Image gallery: India-bound Honda BR-V

29 Oct 2015 / 1

The compact SUV space in India has witnessed some serious action over the last couple of years. The Renault Lodgy, Maruti Suzuki S-Cross and the Hyundai Creta have been fighting it out in the ring and the Creta has been delivering serious blows. Honda has been sitting on the fence all the while but it has used this time to study the segment thoroughly. Enter the Honda BR-V, the company’s new compact SUV that has the Creta squarely in its sights. Our short preview drive revealed a strong contender in the BR-V, with one of its selling points turning out to be a third row of seats, a feature that none of the competitors possess. Honda will be banking heavily on the BR-V to break into the segment and we can’t wait to test it here in India. A comparo with the BR-V’s segment peers will follow soon. For now, take a look at what the BR-V looks like, both inside and out (The car featured in the imaged is an Indonesian spec BR-V. Expect the Indian BR-V to sport slightly altered interiors and features.)

Honda BR-V (1)

The Honda BR-V is based on the Brio/Amaze/ Mobilio platform

 

Honda BR-V (2)

The plastic cladding on the wheel arches is similar to the Renault Duster Adventure edition

 

Honda BR-V (3)

Prominent crease on the front door and a Mobilio inspired kink on the rear window sill. The wheel arches add to the SUV appeal

 

Honda BR-V (4)

The rear has a neat design. It looks narrow, like the Honda Mobilio. Number plate hangs low like the Hyundai Creta

 

Honda BR-V (2)

The interiors are a mix of the City, Brio and Amaze. The Indian BR-V could get a beige theme inside. Note the steering wheel borrowed from the Amaze

 

Honda BR-V (4)

Honda may offer a touchscreen infotainment unit in the Indian spec BR-V

 

Honda BR-V (5)

Instrument cluster is similar to the unit in the Honda City

 

Honda BR-V (1)

Third row of seats have 50:50 split folding feature. Space is useable too

 

Honda BR-V (6)

Thin backrests on the front seats have been incorporated to liberate rear knee room

 

Honda BR-V (1)

Alloy wheels look like an evolved version of the ones on the Mobilio RS. India could get a different alloy wheel design

 

Honda BR-V (3)

Bold BR-V badging stands out at the rear. Note the reflective strip that gels well with the tail lamp

 

Honda BR-V (4)

Projector headlamps could be offered as standard in the BR-V

 

Honda BR-V (5)

Middle row features 60:40 split. The middle row space is not as much as the City or Mobilio
