2017 Honda BR-V

updated: June 03, 2017 10:22 | launched: September 19, 2016

For those that need a people carrier but want a stylish mini crossover, the Honda BR-V is a great compromise for buyers that need a budget high-riding 7-seater. It has the underpinnings of the Mobilio MPV but the aesthetics of a crossover with its sleek looks, car-like ride and interior, and 1.5-liter i-VTEC powertrain. All variants of the BR-V will come with hill-start assist, anti-lock brakes and stability control as such.


On the short road course, the BR-V proved to be a smooth and quiet crossover. There really isn't much to be excited about in the powertrain department, but that doesn't mean it's not good. Power is decent and the delivery to the front wheels is smooth; we asked if an all-wheel drive version is possible in the future, but judging by the engineers' expressions, that might not happen.

To fully test the capabilities of the BR-V, Honda fully loaded the crossover with seven people. With the extra weight on board, the BR-V still felt stable on winding roads, even as we gained speed downhill. The brakes were good too, stopping straight and unfazed by the extra kilograms on all rows of seats.

There are many versions of the BR-V, but this 1.5V Navi Modulo we're driving is one of the highest up the totem pole, and we like it.
