September 21, 2016-  The Honda BR-V small SUV has received a price hike. The Honda BR-V will now cost up to Rs. 14,000 more. While its base petrol model now costs Rs 8.88 lakh, the base Diesel is priced at Rs 9.99 lakh. The top-end petrol and Diesel models are priced at Rs 12.13 lakh and Rs 13.04 lakh respectively. The Honda BR-V has so far failed to make a huge impact on the sales of Hyundai Creta. However, the BR-V is many folds more successful than its donor vehicle- the Mobilio. This ‘Bold Runabout Vehicle’ (BRV) from Honda Cars India also rivals the Maruti S-Cross, Renault Duster and the Hyundai Creta. You can book a BR-V for an amount of INR 21,000. Read on for Honda BRV India Prices, Specifications, Features and details.honda BRV official launch image

The BRV made its India debut at the Auto Expo 2016. It maybe noted that Honda was initially expected to bring the HR-V small SUV to India. However, these plans were dropped in favour of BR-V, which is based on the Brio hatchback. The Honda BRV made a debut in its concept form at the Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show 2015 (GIIAS 2015). Soon thereafter, this Honda Brio-based compact SUV was showcased at the Auto Expo and the Honda BRV India Launch took place at an official event in New Delhi on May-5, 2016. You can contact your nearest Honda Cars India dealer for details on the test drive. The new Honda BRV went on sale in a price range of INR 8.75 lakh – INR 12.90 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi).

Honda BRV India- Rivals

Compared to its rivals, the Renault Duster and the Hyundai Creta, the BRV, even after the price hike, is slightly cheaper. However, it misses out on some features, too. In India, the Honda BR-V is on sale with two engines- 1.5-litre iVTEC Petrol and 1.5-litre iDTEC Diesel. Both the engines come mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. Additionally, the Petrol engine also gets a CVT automatic with paddle shifters. The Honda BRV Diesel offers a best-in-class mileage of 21.9kmpl (ARAI). Mileage of Honda BR-V Petrol is 15.4 kmpl (MT) and 16 kmpl (AT). The BR-V gets features like automatic climate control, push button start, Bluetooth, 16-inch alloy wheels and LED light guides. The Honda BRV comes with a best-in-class ground clearance of 210 mm. It has a maximum boot space of 691-litres.

Honda BRV Review

Exterior

The design of the Honda Brio compact SUV is based on the carmaker’s ‘XCITING H DESIGN!!!’ philosophy. Basically, all this means is that the BRV boasts of a bold design that features ample usage of chrome and some interesting surface treatments. The car gets projector headlamps, a suitably high ground clearance, side body cladding and silver roof rails. Worth a mention here is that the rear-end looks strikingly similar to the China-spec HR-V. While the BR-V looks attractive from the front, the side and the rear is a bit too van-like and is reminiscent of the Mobilio.

Interior Review

Unlike the Amaze and the Mobilio, the BRV doesn’t get the Brio’s dashboard. Instead, it features a more stylish Jazz-like unit. While the steering wheel does come from the Mobilio, the BRV gets a new instrument panel and City-like aircon vents. Its dashboard design is identical to the Amaze facelift‘s and will also be seen in the upcoming Brio facelift.  The design of the Honda Brio compact SUV has taken many hints from the Honda XS-1 vision concept pictured below. Also, the upcoming compact SUV closely resembles the Mobilio MPV, especially when viewed from certain angles and has proportions which are a mix of MPV and SUV.

  1. it will be too late and big mistake , if Honda launch the compact SUV in 2016….. Honda is already too late ….almost market is captured by other SUV makers…rest market also being capture by other car makers… i am waiting since 2 years everyday i opens the net and call Honda dealer to know the launching date.. almost become mental sick about Honda compact SUV /Vezel Honda should launch compact SUV immediately…. to have hold on market

  2. Honda should launch the compact SUV immediately as they are already late entrant. As a Honda city user for the past 7 years I feel Honda has compromised on the quality of interior in Mobilio and Amaze. India Market is highly price driven, sub 4 meter or not doesn’t make difference if the cost is well under control. Mobilio is priced aptly however I didnt get the feel of Honda driving pleasure. Hopefully the BRV should be priced competitively without compromising on the quality. Honda is a drivers car, but Amaze and mobilio doesn’t deliver on the expectation. With Mahindra TUV 300 offering all comforts within 10 Lacs that too AMT the market for compact SUV is getting highly a price war. Honda should price it aggressively. Hoping for the best. If I get dis appointments after the launch will go for TUV300 !!! Hope Honda team is listening

  3. The BRV looks more like the Mobillio except the headlamps..Disappointing..The looks should have been more sportier like the HR-V..
    Indeed disappointed..Personally feel this model will not be able to compete will already established models such as Ecosport, Creta, Terrano, Duster..
    Probably Honda needs to re-think regarding this model for Indian market..

  4. v hv been knowing honda for its luxury & reliability & outstanding design….to match & keep to customers hopes…Honda Vezel/HRV is the best compact SUV honda can bring to India…Indian buyer r concerned with more on quality & reliability of Honda cars..they don’t mind if honda cars or suvs r priced above its rivals…I too am waiting/expecting Honda Vezel/HRV to establish its position in suv/crossover sections. BRV is not bad car..but not at par with customer expectations as it lacks that superb touch & sense of ownership that we can see in Vezel/HRV….My recomdation of Honda HRV…..i am sure to buy it if launches in India….Good Luck Honda

  5. If Honda has dropped the plan of launching HR-V in IndiaThen this is going to be a big mistake of the company and a great loss of company as well as customers. HONDA is been recognised by its class but with this step they are certainly lossing their own ethics. BR-V JUST seems to be a market competition oriented step. I am really disappointed.

