The engine comes mated with the honda patent Earth Dream Technology which enhances the performance as well as efficiency of the drive.
Structure and style
Have a close look at the new Honda BR-V. Does it remind you of Brio? Yes, you got it right! The new 7-seater has borrowed its styling cues from the absolutely peppy Honda Brio, especially from the side profile. The front, however, looks new but the sides are absolutely a replica of the Brio making it a little boring for a crossover.
Cabin to capture
Though, Honda BR-V has nothing new in this segment also but, the interior of Honda Jazz has ensured that Honda BR-V is a stunner and comforter from inside. The features, ergonomics, convenience and styling, everything is copied from the new Honda Jazz. Even the upholstery and dash looks very resembling making it easy for the customers who love the peppy cabin of Jazz.
Though Honda BR-V has grabbed the attention and is the new talk of the town but, the borrowed looks and features may turn down the interest of the prospective customers. With all the plagiarized aspects, looks like the manufacturer is out of creativity or too lazy to create something new!
