Honda BR-V interiors and other specifications revealed
All of us are now aware that Honda showcased the BR-V prototype at the GIIAS (Indonesia Motor Show) just recently. Though it is just a prototype, the production version is expected to look very similar to this model save for a few deletions on the visual front. But is Honda too late to launch the BR-V in the market? Let’s take a look at what it will offer and find out the answer to this interesting question.
At first look, the SUV is very well designed. The front end features a somewhat familiar front fascia, reminding us a bit of the CR-V. However, the bumper is very sporty and a big chrome slat tastefully integrates with the sharp headlights. The rear profile is very different from the current crop of vehicles that are based on the Brio platform. The two-step tailgate nicely divides the back-end into two halves. On the other hand, the side profile resembles an MPV with the creases being designed keeping the Mobilio in mind.
The vehicle is 4455 mm long, 1735 mm wide, 1650 mm tall and has a wheelbase of 2660 mm. It has a ground clearance of more than 200 mm. The BR-V is expected to be offered in six colour options – White, Silver, Grey, Black, Pearl Green and Pearl Red.
Talking about the dashboard design, inspiration for the same has fortunately been taken from the Jazz and City models. The instrument cluster is new as well which will be able to display a host of details. For the record, the BR-V will come with three-rows of seating unlike any other compact SUV in the market. On the feature front, the compact SUV prototype has projector headlights, 16-inch alloy wheels, electrically foldable side view mirrors, ABS with EBD, dual airbags, a 6.1 inch touchscreen infotainment system, easily foldable second row of seats and much more.
The BR-V will be driven by the well-known 1.5-litre petrol (120 PS and 145 Nm) and 1.5-litre diesel engine (100 PS and 200 Nm). Power will be driven to the wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission for the diesel variants and a 5-speed manual and automatic gearbox for the petrol trims. The production-spec Honda BR-V for India will be launched in our country somewhere around June 2016.
