While official specifications are not yet available, HCPI did say that all variants are powered by a 1.5-liter DOHC i-VTEC engine. Based on what Indonesia gets, the PH-spec BR-V will likely put out 121 PS and 145 Nm of torque. And as mentioned earlier, it will be available with either a CVT or a manual transmission. In addition, the automaker mentioned the new BR-V now gets improved ground clearance and newly-designed 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 215/55/R17 tires on higher-grade variants.

Speaking of high-grade variants, HCPI added that both the VX and V variants of the new BR-V will get leather seats. Meanwhile, the S CVT and S M/T models will come with high-grade fabric seats. And as a first for the BR-V, all variants will now feature a manual height adjuster for the driver’s seat for added convenience. Last but not least, the new BR-V will be more spacious, more comfortable, and have better legroom and headroom thanks to the increase in size.
