Unveiled as a prototype at the 2015 Indonesia International Motor Show earlier this year, the new Honda BR-V has been launched with price starting from IDR 226.5 million (or INR 10.93 lakh). A total of four variants are on offer, all powered by the same 1.5 liter iVTEC four cylinder motor generating 120 PS power and 145 Nm torque. The motor is mated to either a six speed MT or CVT.
Bookings for the new Honda BR-V opened at the Indonesian Motor Show, where it was unveiled in August this year. Until the end of November, the company has received over 4,000 orders, creating a new record of sorts.
