The second-generation 2023 Honda BR-V is set to finally launch on November 21, but the Japanese automaker has been busy teasing and flexing the capabilities of its seven-seater entry-level crossover SUV.
Aside from its strong SUV styling, advanced safety, and a generous amount of standard features, the BR-V, at least according to the automaker’s local road testing results–also excels in terms of fuel efficiency. The all-new model was put to the test as Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) recently conducted a fuel economy run in partnership with the Automobile Association of the Philippines (AAP).
The 2023 Honda BR-V topped the test with an impressive 24.70 kilometers per liter for the 1.5 V CVT variant, followed by the top-of-the-line 1.5 VX CVT, which registered 23.48 kilometers per liter, while the 1.5 S CVT achieved 22.61 kilometers per liter.
HCPI together with AAP drove the new BR-V at a total distance of 128 kilometers with the following parameters:
- No usage of cruise control
- Driving with an average speed of 70 to 80 kilometers per hour
- Low cool in thermostat setting, No. 1 for the blower setting
“The second-generation BR-V aims to strengthen Honda’s model lineup to the next level. This All-New 7-seater ticks the right boxes in a family vehicle, it’s got the tough character of an SUV, advanced technology and safety features, power, and efficiency to deliver great satisfaction for both the driver and its passengers,” said Mr. Masahiko Nakamura, HCPI President.
As teased previously, the new BR-V will be available in four variants with the following image prices:
- S MT – P1,100,000
- S CVT – P1,190,000
- V CVT – P1,300,000
- VX CVT – P1,390,000
