Related Questions on BRV

  • 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.

    Brv is a narrow car but creta isnt as comfortable as brv because of its position of pillars so both can only seat 3 comfortably and brv has a better handling than creta better performance and even if it gets discontinued you won't have problems with the parts because they all share the same parts and brv petrol does 0-100 in 10.3 seconds and creta petrol in 11.5 and brv automatic does in 11.2 seconds creta automatic does in 12 seconds and brv does have less features but if you spend extra money you would have enough features and would still costs less than creta, I own a petrol manual brv and I have averaged 16.5 kml on highway l while averaging 100kmh while creta did 10 in city andand 12 on highway, I am 6 ft 2inc and I get plenty of headroom and legroom is like plenty of and even you need more you can recline the second row seats and move the seats backwards for more legroom and you can sleep while being driven ride is so stable even at 150+ and comfortable enough at decent speed, but if you want creta go for Verna instead better option similar engine little less Honda city is a good car but only for performance enthusiasts qualify in brv is yes bad compared to creta but more than decent to live with, i might sound like Honda salesman but this car really impressed me a lot more than creta, vreta isn't a bad car but when you compare it with brv, they both are In. Different league, have done 1800 km from hyd to ooty in just one day with 8 passengers with my cousins and still averaged 15.9 kml and never it felt underpowered even though it was loaded was averaging 120+ without any fuss. And even brv cvt gets a paddle shifters, any ways it's upto you I have had both this cars creta and brv but creta was always a small car for me because it wasn't enough spacious for me and my family and diesel engine was good but the steering and handling was so bad I never crossed 120km in creta, brv's stability inspires so much confidence to drive and take aggressive corners though I don't recommend it but the petrol engine is so much fun and cvt might dissapoint you because cvt doesn't do the justice to the 1. 5 litre vtec engine but it's the best in the segment automatic better tha than jerky AMT of creta , brv cvt is smooth and you do have paddle shifters but if Suvs are too big for you Tata nexon and ford ecosport both are best options you can't go wrong with either of them and city ciaz and Verna I would say Verna, but for more mileage and ease of service ciaz 2018 facelift hybrid is also a good option.

    The best pick among the two is Maruti Ertiga. The Ertiga nails down to the ample space, comfortable ride quality, adequate boot space, acceptable efficiency, and service support like no other. Maruti Suzuki has introduced the 1.5-litre DDiS 225 diesel engine for the Ertiga. The engine makes 95PS of power at 4,000rpm and 225Nm of peak torque between 150****500rpm. Maruti is also claiming an efficiency figure of 24.20 kmpl for the new DDiS 225 engine. The engine is also coupled to a 6-speed manual transmission. Maruti Suzuki has improved upon the suspension of the older Ertiga. It confidently tackles craters and bad roads and lets very little filter into the cabin. The suspension settles back quickly once you’re done negotiating the bad bits. It’s this characteristic that makes the Ertiga feel more composed than before on the highway. Even at slow city speeds too, there are no complaints. Moreover to clear all your doubts would request you to take the test drive for both the cars.​Click on the following link to have a detailed comparison for both the cars. https://www.zigwheels.com/compare-cars/honda-brv-vs-maruti-suzuki-ertiga

  • Q. Got a BRV cvt petrol. Mileage stuck to 9.4. Disheartening. Have driven 650 Km only. Wondering if its normal for a new BRV. How much increase in mileage can I expect after the first service. And how much after first oil change.

    Its certain mileage would increase after first service buy those 650 km were they mostly done in city then it's completely fine and honda claims 16 kml on highway and 13 to14 in the city, i own a petrol manual brv and in city i average over 12. 4 and on highway i average nearly 15.6 and sometimes on outer ring road i have averaged over 17.2 while maintaining the top speed of 130kmh for atleast 160km, that 1.5 vtev motor so brilliant that if driven smartly it would give mileage number similar to its diesel rivals, and when driven enthusiastically it will deliver you tremendously awesome acceleration

