Pros : Space, Comfort, Ride Quality

Cons : Features, Engine Noise, MPV-ish look


I am planning to buy a SUV for my family and therefore I went to Honda dealership yesterday to test-drive the BR-V. The car has enormous length was able to impress me in first look though it had to compromise on SUV character because of it. I would have liked it more if Honda had increased the height of the car and kept this length constant. Nevertheless, I got on to the driving seat to check the ride quality. I drove the petrol variant with automatic transmission so engine noise was not very loud. But at high speeds this was not the case and it was quite audible. The acceleration was linear which was a plus and even braking was quite good. I took a sharp turn numerous times but the car did not disappoint me.

Talking about features, I am completely dis-satisfied. There is no infotainment system even in the top variant of the car! I have checked Hyundai Creta also and I would say it is much better. For a car of this segment, infotainment touch screen is like a mandatory thing but Honda has not installed it. Another minus is absence of parking sensors in such a long car. You are most likely to hit an obstacle while taking reverse as it is difficult to work on estimates in such a long car. Interior quality is good and the third row of seating gave me relief as sometimes we are more than five people to go out. Legroom is large in the second row and seats are comfortable. Not sure about the shoulder room though. Honda is saying maintenance will not be very costly but I am not sure. I will check Renault Duster and Maruti S Cross also and then will take a decision. I advise you to do the same.

    Sir extra navigator cannot attached with audio system, it cannot display audio indormation, such as folder list, songs list, Think about it, if you want to enjoy fully you want to change replace audio system. If you do this you warranty void. Now reply.

    ramniwas |21 May,2016 01:06:28 PM

    Its batter to honda provide this , for some extra price which sync with audio system. Inbuilt 2din audio Dada ji ke time ki baat ho gai hai.

    The nice car

  • ramniwas |06 Jun,2016 03:00:16 PM

    Honda was making pepole fool, they said brv is safe car and have 5 star rating in ncap rating, but they saleing the car in assam and other state without propet state transport ministery clearance, thats why if any accident happen you did not get any thing

    ramniwas |06 Jun,2016 03:04:11 PM

    Because insurance coverage did not start till tax of car deposit in rto office, and due to non clearance rto office not collecting tax against Brv. So plz wait for car delivery till rto clearance .

  • abhi |08 Jun,2016 07:35:54 PM

    I booked BRV last wek...i made the decision after test driven the car.The car is decent in perfomance and it is having more interior space than ertiga which i had driven first.The problem is the lack of touch screen infotainment andrevers cam the reverse cam sensors are available for a price of 10500 ..but the problem of infotainment system still stands.

    mahesh |20 Jun,2016 01:42:15 PM

    Honda should have bought HRV instead of this BRV.....

  • Dr Rahul Mandhare |12 Jun,2016 12:53:17 PM

    Instead of all leathers provided by Honda in top model, they should think to provide touchscreen navigation system & rear parking camera to make it a perfect family car.

  • SD singh |13 Jun,2016 03:44:02 PM

    I hv bought a Honda BRV even after its same demerits regarding infontainment system n parking sensor. But extremely dissatisfied with after sales customer care from the company. U hv to keep on calling them about some mistakes n they r not able to solve.

  • shailendra |24 Jul,2016 10:31:00 AM

    The car comes with A DEFECT A GAP at the FRONT WINDSHIELD COL TOP CORNER. WHEN U COMPLAIN THE DEALER SAY ITS A COMPANY MANUFACTURING DEFECT, CALL THE COMPANY. EXTREMELY DISSATISFIED WITH MY DECISION OF BUYING THE CAR ALONGWITH A BAD CUSTOMER CARE.

    Are you sure that rear parking camera is available as genuine Honda accessory?
