The facelifted 7-seater from Honda gets an exterior redesign along with updates to its interior.
Honda has unveiled the facelifted BR-V 7-seater at the ongoing 2019 Indonesia International Motor Show. The Honda BR-V facelift revealed gets a host of cosmetic changes on the outside as well as on the inside. The BR-V was first unveiled in 2015 and this one is a major refresh since the launch of the current generation of the BR-V.
Coming to the changes made, the facelifted Honda BR-V gets a newly designed bumper and fresh fog lamp housing. The vehicle also gets a faux skid plate. The bumper now sports subtle chrome trims and a brushed aluminium finish on the chin. The grille on the updated BR-V looks similar to the other vehicles in the Honda family lineup. There is a shark-fin antenna on the top of the vehicle. Additionally, the new BR-V gets DRLs while the headlight inserts are also new. The side claddings get minor changes and the new 16-inch alloy wheels offer a diamond-cut finish.
The rear of the vehicle shows no major changes. The cabin of the Honda BR-V facelift gets a dark grey colour theme while the top end trims get red stitching on the upholstery, centre armrest and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
The new Honda BR-V gets only a 1.5-litre petrol engine. However, in India, the BR-V also gets a 1.5-litre diesel engine option. The 1.5-litre petrol engine aboard the BR-V makes 117 BHP at 6600 RPM and 145 Nm at 4600 RPM; the diesel unit makes 99 BHP and has a maximum torque output of 200 Nm. Since the BR-V has been on sale in India since 2016, we can expect Honda to launch the updated version of the vehicle here.
