The BR-V has been confirmed for an Indian launch next financial year, with reports stating that it will enter production in April 2016 at Honda Cars India’s Tapukara facility. Officials of Honda Cars India confirmed to Indian Autos Blog that both petrol and diesel variants will be available.

Based on the Honda Amaze platform, the BR-V gets a different interior (in comparison to the Brio-series cars) for a more upmarket look. While parts like the steering wheel and center tunnel including the cupholders, accessory socket and the gear shifter are carried over from the Brio, designers have given the BR-V a new center console with a piano black finish and a touchscreen audio system. It also receives an automatic climate control system, though the panel is non-touchscreen unit.
