Engine And Gearbox Specifications
The BR-V borrows the 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines from the Mobilio MPV both of which are mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. The petrol engine is also available with a 6-speed CVT automatic gearbox.
The petrol engine produces 117bhp and 140Nm of torque and returns a mileage of 15.4km/l with the manual gearbox and 16km/l with the CVT geabox. The diesel engine produces 98bhp and 200Nm of torque and gives a mileage of 21.9km/l.
Design wise the the BR-V will remind buyers of Honda's larger SUV, the CR-V especially at the front end with its squared off looks. Sleek headlamps flank a twin-slat chrome grille that sits above a large air dam.
The rear end of the new Honda SUV sees angular LED taillamps and a chrome strip on the rear. The BR-V features plastic cladding that runs around the SUV and gives it a more rugged look.
Enhancing the SUV look are the roof rails and the faux skid plates at both the front and rear ends of the new compact Honda SUV.
The interiors of the car features a premium look. This seen in the centre console finished off in piano black. The dash features both the infotainment system and the the controls for the air conditioning systems.
Also featured are steering mounted controls for the infotainment system and an engine start/stop button. But what sets it apart from the rest of the competition is the presence of paddle shifter for the automatic variant of the petrol BR-V.
Bookings for the new Honda BR-V have already started and the new SUV is now available across all of Honda's showrooms across India.
