Honda BR-V

Honda BR-VSource

The Honda BR-V is an aggressive, sporty-looking 7-seater crossover of Sedan and SUV. This affordable, cheap family vehicle is long-lasting and offers a composed and compliant ride to long-haul trips within the city.

Exterior Aesthetic Profile

BR-V comes with a wide chrome grille, chrome side skirts, and complementary door handles – pretty sure you are already convinced that it’s fine-looking. We have enormous taillights placed on the rear to give you optimum visibility. The aggressive styling on the front is your typical Honda Vehicle.

Powertrain Options

We have nothing overpowering in Honda BR-V – just a moderately powerful motor. There are two engine options to opt from – a 1.5-L gasoline engine and a 1.5-L diesel engine. The engine is paired with a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed CVT with two motors.

How spacious is it?

As mentioned before, the vehicle has enough space to accommodate seven people easily. In addition, the seating is modernistic and ergonomic, which speaks for the comfortability of the ride. However, the problem with the third row of the seats is insufficient headspace and legroom (but you might not always need to onboard seven people in the car, right?).

Interior Features

To enhance the user experience and safety, BR-V comes with side airbags, digital climate control, rear air vents, rear-view camera, power windows, power doors, keyless entry, infotainment system, and retractable side mirrors. And oh, the Beige sand interior definitely has our heart.

If you find anything amiss in this price range, you can browse and select from the list of SUV accessories listed online and personalize your experience.

Starting Price

BR-V was launched into major Asian automotive markets (and developing countries) like Pakistan to cater to the demand of people for cheaper vehicles. Hence, its starting price is as low as PKR 3,600,000/-. This is not too much, considering the rising SUV prices in Pakistan.
