Honda BR-V 2018

Overview

Meet the Honda BR-V, the Japanese carmaker's second entry into the hot crossover B-segment. First introduced in the Philippine market in 2016, the BR-V or Bold Runabout Vehicle sets itself apart from other sub-compact CUVs by having a three row seating configuration. Honda was able to do this by using its popular seven-seater Mobilio subcompact MPV as a starting point. This combines the best of both worlds, a versatile people mover and a high-ridding SUV with a command view driving position.

There’s no mistaking that the BR-V is a Honda, its exterior shares a lot of SUV styling cues with the CR-V. Up front it gets a squarish face with a bold chrome grille flanked by angular projector type headlights. It has a hexagonal honeycomb lower grille with matching foglight housings on either side. It has matte black cladding which wraps around the lower section of the vehicle and up around the front and rear wheel arches, this gives the BR-V a rugged look. Like its Mobilio sibling, it has a prominent rising character lines and a unique beltline with a slight dip that allow rear passengers to have large low windows. The rear is pure Honda SUV with its high-mounted LED taillights and a low license plate recess. Large sliver finish roof rails complete its adventurous image.

Inside, the Honda BR-V features a very modern car-like dashboard. Its instrument cluster houses a speedometer, a tachometer, and a multi-info screen with an integrated temp gauge and fuel gauge. All variants get a large seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system; the top trim comes with Navigation. It has nicely integrated push-button AC control panel with a digital display, the range-topper gets auto climate control. For added comfort, rear air conditioning with independent controls come as standard. Its generous 2,662 mm wheelbase allows adequate room for all seven passengers. Being a family vehicle, it is peppered with storage pockets and drink holders. When it comes to luggage space, the BR-V has a cargo volume of 223 liters, this can be increased to 521 liters with the third row folded and tumbled forward.

The Honda BR-V employs an independent MacPherson strut suspension up front and semi-independent torsion beam suspension at the rear, this setup is similar to the one of the Mobilio but on the BR-V it’s raised to give it an impressive 201 mm ground clearance, one of the highest in its segment. Steering is by rack and pinion with electric power assist. All variants come standard with 16-inch alloy wheels shod with 195/60R16 tires.

Underneath the BR-V’s hood is Honda's familiar 1.5-liter i-VTEC inline-4 gasoline mill which puts out 118 hp @ 6,600 rpm and 145 Nm of torque @ 4,600 rpm. Power is sent to the front wheels through a continuously variable transmission with Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology. The range-topping variant gets paddle shifters for a sportier driving experience.

For safety, all Honda BR-V variants have standard dual-airbags, ABS, electronic stability control, and hill start assist. It’s also equipped with ISOFIX child seat anchors.
