During the 8th Philippine International Motor Show (PIMS), Honda Cars Philippines Inc (HCPI) held a preview of the all-new BR-V. While the vehicle was not officially launched during the biennial motorshow, it did give interested showgoers a quick look (and feel) of the new-generation 7-seater crossover.

Aside from having a sleek new look, the BR-V now comes with more high-tech features, a more practical and spacious cabin, and for the first time – Honda Sensing. Since the vehicle has plenty going on for it, it's no wonder customers showed immediate interest in the next-generation BR-V.

Fast forward to October, the automaker has announced that authorized dealerships in the country are now accepting reservations for the all-new BR-V. Not only that, but the next-generation 7-seater is also on its way to your nearest dealerships in order to give interested customers a better look.

Official prices and specifications are not yet available at this time. However, based on our previous report, there will reportedly be 4 variants in total. It means there could be a single manual model along with three CVT versions. We also learned that it will be powered by a 1498cc engine which easily equates to 1.5-liters. Since the all-new City and HR-V already come with a 1.5-liter DOHC i-VTEC engine, it stands to reason that the all-new BR-V will come with the same four-cylinder engine.

But when will HCPI actually launch the next-generation BR-V in the country? According to a dealership we contacted, the 7-seater will supposedly be launched next month. With dealers now accepting reservations for it, selling it next month means customers who placed a reservation could get their hands on the new crossover before the year ends. Hopefully, the BR-V will not encounter any supply/delivery problems like the HR-V is currently facing.

If you've been eyeing getting the all-new BR-V ever since it was previewed at PIMS 2022, now is the best time to visit your nearest Honda dealership and place a reservation for it.
