Honda BR-V (92)

The newly launched Honda BR-V has witnessed a good response from the market with over 10,000 bookings registered since its launch last month (5th May 2016). The BR-V, which stands for Bold Runabout Vehicle is Honda’s first crack at the India’s burgeoning compact SUV segment, which has witnessed growth by over 40 per cent last year. Based on the Brio/Amaze/Mobilio’s platform, the BR-V is available in both diesel and petrol variants, but only in front-wheel-drive configuration.

Petrol power for the BR-V comes from the same 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine shared with the City, and is rated at 117 bhp and 145 Nm of torque. The petrol engine is matched to a newly developed 6-speed manual transmission, and is rated at an ARAI certified 16 km/l. The same engine can also be had with a CVT option. The diesel engine is the usual 1.5-litre i-DTEC motor found in the Amaze, Jazz and the Mobilio; good for 98.6 bhp and 200 Nm of torque, and strapped to a 5-speed manual transmission.
