I thought Vitara Brazza was a good launch but BRV looks much better. Yes it is not as funky looking at the Maruti and yes the side shot makes the car look like and MPV rather then a SUV but yes the car has not got premium interiors but it has a Honda engine, 2 extra seats, Honda reliability. If they price this one right I am sure this is gonna be a hit.

I wonder why Honda is even bothering to showcase cars like Brio, Amaze & City in their standard Avatar at a Auto Expo. People get to see such cars regularly on the road. Nothing but fillers, maybe the space could have been utilized for better things like the new Civic etc.

I wanted to get the new Innova but am afraid it will be priced beyond my budget. The fixed middle seat of the Lodgy makes it a no for me. I don't like Hyundais and the Creta at best is a 5 seater. S-Cross looks too dated for a 10L+ car and is only 5 seats. So I am truly interested in the BR-V as a premium 5 seater than can double up as an occasional 7 seater with decent looks, having good fuel efficiency and Honda reliability.

Mobilio V petrol costs 9.31L ex-showroom Pune, while V(O) costs 10L ex-showroom. Considering the BRV offers more equipment, better interiors and a more differentiated front end as compared to the Mobilio - I suppose we can safely assume it would cost atleast a lakh more than the Mobilio.

A lame show by Honda this time. Really disappointed with the BRV. Honda tried pulling a fast one by using the cheap Brio platform, for Mobilio, and still haven't learnt a lesson and trying it again with BRV. Result is a very ugly car. Cant decide if its a MUV or a SUV - totally confused exterior. The side view looks ridiculous and whats with that 'broken' window line! Only saving grace is the 7 seater thing. And they'll price this thing at a premium for sure.

If the display car was indeed the production version, "premium" is not a word I would associate with it - not by a long shot. The interiors are very dull, and some components like the roof lining and the sunshade flaps are alto-quality.

Are they even cheaper than Duster interiors? I have seen a Duster from inside and I just could not believe they were charging this kind of money for such interiors.

Well, I am supposed to visit the Auto show tomorrow, yet, looking at the photos of Honda cars in this thread.The only one that seems to catch my attention is the Honda Accord.

Having driven one --Honda Accord 2007 AT-- extensively , the new one looks sumptuous . I sincerely wish that they offer the new one with at least the rev-happy 2.4 L clubbed with conventional AT which seems to reside in the Honda Accords that have been sold in India. I fear, anything less than 2.4 L and/or CVT plonked to it!, and I would not even look at it.

Additionally, I wish they do something about the braking of the Accord,it was never confidence inspiring --and the ABS would take away whatever confidence you had with the braking.

Not that bad, slightly better but far from premium.

Seems like Honda came to the Auto Expo just for the sake of representation. Really did not have anything new to offer not even body kitted current offerings!

On the BRV front, doesn't it look like a stretched Mobilio especially with the raked rear door glass etc. Not inspiring at all and looks very much MPVish than a SUV.

The other global offerings such as Accord are neat and understated.

Same thoughts here. On first look, I thought it indeed was Mobilio. With this interior quality, I don't think it will challenge Creta. Only advantage it has is the 7 seats whereas the competition offers only 5 seats, but what will be the fate of Mobilio.

The least they could have done is bring some different colors of their existing line-up. Amaze seriously needs a facelift, that interior is the worst in the segment which lead me to reject during my car purchase.

But with City selling like hot cakes and occupying almost 50% of their production capacity, I don't think they will change unless they planned to spruce up their production capacity.

Honda BR-V to launch on March 3, 2016


The BR-V will come with a seven-seat layout; expected to use tweaked versions of Honda’s existing 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines

So, Honda is launching it before the launch of Suzuki Brezza and will they be able to garner some sales from the people who are looking at Brezza?

I know that both are in different segments, but there surely would some overlapping in price between the lower variants of BR-V and the higher variants of Brezza.
