The updated compact SUV flaunts diamond cut alloys and DRLs, which are encased in a headlamp cluster that also houses projector headlamps. A similar story continues on the inside, as the Honda BRV interiors flaunts the same touchscreen infotainment system, which one can find in the City sedan and Jazz premium hatchback. Other creature comforts in the car includes an automatic climate control, foldable third row seats (exclusive to 7-seater variants), rear AC vents, electrically controlled wing mirrors and rear parking camera, etc.
Under the hood, the premium compact SUV will incorporate a 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol powerplant, which will produce 120PS of power of output and 145Nm of peak torque. For the diesel variants, Honda is expected to bestow BR-V with a re-tweaked version of the 1.5-litre i-DTEC unit, which produces 100PS in other models of the automaker, and those include the likes of Amaze compact sedan and Jazz premium hatchback.
