Design and specicication

Front and rear bumpers, roof rails and 16-inch wheels are standout features of the BR-V, says Honda SA, while the front grille brings the SUV in-line with other Honda offerings.

Inside, the BR-V can seat seven occupants and forward-tumbling seats allow for access to the third-row of seats.

The entry-level Trend derivative offers air-conditioning, front and rear electric windows and remote keyless entry. A four-speaker audio system with USB and Bluetooth connectivity is also standard.

The new BR-V is available in four colours: White Orchid, Urban Titanium, Alabaster Silver and Carnelian Red.

Familiar 1.5-litre engine

All derivatives of the BR-V are powered by the same 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine that produces 88kW/145Nm.

BR-V buyers get to choose between a six-speed manual gearbox and Honda’s continuously variable transmission (CVT). In the case of the latter, paddle shifts are provided for manual shifting. - Wheels24.
