Honda BR-V, BR-V Modulo in attendance at 2016 Indonesia Auto Show (GIIAS)
Honda has several models on display at the ongoing 2016 Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS). The green BR-V Prestige and white BR-V Modulo are certainly the highlights.
The dark lustrous green color option is not available in India but it is the BR-V’s communication color in Thailand and Indonesia. The unique paint job makes the BR-V stand out from the rest and enhances its road presence significantly.The Modulo gets special alloy wheels and decals on lower part of the doors.
While the BR-V itself is a cosmetically upgraded Mobilio, the BR-V Modulo opts for further enhancements. The BR-V Modulo is fitted with a new chin with narrower silver skid plate compared to the regular variant.
Other noteworthy highlights of the Modulo variant include chrome accents on the ORVM housings, side foot board, “Modulo” decals on the lower part of the doors, chrome door handle, and Modulo door sills. Interior has nothing much to report on.The BR-V rivals like likes of Renault Duster in Indonesia.
The BR-V Modulo is based on the top-end trim and features chrome finished fog light bezels, alloy wheels, touchscreen infotainment system, automatic climate control with rear AC vents, multifunction steering wheel, dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, Hill Start Assist, Vehicle Stability Assist, etc.
The Mobilio is powered by the 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine which develops 120 PS and 145 Nm of torque. Transmission options include a 6-MT and a CVT with paddle shifters.
