Honda Cars India, launched the new BR-V crossover in May at a starting price of INR 8.7 lakhs. Aimed at the likes of Hyundai Creta and Renault Duster, Honda aims to capture a good enough share in the segment with their new BR-V.
In the first 20-25 days, Honda has managed to sell 2,344 units of BR-V and record over 9,000 bookings. Though this is substantially less than the opening what Mobilio received in India, BR-V sales are expected to pick-up in the coming months, with approaching festive season. As compared to Honda BR-V, rivals Hyundai Creta received 32,000 bookings in just 22 days of launch.
Honda BR-V is offered in a choice of one petrol and one diesel engine. This is in the form of 1.5 liter iVTEC petrol generating 119 PS and 145 Nm; and a 1.5 liter iDTEC generating 100 PS and 200 Nm.
Transmission is taken care by a 6 speed MT or a CVT with paddle shifters for the petrol variant, while the diesel gets a 6 speed MT only.
