BRV

Wrapup

 Honda has upped the ante in compact SUV segment with BRV. It's a 7-seater which is a big plus point in its arsenal. Powered by efficient and well performing motors, the diesel seems to have reduced NVH as compared to earlier iterations. Looks smart, and Honda's space management shows true colors. Interiors could have been better and some more features wont be out of place though.

Quick Review

When looked upon, BRV’s silhouette does not depict any similarity to Mobilio on which it is base. And it's a good thing we believe as this car has an individual personality with presence, than its cousins. Large, sharp headlamps are completely new and not shared with Mobilio, Honda offers projector headlamps as standard across the range. Grille has loads of chrome, but lends a visual touch that Indians adore. The visual appeal of front end is further enhanced by creases in bumpers above fog lamps, giving it more masculine appearance. Large air-dam dominates lower part of front end with silver finish skid plate sprinkling SUV character. The body is reasonably high off the ground with BRV boasting of 210mm ground clearance and that amongst the segment best. A rare Honda at this price bracket where scraping the bottom isn’t a concern at all. Clamshell hood gives it a good SUV-ish stance with plastic cladding at wheel arches and side sill looking well integrated too and not an afterthought. The 16” alloy wheels are not available on base E and S variant, but steel rims without wheel covers do lend a very workmanlike appearance more on utilitarian lines. Roof rails help BRV look a bit taller than it actually is. All in all, the design cues result into BRV having good road presence. When viewed from side, it looks more like an MPV and hood looks a wee bit short for such length, but it's not an eyesore. Large rear door with unique kink in beltline dominate side and rear 3-quarter look, but BRV’s height means it's not as hard to the eyes as it is in Mobilio. Rear end can be termed a mix of MPV and SUV. Not bad looking, but rather sort of funky after front end’s contemporary, beefed up styling. The alloys have a very attractive, smart design that includes black and silver finishing. Tail lights have LED light guide and have connected look that is a slim contour of light runs across the width of car. A rather modest rear end looks sporty to the eyes thanks to the tail light design.
