Honda BR-V compact SUV would be launched by the end of May 2016 in the country, claims an ET Auto report.

It would mark the Japanese automaker's entry in the compact SUV segment, which is currently dominated by the likes of Renault Duster, Nissan Terrano, Hyundai Creta and Maruti S-Cross.

Being based on the same architecture as the Brio, Mobilio and the highly successful Amaze compact sedan, the BR-V would be introduced in both petrol and diesel fuel trims. It was developed exclusively for the Asian market by Honda R&D Asia Pacific Co. Ltd and would be manufactured locally at the company's Tapukara facility in Alwar to keep the pricing competitive. The compact SUV would carry an array of sporty elements such as full body cladding, roof-rails, and 16-inch alloy wheels. The BR-V, following Honda's 'Machine Minimum, Man Maximum' philosophy, has quite spacious interior cabin with several components borrowed from Mobilio and City.

Mechanically, Honda BR-V would be presented in both petrol and diesel guises. Both the petrol and diesel powertrains would be sourced from the City mid-sized sedan. The petrol variants would be powered by the 1.5L 4-cylinder i-VTEC engine, developing 120bhp of top power. On the other hand, the diesel variants would get the 1.5L 4-cylinder i-DTEC engine, generating 99bhp. All the engines are expected to be paired to manual transmission as standard, while an automatic gearbox could be introduced at a later stage. The BR-V, quite identical to other Honda vehicles, is expected to be high on fuel efficiency. It is believed that Honda BR-V would be priced in a bracket of Rs. 8-12 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom)
