use. I have clocked 55K kms in two years with ontime service. Every 10K kms service costed me 7-9K Rs. Two times Brake pads changed (Brake pads seems poor quality from honda but the brakes are very powerful and also depends on the driving style). At 50k kms the front suspension gave up and got replaced in warranty. Also the clutchplate gone at 50k kms costed me 9K Rs. My Drive's were about 2-3k kms everymonth and roads conditions were bad on rural areas. If you drive on good roads and carefully unlike me ( I drive the car pretty fast on bad roads too). The it will do well. I will say go for it for comfort, petrol like power delivery linear and smooth and decent handling.

    I have read some one say petrol brv lacks punch on highway but that's definitely not true because either they don't know what's a vtec engine and how it drives because vtec engine has the top end and lower end the mid range is okay, the Torque comes over 4500 rpm there's where the magic of 1.5 vtec lies I I have done 140+ ssh and it keep accelerating and accelerating to certain speed it does die off but yes to get that high Torque you have to downshift a bit but that's why that vtec engine is for fun loving people not someone who loves relaxed driving for them engines like 1.6 diesel from Hyundai are good , and every reviewer said that brv petrol shines on highway because of its engine and good Highspeed stability,

    Sorry will not be able to give a proper feedback as I drive the petrol variant. But for me the car lacks in that extra punch while on highways during overtakes.

Q. I have a budget of 14 lakh and family of 2 adults with 2 kids less then 10 years age. I shortlisted BRV and Creta but then i found disadvantages of both. So now trying to move to Sedan segment. We are heavy build family of 4 ( Healthy punjabis type height and body of avg 90 kgs and 6 feet ). I am only looking for automatic and 70% city drive and 30% high way drive. BRV CVT - Not selling like hot cake - Less premium more practical, extremely spacious. Side profile looks like mobilio and a little stretched from side but 7 seater I will get every feature if i spend 15 lakhs including touch screen and parking sensors seat covers and additional accessories . Nothings special inside the car though. Creta - Loaded with features - Automatic costing 16 lakh which is high - Petrol average is less then 10 in city & high on maintenance. Honda city - Low on average around 11 -12 in city & costing around 14 lakhs for CVT. Verna - Low in average for AT costing around 13 lakh. Ciaz - I heard that low ground clearance means lower body can touch the ground on bumps during fully loaded? Good on fuel efficiency and maintenance as well as features. But AT has 4 speed transmission. As I drive around 35 km daily mostly from home to office and office to home. Also length , width and turning radius is same so nothing to do with big car and small car. My gut says BRV but people says it will get discontinued due to poor sales like mobilio and you may not get good service, parts availability or no resale value as well. Hardly 500 cars gets sold every month across India. So looking at all this now I am kind of confused that should i go for Verna / Ciaz which are most selling? Where should I put my finger on based on my requirements. Marazzo and Ertiga are discarded and also cars like S-Cross / ford ecosports / breeza / wrv / amaze may be too small for us specially second row only two+ child can fit.
