Aravind Jayachandran,

It goes without saying that I’m a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Will be unveiled at the 2015 Indonesian International Motor Show.

On August 20, Honda will unveil an all new compact crossover, dubbed as the Honda BR-V, at the 2015 Indonesian International Motor Show.

Based on the rear-end design sketch, IAB’s Shoeb Kalania has come up with a render of the production-spec BR-V’s rear end.

Ahead of its premiere, Honda had already revealed exterior design sketches of the BR-V, which shows a dynamic new design that borrows cues from Honda’s product range. Based on the rear-end design sketch, IAB’s Shoeb Kalania has come up with a render of the production-spec BR-V’s rear end.

The interior of the Honda BR-V is expected to be a step up over that of the Honda Mobilio, with better materials, build quality and design. With a 3-row layout confirmed, the Honda BR-V is expected to stand out against potential rivals like the Renault Duster and the recently-introduced Hyundai Creta, which offer a 2-row seating layout.

Under the hood, the Honda BR-V is confirmed to pack a 1.5-liter petrol engine (likely the 1.5-liter i-VTEC in the Honda City and Mobilio).

The BR-V is developed by Honda R&D Asia Pacific Co., Ltd. (HRAP) in Thailand, and will target key Asian markets. It could also be sold in South Africa, where products like the Brio and Mobilio are already available in the market (exported by Honda Cars India).

Under the hood, the Honda BR-V is confirmed to pack a 1.5-liter petrol engine (likely the 1.5-liter i-VTEC in the Honda City and Mobilio) paired to a 5-speed manual and a CVT. A bigger 1.8-liter i-VTEC petrol engine is also in the cards, reportedly. It’s unclear if Honda will offer an AWD option for the BR-V.
