Honda has launched the facelift of its 7-seater MPV, the BR-V in Indonesia. With overhauled exteriors, sporty-themed interiors and an all-new 8-inch infotainment system, Honda has given the BR-V a much needed midlife makeover.
The Indonesia-spec BR-V facelift gets a new front fascia and we like it. Gone is the huge chrome moustache grille and in comes a bold blacked out grille with the Honda insignia. Flanking the grille are a set of projector headlamps which merge into it. The headlights also feature LED DRLs to give the BR-V more presence on the road. The front bumper is also brand new with sharp creases and lines that lend the BR-V a more aggressive look.
Honda’s BR-V has been struggling to gain traction in India, thanks to stiff competition from the Marazzo, Ertiga and the Lodgy. There is no news regarding the timeline for the launch of the BR-V facelift in India. The sales of the current BR-V in India have been on a downward spiral and the facelift could give it another lease of life. However, with the new BSVI emission norms coming into effect next year, Honda might choose to bring in the newer HR-V as a replacement in India.