    I own a V-CVT BRV and have taken a test ride of Ertiga AMT last week. My friend was looking for one. I would point out, where Ertiga scores over BRV. 1. New ertiga offers little bit more space in 3R than BRV. 2. The dashboard looks better in Ertiga than in BRv especially with the wooden finish. 3. Ertiga top end is way cheaper than BRV, even if you compare automatics. 4. Ertiga AMT version gets FR seat AR where BRV does not. I have installed the Armrest separately from Honda itself. 5. Ertiga AMT version gets the 8inch touchscreen system where BRV does not. Now where does BRV score over Ertiga 1. 2R tumble seats. Much easier to get in and out of 3R in BRV than Ertiga. 2. 3R is also tumble seats. Just imagine the boot space when 2R is tumbled and 3R is fold flat. 3. CVT beats Marutis torque converter any given moment. The acceleration and power generation is better. 4. Honda engine is better for long term reliability compared to Suzuki's. I have also owned City before before exchanging it for BRV. 5. Driver as well as all row passenger visibility is better compared to Ertigas. Last but not the least, soon you will find Ertiga Taxis waiting next to your personal Ertiga. IMO, thats an important point. Happy driving!!

  • Q. Is there cabin noise in honda brv diesel?What is the mileage?

    Saurabh | 3 months ago

    Auto critics and a few intellectuals have rated the NVH levels of Honda BRV Diesel as higher than usual. However, as a user, I am completely okay with its cabin sound levels. The mileage on Diesel is pretty satisfactory again with city conditions at 16-18 kmpl (depends which city you drive in and on traffic conditions plus driving habits) and highways sending in 20+ kmpl. These figures are experienced by me in past three years of BRV ownership.

  • Q. Please advise how is this car, in terms of Mileage, safety, style, maintenance and road grip - BRV?
    Zigwheels
    Zigwheels | 1 year ago

    The BR-V has got the basics right. It has seven seats, rides well and has proven engines. However, that's where the good bits end. The BR-V's ride is forgiving and absorbs most of the undulations our roads will ever throw at it. It is stiffly sprung, but not up to the point where the ride becomes jarring. At low speeds, the 210mm of ground clearance and the India-friendly suspension dismiss the potholes and broken roads without a hiccup. The ride is slightly bouncy at the second and third row but is tolerable for shorter journeys. The diesel engine is amongst the most fuel-efficient engines of the lot. The ARAI-rated mileage stands at 21.9km/l. In terms of safety features, the car gets dual front airbags as standard while ABS is available in all the variants except the base trim.Other safety features that are spread across the variants include a driver seatbelt reminder, security alarm and impact sensing door unlock. Honda is really very good when it comes to maintenance and steering feel is very good and although tires offer average road grip, the car is capable to hold on its own.

    Does 10-12kml in city and I have done 16.7 on highway while averaging 100kmh for 200km, no it doesn't feel underpowered its actually quicker than Hyundai creta petrol which creta 0-100 kmh in 11.5 seconds and Honda brv does 0-100 in 9.9 seconds tested by Indonesian car review channel /magazine we can do it in 10.11 seconds which is fast for a big car and top speed of Honda brv is 195 kmh which is more than Toyota Innova, and even with car fully loaded with people it still does not feel underpowered thanks to short gearing ratios of 1st and 2nd gear which pull the car without any fuzz have done averaged 120 + on highway without any stability issues etc.

  • Q. Can two persons sit in the third row conveniently? what is the mileage for petrol brv car?
    Zigwheels
    Zigwheels | 1 year ago

    The claimed ARAI mileage: Honda BR-V Diesel is 21.9 kmpl | Honda BR-V Petrol is 15.4 kmpl. The claimed ARAI mileage for the automatic variant: Honda BR-V Petrol is 16.0 kmpl. Rest it depends on one's driving style/habits. In the third row, headroom is surprisingly good, but this still isn’t a seat of choice to begin with. Passengers here will tend to sit with their knees pointing upwards and under-thigh support is not commendable by any means. It’s best suited for kids, or perhaps adults on short journeys.

    If you are planning to buy the car soon, then you can go for the BSIV variant as the existing BSIV cars will continue after the BSVI norms are applied. Else, you can wait for the BSVI version. There is not official update from the brand's end regarding the launch of the BSVI variant.
