Pros : Spacious, Best automatic drive, sporty and speedy, ergonomics, zero engine noise, best rear ac vent, middle row seat recycling, suv and sedan combination, smooth steering wheel, good shockers, comfortable seat angle

Cons : No usb port for middle or rear row, absence of 17 inch wheel, no rain sensor wiper, no heat resistant windshield for lower variants, rear parking sensor and rear guard cannot go together

After one month of drive and exploring all features, I found BRV as a better car than Creta and XUV 500. It is surprising, isn't it. So I will try to cover practicality of BRV since features details between these cars can be found everywhere online.

BRV is spacious and best family car, apart from being 7 seater it has big boot than XUV 500. During the long drive, kids fold middle seat and car become so spacious that they can sit and sleep comfortably. No other cars provide this feature, even Innova's middle row seats do not tumble fully.

Touchscreen infotainment with rear sensor comes with an additional price , but worth to get. It provides rear camera and sensors on screen, Bluetooth can also be connected to the steering wheel. GPS navigation also comes with it, and USB runs the most type of video formats which even Creta's infotainment cannot run.

Creta's rear seats angle is not comfortable during long drives, wherein BRV middle row seats can be reclined just like Innova pilot seats. This feature is not even available in XUV.

The petrol engine is smooth and noise free, CVT is very smooth and powerful. So BRV automatic is best among XUV and Creta since other two have rubber band effect.

Honda is famous for ergonomics and metal body frame, no doubt that it takes the edge over other two cars very easily.

Honda connect feature provides car tracking and immobilise function, which is absent in other two competitors.

Rear AC vents make knees cold due to their location, XUV rear AC vents are insides. BRV provides rear AC vents just like Innova, the best place to make middle and rear seat passengers comfortable.

Driving is hassle free and city drive is smooth, better than XUV or Creta. No doubt Honda petrol engine is better than the Creta.

XUV's engine capacity is more than Creta and BRV but still it will left behind by Creta and BRV. 

Middle row floor hump is almost nill in BRV but in other two it is recognisable, so middle seating passenger will feel more comfort in BRV.

Off road drive in BRV is good, may not be as good as in Creta but better than XUV anytime.

BRV also wins in terms of price, so among these three cars, it is best and worth. My wife also feels comfortable driving BRV than other two.

Honda after sale service can't compete with Hyundai.

To conclude, BRV is worth and best among Creta and XUV.
