Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
Will be positioned above the Mobilio in all markets.
Following IndianAutosBlog’s rendering of the Honda BR-V crossover, Indonesian website Autonetmagz has also come up with a digital mockup of the BR-V, which is scheduled to be revealed at this year’s Indonesia International Motor Show which starts on August 20, 2015.
Details on the BR-V are limited at the moment. The crossover is announced to feature three-row seating, a 1.5-liter petrol engine and two “advanced” transmission options. Local media reports say that the engine will be the tried-and-tested 1.5-liter i-VTEC unit which produces 118 PS and 145 Nm of torque on the Indonesian-spec Mobilio.
The sketches also show the BR-V to get projector headlights, side body cladding, roof rails and large alloy wheels. The BR-V, Honda says is developed for the Asian markets by Honda R&D Asia Pacific Co., Ltd. (HRAP) in Thailand. It is expected to be positioned between the Mobilio and HR-V in markets like Indonesia, and above the Mobilio, but significantly undercutting the CR-V in countries like India where the HR-V is not available for sale.
The Indian premiere of the BR-V is expected to take place at the Auto Expo 2016, and a market launch could follow the same year. For India though, the BR-V will also get the 1.5-liter i-DTEC diesel engine.
