The Digipad AVN system is exclusive to the top-end VX petrol and diesel grades, while parking sensors are available right from the S grade. The VX petrol and diesel variants start at INR 12.27 lakh and INR 13.22 lakh (both ex-showroom Delhi) respectively.

The 17.7 cm infotainment system, with the capacitive touch-screen features:

  • In-built satellite-linked 3D navigation
  • My Storage internal media memory of 1.5GB
  • Mirror Link support for smartphone connectivity
  • Internet access for browsing, email and live traffic via optional Wifi receiver
  • Voice commands for media, navigation and calling
  • Smartphone voice assistant activation
  • Bluetooth for hands-free telephone and audio streaming support
  • AM/FM Digital radio tuner, MP3/WAV, i-Pod/i-phone compatible
  • USB slots (2 Nos), Micro SD Card slots for maps and media (2 Nos.) & HDMI-IN port

This is a welcome move by Honda, which aims at freshening the BR-V for the festive season. As we had tested in the City and WR-V, Honda's Digipad is one of the best systems in the mass market segment, although it lacks Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
