Honda managed to sell 2,344 units in its first month of sale.

In its first month of launch, Honda managed to sell 2,344 units, which is significantly lower than the Mobilio’s figures in its first month of sales, according to the report. Its lukewarm response in the market could be attributed to the costlier price tag, despite not being as feature-rich as its more established rivals like the Hyundai Creta and Renault Duster.

Some of the features in the top-end BR-V VX grade include projector headlights, LED light guides, diamond-finished 16-inch alloy wheels, skid plates, automatic climate control, keyless entry with push button start, Bluetooth-enabled music system, steering mounted audio controls, rear AC and faux-leather seats.
