Front and rear bumper garnishes, roof rails and 16-inch wheels are key visual elements, while the striking front grille, with its bold, chrome-embellished cross-bar, prominent Honda logo and streamlined headlights, endow the BR-V with a distinctive personality that is unmistakably Honda.
Inside, the cabin's roomy dimensions allow a third seating row, boosting the BR-V's occupant seating capacity to seven. The fold and tumble convenience of the middle and rear seating rows provides exceptional versatility, allowing BR-V owners to configure the vehicle in different ways, depending on the seating capacity and luggage space required. Even the entry-level Trend derivative offers air-conditioning, front and rear electric windows and remote keyless entry. A four-speaker audio system with USB connectivity and Bluetooth.
Active and passive safety is also addressed via ABS anti-lock brakes and dual front airbags.
All derivatives of the new Honda BR-V are powered by the same, efficient 1,5-litre four-cylinder engine. The SOHC unit uses Honda's i-VTEC variable valve technology to produce 88 kW of maximum power at 6 600 r/min, together with a torque peak of 145 Nm at
4 600 r/min.
There's a choice between a six-speed manual gearbox or Honda's refined Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), with paddle shifts for manual shifting between the CVT's virtual ratios.
The price includes the standard Honda five-year/200 000 km warranty and three years of AA Roadside Assistance. Comfort and Elegance models benefit from a two-year/30 000 km service plan. Services are at 15 000 km intervals.
