BR-V Specs confirmed - Upcoming SUV from Honda

Snapshot: Specifications of the upcoming SUV from Honda confirmed. The BR-V is expected to be launched in India between April - May, 2016 and pitched against others in the segment. Creta and S-Cross to be the main rivals.

We got a glimpse of BRV’s prototype at the Gaikindo Indonesian International Motor Show this year. The car is India bound and would be launched between April-May this year. The active utility vehicle bears a close semblance to the Honda CRV but has been derived from Brio platform.

According to the latest updates, it has emerged that the premium SUV would be available with petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol engine would be turbocharged unit and would develop decent power and torque figures (118bhp, 145Nm). The 1.5 litre diesel motor would generate 98.6bhp of power and 200Nm of torque at a low 1750 rpm. The transmission options include 5 speed manual and a CVT automatic. It's still not confirmed if the CVT gearbox would be six-speed unit. However, the option of CVT would make BR-V the first car in the segment to offer this.

The SUV would be pitched against the segment leader EcoSport and other compact SUVs like S-Cross, TUV 300 etc. The different variants are expected to be priced between 8.5 – 14 lakh range. Creta, S-Cross and Duster are expected to be the car's main competitors. Unlike other SUVs in the segment, it has been confirmed that BR-V would offer seating capacity of seven. An impressive ground clearance of 201 mm, together with set of 16 inch wheels look promising on a car of this size. The body work, wheel arches and huge bumpers inspired from CR-V give it massive appeal and road presence. The BR-V would be manufacturered at Honda's Tapukara facility in Rajasthan and would most likely be showcased at AutoExpo 2016 before launch.
