After showcasing it at the Auto Expo last month, Honda India is now preparing to launch the BR-V in the country. The much-awaited compact SUV will go on sale soon and if we go by a recent report from the Economic Times, the launch could be scheduled by the end of May.

Now although it’s based on the Mobilio, the BR-V has a longer wheelbase, wider front and rear track. This new model also sits higher off the ground compared to the Mobilio. Inside, the layered dash looks more upmarket and is easily more appealing than that of the Mobilio.

The BR-V will use the same set of drivetrain options that currently power the City and the Mobilio. Honda, in fact, will offer a 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol and a 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engine with the BR-V. The diesel motor will be paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox, although what’s new for the BR-V is the availability of a 6-speed manual for the petrol-powered versions.

What will work in favour of the BR-V is that it combines the utility of a small SUV with the practical interiors of an MPV like the Mobilio. When launched, it will compete with hot selling models like the Hyundai Creta and the Renault Duster.
