Honda has recently boomed in the compact SUV segment with the announcement of its all-new BR-V. This small SUV is based on the Brio's platform which is already used in hatchback (Brio), compact sedan (Amaze) and MPV (Mobilio). Although the SUV seems to be inspired by Mobilio in styling but rest of the characteristics are very different from the other Brio based products.
With a completely redesigned interior, raised ground clearance, beefed up wheel arches and athletic looks, the car is expected to be a seven seater. BR-V is anticipated to inherit the same 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol and 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engines from the Honda City. With the proposed launch in mid-2016 this SUV is likely to have a clear lead over the competitors.Text
