Honda Finally Unveils BR-V Facelift Version

  • Apr 29, 2019

Leading Japanese automobile behemoth Honda, has launched a mildly upgraded version of the entry-level BR-V sports utility vehicle (SUV) at the 2019 Indonesia International Motor Show, four years after the car made its global debut. With sports-themed interiors, overhauled exteriors, and an 8-inch all-new infotainment system, Honda has lent the BR-V a much needed midlife makeover. The India-specific BR-V has an ex-showroom price of INR9.51-13.81 lakh.

The 2019 BR-V is hauled by the same 1.5-litre petrol motor as in the India-specific model. It produces 119 PS of maximum power and 145 Nm of peak torque. The i-VTEC engine is mated to a 6-speed manual gear system or a continuously variable transmission (CVT) unit, similar to the model available in India. The Indian BR-V, however, also gets a 1.5-litre diesel motor as an option. It produces 100PS of maximum power and 200Nm of peak torque. The i-DTEC engine is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission system. The diesel BR-V is not available in Indonesia.

The Indonesia-specific BR-V now sports a new front fascia. The oversized chrome moustache grille has been replaced by a bold blacked-out unit with the Honda logo. A set of merged projector headlamps flank the grille. The LED daytime running lights (DRLs) in the headlamp unit lend the car a better on-road presence. The new front bumper has sharp creases that make the car more aggressive. The reflector strip at the back connects the split taillights and has now been replaced by chrome stripping.

The new BR-V dashboard looks pretty much similar. However, there’s now a dash of red on the door pad, seats, and the steering wheel, which makes the car sportier. The touchscreen system offers smartphone connectivity with Web Link.

The Honda BR-V faces competition from Maruti Ertiga, Mahindra Marazzo, and Renault Lodgy in the Indian market. Honda is yet to disclose when the car will be available in India.