  6. Following are my observations:

    > Looks are not aggressive from Front and side. Should have been like the Vezel.
    > The engine power should have been 1.8L to ferry 7 passengers.

    Please note Indian customers are also smart now as they are specific on their expectations.(with increased buying capacity)

    BRV = Jazz(interior) + mobilio (exterior, engine)

  7. this is the ultimte SUV it will be a tough competition for xuv 500 by the launch of this car.i really appericiate the work done on this car.but yes the company is late to launch this great SUV.

  8. Hai ,
    I am an existing Honda City AT owner from the past 4 years and I love my car a lot . I have only disappointment in my car is very low ground clearance and it’s a very big difficulty on Indian roads .
    That is the reason I want to have my next SUV from Honda with an additional ground clearance. In the new Honda BR- V with 16 inch wheels and 201mm ground clearance, I feel it will be comfortable for me .

    Kindly let me know when actually it’s going to be released in Chennai city .

    Regards,

    K Ramesh Reddy

  9. Good one.. Am willing to get the used cars in Chennai for practising driving purpose.Can any one suggest me the best choice?

  10. its feel good that afteall Honda is ready to launch but it should be automatic transmission with diesel fuel..than it will be grand success..

  11. I was expecting more on design and price..but not worth to take…for that much price we can either go for SUV500 or Hyundai

  12. As per unconfirmed news, Honda BR-V top end diesel model will be available @ 13.5 on road price. This is going to kill all competition. Creta, Duster and Eco-sport can pack their bags.

  13. This time Honda is very late they should work on automatic transmission in diesel…for new generation…

  14. Seems like a good 7 Seater option, for a good looking SUVish look, and at very about 4-5 lkh cheaper than XUV, Innova. Also, XUV/Innova are too bulky for daily city use, BRV seems to fit the bill at an affordability. Though I think, Duster and Creta are more good aggressive in macho styling than BRV, however, I see 7 seater option at this price a BIG plus for typical Indian family with 5 adults and 2 kids, compare to Duster,Creta. Also, it seems like even with 3rd row up, one can put about 2 suitcases in standing position in the boot, which is very ideal for long weekend family outing ! Lacking the reverse parking camera is something can be easily done, so I don’t see that as negative. Also, if I want Touch Infotainment system, it’s can be replaced, so I guess, all in all the drawbacks has easy workaround, at slightly extra cost, of course ! Diesel variant is ARAI certified 22 KMPL mileage, even if it gives about 17-18 in city, it will cetainly be a big Plus for BRV.Honda have seem to have struck a fantastic balance in features and styling for a 7-seater, at right price and with style !

  15. I think this time Honda can pull it off ……the company needs to play aggressively and address customer demands in every segment……very necessary things these days….sat nav..reverse parking sensors/camera…come on Honda india, these feature are available in cars priced half that of brv….at least offer them as vx(o)

  16. To my mind…honda has played cards well here…honda brv is a nice and complete package…suv looks..7 seater configeration .decent fuel average..aggressive price..brand reliability…all things coming with brv…and considering very high pricing of innova crysta…brv is a compelling buy..

  17. plz give details abt d price of basic modal n top end model in karnataka…n also abt d ground clearance…

  18. Hi Car lovers,

    I test drive the BR-V diesel 10 Km yesterday in the city.

    Really it is fantastic SUV. Looks is very nice, interior quality is good, very good ground clearance.

    Must improve pick up in the city drives it is low pick up in city drives.
    Must change Gear rod. This is very sleek, no comfort to gear rod to this SUV, very better Maruti Suzuki & Mahindra car gear rods. I advise to honda team please check to above car gear shifting very smooth.

  19. I am disappointed with BRV. It has less features than a generation old cars. Lack of parking sensors and audio video unit is shocking for a car more than Rs 12 lacs. The interior are the same/similar to amaze,brio and city. Why should I pay more for the same interior. Build quality is not even close to hyundai creta. Indian customer can’t be fooled by giving a sub standard car which is a low on features and is basically a Juggad of other Honda parts. You can see the difference in response to BRV ( 5000 booking ) compared to Innova or creta or Brezza.

  20. Hats off to the Honda Market Strategists, bro why you launched new car BR-V when it should be named Mobilio facelift..is it that difficult to understand that current Compact SUV Indian market is in hot demand for 5 seater SUV like Duster, Brezza and Creta.

    Bhaioo…Launch Honda Vezel instead and see the humongous response you get from Indian compact SUV consumers..this is the only area you didn’t touched so far lets give some competition to Renault Duster and Hyundai creta…Launch it yaar…who need BR-V when mobilion is there…both look same!!!

  21. ON the one hand Honda says that it has received 10000 bookings for BRV, a statement made almost a month back from this date. But, their overall sales in April-567, May-2344 , and June-3064 put together also doesnt come anywhere close to 10,000 units being booked. So whats happening? Are people cancelling the bookings or Honda was creating a hype for the BRV by exaggerating booking numbers of BRV?

  22. This is because booking can’t be counted as a ‘sale’ unless full money has been paid. So it’s like if I book a BR-V, it is not considered a sale until a car is officially sold to me.

    Regards

  23. is navigation system with sound system av in brv,if not can we get replaced in the mkt? If yes which are the best suitable?
