After showing up at GIIAS in prototype form a few months ago, the Honda BR-V is back in production guise for the 2015 Thailand International Motor Expo.
Unsurprisingly, the “active sport crossover” looks virtually the same as the prototype and aims to grab a piece of the sub-compact crossover pie with a somewhat bold design and seven-seating capabilities. It’s being billed as an all-new model and will benefit from projector headlights combined with LED daytime running lights. The rear end will host C-shaped taillights also using light-emitting diodes and interconnected through a red bar on the trunk lid. It’s also got front and rear underbody protection, 16-inch alloys, roof rails, and plastic body cladding around the side skirts and wheel arches.
Under the hood it has a four-cylinder i-VTEC 1.5-liter naturally aspirated engine compatible with E85 fuel and developing 120 PS (88 kW) and 145 Nm (107 lb-ft) of torque. Power is sent to the road through a standard newly developed 6-speed manual or an optional CVT. This is a low-budget crossover, so naturally it only comes with a front-wheel drive layout.
Stepping inside the cabin, it can host up to seven people on three rows and has automatic AC and air vents for the front and second rows. All cars come with several standard safety features such as dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, Vehicle Stability Assist, and Hill Start Assist.
The standard Honda BR-V is currently on display at the 2015 Thailand International Motor Expo alongside another one fitted with several optional Modulo accessories.
