Honda BR-V Prices Increase by Up to Rs 14,000!

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.
