Honda unveils 2nd-gen BR-V in Indonesia
The Honda BR-V, which debuted six years ago, has now entered its second generation. The presentation event took place in Indonesia, one of the key markets for the crossover SUV.
The car remains a front-wheel-drive seven-seater with no other options. The exterior has been updated to resemble the N7X Concept, and standard equipment now includes LED lights, a 7-inch multimedia touchscreen, and keyless access. Higher trims come with an electronic assist package.
The manufacturer claims the 1.5-liter gasoline engine has been updated, but the specs stay the same at 121 PS (119 hp / 89 kW) and 145 Nm (107 lb-ft) of torque. You can choose between manual and CVT for the transmission, and the latter is allegedly new. The main improvement comes in the form of improved fuel economy, although specifics remain to be announced.
Sales will start in early 2022, Honda states.
