Yes, Honda BR-V is a good choice, it looks attractive and premium. It is pretty spacious and very well equipped. In the first two rows there is generous legroom, headroom and good under thigh support. But the third-row seat is best for kids or occasional usage only. This MPV has a practical 223 liters of boot space which is expandable to 691 liters if you fold down the last row.

BR-V Diesel is powered by 1.5 liter turbocharged i-DTEC engine that produces ample power and torque output for both city and highway driving. Its six speed gearbox is butter smooth and a delight to use with a light clutch for relaxed stop-go driving in traffic. It doesn't feel underpowered even with a load on board. Higher ground clearance also makes it apt for our road conditions. As for the fuel economy, BRV Diesel has an ARAI fuel efficiency of 21.9 kmpl; which is decent.

BRV is well equipped to keep the buyers happy. Though base model (E-Diesel) has missed out on some features like: rear AC vents, rear parking sensors, height adjustable driver seat, electrically adjustable ORVMs, rear defogger & wiper, music system etc. On the safety front, all the diesel variants of BR-V come with 2 airbags, ABS and EBD as standard.

You want to buy BR-V diesel, but it would be more expensive than your budget as its on-road price is around 14.4 lakhs. You can consider either BRV S Diesel or base variant BRV E Diesel. The price of BRV S is around 35-40k more than your budget (13 lakhs) while the on-road price of BRV E diesel is around 12.10 lakhs.

Finally, in my opinion, BR-V is a good MPV to buy as it impresses on all fronts be it design, interiors, performance or ride and handling.
