    It has also improved in the aesthetics department as it is featured Honda’s new design language on its vehicles (with the fore and rear having a strong resemblance to the all-new Civic). The model sits on 17-inch wheels.

    On the inside, the all-new Honda BR-V is fitted with either black leather or plush fabric to ensure comfort to all occupants. Apart from that, it is also equipped one-push start system (except for the base trim), and a seven-inch touch-screen audio that is Android Auto and Apple Carplay compatible with as much as six speakers.

    As earlier mentioned, the all-new Honda BR-V is powered by a 1.5-liter double overhead cam i-VTEC engine with a maximum of 119 horsepower and 145Nm of torque. The mill is paired with either a six-speed manual transmission or a new continuously variable transmission (CVT). Amid the output, the model can do a 23.48-kilometer-per-liter consumption, based on the recent fuel economy run with the Automobile Association Philippines (AAP).
