    The Honda BR-V boasts generous leg- and headroom that can accommodate all its passengers comfortably. Aside from that, the vehicle can carry as much as 520 liters of luggage if the the middle and third-row seats are to be folded.

    Since infotainment systems are one of the selling points for customers, buyers of the Honda BR-V are covered in the aforementioned element as it comes with a seven-inch touchscreen display.

    The system supports Bluetooth, audio streaming and USB input. The top-of-the-line 1.5 V CVT variation’s multimedia player has the capability to integrate mobile devices via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
