At the GAIKINDO Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS) 2015, Japanese car maker Honda has unveiled the new BR-V SUV. The BR-V will be first launched in Indonesia, and then will reach the Indian shores sometime next year. The new Honda BR-V seats seven and will lock horns with the Renault Duster, Ford Ecosport and the recently launched Hyundai Creta.
At the front, the BR-V sports a squarish profile with a chrome-laden grille and headlamps that are equipped with projector beams and chrome inserts. The front bumper sports a wide air dam and two chrome-ringed fog lamps. A matte silver faux skid plate can also seen at the lower end of the bumper.
In the side profile, we can see the BR-V benefits from high ground clearance and is rides on 16-inch alloy wheels. The BR-V also gets roof-rails and additional body cladding on the doors, to complete the SUV look.
Powering the Honda BR-V for Indonesia will be a 1.5 litre petrol mill churning out 120 bhp which can be had with either a six-speed manual or a CVT gearbox. Dual front airbags, ABS and EBD along with the Vehicle Stability Assist system complete the safety list on the BR-V. Expect Honda to showcase the BR-V at the Auto Expo 2016 in Delhi next year.
