The Honda BR-V is destined to be a best seller in all markets when launched and its success can already be seen. With the cabin space larger than the popular HR-V and looks very much like a crossover, it will compete directly with the Nissan Livina when it comes to Malaysia. The BR-V’s dimensions are 4,456 mm long, 1,735 mm wide and 1,650 mm tall. It is quite spacious, thanks to its high wheelbase of 2,660mm as well as its ground clearance of 201 mm is also appreciated as it makes driving smoother on Klang Valley roads.
It will be powered by Earth Dreams 1.5 liter i-VTEC petrol power-plant that will deliver 118 PS and 145 Nm torque. Honda also claims that this petrol engine will be accompanied with a new 6-speed CVT (continuously variable transmission) that will be offering a “sporty performance and great fuel efficiency”.
