India-bound Honda BR-V


The compact SUV space in India has witnessed some serious action over the last couple of years. The Renault Lodgy, Maruti Suzuki S-Cross and the Hyundai Creta have been fighting it out in the ring and the Creta has been delivering serious blows. Honda has been sitting on the fence all the while but it has used this time to study the segment thoroughly. Enter the Honda BR-V, the company’s new compact SUV that has the Creta squarely in its sights. Our shortpreview drive revealed a strong contender in the BR-V, with one of its selling points turning out to be a third row of seats, a feature that none of the competitors possess. Honda will be banking heavily on the BR-V to break into the segment and we can’t wait to test it here in India. A comparo with the BR-V’s segment peers will follow soon. For now, take a look at what the BR-V looks like, both inside and out (The car featured in the imaged is an Indonesian spec BR-V. Expect the Indian BR-V to sport slightly altered interiors and features.)
