Honda Cars India has released a TVC to promote the newly launched BR-V 7-seat crossover. The video highlights the vehicle’s handling characteristics, mild off-roading credentials, and flexible storage solutions.
The BR-V is priced in the same ballpark as the highly successful Hyundai Creta (at least the lower variants) and packs a lot of goodies to justify its premium pricing. Items like projector headlamps, dual airbags, ABS with EBD (diesel variants), touch sensitive AC controls, etc, are standard across the lineup.
Based on the Mobilio platform, the BR-V features bolder design and crossover ensembles like black lower body cladding, roof rails and silver skid plates at both ends. The dashboard derives its design inspiration from the City.
Powering the BR-V are the 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol and i-DTEC diesel engines. The petrol motor is good for 119 PS and 145 Nm of torque while the oil burner is capable of 100 PS and 200 Nm of torque. Standard transmission is a 6-speed manual unit but the petrol engine can also be specified with a stepped CVT with paddle shifts.
