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.

Launch expected to happen in May 2016.

Honda Cars India have announced that a teaser campaign for the highly anticipated Honda BR-V has commenced from today, suggesting that the launch date is nearing. The company has lined up initial media activities (journalist test drives) towards the end of April 2016.
