7 Reasons why the Honda BR-V is the perfect companion for your road trips
Long road trips are often filled with fun and excitement as you create wonderful moments with your family or friends. Like what they always say, it’s not about
the destination, it’s about the journey. And what better way to enjoy the long drives than with a dependable and fun companion? Admittedly, Filipinos love 7-seaters,
and the Honda BR-V is no exemption. Plus, it does qualify as a highway warrior for a couple of reasons. Let’s go by each one, shall we?
It has an SUV-like exterior
Exterior-wise, the Honda BR-V exhibits a fine mixture of sporty and rugged appointments. It’s treated with chrome embellishments and an extensive application of
black cladding giving the BR-V that SUV vibes. It also comes with 201 mm ground clearance which rewards drivers with better visibility and added confidence on the
Other notable design cues include its large pair of headlights that houses projector halogens. Opting for the 1.5 V CVT, on the other hand, adds LED
Daytime Running Lights (DRL) for added style and functionality. Standard across both the 1.5 V CVT and 1.5 S CVT variants are a set of 16-inch alloy wheels wrapped
in 195/60 tires. Overall, the BR-V is one stylish ride, all thanks to its SUV-like exterior.
Cabin space is generous
The Honda BR-V might have the appeal of an SUV though it still boasts the practical traits of an MPV. This then translates to a generous amount of cabin space,
allowing it to accommodate up to 7 passengers comfortably. Cargo loading is also no problem for the family and barkada, fold the third-row of the BR-V and
you get 470-liters of space. You can even increase it by up to 520-liters by tumbling the second-row seats up.
Standard 7-inch touchscreen display
Nowadays, infotainment displays have become one of the main selling points among customers, especially those who happen to be tech-savvy. Thankfully, the BR-V
comes standard with a 7-inch touchscreen display that supports various multimedia functions such as bluetooth, audio streaming and USB input. Opting for the
range-topping 1.5 V CVT variant will also add access to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for seamless phone integration.
A tried and tested engine that’s both powerful and efficient
The BR-V is the most powerful in its class all thanks to its tried and tested 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine paired with Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT).
This combo produces a healthy 120 PS and 145 Nm of torque, making it an ideal powertrain for highway drives. Also, not only does it excel in terms of power,
the BR-V also attained an impressive fuel economy rating of 22.58 km/L, allowing you to save more and lessen your trips to the gas station during long road trips.
