The all-new Honda BR-V is the Japanese automaker’s entry to the competitive Philippine compact SUV market. Although it has the characteristics of an MPV, its bold and beefy exterior suggests that it belongs to the small SUV segment. However, its major advantage against the competitors in its class is the number of occupants it can accommodate – 7 to be exact.
Aside from this, the all-new BR-V is equipped with features that are not only convenient to the driver, but also to its passengers. These are smart entry with push start system, automatic air conditioning, rear air conditioning with independent controls, Vehicle Stability Assist, Hill Start Assist, and a 7-inch touch screen display audio with navigation (powered by Garmin) for the Navi variant.
Under the hood of the all-new BR-V lies a 1.5L EURO 4 Certified i-VTEC engine mated to Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). It can churn out a maximum of 120 hp and 145 Nm of torque. Available in Premium Amber Metallic, White Orchid Pearl, Modern Steel Metallic, Lunar Silver Metallic, Crystal Black Pearl, and Taffeta White.
