The upcoming Honda BR-V has been digitally imagined ahead of next month’s official introduction.
Honda is cooking up a Bold Runabout Vehicle (BR-V) for Asian markets and chances are it will be a stretched, seven-seat version of the XR-V sold only in China. Seen here is a speculative render based on an official teaser sketch released at the beginning of this week when Honda described the model as a “new generation crossover utility vehicle.”
The three-row BR-V was developed by Honda R&D Asia Pacific in Thailand and styled with a “tough and solid” body and will be shown as a prototype at the Indonesian Auto Show next month. The production version is due next year and will be offered with a 1.5-liter gasoline engine teamed up with a choice of two gearboxes.
Other details about the model are limited at this point, but Honda promises it will pack lots of safety kit as standard, along with an increased ground clearance and “great fuel efficiency” while delivering “sporty performance.”
We will know more on August 20 when the BR-V prototype will debut at the Gaikindo Indonesian International Auto Show.
