Honda BR-V May 5 launch


The Honda BR-V is possibly one of the most awaited Honda cars in the last few years and according to us will be the most popular Honda in India after the ever-popular City. The Honda BR-V will be launched in India on May 5 and is expected to be priced about Rs 8-11 lakh for the petrol powered variants and about 9-12 lakh for the diesel powered car. Expect the Honda BR-V to go up against the likes of the Renault Duster, Nissan Terrano, Mahindra Scorpio, Tata Safari and the extremely popular Hyundai Creta.


In terms of design, the BR-V has a lot of commonalities with other Honda cars. The front looks very similar to the likes of the City and the Jazz but is a little more pronounced and chunkier with a larger grille. At the rear, the BR-V gets a large tail lamp setup that stretches all the way across the tail gate and is very unique in terms of overall design. There is a lot of chrome garnish sprinkled around the car with a large piece dominating the tailgate and across the bottom of the doors. That said, the side profile does look a lot like the Mobilio but in overall design and size terms, the BR-V does look and feel a lot bigger.


The Honda BR-V’s interior is also inspired heavily from the Jazz and the City. In India, the BRV will get beige interiors with a leather interior option on the top of the line variant with the other standard and lower variants will get a beige cloth interior. The BR-V’s main appeal will however be the fact that it is a seven seater and not a five seater SUV will most other compact SUVs in its price range. The middle row and last rows are both quite spacious both in terms of legroom and headroom.


In terms of engines, the BRV will come with both petrol and diesel engines along with both manual and automatic gearboxes too. The petrol will be a 1.5-litre engine, which will make 120PS of peak power along with a 5-speed manual or a CVT gearbox. The diesel will get a 1.5-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and will make 100PS of peak power mated to a six speed manual gearbox. The Honda BR-V will be available only in front wheel drive as of now with the possibility of an all-wheel-drive variant in the future.
