All-New Honda BR-V Media Drive in the City of Pines

Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. flexed the power and capabilities of the recently launched All-New Honda BR-V before select media partners in a 500-kilometer drive to and from the City of Pines. Complemented by Baguio’s spectacular scenery, the test drive demonstrated the 7-seater’s dynamic driving performance, improved comfort, and the Honda SENSING suite of safety features in the VX CVT Honda SENSING.

Strong SUV Appeal

Exterior-wise, Honda’s latest 7-Seater SC-SUV takes a departure from its predecessor, with the All-New model flaunting a strong SUV appeal, with its higher ground clearance, dynamic body shape, stylish frontend, its set of available 17-inch alloy wheels (for CVT variants), and its newly designed LED headlights and taillights which finely illuminate during night-time.

Other exterior features also include LED fog lights for the VX CVT Honda SENSING, V CVT, and S CVT variants, while the auto on-off headlight function is standard on the top-of-the-line variant. Plus, for better convenience, the All-New BR-V features Power Adjustable side mirrors across all variants, while the power folding side mirrors with integrated LED turn signals are available on both the mid-tier and top-of-the-line trims.

An SUV that shines in terms of practicality

The All-New BR-V is A++ when it comes to overall value. Aside from its strong SUV stance, the All-New 7-seater also shines in terms of practicality all thanks to its spacious cabin that has been significantly improved for both second and third-row occupants. The media participants also took advantage of its flat folding seats which became useful in loading their baggage and other larger items for the test drive event.

Both the driver and its passengers will be delighted with the creature comforts of the All-New Honda BR-V. For in-car entertainment, it features a 7-inch touchscreen display audio that supports various functions such as Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and USB connection.

Leather upholstery is exclusive to the VX CVT Honda SENSING and V CVT variants, while the S CVT and S MT are treated with high-grade fabric. The All-New BR-V now comes with a seat height adjuster for the driver and other high-tech tech features such as Remote Engine Start, and Walk Away Auto Lock.

Performance that promises an engaging drive and impressive efficiency

Climbing up the steep winding roads of Baguio via the Asin road was a breeze for the All-New BR-V with the ever-reliable 1.5L i-VTEC engine which now features DOHC, delivering the best in class 121 PS and 145 Nm of torque. The engine is paired with a new Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) which achieves a smoother and more efficient drive.

The recently concluded fuel eco run with the Automobile Association Philippines (AAP) attests with 24.71 kilometers per liter efficiency of the 1.5 V CVT, 23.49 kilometers per liter of the top-of-the-line 1.5 VX CVT Honda SENSING, and 22.62 kilometers per liter of the 1.5 S CVT.

Safety for Everyone

Extending the Honda SENSING line of vehicles is the All-New BR-V, and with that, the media participants got the chance to experience some of its state-of-the-art safety features on an actual driving setup:

  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) - keeps the vehicle at the center of the visible road lanes and in the best driving position as it guides you to follow the flow of the road.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) - helps maintain a stable speed at a driver-determined distance from the vehicle in front.

Other Honda SENSING features for the All-New BR-V also include Collision Mitigation Brake System (CMBS), Road Departure Mitigation System with Lane Departure Warning (RDM with LDW), Lead Car Departure Notification, and Auto-High Beam (AHB). It also comes standard with Speed Sensing Auto Door Locks, Dual, Side Airbags, Reverse Camera with Guidelines, Driver and Front Passenger Seat Belt Reminder, Rear Seat Reminder, Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), Hill Start Assist, Security Alarm, Immobilizer, Emergency Stop Signal, and ISO Fix Child Seat Anchor.

Side curtain airbags and the Honda LaneWatch Camera are exclusive on the top-grade VX, while Parking Sensors are available on both the VX and V variants of the BR-V. With its substantial safety features, the All-New BR-V was awarded a 5-star rating in the latest ASEAN NCAP testing (New Car Assessment Program for Southeast Asia).

“What makes the BR-V stand out is what customers appreciate about it especially when they have experienced it first-hand. This is captured in the theme “Brave the next level” -- In the midst of uncertainties and unpredictable changes, we long for something reliable, something we can trust. We appreciate advanced technology, but at the same time we don’t want to be alienated by it, we want the comfort it brings and its benefits. We definitely will not compromise safety and quality as we aim to deliver superior value throughout the ownership experience” said Mr. Masahiko Nakamura, Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. President.

Undoubtedly, the All-New Honda BR-V’s confident SUV appeal and comfort upgrades with its practical features deeply considered customers’ expectations, with next-level performance, safety, and convenience.
